These cute little things are from Pear Tree Greetings. I seriously LOVe this site for cards and such. I stumbled upon them when I did Annie's announcement. They have super cute designs and for great prices. Really. I do not like spending a lot on cards and I think they have good prices. And nope. No incentive for me telling you that. Just a good old fashioned opinion.
The cards I picked are postcards, which I think is the best part. A lot easier too since I didn't have to stuff and seal (I hate the licking part. Yuck!) all sorts of envelopes.
Out of all the pics there was just something so special about the one I picked.
My sweet Annie's playful smile. Bub protecting her and LOVing her as she always does. It could not have been more perfect.
I even kept one up for us to enjoy.
Now go out and have yourself a LOVely Friday! I am heading out for some more Christmas shopping!

A new favorite thing of mine to paint are jewelry boxes. Already so pretty and even better after they've been upcycled.
This was a suggestion of my fabulous sister. She had bought one for Annie as a sweet "welcome" gift. Ever since she has been finding a bunch for us and we've been busy painting them up.
Tell us what you think about them!
This sweet heart piece has already sold too! It went to a friend of mine and I know it will be taken care of very well! I hope his wife LOVes it as much as I did.
It is painted in Annie Sloan's Paris Grey. The real stuff this time! Distressed and sealed
with a clear wax.
Another one all ready for a new home is this LOVely gal.
I cannot get over the details on this one. The detailed legs. The hardware. The wood
showing through the paint.
She is painted in Annie Sloan's Louis blue. I distressed and sealed it with clear and dark wax. I LOVe using the dark wax but it does take time to know how to use it. You use too much and the look can be way off. Use it right and the piece ages perfectly. The wood gets pronounced more. It really can be perfection.
The Louis Blue box is available here.
Hurry up and check her out. She will go fast!
