These elegant lace toppers for boots is a great accessory to have with any style of boot. Gives that special pizzazz and "charm" to any outfit for a night out or just everyday wear. Great with a dress, shorts or stretch to be worn over pants. There is not added bulk to tuck into your boots.

Three Styles are being revealed:

The Flower Lace N' Boots- include a rolled Lace Rose that is sewn to the upper edge of the lace topper.

One size fits most. Should you have questions concerning the size you may contact me and we can make them special to your size.

The Ole Rugged Cross

The Ole Rugged Cross
Hi, Everyone!  Hope your week is going well.  It has been busy and non-stop for me, but a good one.  My stitches are healing and I am starting to feel much better after having my small surgical procedure on Thursday to remove the inflamed cyst that had been making me feel so bad.  Friday night Mr. Prince Charming and I sat up my booth space to be prepared for the Annual Amish Auction bright and early Saturday morning.  The weather was very corporative and couldn't have asked for a better September day in Oklahoma.   There was a great turn out and as always it is so nice to meet new friends and customers and catch up with returning ones.  I love to hear the stories of how they are using something they have purchased from me in the past. 
Needless to say my big adventure this week has been trying to replenish and make new items to put into my booth for the upcoming show.  I will be at Sooner Trade Days located at the Durant Choctaw Casino starting Friday, September 20th thru Sunday, September 22nd.  Drop by for a visit and see what I have been working on.  I may even have a few items available to start your Christmas decorating or shopping.  ( I hear that Christmas is only 97 days away.)
I have started another exciting adventure this week that will be on going.  I am now a Proud member of Shabby Cottage Shops.  Shabby Cottage Shops is a great online shopping mall, go by and take a look at all the terrific shops.  I can't wait for all the new adventures that this will be bringing.  Totally EXCITED about all the possibilities!!!
Well enough of my rambling for today, I want to share with you The Ole Rugged Cross.  I have had this idea in my head for a while and finally went out and got the piece of old vintage ceiling tile that I had been saving just for this project.  Mr. Prince Charming looked at me like I had lost my mind.  He thought it was too rusty and in bad shape and that I shouldn't bother.   Sooooo..... I thought well maybe he is right.  (Shhhh....don't tell him I said or thought that!) I kept going back picking it up and looking at it.   Yeah, I thought I can do this, it is going to look AWESOME! Yes, it has ragged edges and it has lots of rust, and the paint is chipped. know what I always say " The more rust and chippy the better!"  I got out the sander and wire brush and went to town on the rust.  After getting it all cleaned up, Mr. Prince Charming decided that maybe I was right (he didn't say that out loud, but I know he had to be thinking it), cut a board to be placed behind it for me and helped me attach the cross.   I LOVE IT!!!  I think about the song we sing in Church about the Ole Rugged Cross when I look at it.  I think it turned out really cute, just the right amount of chippy and rust for the cross.  I would love to keep it for myself, but I have a friend that reminds, me all the time that you can't keep everything you make for yourself.   (Sigh) 
Stay Charmed,

A Shabby Chic Horse

Today, I am sharing with you a treasure, a friend found at a yard sale about a year ago.  A handmade hobby horse.  It was love at first!!! The minute I saw it, I knew that it had to be painted, distressed and she needed a shabtabulous mane and tail. I love the way she turned out.  Not too shabby! ;)  
My wonderful Mr. Prince Charming helped me out with the sanding. 
 Here she is in all of her glory waiting for her new home and special little girl to love.  Paisley, my daughter, thinks that I should keep it.  She is a photographer and I think she is having visions of some great photo opportunities using this as one of her props. 

Have a great week and I hope to see you Saturday at the 26th Annual Clarita Amish School Consignment Auction. 
Stay Charmed,
