Goodies

The items from my UpperCase Living party arrived over the weekend. I ended up getting $50 in free products so I was pretty excited! Here is my FREE hostess gift along with a 12x12 tile I bought at Lowe's for under $2.
And here's the finished product:

Remember my Goodwill mirrors from this summer?

I got a fleur de lis as one of my free products from UCL as well and put on one of the mirrors.
Not a huge difference, just a little somethin' somethin' to make it more interesting to look at. I haven't done anything with my other UCL products yet, but I'll be sure to post them once I do.

I worked on a gift for my Pink Christmas girlfriend this weekend. At least one of the gifts needs to be homemade so I decided to hand embroider an M and frame it.
The red is prettier in person than it looks here. It took me a long time as this is only the 3rd item I've hand embroidered. I had a hard time with the curves and had to rip out a lot of stitches. But, it's done and I hope she likes it. I have one other small project I'm working on for her and I'll show it once I'm done.
44 days till Christmas :o)

I have never heard of UpperCase Living and am on my way to Google it next. Wow. That fleur de lis is great and I love what you did with the tile! And those Goodwill mirrors are such a cool find.

Uppercase Living is the greatest! We started selling it because we liked it so much.

I like the embroidery you did. I thought you did a great job! Plus, the decor was really beautiful from UpperCase. Can fellow bloggers buy from you if you have another party???
