boutique recap

Whew...now that the boutique business is over I can reveal all and and tell all and thank all of you who came out and spent part of your weekend with us!  We had such a fun time!!!  You may remember when I extended this invitation to come to my house and shop and spend time with friends and cross gifts off your Christmas list and eat yummy treats, etc.  Well, it turned out to be just be that! 

For those of you that couldn't make it I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see all the lovely merchandise and if you needed something had the information you needed to get your hands on some of these quality items.



Ryan is such a talented artist!  She had a few options when it came to her original artwork: the collage artwork inspired by bright colors, fabrics, and her sweet grandmother.  and her original stamp art collection.  Ryan hand carved the stamps herself and then created the art on canvas.

Ryan also offers personalized collage art that you can have done for you, your family, or friends.  It seriously is too cute!  So fun!


We tried to group everything else by "like" items together.  So we had quite the adorable "kid's corner" in my living room:



Caitlin made the cutest onsies with little animals and ruffles.  I love me a baby in ruffles!  They were all so well done...kind of made me want a kid...(not really though mom, calm down!).  She also made some baby blankets that matched some of the onsies with the little animals.  too cute.  seriously.

Lele made adorable dresses for little girls...all different sizes.  The one pictured above with the navy and white polka dot was my absolute favorite!  She does such a great job on the dresses.  She also made coordinating burp cloth and paci-clip sets which completely sold out!  These make great little baby gifts! as well as some pillows and baby blankets. 

I painted a few canvases that I thought would be sweet to have in a nursery and made a wall full of hair bows!  The bow ranged in sizes in prices and were a huge hit!  every girl loves a hair bow!

CHRISTMAS!



we busted out the Christmas tree just for the boutique!  I loved our little Christmas section.

I made ball ornaments to help celebrate the season, baby's first Christmas (boy and girl), and first Christmas together.  growing up my mom's tree was always filled with so many special ornaments that represented wonderful memories.  I was happy to help put memories on other people's trees this year!  I also painted a Christmas canvas!

Lele made the cute little owl ornaments...aren't they precious?!

Caitlin made the beautiful paper Christmas wreaths.  I LOVED them!  she also made a coordinating garland that matches the wreaths.  AND a snowflake garland as well as red and green crepe paper garland (sorry these aren't pictured). 

The rest of the dining room were more of the "home goods" type items:


Caitlin made pillows of all sorts...aren't the birds cute?!  It's a grey pillow with yellow and cream birds.  so fun!  Lele also made a few pillows and the handbags. I painted the canvases and made the wood picture frames.  I sold out of my wood frames, so if you have a custom order, let me know!


Caitlin made the pennant dish towels.  It's a flour sack towel with stitched on pennants of such fun fabric.  She gave me one for Christmas last year and I get so many compliments on it in my kitchen!  She also made the dish mats!  LOVE THESE!  (the red, pink and blue on the right is my FAVORITE! it makes me want to paint my kitchen blue and keep that towel out).  The mats are great...terry cloth on one side and cute fabric on the other.  They are great for helping clean up big meals and dry dishes...oh wait, I think big meals are in everyone's future...contact Caitlin to get one today!

I hand stitched some dish towels.  I had a few Christmas ones as well some that said "faith hope love" all of them sold out so let me know if you need more.  and I hand stamped some stationary.



lele made these super cute zipper pouches and towel aprons.  I gave the towel aprons as some hostess gifts back in March for my wedding and they were such a HUGE hit.  These are practical and cute...perfect for all your baking around the holidays while company is in town!

To those of you who came, thank you so so so very much!  We had such a great weekend and are looking forward to the 2nd home boutique (stay tuned!)
