New bachelor on the block

Check out this adorable little vintage bachelor's chest. This piece was initially in the Rock Hill location but I decided to give it a fresh coat of blue chalk paint and put it out on the BlackLion sales floor. I remembered to make notes on the color mixture formula this time....1 part Provence to 3 parts Pure White. Love this fresh blue color..."Tiffany Blue". I am sure I will be using this blue color again!

Goodies for the basket

You can find lots of goodies for Easter baskets at the BlackLion. In fact, the store is so large with merchandise changing often, you could probably shop for an entire day! Here are a few great ideas for baskets from the Brushed Bureau (space 370)...

Mama Soaps: Made from 100% natural ingredients like olive oil, lavendar, sage. My husband is super allergic to most fragrances and detergents but these soaps moisturize and clean his skin without breakouts!

Felt Happy Flowers: These flower pins are hand-made by me from re purposed sweaters. The fabric is washed in hot soapy water and felted so the fibers become dense and shaped into petals and balls.

Quotable magnets: These magnets and canvas art come in several different up-lifting quotes. Great to put on the frig as a daily reminder!
