My Charming Designs plate arrived today !

It is fun to walk to the mail box when you have a parcel from Laurie at Charming Designs waiting for you. Laurie had a giveaway a short while ago and I was the lucky winner! This lovely cottage style plate with chalkpaint and hand painted roses arrived today. Isn't it sweet ! Thank you so much Laurie! It displays my buttons and floral appliques very nicely.

Laurie also makes adorable birdie pincushions and combines them with vintage china, baby shoes, buttons and other vintage treasures. She sells her charming designs on eBay and Etsy. Take a peak at her latest creations ! Thank you again, Laurie.
She even made the shipping box look pretty ~ what a sweetie!

Hi Karen,
Okay, now I'm jealous LOL! That really is the sweetest little plate. Can't wait to see it in person


Nancy said...

Oh, how sweet Karen...Your plate is lovely. Love your little treasures on the plate.

I love her little birdies...and her little vintage touches.

Congratulations on your win!
Hugs, Nancy

What a great prize to win!!! I love it when people go the extra mile and make the packaging just as yummy as the gift!! Congrats on winning!!

I clicked on the link you provided to "Charming Designs," but it took me to a blog that only had a post from 2006. I couldn't find a link to Etsy or Ebay. Would you mind emailing me a link? I'd love to check out her goodies. Thanks!!


Karen said...

Hi Michelle, I fixed my typo so the link will work now. Sorry about that.

Laurie's ebay link is at the top of her blog. She lists items every few days.

It is a charming plate. I love it! Karen.

Karen said...

"Michele" oops again (it's 12:30am so I guess I should go to bed). Nite Nite gals! Thanks for visiting. Karen

Thank you so much for showing the little plate...if you want...you can put a couple coats of varnish on the chalkboard paint and it will make it shine. you can email me and I'll help you out..lm.sm@comcast.net. Laurie

Charmingdesigns said...

I need to go find your email...lol. Thank you for all the help. I just changed my ebay to l.charmingdesigns..it said just "charmingdesigns" was taken. so I stuck the l in front, what do you think...better. Laurie

Karen said...

Hi Laurie, That's Great! I am glad you were able to revise your ebay name to match your blog name. It makes it easier for people to find you, especially if they are searching on ebay. It is a great name too!

~ Karen.
