Greencrafted Display Boxes
and OWH Bloghop Winner

My sister shop SalonDArte has branched out to the local Indie Craft shows. I am active in artfully repurposing things and my table display for the craft show is my latest conquest. I was racking my brain trying to figure out what to use to display my paper ornaments...and eureka - the tequila gave me a bright idea!!! My husband loves Milagros tequila and it comes in this fancy paperboard box, that is hard to throw away, so I've been saving them for a "special project" that my girlfriend and I can make.

Well, we were thinking lamps, but a new calling arose. LIGHTED ORNAMENT DISPLAY!!! I gently pried off the lid which already has holes in the top and bottom to nestle the bottle safely and added a battery powered LED puck light and VIOLA!!! I just had to add some fishing line to hang from and a square of pretty paper to the bottom to cover up the hole. I didn't even paint over all of the foil stamping on the outside - it sort of adds to the charm - and all the guys dragged into impromptu date night shopping think they are so cool!

This is my SalonDArte booth at the Dada Bazaar on Thursday night at Dada Restaurant in Delray Beach, Florida. This is a monthly event with 15-20 vendors and live music at this restuarant that resides in a historical house. I have to admit I feel quite at home at this venue with it's laid back atmosphere, porches to lounge on and it's cool, artsy vibe.

I'm so happy it's the weekend again so I can catch up on my ZZZ's, going to the "Trash to Treasure" warehouse and take some time revisiting some of my new crafty friends I met online last weekend. If you have some free time, check out last weekend's Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop for great cards, and how to's.

Now to announce my blog candy giveaway from 69 comments left on the last post....
