January's theme is "New Beginnings". Please choose your favorite item that best fits this theme in the poll on the left hand sidebar. Thanks to all who entered!

In the kitchen cupcake towels by Baby Deary
These are towels that can be used anywhere, especially in the kitchen! The crocheted butterfly pins give the cupcakes such a new beginning feeling! When I think of butterflies, I think of this quote: "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, he became a butterfly!" I have had many people buy the cupcakes as gifts for housewarming & engagement parties! Here's to new beginnings!

White is a sign of New...and it's the Beginning of Winter so bring on some snow!

Welcome Sign from Embellished Bayou 
I gave this antique ceiling tile a new beginning by turning it into a door hanger. Welcome 2011! 

Wetlands Pitcher from Hurricane Pottery  
Hand thrown stoneware pitcher, thrown by my husband, with "wetlands" slip details and handle applied by me. I chose the glaze combinations and he mixed and applied the glazes. (The swamp colored glaze flows around the grassy slip details.) Not a new beginning for us really, but hopefully the wetlands will be growing and making new beginnings this spring!

Every new day begins with a sunrise

Spring is around the corner from Vivy's Closet

Snow Dove from Dusty Oak Ornaments
This beautiful snowy white dove represents peace and new beginnings. I crafted the ornaments using sheer organza ribbons and a unique lacy trim. The bow is made with matching blue and iridescent ribbon, golden leaves and snow kissed branches. Celebrate January by placing this lovely ornament on an ornament stand and displaying it on your desk or tabletop.
