Boutique Shopping....the smart way~


One of my favorite boutiques is The Royal Standard. I window shop there often and had my eyes on these...

It's a paper mache' trash can. You can buy them for 18.00 with your inital.

Or you can wait till they drop down to 5.00 and only a few letters to pick from. So I changed that "J" into an "H"...

Just because our economy is a bit scary doesnt mean we have to stop shopping in our favorite boutiques...

We just have to shop smart....So go ahead and shop...shop smart!

  4. Now aren't you the smart Lady to accomplish that...no, really you have such a talent. It looks much better as an "H" than a "J".

  6. Only you could change that J to an H and make it look perfect! I love all you manage to do with paint.
