Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

Code RRR39 "Sparkle and Ribbon" Challenge
I stumbled upon a site called "Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings" today and was instantly smitten! I thought it would be fun to take their challenge to create something using the theme of Sparkle and Ribbon. The project must have some ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on it. So since I have tons of Altoid tins in my scrap room to recycle I thought this would be a practical and yet cute entry. I painted the tin with pink acrylic paint then after it dried I applied Ranger's Distress crackle paint, clear rock candy, to the top of the tin. After this dried I used All My Memories Twill Ribbon and Tim Holtz's idea-ology TRIMMINGS that had a little Glimmer Mist spritzed on them. To finish I placed a golden pearl made by Queen and Co. in the center of three of the flowers. Voila!
