Scrabble...dressed up in their Sunday best

My previous post was going to be my White Wednesday
post...until I created these.
{you can still read my previous post too lol.}
I call these
Scrabble in their Sunday best.
I must admit that I got the idea to paint them white
from the latest Country Living magazine, but I
wanted to make them even prettier so I also added
ribbon and roses.

When I saw the holders painted white it was one of those,
*why didn't I think of that* moments.

I left one of the ribbon tails long so it can be swooped
in front of it like they are on my table.

I have a few listed in my Etsy store and I can also take
custom requests.
Happy WW and Happy Thanksgiving!!
I will also be linking up with Kathleen this week. Blessings~

I like the holders painted white! Look cute with the ribbons as well!

Michelle said...

Hi Sandi, Those are adorable, little trays and ribbon, wondering if you could wipe alight whitewash over the actual letters and still see the black and numbers {a thoughts}. Your email functions does not work, but I'm wondering, I seem to be technically challenged here, how to show at the bottom of a post the "...you might also like...with three previous posts photos? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How pretty, Sandi! I love the addition of the crinkly seam binding (my latest obsession!) and the roses. So pretty!

Wonderful idea! I also love the little birds in the post below, too sweet. I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.

Hi Sandi,
These are too cool. Wouldn't they be great on a mantel too! Love them!
That pillow you scored at Home Goods is great. I don't see anything like that at our TJMaxx. Oh I am so excited for your new addition. She's going to be a doll!!!
I know your Thanksgiving is going to be quiet this year, but you could always hop in the car and come to Idaho. Oh no, maybe not...we got 10" of snow yesterday. But you're invited anyway!
hugs to you...

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend...celebrating all of your blessings! THANK YOU for all of the sweetness you show to me!
