Something for the Men!

Ok, maybe that title suggests something . . . .well, let's just say this blog is rated G. LOL. With that said, this week I am sharing a few items from a new category on my site. It is called The Gentlemen's Corner. I only have a few items so far, but I have many things in the works. I know the topic has come up about how there just aren't many items for men in some of our boutiques. With a little inspiration from my husband I decided to venture away from frilly and pink (only from time to time of course). I started with a few notebooks and created some valets with vintage cigar boxes. So here is a peak and I will be adding more new goodies soon. Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for visiting!

Great idea, Carrie. The guys always need a place to put their pocket stuff. I know the men in my life would be happy to know where the every elusive nail clipper and shoe horn is. They always misplace them

Hi Carrie,
What a wonderful idea. I, too, have a collection of old and rare cigar boxes....never knew just what to do with them. Actually, I just love the way they look. Yours are really "handsome". BTW, I hope you had a chance to check out my blog this week. Someone very special is featured!!
