Birdhouse, Prims and Vintage

Here are some neat old primitive birdhouses in one of the antique booths in my little country store. They have been well used. One of our little feathered friends must have gained weight and needed to put in a wider door! I wonder how many years ago that has been? Don't you just love fun finds like this? If you would like to know more about these birdhouses, please email me for specifics, more photos and pricing.

I'm having a Mother's Day Giveaway. Dont forget to enter to win. Good Luck!

God Bless,

Fabulous New Candles At Our Little Country Store

Please welcome Allison and her delicious country candles to Celene's Treasure Chest country store. Don't these beauties make your mouth water just looking at them? Allison's candles are heavily scented soy blend candles made in her kitchen while her 2 year old clings tightly to her ankle. Not only are these the most gorgeous candles you've ever seen, but each layer of "ingredient" has it's own scent. The crusts smell like pie crust or baked bread, the fruits smell lucious and the filling smells like the fruit in combination with baking spices, sugar, vanilla, etc. So run to the bakery, light one of these babies and invite your mother-in-law over for fresh baked goodies. You'll earn a few "brownie" points (hee, hee) and she'll never know the difference.

Strawberry Peach Smoothie

Comes in a 16oz soda fountain glass and contains a mixture of ice cream and strawberry & peach syrups. It is topped off with whip cream, fruit, syrup, and a straw. The average burn time for a candle this size will be roughly 60-80 hours.

Price: $12.95

Cinnamon Roll Bowl Fillers

These are made with a special craft dough, baked, sprinkled with cinnamon and spices, and glazed with a special triple scented wax topping . You'll receive an assortment of three sizes to make up your mix and they'll arrive freshly baked in a bakery bag ready to be displayed in your favorite prim treen or bowl. Mini (1 inch)to medium (2-2.5inch)to jumbo (3+ inches). You get a bakers dozen.

Price: $7.99

Strawberries & Cream Dream Cake

This one has a 6" cake base with piped edges and combed sides, triple scented in Allisons's blend of cake bake. This cake measures roughly 6" round by 4+ inches high and is topped off with ripe, luscious strawberries and yummie strawberry syrup. The average burn time is approx. 45-60 hours.

Price: $16.99

Gooey Banana Split

Start out with chocolate sauce and banana halves, then add three scoops of vanilla ice cream, more chocolate, nuts, and a cherry and you've got a sinfully delicious old fashioned banana split!

Jewelry is a Girl's Best Friend

Hey ya'll! Today I've decided to show you some of the sparklin' purties I carry in my little country store. One of the crafters who display their wares at Celene's Treasure Chest is Jewelry Junction. They make the most beautiful jewelry! All their stuff is hypo-allergenic and won't tarnish, nor will it turn you green! It's made from an alloy of zinc, iron and nickel. It wears like stainless steel, looks like silver and is surprisingly lightweight. I have never been able to wear anything but solid gold or I break out, but this doesn't do that to me. I've been wearing Jewelry Junction's creations for about a year now with no problems. They use glass beads and semi-precious stones in their jewelry, which is why it is so beautiful. Some of the semi-precious stones used are Agate, Red Jasper, Onyx, Rose Quartz and Celestine. Don't ask me which is which, I am clueless! If anyone knows the difference between these stones will you please fill me in? Take a look and let me know what you think of it.

These matching chandalier earrings and bracelet are made with blue marbled glass stones.

This is set with semi-precious stones in a lovely deep chocolate brown with dark veins running throughout.

Pretty greenish/aqua colored marbled glass stones with semi-precious chips.

A lovely blue veined stone in this pair.

A variety of bracelets made from glass and semi-precious stones and chips. The bottom one is made from stones and actual bull horn!

This is similar to Turquoise, just a little darker.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of the purties Jewelry Junction makes. I sure enjoy having her purties in my store!

Bracelets $10.00
Earrings $8.50
Sets $16.50
Shipping is FREE
Bracelets lengths and earring sizes vary. Contact me for specifics. Can be sold individually instead of sets if you so choose.
Until next time. God Bless,
