Where’s Rose?

Homemade dress a part of home.

During the dry winter months, my children know where to find the hand lotion.

“Where’s Rose?” they will ask.

Rose is the name of a woman we’ve never met, but she made an adorable bottle dress that I keep draped over our family hand lotion. When the kids need moisturizer, they look for the dressed up bottle and call it “Rose.”

As someone who sews, I’ve become attached to the cover. I know how much time Rose put into choosing the fabric, cutting out the pattern and sewing everything in place. I also know the satisfaction and joy she felt when the project was complete.

Rose made the dress out of yellow calico material. She added lace around the edges and collar, two pleats in the middle and ribbon ties in the back.

Her finished product is homemade and a part of our home. Thanks Rose, wherever you are.

Back to School — College Coasters

Coasters are great gifts for college freshmen.

Many people are stumped when looking for a clever gift idea for returning college students. ChatterboxBeach has a solution – fabric coasters. We add fabric coasters to a college freshman care packages. They are attractive and useful for young students who need a place to set their glass while they study diligently for hours.

First Anniversary — Celebrating With Apples and Paper

Welcome new teachers with a hand-appliqued apple pillow.

ChatterboxBeach is celebrating its 1st Anniversary throughout August by highlighting some of our top-selling items and the paper gifts we offer.  After all, ettiquette says paper is the way to observe a first anniversary!

 

The first sale we made when we opened our Etsy.com website a year ago was an apple pillow. We created the pillow with teachers and back-to-school in mind, but it also makes a great gift for anyone who likes apples or decorates with country decor. If you know someone who is starting his or her first job in the classroom, send him or her the pillow with a “good luck” and “best wishes” message before the school year starts. The 10- by 10-inch pillow features an appliqued red apple on the front and accent fabric on the back.

 

We want to thank our customers for a great first year and look forward to highlighting our paper gift products throughout the month.

Christmas in July — Dressing up the bottle

Dressed to impress

Wine is an essential part of many holiday meals and parties. But presenting the hostess with a nice bottle of wine in a brown paper bag makes no sense. If someone goes to the trouble of picking out a special bottle of Chardonnay or Merlot, why not present the gift in an attractive style.

 

Chatterbox makes bottle gift-wrapping easy during the holidays with a variety of attractive wine bottle covers. Our favorite is an adorable Santa apron. The cute accessory adds sparkle to any dinner table décor and acts as a conversation starter for holiday parties.

 

If wine is not your beverage of choice, the apron also dresses up sparkling cider, dish soap, olive oil, hand lotions or whatever bottle you would like to display in a festive fashion.

 

It is the perfect gift for a hostess, teacher, neighbor or family member.

 

As an added bonus, the apron fits dolls 16 to 18 inches. All doll owners would love to get this apron for Christmas, birthday or maybe in their stocking. After your guests have gone home, your grandchild’s American Girl doll will look fantastic in this for the holidays.

Festively wrapped

Thinking about your Christmas table and gift-giving now might offer you more time to enjoy the holidays with friends and family in December. Extra bottle covers also are good to have in case someone you weren’t expecting (and didn’t buy for) stops by with a present or invites you to their home. Slip the cover over a bottle of wine and you have an instant gift.

 

ChatterboxBeach offers a variety of hand-knit and fabric bottle covers perfect for holiday gift-giving, décor and celebrations. We will be featuring Christmas in July products for the rest of the month. To see more holiday gifts available from ChatterboxBeach, visit
