A Fun Giveaway & A Little Tatertots & Jello L♥ve

Hello guys and a big ole warm welcome Tatertots & Jello fans!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
Since most of you are new to my blog and to Crimson Clover, here's a brief summary...


My name is Tia and I'm a stay at home mom of 5 amazing kids. I have been making jewelry with my mom since I was 5 years old. But Crimson Clover came at a time in my life when I needed it the most. My son had just been diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes and this creative outlet was something I needed to get me through the day. I have since been blessed with a booming business, a wonderful customer base and followers and am able to donate a large portion of proceeds to the JDRF in hopes to find a cure for Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes.

I also share this blog Two Junk Chix with my sister in law, Andrea. We have had so much fun with it, too!!

Thanks to the lovely and talented Jen at Tatertots & Jello who has become a dear friend and so much fun to collaborate with, I am so excited to offer this one of a kind necklace to one lucky reader!

It is a dainty oblong soldered charm of vintage ledger paper with a pink and green vintage metal flower. It has an aged key and lock charm on an aged small ball chain.

Galvanized Planter Redo

If it's silver and galvanized, chances are, I'm gonna buy it. Here is my favorite planter from Anthropologie I got after having my 5th child. I love the metal #7 tag because it represents our family. It has found its home in my kitchen window filled with hydrangeas from my yard. I can't wait for the new blooms! I had been meaning to go back to Anthropologie to get more planters until I was in TJ Maxx the other day and spotted these for only $3.99! Not exactly the same, but close enough. So of course I had to get the #5 and #7. This one holds some of my yummy vintage ledger paper from the 1800's.
As much as I hate to cover up anything galvanized, I saw something similar in a magazine and so I became inspired. I just covered this planter with a bunch of old magazine pages. With just a few folds....well more than a few....and some hot glue, I think this is the perfect container for my studio to house all of my vintage flash cards.

Glass Vase Revamp

I have always said, "Don't bring me flowers to my funeral....bring them to me now while I can enjoy them." Well, apparently that has caught on because I get the most beautiful flowers from my hubby. But what's not so pretty are the plain glass vases the flowers come in. So I decided to take this plain vase from my Mother's Day flowers and dress it up a bit. {No, these weren't my Mother's Day flowers...these were some random white roses for no occasion :)} With a bit of hot glue and a roll of jute twine, I just kept wrapping it around the vase and gluing it in place.

The top seemed like it was missing something so I added some fluffy cream crepe fringe. My dear friend, Sarah back home sent me this gorgeous Fleur de lis chandelier crystal that I thought would be the perfect thing to dress it up! Thank you, Sarah. I love it! And I love the burlap chandelier canvas you sent me, too. ♥
