Happy Birthday, Vino Oak Tray!

VOT2 Small
The Vino Oak Tray has become more popular with each passing month. We introduced this tray August 2013, and it has been a #1 seller. Reclaimed wine staves make up the frame, and corners are reinforced with pieces of the barrel bands themselves.

July’s Giveaway Winner

During the month of July, we entered every store that placed an order that month, into a drawing for a free Vino Oak Tray.  And the winner of the drawing was – NEST of Grand Traverse, Michigan.  A big thank you to all of you and the orders you placed this last month.  It was most fun to put all of the store names in a bowl and draw.

Mirror Frame with Fleur De Lis Stenciling.
Today I received my new stencils in the mail. I now have four different fleur de lis stencils that I’ll be making available. My large trays & mirror frames will be my first projects. I’m thinking that “the sky is the limit” when it comes to possibilities.

Spring is in the air. I am aware that it still remains quite cold at times, depending on your location, still spring is in the air.
I enjoyed snapping some pictures this afternoon and thought I’d share them with you.
