The "Real" Embellishments by SLR

Happy Thursday, Everyone! I hope you're having a great day! We are getting some much needed rain; and it has been the perfect opportunity for me to get into creative mode. 'Embellishments by SLR', originated as a showcase for decorative accents and accessories that I had created. Along the way, I discovered this tiny little thing called...blogging! LOL! With that, decorating, tablescaping, and thrifting took over; and the embellishments took a back seat.  Over the past few months, I have gotten several emails regarding some of the little details, in the photos of my home. Well, this past weekend, I got back to doing something that I love...creating decorative accents for the home.


Today, I'd like to share with you some embellishments that I created to enhance your decorative accessories.  These little accents can be used on lampshades, rose bowls, votive holders, dinner napkins, decorative bath towels, wreath ribbons, window treatments, or anywhere you'd like to add a little extra flair. The most wonderful thing is that the embellishments are versatile. Since they are not permanently attached, they can be removed at any time, and reused on other items, giving you a fresh look each time!


 I have crosses... 









fleur de lis...



And crowns... 






I took some of these to a home show; and to my surprise, they sold out completely! They not only make excellent accents for your own home, but they make great gifts, as well.

I am enjoying the creative process these days; and I will be stocking new items in my Etsy shop, along the way.


Thanks so much for your visit and have a great day!!

  10. I like decorating with crosses and crowns. They're so pretty especially when embellished with something sparkly or glowing (like a candle). Your designs look very nice. That's wonderful that you're selling out so fast.

  13. Hi Shenita- My name is Stacey, I am a friend of Donna. I feel like I know you because we talk about you at work all the time! I have a very random question- have you ever used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint? It gives a French country look- I am thinking of refinishing my kitchen cabinets myself but I dont know anyone who has used it before. When I saw some of the pieces on Pintrest it reminded me of your style. My email is thatrubyfamily@gmail.com Thanks!

  22. Hi Shenita! I saw when u listed these on Etsy and they got my mind spinning! I have more if a transitional style mixed with traditional, but I think I've found several uses! Is it possible to get a matching pair? I'll convo you on Etsy. Joyfully, Nicole

  24. Shenita, all your creations are wonderful, and it's clear to see how talented you are. I love your lamp with the beaded trim. Each look is nice, but the one with the matching red cross is my favorite. I'm sure you'll have no problem selling them. Have a great week!
