Here are the new letter blocks with two photo blocks included. I made these for my girls as decoration for their play area in the living room.

The Chica Boutique Letter Block

I have designed a new letter block that is perfect for any decor. I put on my goggles and tool belt and used the chop saw to create these blocks. Each has been sanded, painted and sealed. These blocks are 1 1/2 inches thick so they stand nicely. They range between 3.5 to 5.5 inches tall. I am working on some right now that have a photo block included, which I will post when it is done.

Email me your requests...I love doing custom work.

An Early Invitation to Spring

I loved the way the sweet, tangy orange color popped in this board. The zebra added just enough spice. This is one I just may have to recreate for myself. ;) It makes me smile. Hope you enjoy it Jody!

Something New at The Chica Boutique

Vintage-Inspired Letter Blocks

I designed these blocks for Violet, who turned 2 years old. She is such a sweetie and I know she will enjoy seeing these fun, boutique letter blocks in her room! This just might be the perfect baby shower gift...a unique centerpiece...a wedding gift...teacher gifts, holiday themed, you name it! Each block measures 2.5 inches, so it is sure to make a statement. I have different fonts available and can custom design to match any decor.

**These are for decoration only. They are not intended for child play.**
