Let Them Eat Cake!

Thursday, July 1, 2010

It's nice to have a few vacation days after a couple of LONG months (work wise--no headaches till Tues--well hopefully!). Today was errands in the morning, gardening after lunch (Mommy anyways) sweating in the 90 degree heat and now this is happening:

Can you see that I'm excited!! Time to myself for an hour :)

So this happened:

A sweet altered art CAKE :) I made some of those flowers that are popular--using vintage pearls and a broken earring, vintage paper flowers, vintage lace, some paper from the scrapbook industry, and that luscious silk ribbon. This would be sweet for a table at a shower. I tend to go more romantic and stray towards wedding, baby, and french inspired art. The funny thing is our house has only bits and pieces of this --we tend to be simple with lots of light colors, vintage linens, antique furniture here and there (thanks family!); thrown in with new traditional sofa and chair. Not sure where my love came from must be all those historical romance novels I admitted reading when I was younger (see Crown post). I grew up a jeans, sneakers, and sweatshirt girl and still that way (till I put that suit on for work). I pop it with vintage pins, jewelry, and funky socks :) Oh, it's nice to know others are in the same pickle with style Elyse has some gorgeous photos but I LOVE them all--my issue is that I tend to get it half done and get into something else!

Anyways, I PROMISE to get pictures of my awesome swap partners for Heather's Paris Petite Inspiration box. Till then, Kris

1 Sweet Thoughts:

  1. Love your "cake" Kris!
    I have always loved the sight of a napping child too. :)
    I get you about the jeans and sweatshirts...I've always been a jeans and tshirt kind of gal too, I guess that's why my creations are always so frilly.
    I hope you're not melting in this heat wave!
    Cerri xoxo
