I just had to show you the flower rosette I made for each of the ladies in the swap--what fun that was but it was definitely some work and sewing involved. I most likely took it the hard way but I do love the result.
Hope everyone's weekend is going well. I'm definitely missing my hour already :) It's 4:30 Sunday afternoon and I can not believe it--ton's of stuff to do yet. It was spring clean weekend here--this big old house sure get's dusty--I now know we have WAY to many chandeliers and lights. Little one has been really sick the past week with fever, cough and such; spent time with Grammy and me for about 4 days and now Mom and I are both sick. Ahh, but its Spring here in the South! I pulled out my early Spring wreath, planted some pansy's in the window boxes, moved the Johnny Jump Ups to the ground to spread some love and now I'm here with my coffee enjoying the breeze and the 68 degree weather. DH took little one up to our pond to feed the ducks and play on the playground. Kids bounce back like that!
I joined in Heather's Petite Inspiration swap--Flea Market edition. I just love working with the small inspiration pieces and would like to share the wonderful pieces I received from my beautiful partner's, Michelle and Lorraine.
Michelle's --Beautiful box with lovely papers, tags, ribbon, and sweet tid-bits; just thinking of all the history in those vintage pieces. What a wonderful box--thank you so much Michelle!
I had to borrow Michelle's picture of the outside--mine did not come out. I took pictures during our monsoon rain for about a week.
Soft, vintage, sweet flowers, birds, and papers, and the little tiny treasures all tucked in. So lovely, thank you Lorraine!
This is what I made for these lovely ladies:
I loved making the homemade rosette out of vintage pieces and lots of different textures. The sweet bird embellished too.
Till next time,
