I'll start off by saying, the pictures do not really show how pretty this breadbox really is (was) I really fell in Love with this!
It was a custom order from my Etsy Shop, a customer contacted me after seeing another one I did, and wanted me to make one for her. I just happened to have the box below, and it was just what she was looking for. She sent me the Graphics she wanted (from The Graphic Fairy) I worked with her on the placement, and together we came up with this. The front graphic was not the easiest to get positioned just right,
I used the "Frezer paper" method to apply the transfer, a little tricky with the front graphic, as I had to stretch it and print it on 2 sheets of paper and peice it together. I lost count on how many times I had to repaint the front of this box! But in the end, I think we were both really pleased.
"this box is absolutely beautiful! Thanks so much for such a well done piece. it is exactly what I asked for or prettier! you seem like a very nice person with a lot of artistic talent. also, quick shipping. Thanks so much for such a great experience : )"
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
I've been admiring all the hydrangea wreaths on
Pinterest, and have been wanting to make one. Waiting to dry the few
blossoms from my plants, but they didn't dry very well... I tried two
different techniques, and failed at both... I put some in water and
waited...they kept their color, but shriveled up, I cut some and just
left them dry, they didn't shrivel but lost all their color. I may
try to paint those, I'll post if I do.
I looked at buying silk hydrangea stems, but they are pretty
pricey...Then I scored these for FREE! My niece used these for her
Wedding, 3 stems on each table, and didn't want to keep them, did I
want them? You bet I did!
I gave this one to my Daughter-in-Law, and I still need to make one for myself, and I'm going to make one for my neice (since she gave me all these Beautiful Flowers!)
This was seriously the easiest wreath I've ever made! I didn't even need to use any wire!
I just cut the stems about 6" long, and stuck them thru a grapevine wreath, I squeezed them in pretty tight, I wanted a really full wreath.
After I had all the blossoms in, I hot glued them in place and cut off the stem as short as possible so it would lay flat.
I added a Burlap Bow above the wreath to use a "hanger"
I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet. I'm clinging to the Warmth and Beauty of Summer, so I thought I would share with you some of my favorite Spring and Summer Photos, from this summer and summers past.
Welcome to my Flower Gardens, all the flowers are from my yard and I love each and every one!
This is a very Photo heavy Post, so enjoy the view, and I won't bore you with the details!
Thanks for visiting, Hope you enjoyed my Summer View
