New Projects

I love this project! 
I had my friends Patti and Sharon over a couple of
weeks ago because we decided to make 
time whenever we could to get some fun projects created. 
It just gives you a little kick in the butt to get 
something you have wanted to do done!

I saw this first in the Pottery Barn catalog. 
It looked a little different than this but I really liked it. 
It never occurred to me that I could make it 
until I saw someone on another blog had made one. 

I knew the girls would love it as much as I did and boy was 
I right! We had so much fun making them and they 
all turned out completely different. 
Of course I did not have my camera that day I have misplaced 
it for more than a month! I just found it and am thrilled to 
show you this. It is easy to make and I will be making more!

I also embellished this cute little clock. 
I collect clocks and I can not seem to resist them when I 
come upon them either on e-bay or at 
a Flea. The one in the back I just got at Remnants of the past!

This little clock was not all that exciting until I added these 
favorite, tiny, vintage flowers. 
The leaves are from an old project that I ripped apart and the 
little bauble on top was from a stem of Christmas berries. 
I was so happy with the way it came out I may 
make more for Glitterfest!

Then lastly I wanted to use this great glass vessel that I found at 
Home Goods. I am not used to having a tropical garden and 
we don't have much out there to go and pick to bring 
inside. When I was living in my little cottage flowers were 
Plentiful and I had fresh ones to choose from each and every day!
So I decided to use some succulents, Sea Shells and a cute
little fish to create a scene. 
What do you think?

I just did the flowers for a friends daughters wedding and will be sharing pictures in the future. The Bride wore one of my 
Organza flowers
in her hair and I was so happy with the way it turned out. 
I will be making more soon!

Sorry it has been so long since I have been here, the camera
being gone really did not help! Then the wedding, work, 
you all know because you all do it too!
Thanks for coming back to visit and for not giving up on me!

And the little clock is a pretty girl after you got your hands on her!
