This a quick little project that I just finished. I got him at Michael's, he's all wood with the little feet in metal. I covered him with designer paper and blinged him up a bit. I placed him at eye level in front of my desk, I'm so enjoying just looking at him.

Ok so everyone on You Tube is making these flowers and I wanted to try some. I placed an order or should I say another order at Frog Feathers, she has the most beautiful shabby flowers. The flower centers are vintage earrings and some bling that I picked up on a recent sale at Forever 21. You know I'm going to be making more, they're so addictive. Make sure to check out Vicki's channel, she is amazing and she has a great tutorial on making these, love her.
I added some silver micro beads to the edge of these mulberry leaves, so beautiful.

I've been wanting to scrap these thirty year old pictures of my dad and me for a while now. My dad was a simple, kind and very funny man. An Old Spice, white t-shirt and khaki kind of guy that loved the outdoors, animals and of course his four daughters and my mom. He was older than my mom and almost doubled her age, so I guess you could say he had five daughters, lol.
I got married on a beautiful spring day in a garden, inside an iron patina green gazebo by a lake, swans and all. I got married in a garden just because I knew that my dad would be more comfortable outside, surrounded by nature, than in the inside of a formal church.
It was a beautiful non-traditional family only event. My sweet mom made my one of a kind wedding gown. Can you believe that she had never sewn a wedding dress before. I had Ostrich and Lady ferns, my favorite, everywhere. The crystal beaded bridal head piece and the all orchid bridal bouquet were made by me. The Asparagus ferns and other greenery in the bridal bouquet were all from our nursery.
He looked so handsome in his tux and I remember feeling so proud and blessed that he was my dad.

I can't really say I have a favorite. I'm just in love with all of them. Which one is YOUR favorite piece? I'm going to be using these for an up coming tea party that I'll be having here on my blog. I'm still on the look out for a few more things. I'll keep you posted, it's going to be so much fun.

I recently participated in a private one on one swap with the super talented Ms. Muriel. These are the beautiful and shabby one of a kind flowers that she made just for me. I still can't stop looking at them, I love them all. Take a peek at her You Tube channel, HERE, she's the flower queen.
This is a 6 feet wall that lines one side of my little quaint scrap nook area, heaven. I found these iron pieces at Pier One and I'm still not sure what they're meant to be used for. But, I use them to display my ATCs. My laundry room is right behind the louver doors so I get to see them everyday. I think of them as a splash of art and I love that.
