Christmas Spirit

Hello Everyone!! I hope you are all having a fantabulous day!.  Today I have been working on some gift items and a few other surprises.  My schedule has been pretty demanding and its only going to get more demanding as the holidays approach.   I can handle it though! Last week the Sugar Plum festival was on at the Orange County Fair Grounds.  I took my mom.  We had a great time browsing through all kinds of fun handmade items.  I really love that every time I go I find hidden treasures.  This past week was no different.  While browsing each individual booth I found someone selling all these amazing Boyds  bears. Then My excitement grew when I found a Boyds farm wagon.  From then on I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I am always looking for things that would make lovely gifts.  I ended up buying 3 bears. Today I created gift items with 2 of the bears.  These are my creations.

 

A few weeks back I did a blog post on these great finds I found to create flower arrangements in.  Today I was able to complete a few.   The wheel barrel above with the cute bear holding the apple was one.  I had found this beautiful metal vintage looking basket. I created this floral arrangement using Vintage blush roses and vintage style daisies.  I used Moss to hide the ugly foam.  How do y’all think it turned out?

I also made this pretty arrangement.

Now I just need to find flowers for this birdcage that I found.  I am super excited to do this one.

I absolutely love Milkglass vases.  I have two more that I was able to score at an Antique store my last visit to Texas.  I am waiting on flowers to arrive for them.  This is one I was able to complete a week ago.

I really appreciate you all visiting.  You all make my day!!!.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Until next time.

Today I was super productive =)

I have made some unique items to share today.  Like this one with succulents.  You will have to tell me what you think.  Since I normally work with flowers.  This was a different idea for me.   What do y’all think?

Classic beauty

Today I started with a bunch of beautiful flowers and greenery.   I wanted to make something less holiday and more classic.

I started with this container that I had bought a few weeks back.  I tend to hold things until I find just the right things to put into them.  When I received these pretty champagne roses I knew I wanted to use this container =) As well as a gold vase that I just loved. ( I forgot to take a pic of it beforehand =).

I started arranging my flowers and this is the creations I came up with.

I still had some flowers left  and decided I wanted to do a wall hanging.   Sticking with my theme I was able to come up with a very timeless piece.

I decided to start with the metal envelopes.  They seems to be the perfect fit for the flowers I was wanting to use.  In the end I think they were perfect.  I am in love with these creations.

Inspiration for Fall

 

Today I was out shopping at one of my favorite craft stores.  They were already for fall and were in the process of putting out Christmas.  All I could think is OMG Christmas alreadyyyyyyyyyy.. ..It seemed so early  but then I was distracted by all these pretty things I can put flowers into.  They were 50% off too!!!! SCORE!   I just love them.  So I am thinking these lovely things will inspire some really pretty fall floral arrangements.   The small white drawer inspired me to make this…..

D

 

I love the cottage farmhouse vibe these give off.  Its one my favorite styles.

I have actually been inspired a lot this week.  I have been working hard on new pretty things like these…..

 

 

Earlier in the week I was inspired to make these…

 

 

I hope you all enjoyed my latest creations.  Have a fabulous week.  Once I decide what I am putting into all those awesome containers I will let you all know!!!
