Pretty Farmhouse Decor

I love that you can make walls really come alive with decorative pieces like this.  They are pretty and unique and can add lots of drama and style to your walls.

I was shopping around my favorite craft store last week and I came across some cotton stems and this cool farmhouse sign.  The only thing I really needed was a ribbon.  Off I went looking and I found it.  A black and tan check ribbon.  It was perfect.   What do y’all think?

I  have this newfound love for lambsear.  It’s so pretty and soft.  It makes really beautiful wreaths.  Below I took a primitive embroidery hoop and wove lambs ear around it and attached it with floral wire.  I then added some cotton and used my pretty ribbon. I totally loved how it turned out. I added some navy berries that I thought were the perfect touch.

I wanted to do a tobacco basket wall in my house.  So on one of my outings I found these great tobacco baskets for a good price.  I created my wall which I LOVE but I bought a couple of baskets to many.  I decided to make this pretty wall decoration out of them.  They make beautiful farmhouse decor.  They are also a great way to make your walls come alive.  I handmade the mini wreath and attached it to the center.

I have definitely been on a farmhouse making spree this week.  I am very happy with my creations though and I do believe they make lovely additions to my Etsy shop.

Here are a few more farmhouse pieces.

 

I hope y’all enjoyed this weeks makes.  I really enjoyed making them.  I still have time….. I may just have to make a few more things!!! =)

Have a great week everyone.

Until next time….

Shabby Chic, Victorian, and Vintage inspired

a vintage inspired

If I ever decided to change my decor (coastal) I would probably choose a Rustic Shabby Chic style with a bit of vintage charm.  I am drawn to these styles.  Today I am sharing some things I made this week that are inspired by Vintage Shabby Chic style as well as Victorian styles.  I love making wreaths from usual things.  Stepping away from the normal grapevine wreath to create something different and beautifully original.

I love doing bird-cages.  They are so pretty and can be used in home decor, wedding decor, and shower decorations.

I am in love with these pretty bird-cages.   Charming rustic, vintage inspired, Victorian, and Shabby Chic decor.

I also made a few Farmhouse classic.  I discovered lambsear.  I absolutely love this as a greenery and filler.  It’s so pretty.  I used it in the swag below.

That is it for me this week so far. I hope you all enjoyed my projects.  Have a fabulous week.

Happy Mother’s day everyone.

So these little critters and the sign below inspired me to make something a bit different then my normal designs.  Aren’t they fun?

a bee sign

Those cute little metal bee’s and that fun little sign had sunflowers written all over it.  So I played around with it until I had it arranged just right.  This wreath screams summer! It is so fun and bright!  Makes me happy just looking at it.  I sure hope you all like it.

It also inspired me to create a new header for my shop and blog.

Yellow and Summer just seems to go together.   I would love to hear what inspired all you this week.  =)

Until next time have a fabulous week!

The Welcoming Wreaths

I don’t know about y’all but I am super picky when it comes to flowers.  I am especially drawn to flowers that have a real feel or look to them.   That is how I feel about these orchids.  They are so pretty!   I showed you guy’s some a few weeks back with my seashell and orchid wreath.  (still my favorite)  Today I decided to use them in a different way.  I had this pretty glass terrarium ornament and I have been holding it waiting on the perfect flowers to pair with it.   I am happy to report that I think I found the right flowers.  A happy mix of orchids, succulents, and that big pinkish flowers is an Anemone.  I love the unique feel of this wreath.

This wreath is so soft and flirty..   I want to call this wreath,  The many shades of purple. It is so pretty and feminine.    I absolutely love all the shades of purple in this.  It really does make a stunning wreath!

 

Yes I know!!!!! I love farmhouse and Shabby chic styles.  I do not think I am the only ones though.

I was asked to make a gift for a first communion.  I created a shadow box memory frame.   This is how it turned out.  I think it’s quite pretty,  What a challenge this piece was for me.  I was excited to tackle it though.

My customer order for 6 centerpieces also went out this week.    Overall it’s definitely been a busy few weeks for me.  I had fun doing them.

I would love to hear about what you are working.  Feel free to drop a link to your projects and share them.  I love seeing all the pretty creative projects.

Until next time!!

Farmhouse and Something different

This week I finally put to good use the Rustic metal tin I found at that craft fair months ago.  When I saw it I knew I wanted to use Sunflowers.  I absolutely love blues with the brightness of the sunflowers.  They make a stunning combination.  What do y’all think?

This week has been busy with special custom orders.  I made 6 arrangements for a custom order.  They turned out beautifully.  Now I just need some good packing materials and I can get my order completed.

 

I was also asked to make a shadow box frame for a y young child’s first communion.  I am excited to it.   I will post some pics of that once it’s completed.  So far I have the shadow box frame and a cross picked out that I plan to customize.

As you all know I have a love for farmhouse decor.  It’s so pretty.  This week I made a few arrangements in this category to add to shop.

I found these swags and its been years since I made a swag. I used to use dried flowers until I got the worst hay fever you could imagine from them.  lol Needless to say I will stick to pretty silk flowers.  I made 3.  I hope y’all love them.
