Tiny Shabby Chic Altered Boxes

A few craft friends visited for a summer afternoon of crafting fun and a picnic in my yard. I wanted to give them a little something to take home with them, so I created these quick and easy tiny altered boxes by dry brushing a little gesso and adding an assortment of bling and vintage trinkets. These tiny boxes are great for holding vintage buttons and bits and bobs. By the looks of the photos displaying our lunch, I could use a little lesson on tablescapping...plain old card tables set up in front of the garage and next to the grill...how charming. It's funny how I love creating but have no interest in party decor...sorry Somerset's Mingle Magazine.  ;-)

French Flea Market Lace

I purchased several new pairs of pants that my mom hemmed for me. This is the thank you card I made for her. The blue lace I found at a brocante in Paris this past June.

Autumn Wall Decor

Found an old galvanized chicken feeder at an antique show and thought it would be nice to change out the container according to the season. I went to my local craft store and selected several autumn floral pieces, along with a really cool black crow,  and tried my hand at creating an autumn wall decor piece.
