Summer Wedding

Is this a sweet little old doll or what? Cloth body and she has a crier inside that still works.. I added her to the shOP, you could use her head for something or put a pretty dress on this one.
I love these old Tattered lampshades ... I want to make something pretty with these?? Maybe attach some old fabric to them ? Something??? What do you think?

I picked up these two old flour sifters at a yard sale for 50 cents and piece and knew right away what I wanted to do with them ..I picked up lavender and planted them inside..Any cute little plants will do in these..I also have a ton of vintage crinoline trim if anyone would like some I added it to the SHop.


I love to make bouquets outside on my little picnic table. These just from a day ago from my neighbor again ..I love having fresh flowers all the time with a neighbor like her with the yard she has and I the yard I am trying to achieve.



I love using old milkglass vases and old blue canning jars ..I have plenty handy ,I really believe everyone should have fresh flowers inside their home at all times... I do.!





And more flowers.... here is the wedding bouquet I made Saturday for my now Brother's Wife. I think it turned out so lovely! That's what 10+ years as a florist will get you!Made right in my kitchen for 1/4 of the price!











What a busy crazy week ! Now I feel like I can relax a little ,wrap up last minute pricing for the barn sale in Enumclaw Wa. If anyone lives in the area and would like directions please just ask! I would love to meet you !!!!!!!!!!!A short post but wanted to say Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!
