Happy Labor Day my friends! I plan to do NO laboring today. A few errands, a bit of sewing, and time spent with family is on my "to do" list. The crisp Autumn temps have arrived with a high of only 63 degrees today. It's my favorite season ... looking forward to the beautiful colors.
Seeing so many wonderful blooms created with everything from silk to printed cottons, I've wanted to try a rolled flower for a long time. Mine is an off-white muslin...a length of left over drapery lining. Next time I'll rip it rather than cut it ... hoping for something shabbier. The leaves are velvet and there is a bit of crocheted doily tucked in for good measure. I dyed the seam binding a light shade of blue and created some decorative pins by adding turquoise beads and pearls. My greeting is stamped in Soft Suede ink. The striped paper is from the scrap drawer but the damask print is new in the Beau Chateau collection (every sheet in this package is gorgeous). The lace and button is from Shirley who collects and sends me "this and that" ... thank you!
The inspiration for this post comes from Mona and the Design Team over at CR84FN. The color collage is nothing short of fabulous ... love the quote. Thanks ladies for providing such amazing samples and creative ideas!
I appreciate you taking the time to stop by ... you always make my day brighter!
