Finding a place for everything ...

It's good to organize, tidy up, or otherwise "find a place for everything".  We all do it ... occasionally.  And whenever I do I am always pleasantly surprised by what I find.  Today's treasure was a sheet of printed daisies.  Bright cheerful colors in a variety of colors - they have me thinking of warmer weather as the snow blows outside.  Inspiration is found in many places.

A mix of printed papers in shades of green and tangerine made a pleasing combination.  I used First Edition along with Paisley Petals and our new Everyday Enchantment found in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

A shabby bow is a must for anything I create.  This one is made of hand dyed seam binding in a light shade of blue ... embellished with matching deep green decorative pins.

A bright tangerine button, a treasured daisy, and happy words of greeting are layered simply and become the center of attention.

Once again, I am grateful for your time and do hope you enjoyed your visit!
