Good Evening Blogging Friends! I certainly hope everyone is having an awesome Monday! Life is too short to allow one day go by without appreciating its beauty. It sometimes hard to recognize what a good and awesome God we have in a world that appears as if nothing good happens any more!
We have to take the time and look for the beauty in all things, and understand that God in his infinite wisdom has a plan and a reason for all things. Even the bad.
I wanted to share with you the projects I have been working on this weekend. Actually I finished the Hat Box about 12:30 AM last night.
I find that if I create a little bit of beauty , then the world is a brighter place for me. It is so healing to my soul and body to spend time in my craft room and enjoying what God has blessed me with.
Hope you enjoy!!
When I altered this band box I decided to embellish it as a Victorian Hat Box. With Roses, satin bows, lace and pearls.I think it turned out really pretty. When I was creating the alterations to this box, I thought of my sweet friend Olivia at Olivia's Romantic Home. This is the same direction she would decorate a box like this With all the pinks and lace!!
I added a couple of muted green bows and the same muted roses from the top.
I put pink pearls and a pink rose bud to the center of the little crocheted doiles.
Do you remember posting about this container as part of last weeks garage sale haul.?
I painted the outside of the container with Acrylic craft paint. The color is called Linen. I modged podged some blue gingham like scrap book paper and glued on some of my Jamaican sea shells. It matches our blue guest bathroom. I added some blue face cloths so my guest can find them easily when they visit.
Do you remember this little rust colored bath and body works bag. Well I did a little embellishing!
It now looks like this!
