Yep, I have been busy crafting again. I finished up two projects on Saturday and was able to finish my dining room mantel! Huzzah!
The first project was dressing up an antique bride's basket from my collection. I filled it with some red garland, and silver and red pics. A pair of sweet glittery pink birds sit in the midst of the nest, with banners proclaiming 'love nest'. I thought it was perfect for Valentines.
I have had these mercury glass finials for years, but have never been able to find a spot for them. I thought with some sweet graphics from the source of all sources, Graphics Fairy, they would make the perfect centerpiece for my mantel. I adore the little Valentine Clowns, and they were simple to decoupage into place.
I bought this sweet shadow box/rolling ball game at Treasures last week from Two Pits of a Pear. I love their stuff, and did you notice that he used the same little Valentine clown that I included on my Mercury glass? I would like to think that means I have good taste, because I know that Brandon certainly does!
Thanks for stopping by.
