I am going to have a party, so I have been
cleaning...which means I keep coming across
things to distract me and make me want to
do everything else BUT clean! :)
It really isn't too hard to distract me...any
little thing will do it...an episode of "Wings"
that I have seen 30 times...a kittie's
tummy that needs a snuggle...a magazine
I have looked at before...oh, yah...
that Styrofoam circle that I forgot I had...
I had this idea a long...maybe years ago...
just never got around to it. But, this day,
it was kismet, all the elements I needed
were actually at hand! So, like the trooper
that I am, I stopped that cleaning, cold!
And got to work on my crafty idea.
I wrapped the "wreath" in tulle ( a bit of "truth
in advertising" here; the cream tulle that is pictured
was wrested from me and absconded by something
small and hairy...and ended up bitten an tattered!
So, I had to go with the pink tulle.)
Then I added jewel....
Until I finally had it!
The tulle-y wreath of jewel-y goodness!
I think Santa will enjoy this when he comes
down the chimney!!!!!
(and, yes, the buckle on the right side
is too clunky and has been removed!)
And, the kind and OH SO TALENTED
OUR SHABBY COTTAGE
has bestowed not one, but two awards on
the OC Cottage...and are we thrilled!
We sit over here sprinkling glitter while
she sews masterpieces!!!!

Her ideas are too darling are her craftsmanship
