Hello – hope you all had a relaxing Labor Day. We spent part of it with musician friends and had a great time. School started in our neck of the woods today and Scout couldn’t be happier. Two school buses to bark at! When the first bus stopped and she started barking, we all shouted “Hurray! The noisy bus is here!” And by all, I mean Riley, Scout, me and Don. I know…we’re nuts.
I’ve been playing around with an idea – something I’ve wanted to try for a while. You know I consider myself crafty in some areas but not so much in others. Yet I am inspired daily by all the wonderful creations I see out here in blogland. So this idea was percolating and then I received Lori’s present.
Then I added some favorite things:
The French text on the left, the french soap label and the tag came from my friend Mary. The text looks like it is from an old prayer book and it fit perfectly in the indentation on the lid. I used one of my French stamps for the tag. I threaded some flowers through the opening on the hinge and tied them in a little bouquet with some vintage seam binding. I also added some flowers to the text.
A little crown that Meri sent me was painted, slightly shabbied and glued on what was the top of the box.
I have her on my bookcase in the studio. I have all sorts of ideas floating around in my head for other little boxes. I shall call them ‘boites’ – how about “Les Boites des Vignettes?” Yes, that is what I shall call them. Such fun!
