I have my own little corner of the world where I can forget that we have been smothered in snow for the past 3 months. Nothing blooming outside, but I am surrounded by color and greenery inside, courtesy of Michael's. It seems I can't go in that store without becoming mesmerized by the rows of silk flowers. My imagination starts to churn out ideas for bouquets and arrangements and cute little crafts. And I am not a craft person by any means. This is just a little corner in my family room where I allow myself to make a mess.
And this is what it looks like outside my window. I haven't seen grass, green or brown, since December. Every time it starts to thaw, we have another snowfall.
But inside the sun is shining on the flowers as I capture them in little floral vignettes of petals and stems and reindeer moss. I lay a carpet of Spanish moss around it all and cover it with a glass dome.
This is the cloche I made for The Husband's office. He wanted something for the credenza in his conference room. So I made something that would look cheery year round. Now I am looking for a runner to go underneath it. Maybe something in a yellow/gold.
This is a little basket that I made with some of my leftover white flowers, tied with a little piece of burlap. I love it.
So this is just a short post about what I have been doing creatively. I've also been reading a lot. Just finished a fantastic book of short stories and am making my way through another. I think I got my reading groove back!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone has a nice weekend!
