Who knew one could feel such jubilation?? Such praise to God for His grace and glory! Kerry and I celebrated most of the day.
How? By driving 9 miles to a neighboring village and having lunch at a BBQ place we had seen. And then I spent 2 hours wondering through the antique stores this little place is known for. More about all that later.
I came home inspired to play. I'd seen this done in one of the cute little shops.
Take old lace that you have and wind it up loosely, then pinch one end and tie a ribbon around it real tight. Fluff open the other end and it sort of looks like a flower! I did it with some old doilies first:
used 2 doilies for each little flower
And I took apart some silk flowers to add to the mix
Thinner lace looks a little like rose buds
And I made a rose from silk - you can buy it by the yard from Creative Impressions
and then I stuck it all in a cut glass bowl I picked up at the thrift store ($.99)
It's great to go antiquing if you want to get inspired! And what a great way to store my unused lace. Now, if I look at it every day, how long until I decide to use it? One must live in creative surroundings in order to live a creative life!!!
