And happy Memorial Day to my American friends!
It’s been a quiet, rainy weekend here. Perfect excuse to hide away in the craft room, and whip up some new silly prims… like these little firecracker bundles.
Just a fun bowl filler for the summer months. Great individually or stacked up all together. These little guys have been hand-painted and antiqued, and even slightly charred. I made my own grungy tags, and then tied up each bundle with a big shabby bow. Huge thank you to my sweet bloggy friend, Lynn at From My Bungalow, for the adorable alphabet stamp set I used on the tags.
Recently I got my hands on a few itty bitty wooden frames for some of my wee itty bitty stitchery. This Old Glory print, hand-stitched in my own messy handwriting onto tea-stained cotton canvas, seemed particularly fitting for this day. I used black floss to match the black finish of the frame. And on the background, I created a watercolor flag using Distress inks and paint.
These new goodies have been added to my Summer Shop, in case you are interested. You can find them, along with all the rest of my summer prims, here.
Thanks so much for stopping by! And to our country’s service men and women, our veterans, and all their families, thank you, for your dedication, service, and sacrifice!
