Recently I was visiting some of my favorite blogs and I came across a couple that just completely inspired me.
Ok, so my first bit of inspiration came from Heather. She has the most amazing collection of vintage Valentine's Day candy boxes. So, with images of vintage candy boxes dancing in my head I headed out to Hobby Lobby and picked up a wood shaped heart for $1.99 and went to work.
And here's what I came up with...my own mini version of a vintage candy box. I just added some vintage wallpaper, velvet ribbon, old millinery, cheesecloth, a rhinestone pin and a piece of torn muslin to hang it from. Kinda cute, huh.
I can't tell you had much fun this little project was....I wanna make a hundred of them....well, maybe not a hundred...but definetly more.
My second spark of inspiration came from this Heather. She makes the most amazing things...and when I saw this...I just had to try it...or something like it. So, while at Hobby Lobby, I picked up this wooden Cross and got busy. I painted it up and distressed it a bit and added my pearls.
I'm really happy with how this turned out too. It looks so handmade and with those lovely shades of cream and gray it matches my home perfectly. Love it!
Thanks so much to these inspiring women for sharing their beautiful photos and ideas with us. Now, I'm off to be inspired again.
