Clara is a sweet older lady who is a dear to visit and always has something that I have to go home with. Last fall, Clara, who is probably in her mid 80's, decided to stop dying her hair. She thought it might be time to let it go naturally gray. So, she announced this to Heather and I, and we told her, it was an excellent idea! This hair dying, perming, coloring, foiling, frosting, etc, etc, etc, gets old! After a long winter of Clara holding up in her 2 story home, she finally opened again for business. I drove by and saw the "OPEN" sign, and nearly did a "U Turn" in the middle of the road! When I walked in to say hello, Clara, was back to being an "auburn beauty"! I guess no matter how old we get, we still want to think we look our best!
Well, back to the baskets.....
I decided to finally do something with some of that wonderful wallpaper that I've bought and Heather, my daughter from Pretty Petals, has given me over the last while. (Which by the way, Heather has new wallpaper parcels for sale in her shop!) So, little baskets, I've made. Filled to the b*r*i*m with little treasures, and supplies to create your own sweet creations.
The baskets themselves are glittered up with high-end rose quartz glitter, edged with a pink German foil border, and the handle is adorned with a vintage millinery flower and lots of ribbon and lace.
I've filled the baskets with a foot of vintage edging wallpaper, 1 pair of pearl earrings, 5 vintage rhinestone buttons, 1 vintage shell button, 2 vintage pink millinery flowers, 2 velvet white millinery flowers, 1 stem of vintage while millinery flowers, 1 pink vintage reflector, 1 blue vintage reflector, and the cutest spool of vintage white lace (4 feet). I'm hoping that is enough to inspire for a new spring project!
Wishing you all a wonderful spring! Hoping you all can fill your baskets with all the things that make your heart sing!
