This year, I decorated our dining room chandelier with flocked, glass bird ornaments, dried and glittered babies breath, glittered birds and paper flowers.

Table Trends on Once Wed
Emily over at Once Wed was kind enough to invite me to be a part of her Table Trends project. I loved every second of the process and had a great time making all the elements for my table, and putting it all together. Here are a few shots of the end results. You can visit Once Wed to see more images of my table and other Table Trend creations as well.

This weekend I participated in the "Tacoma is for Lovers" art and craft sale at King's Books. There were some fabulous folks in attendance and lots of great vendors too. I do hope they decide to make it an annual event.

Here's a new batch of bouttonieres almost ready to post on Etsy. Summer's almost over, so I thought I'd transition into a subtle fall palette.

I made the scalloped "valance" using flocked paper from The Paper Zone. The chenille dot trim on top was a find from a trip to Spain, many years ago. The lanterns are made from vintage wallpaper and scrapbooking papers.
I used the same flocked paper to trim the front door. I cut the paper to size, then cut a small circle where the peep hole is. I glued a small crocheted circle around the hole, to finish it off.

How To Gift Wrap a Tree
Craig celebrated his birthday this weekend. This year, I decided to give him a tree. I wanted him to pick it out, so I made a tiny gift certificate and incorporated it into a collage encased in a box.

A Flea Market Find
I scored oodles of vintage flower stamens today at the Sand Point Flea Market. I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I was to find these beauties.

A roll of paper becomes a pile of petals, then a handful of flowers. The blooms are dipped in wax and wait to be assembled into a corsage, bouttoniere or bouquet.
