Happy Friday everyone!
Today, my inspiration comes from that oh so creative Rosemary, who blogs at Villabarnes.
I marvel at her talents.
I started to create a Patriotic Vignette and needed a flower pot for the occasion…
…..I then thought of what Rosemary did in a past project.
Here is the result of her inspiration.
And here is Rosemary’s beautiful creation:
Rosemary used this wonderful script tissue to cover this box..
I gathered my Mod Podge and some “patriotic” napkins that I had…
…..and mod podged away…
I felt like the “patriotic” flower pot was a perfect compliment to my folk art Uncle Sam Bunny.
I used to go to Country Living Craft Fairs long ago…loved collecting original folk art.
Most of them are signed by the artist.
Such as this great “Lady Liberty” birdhouse
Washington, D.C. is one of my very favorite places to visit…
A very good friend of ours went to the White House to receive a prestigious award…
…..from William Bennett…It was a Rose Garden ceremony….
……….I was so envious that our dear friends got to actually go to the White House Rose Garden.
So, to console my envy…they brought me back something that was given to them…
…..a box of M&M’s that were served on Air Force One…yay!!..
I added my “Lady Liberty” postcard to the vignette.
I placed a candle in the hurricane and embellished it with ribbon.
Added a row of, believe it or not, napkin rings to the bottom of the hurricane….
…..and topped with ribbon.
You may have already realized that this wonderful chalkboard print came from Dear Lillie.
I added this banner to the baskets on the bottom shelf.
Hope you enjoyed today’s Friday series…
We will be having a Anniversary Celebration weekend…
…..celebrating our 43rd…(we got married when we were 2) 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
