Besides junking, sipping wine, sitting by a bonfire, playing with piglets, and eating too much like I was a piglet myself (thanks for the great food, Tracy!!), we did some crafting on Labor Day weekend when i was with my buddies at the hunting cabin.
Tami brought enough supplies to top off the entire British monarchy.
And we loved every bit and bauble she brought.
Here is a Gatsby-esque one that she gifted to Karen.
And here is a heart shaped, nature inspired, Fairy Crown that I made for Sugarwings.
She placed it on our lamp when she took it off, I kind of like it there.
This is the woodland example that Tami brought.
Angie is modelling the Ice Queen crown.
I made one similar to it.
I'm also creating a Raven crown, from a beaded flapper dress I found at a flea market. It is still in progress, I'm thinking it will require some black feathers and maybe even a feathery bird. I'll be wearing it with my raven dress to a fairyland ball that my sis, Terry, is throwing next summer. It is never too early to plan ahead, is it? This will be a big occasion, so Guncle Randy and I both worked on our headpieces.
Here is the beginning of the base of his. He ringed it with more stones, and we aged it with two colors of Rub-n-buff when we got home.
He will also add vines and sprigs to fairy it up.
They all looked great together.
Thanks for the beautiful project, Tami!
(I only wish we'd thought of posing some of these onto the mounted deer and turkeys around the house!)
I will be away from my desk, enjoying Sister Time in Florida til the 22nd. All orders from the Boutique will ship on the 24th. Thanks!
