REMEMBER...

LIFE IS A GARDEN; ENJOY THE STROLL.

CUPID WAS HERE.

In my last post, I shared with you some sweet, handmade musings inspired by Cupid.  Well, he continues to hang around aiming his crafty bow right at my heart.  I don't mind at all.  Draw it in my direction all you want, little guy!

The fabric, trim and wire fixation kept me amused for one afternoon, but another afternoon followed....... with more fixations.  I've been busy.

 Full disclosure - this vignette was set up in my guest room, as it's the only room in my house that gets bathed in the "flat" natural light that I prefer for photographing things.  The common rooms (where I would actually intend to display these adornments)really stink with regard to suitable lighting.

I had made a bunch of wire ornaments to sell at my local garden center during the Christmas holiday.  I updated the few I kept for myself by simply swapping out the original jute twine and green ribbon for pink ribbon.  And, the cache of scrap ribbon leftover from the hearts I made is proof that you can pretty much turn anything into decor!

Oh, those popularly available reproduction game tiles are so overrated.  Hand stamping real tiles is so much more fun ;D

Yes, I put on this siren hued, goopy lipstick and kissed the mirror just for you.

Printing vintage graphics...simple, fun and super thrifty.

The piece pictured below was a fun little project, and didn't take much time at all to make.  I bet you could come up with your own version of it.  Go ahead, give it a try.

And, this little mushroom I made last year fits right in with all the other sweet companions.

Well, this post wraps up my collection of Cupid inspired creations.  And, full disclosure - this is what my dining table has looked like for the past few weeks.  Really.

  2. When I create, I'm happy to have a square foot of space to assemble my goodies. Any smaller than that, and it's time to put everything away and start over! lol
