My last bouquet..was Oct 25th~and some ornaments~
I could have picked roses..The Fairy:)
And some red Parklands..
Or some white miniature roses...
Some nasturtiums for certain..and pansies too..with their pretty little faces..
But the Feverfew spoke to me..as we blew leaves into huge piles..
I gather..:) I picked ap. 1/2 cup..of Feverfew..not leaves..
But..in leaf time ..I guess I blow 10% and Jacques 90%:)
The wind was blowing them into the air at one point..and quite frankly ..me at the helm of a blower often blows mid air..
it started to pour..later in the day..
so I finished some ..shh..Christmas ornaments..
I used air dried clay..so you simly roll out.. and stamp..
I use ..a kit ..very similar to these..
I have had mine for a couple of years now..and this is not where I bought them..but I wanted to give you an idea..
I used a child's rolling pin..a star cookie cutter..stamped and added either words..or our grandchildren's names..with a swarovski crystal imbedded..w/ jute cording to hang.
You can either adorn a tree..or gifts with these.
Instant gratification..and so easy!
A lot easier than yard maintenance.:)
I also finished up some of the :"She loves Christmas " ornaments..
I saw it on Pinterest and Pinned it..then..this Sept. I went looking for tiny boxes..the trees were easy..Ebay..all sizes..all kinds..
So reasonable..and free shipping..
But the boxes!???
Finally I went into a store I knew had some.. she said ..:"Nous ne vendons pas ces boîtes..Attendez..laissez-moi communiquer avec mon gérant..."(we do not sell these boxes..wait..let me call my manager..)
Bon d'accord..si vous versez une somme ..comme vous voulez..pour une bonne cause ..et voiçi ma petite boîte..pour les dons..oui je peux vous en donner quelques unes..(Ok..if you donate a sum of money..as much as you want..and here is my little box for donations..yes I can give you a few..)
So I left with un don and quelques unes..
Way too many trees for the boxes!
Anyways..I made a few special ones..and unfortunately..my sparkles do not show up here..
But they are sparkley:) And simple....and I am fond of them..
So much so..that I made one.. with:" Elle aime Noël"..on one of them.. went back to the big store..asked for her..she was on lunch..I left it w/ the dressing room attendant.
Hope she liked it.♥
Funny how my camera at ISO 800 picked up all the fuzzies..but no glitter..
There is glitter:)
My Christmas Cacti..(I have a few.. different colors..white..peach..pink..red etc..)..flower inNovember..the white one...always late October..and she loves the sunroom.
Early..like the ornaments..
Just in case you would like to start crafting for Christmas.
