a wreath for Maisie…

Image

My first grandchild was born on February 9th this year …. so I at least had begun a bright pink (yes we all knew she was a girl) wreath made from 3 $Dollerama feather boas wrapped around an old wooden wreath and secured with hot glue.

I finally finished it off with some foam letters, pink hearts and a few pink chicks, which are blindingly overtaken by the brightness of the pink feathers… the black dots are the chicks’ eyes ………. maybe I’ll try adding a contrasting colour of chicks one day….

On top of the first bookshelves, I affixed a scrappy old wood shelf, and the old window from the old house, and added some vintage bitz and pieces.  I painted the ordinary glass vases shabby white, and made modpodged a lovely full moon which is peeking behind the old window..
