Last year I made this LOVELY wreath of two kinds of eucalyptus that look a bit like olive leaves.They always tend to loose color after a while,So it was in desperate need of something new.Because of his large size you need a considerable amount of greenery that is not exactly cheap and going towards VALENTINES DAY it’s only getting worse with the prices of flowers!!But I was lucky, I found some cheap bunches of Pistache leaves that also have an’ olive look’.Kept the base of the eucalyptus and just added the new branches.So it’s again a LOVELY wreath!
From some tiny twigs I made some LOVELY HEARTS.I’m also (trying) to decorate some HEARTS from old newspaper,stamps and other LOVELY stuff.
Every Wednesday I help an very nice old lady(almost 90)in her house(still living on her own).She can tell some very LOVELY stories about bygone days.She and her parents used to have an mercerieshop ,sold fabrics, buttons ,ribbons lace and all the stuff we now collect!Last week she showed me some old letters and postcards(no LOVELETTERS!).Because she knew I LOVE old things ,she gave me some of the old postcards,In return I scanned and transferred this LOVELY old card with beautiful girl on fabric and made her this lavender bag.
Thanks for reading this hopefully LOVELY post and LOVE to see you again!
