Mini Crowns,,,,,and the Garden Tour this Sunday!

This morning was grey and a BIT rainy, so I worked in the studio a bit. I'm finally caught up on "Custom" orders and made a few mini-flags,,,,,and a few mini-crowns......

Old lace/wallpaper/tulle and a fun vintage leaf and a mirror embellishment

It always cracks me up when I use these old doll heads for something,,,,my Big ol' Sons think they're creepy!

Added a fun old "earclip" (aka earring if you're under 40) to this one.....

Not so sure about this last one,,,,,,I think I've got too much going on here for the size of the crown, but hey, maybe someone will like it!

I incorporated a frozen Charlotte onto this one,,,,,,,Again, I think it's a bit off scale,,,,but we live and learn, oui?

Sidebar: I have been So bad about posting local events this year! I used to have a running Calendar of Snohomish Events on my Blog Sidebar. I promise to get back to that soon! In the Meantime, please make a note that THIS Sunday, July 31st, is the Snohomish Garden Tour. I runs from Noon -5:00pm. You can by Tickets from us at Joyworks, Annie's on 1st, Mc Daniels, Curly Willow and Mc Aullife's Nursery, to name just a few. 

This is always a fun event, and given our Rain allotment this year, I'm sure a challenge to the Gardeners!
I have a couple of friends on the Tour this year, including Denise Cosgrove, who has a garden to DIE for!
If you are local and have a chance, you'll love visiting these gardens! If my "knee" is up to it, I may get to some of the Venues on Sat nite at the preview and will gladly share praise and a few photos!

Snohomish has the Oldest Garden Club on the West Coast. There are so many Master Gardener's in this town that offer their talents, expertise and submissions, we are truly blessed!

Enjoy your week, stay cool if you are HOT, stay optimistic (us Locals) if it is rainy!

Hugs, Love and a "Flowery" bus on the Cheek!
