When The Nester first posted this idea of having every one do a post about what they have in their home that is imperfectly beautiful there were so many imperfect things I could have posted about. Not so sure about the beautiful part, though. However, I did come up with a couple of ideas I wanted to do...you can read about those here.
I wanted to show you the finished products. What started out as this: Has turned out as this: I love it. I will eventually do another one with the robin's egg picture in it, but for now I love this one.
And I finally finished this project:
But...I really think I'll explain that one in more detail in another post. I will leave you with this, just to whet your appetite:
I know, I'm such a tease. But I realized I had a lot more to say about it than I really wanted to write here. I'll tell you what, since I didn't give you that, I'll give you something you haven't seen yet.
I had to go back to the area where Hobby Lobby is on Tuesday, so to kill some time before I ate lunch with my sweetheart I spent an hour or so roaming around. I found a frame on sale and bought some felt to go in it. Why? Well, ever since this post from Kimba, I have wanted to do something with my sand dollars I found on the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama a few years ago. They've been languishing in my dresser for three years, poor things. So, I finally decided to do something about it.
I took the glass out of the frame, put the black felt in the back, and very gently hot glued three of my sand dollars to the felt. I thought three would be nice since there are three in our family. How do you like it?
I really like how the white sand dollars stand out against the black felt. I also love how there are two bigger ones and one smaller one, just like my Sweet Husband, me, and Kiddo. Here's a closeup of the three of them together:
I love sand dollars. They are so pretty. I don't even know what they are. Shells? Skeletons? Does anyone know? I'm sure if I really wanted to know I could Google it but if I find out they are actually crab throw-up I probably wouldn't think they are as pretty. Maybe I don't want you to tell me. How could I see this as anything but beautiful?
So that's what I've been up to the past few days. Instead of blogging, it would seem. Sorry it's been a bit since I've posted anything, and I even skipped my beloved "My Husband Rocks!" post. He came home dejected thinking he had done something wrong. Bless his heart.
I'll fill you in on that "tease" in a few days. It turned out so much better than I expected. I'm excited to show you!
