A perfect pair...

My husband is a photographer and last night he had a wedding to do. I knew he would be home late so I thought hmmmm...a day of playing and creating. He works alot so when he is home I try not to whip out my supplies too much. I didn't have any idea of what I wanted to make at first but ended up making this nut cup...
After I complete something I put it up and out of the way because the kids come by to check out what I am doing and sometimes start picking at things. I proceeded to make some other things. It was about 11 pm and I was starting to clean up and found this pretty piece of wallpaper already mounted and started to fool around with it. Ended up being this...

Finally, this time I really finished cleaning up close to midnight and went to put the tag away and realized that the two made a perfect pair!
Very "Oh Naturale" wouldn't you say! I love the overall look! Reminds me of an outdoor wedding. I was trying to think if I had anyones anniversary coming up but don't so I decided to put it in my store for now...but may have to pull it out if I need a little last minute gift for someone! ;)
Also made some of these wallpaper spools with a yard of velvet ribbon wrapped around them. Almost too pretty to use! You can find them in my store.
I may not be blogging for a few days because tomorrow (I am so excited!) I am finally getting my new, much needed, slate floor installed in my kitchen and mudroom. They say two days, I say I don't think so, but we'll see.

Those are all so pretty! Oh, to be able to just whip something out like that. I have a hard enough time whipping something out of my head, but to get my hands to interpret those thoughts is pert near impossible.

Love your little creations. I am a pastel lover, but lately have really been loving the natural earthy creams and beiges. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I love your blog name, btw.
