I thought I'd share one of my Tattered Angels projects from this month. The theme for August is "Texture Paste". Boy the TA Design Team knocked this one out of the park! If you want to see they're creations, you can see them all on the Tattered Angels Inspiration blog.

I had this idea in my head that I wanted to create a canvas that would hold a bottle that you could actually put fresh flowers in. So this vintage bottle is just attached by wire so it can be slid out so water can be added. I had envisioned this finished project with sunflowers, so once it was done and it was time to photograph, I needed to get a couple. I have gotten them at Walmart and the grocery store in the past...but of course, none this time. So I came home and call the "one and only" floral place here in my tiny town. Nope! None! Darn! I'm out of time... I'm going to have to give in an just use artificial sunflowers (which I had at home).. but.... the entire point of this project it suppose to be that you can use fresh flowers! It's ridiculous to drive the 17 miles back to Fremont to go to a florist there to get some. (But.. when I get my mind set that something is going to be a certain way... trust me I've done crazier things :) I'm so deep in thought about that I was going to do, I don't even notice ......................On both sides of the road the ditches are lined with ..
You guessed it... SUNFLOWERS
Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy!!! lol
The numbers and butterfly on the vintage bottle are 7 Gypsies Rub ons .
Images and stamps are all from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.
We've been busy working on getting things lined up for the flea market. I thought I'd show you some of the vintage goodies. It will be a flea Market, but also Crafts and Fall Decor, as well as... baked goodies. The girls from my art group and I are putting on this event here in our big side yard, the first weekend in October.
Look at this awesome chair my sister re did! I love it!
I'll share more photos little by little, as we go. ( just because it's fun :) but we also have an events page on facebook if you want to see more photos and keep up with updates if you live near and plan to come. Fall Festival and Flea Market on Facebook
I made Pumpkin Muffins, Banana Muffins, and Blueberry Muffins one day...
and a big double batch of Monster Cookies yesterday.
Things are coming together.
The other girls have Canopy's, but I didn't. Dan had been checking into sizes and prices to see what was the best. I like this one because the sides and back can be up or down. .. and we can put it to good use next June with Jarad and Kate get hitched.
The more the merrier!
I'm super excited for this... we've all been having fun getting things lined up and planning.
Okay.. enough rambling for today. lol
Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend my friends!
