My Tattered Angels Spring Table Setting

Finally I can share one of the things that has been keeping me busy lately.   Beautiful paints and sprays from Tattered Angels helped me create this spring table setting/and projects.
I've posted the photos here, that are on the TA website..but you can see it all here

The place mats are done with AccuCuts Square-Scalloped-11 1/2" Die
but they have a number of big dies that would work great for this. You can also purchase decorative edged die cut papers.   I started with everything white or unfinished, then added TA paints for color.  Paper, paper doilies, white flowers, unpainted clay pots ect..

Pin Wheels for name cards.  The great thing about starting with everything white and unfinished, is that I could color coordinate everything so easily.

Drilling holes in plastic eggs and setting them on this misted wood candle holders, make fun salt and pepper shakers huh?

and .. white flowers... turned beautiful with some TA Chalkboard spray.

You can see all these larger and with all the supplies and directions HERE.


Wanted to give  you a little update on my mom.  She is doing much much better. Actually had her out for Corned Beef and Cabbage on St Patricks day ,and she spent the night.  Gabby came here the next day and gave her and perm, and a cut.  Yep.. that's our pretty momma, smiling there. Thank you all for your concern and prayers for her. You guys are the best!

While Gabby work her magic on moms hair, Wyatt and I played.  He's so good at entertaining me! lol

He was being a puppy.. don't cha know :)   crawling threw my legs.  I think we entertained mom too. haha

After all that fun, Weston took mom and I to lunch in Fremont.  Glad Wes and Grandma had some time to visit also.
Jarad has been in Canada for work for WEEKS, and just got back Friday... so I had to stop over and see him for just a minute before heading back home.    Always something going on over there. lol  Wes was there also.  Here is Jarad showing me how to drive the buggy.  ( FUN)
 and I didn't even wreck.

And.. then just to top off the week...........

Jarad and Kate have an addition to their family... as of yesterday.  (she is still awaiting a name)... any thoughts ??
We'll, guess who is babysitting the new Grand-pup as we speak??   You guessed it.  I begged :)

She is ADORABLE!!!  even if she did just chew my camera cord.  Good thing I had just uploaded photos, because I wont be able to do it again, until I make a trip to pick up a new cord. ( This Grammas fault for not watching closer) . You forget how much you need to be aware of them all the time.  Our dogs are both 10+ years old.. so I haven't done the "puppy thing" for a while.      Aly and Molly are acting so weird , it's had me laughing all day. They have never been around a puppy. It's hysterical!

   ******* Hope you are all having a nice weekend!  *********

These are great as usual! So glad to see your Mom up and around.

That puppy is a cutie. Maybe Sadie for a name? It sort of came to me when I saw here.

Thanks again for sharing your art.

Your MaMa is looking so pretty, Ms. Vicki and so happy to hear she's doing better:)

The puppy is PRECIOUS. She looks exactly like my brother's dog when she was a pup. How about "Honey" as her name? She is the color of honey and is just darling!

LindaC said...

Sounds like the puppy should be called 'Munch'!

Good to see your mom looking so well.

Have a great day. LC
