I like the way my old vintage box arrangement turned out.
All that’s new is a brown transfer ware platter I found at an estate sale this week for $15 with 25% off. And some cheap flower picks.
You see, sometimes you score when you create a craft or project. But not always.
When I start a new project, I have the best of intentions. I even have some idea of what I want to do. I’m very organized in the rest of my life. But my “projects” just “evolve” and sometimes veer off the road a bit.
This lampshade did veer off the road a bit…
I ended up with burned fingers and little gaps all around the top.
Then I go digging through my embellishment drawer and I get out these gold leaves and try to hide my mistakes. But I misjudged a bit on those and it sort of looked worse.
I’ve got other fall decorating ideas in my head. And I hope it does not entail more burned fingers.
Or glitzy blunders.
