Hello, sweet friends! I am grateful for you. ♥️

Today I am sharing a wee bit of inspiration on the Live & Love Crafts blog. To celebrate a special occasion, I used lovely papers from Maja Design's Vintage Romance and a gorgeous Wycinanka chippie.
Wycinanka's Large Clock is painted with white acrylic paint, centered with a stunning Button Etoile, and adorned with a sprinkling of pearls. My sentiment is from Maja's Vintage Autumn Basics, which pairs perfectly with the focal point and the memories to be celebrated and made.
Nestled within the floral arrangement are two beautiful vintage pins: Capped Teardrops and Maya Road Heart Pins. The sweet Love Heart Clip is also from Maya Road, from which dangles a pretty Leaves Chain charm.
Several trims from Sandy's inspiring collection add layers of softness and elegance. One of my favorite parts of the design process is choosing the trims... they make my heart flutter. ♥️

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :)

  3. such a lovely, soft, beautifully feminine creation, Karen. Your "baubles" remind us of days gone by, especially with the old fashioned Roman Numerals in the clock. Doesn't it always seem amazing that we are the products of past generations, and how those generations lived? I marvel at how culture evolves, and that our "DNA" emerges the way it does. It makes everyone in the past so dear to me. Anyway, that's what your beautiful creation brings to mind! Karen, I hope you are improving each day. hugs, de

  13. Hello my sweet friend! I am so glad to finally have a few minutes to drop in and see your beautiful work. I have just fallen so far behind, I may never catch all the way up, but I needed a bit of Karen-deliciousness today! This is just incredibly beautiful! The clip with the metal tassel hanging off of it, is brilliant, what an original and stunning accent piece! The chipboard clock is a wonderful focal piece, but the bling in the centre, just makes the whole thing more elegant! Delightful floral arrangement and the tulle frill at the bottom is just lovely!! Oh how I missed my shabbylicious cup of morning joy while I away!! I do hope you are keeping well my friend. It's been much too long since we caught up, let's do that soon pretty please. sending hugs :)
