It’s May. Hallelujah. May means the last month of school. It means gardening and dinners outside. It means bringing the shorts out of storage, flip flops, and pulling out the fresh and sunny decor. Heck yes. And in today’s case, it also means that it’s time for ANOTHER awesome blog hop – and this time we’re partnering up with DeNami Design!
If you arrived here from the blog of Andrea Matthews, you’re in the right place. To join in the blog hop, head back to beginning for the complete list of designers at The Twinery! Remember: you must visit and leave comments for each designer in order to be eligible for prizes. Enjoy the rest of your hop and the beginning of summer!
Right now, our house is in a state of remodeling disarray. We have drywall mud on the walls in prep for some repainting, stacks of frames waiting for family pictures, piles of fabric that will someday become curtains for all our new windows, and mountains of mulch that will eventually be transformed into new landscaping. (If you had told me that we’d STILL be working on this house nearly 2 years after buying it, I would have rolled my eyes. I think my husband is as addicted to renovation as I am to handmade.) In the midst of all these projects staring us down, I decided to ignore them all completely in favor of something that requires a lot less physical exertion. :)
This was one of those projects that sort of just came together on its own. I had no real plan beforehand; just the mason jars which were inspired by a few scrapbook layouts I’d seen from around the web. I love all the textural details in this little wall hanging….. from the yellow polkadot fabric background, the 3D flower with the Cappuccino twine knot center, the raised “dream” tag with Blossom twine accents, the heat embossed butterflies (courtesy of De Nami Design stamp set in Fancy Flutters), the tiny fabric bird, and the button with the little bow in Caribbean twine. All these small details came together so sweetly and were made perfect with the wood frame that I picked up on clearance at a craft supply store and hand painted with acrylic crafts paints. It’ll look great in our daughter’s bedroom – once the walls are finally finished.
