Happy Memorial Day Everyone! We have a blog hop this week and we so love sharing these with you. OurBBTB2 Challenge this week, "Sweethearts" cartridge hosted by the talented
The first thing that popped to mind was a wreath and I decided if I could find one I would do it but I was not going to search high and low for a wreath. I ran into the Salvation Army Store and there waiting for me was a grapevine wreath - PERFECT. I had all the chicken feathers and knew the chicken - so it is sort of a memorial to the chicken - works fine. Multi colored ribbons, some sea shell charms and the birdies were cut using the "50 States" cartridge. My favorite birds are on that cartridge.
My son took me to lunch on Mother's Day to El Torito's, it was mobbed and we spent an hour or so outside waiting for a table. They have these HUGE wooden doors and sitting perched on the door at the very top - 2 morning doves, it was as if they were greeting all the moms, and what made it even more special they were building a nest on the other side of the doors at the rain gutter junction. We had the best time watching them, one always remained on the door and one would fly off and return with a twig, or piece of paper, etc for the nest, place it and then fly back to the door. I think of them and that special day every time I look at the wreath.
I am the last one on the list for our blog hop so it is my pleasure to say thank you for visiting and hope you enjoyed.
