When my January/February issue of Victoria, as well as another magazine or two, arrived in the middle of December, I stuck them in my storage ottoman without looking at them. Sitting down with a magazine right before the holidays was just not on my schedule. It was a nice treat to find them a couple of evenings ago.
This picture from an article on handmade expressions of affection gave me an idea for my thrifted goodies from my last post. I wanted to put some little daisies from my yard in it, but have to find one of those cute little tubes. This actually makes me think about when I was in high school and had a job working in my dad's lab washing test tubes, and doing other laboratory chores. (His lab was part of a medical clinic. It wasn't down in the basement of our home or anything like that!)
The strawberries are a project from the past, filled with lavender, tied onto vintage seam binding.
