At Birdsong in June I won a lovely door prize and realized I didn't include it in any of my earlier posts. Karen Hillman of Ancient Queen Designs handmade these beautiful candles with matching glass trays. They smell wonderful! Karen suggested burning them down a bit and then placing battery operated tea lights inside.
The night before Birdsong started, Karla's friend Angie opened her antique store, My Father's Daughter, for our group in honor of her birthday. There was food and fun, including an opportunity to make a little art. Beth Leintz of Gathering Dust brought tons of amazing supplies and we made collages on old file dividers.
I may add a few millinery flowers to mine. I'm still studying it. I would never have thought to use these dividers in this way, but they make a sturdy background and the metal tabs add lots of interest. Thanks, Beth and Angie!
