altered wood blocks

















Well how are you today?   We are knee deep in laying flooring...house is in shambles but I popped in to share a couple of altered wood blocks I created using RRR ribbons.  I cut them from scrap, painted, and aged them up.   I than covered edges with papers and white wide crochet lace and May arts burlap ribbon with center stitch in green.   Other ribbons include seam bindings in baby pink and green.   From there it was all about adding fun little touches...the first is a gardening theme.....all in greens and stamps from PTI...the other all about home.    I used snippets of vintage laces, a bingo card, and wood knobs as well to add unique touches.  Lots of flowers and buttons were used as well.  I think these would make great Mother's day gifts.....creating your own theme.   Hope you enjoy!   Thanks for letting me share!   Cherry

These are absolutely DARLING. Love your blog and the things you make. I lost your blog for awhile! Was not receiving your posts (or many others) and found out Feedburner is not working anymore. I notice your feed signup is still using feedburner. I've changed to Bloglovin and will follow your blog using Bloglovin. Your followers may not be receiving your posts! I wasn't!
