Here’s what I was working on for the great “craft a week” project last year during the month of April.
I found a pine branch in the backyard that had fallen in some storm over the winter and painted it silver. I used it all summer to hang little pink votive holders that lit all our after dark meals and conversations all summer.
My mother’s favorite store ( other than the Christmas Tree Shop) was Lord and Taylor. She loved it, and always found a bargain. I remember one year on the nite before Thanksgiving, we fed my father and the Hubs, and off we went to shop our brains out. I think she finished half her shopping that nite. So last spring, after my father had closed out her account, I asked for her card. I framed it and it hangs in my dressing room. It makes me smile every morning.
