Sunflowers for a Friend



I just completed this piece for a friend of mine, Patti,
whose kitchen has sunflowers--it seemed like the
perfect theme to work with. It also includes her family's
monogram.



It was created with vintage graphics, fibers, and
commercial papers and embellishments. It suspends
from a hanger that I got from Mind Wide Open.
If you get a chance, visit Gail’s shop--it is amazing!



I also created one of my new silver-toned dog tags to match!

I am sure that she is going to love it. You are such a generous person Cindy! You honestly should start putting some of this stuff in a store. You would be a hit!

On another note, I love that I can come to your blog and you always have something new. I should make that one of my goals when I am feeling 100%.

Take Care~ Sherry

A Hopeful Heart said...

Oh, Cindy, it's beyond beautiful!!!! It's totally gorgeous. As always, you have created something stunning. I always stand amazed at your creative abilities.

Anyhow, I LOVE it. Thank you so much!!! While my sunflower theme kitchen doesn't necessarily "flow" with the red, pink, and white of the parlor/formal livingroom on the same floor, there is no way in the world I am going to deviate from my sunflowers. I just love their bright, cheerful faces. Your lovely gift will be a gorgeous addition. Thank you SO much for giving me such a perfect gift.

Love and hugs...and blessings for a fabulous day,
Patti
