A Hint of Autumn in the Air
hypertufa planter together for a few years. It's made with cement and vermiculite, and we just haven't had the time to try the process. When in Elizabeth Illinois during our vacation I found several hypertufa planters, and a small change purse with "Elizabeth" embroidered on it. My shopping for dear Betty was done. Happy Happy Birthday dear Betty, I love you so!
In fact it was a emailed photo more than a year ago from Kris that gave me this idea for the favor. When the bride's Mom said, maybe a coaster... I remembered the photo but wasn't sure where I put the printed photo. Kris was able to pull up the email using the keywords leaves, and Penny in seconds! I would have looked for the photo for hours. My girl knows her computer, and what Mom likes. Thanks Kristen!
I have till October to make about 60 leaf coasters. I love to do handwork, especially small projects...instant gratification. This Autumn themed wedding is small and to be held at a rustic location. Don't you just love, LOVE! I'm so happy to be a small part of this young couple's happy day.
Now, add a son sick with an earache, a doc in the box visit, Jon's beautiful Charlotte visiting, 2 computers that needed repair and you have an idea about our weekend. Never got to the flea market like we planned, but never a dull moment. Have a wonderful week dear friends.
