Home Sweet Home #12

Welcome to Home Sweet Home!  For this special day I thought I would create something very romantic. 

To create this cone for my flowers, I just stapled together some poster board.  I then went to my go to place for vintage graphics The Graphic's Fairy.

I am trying not to texture every photo I put on here but I did just two.  This texture by 
Kim Klassen  is called Luminous.

Everyone ready for the Royal wedding?  Will you be watching?  Are you a little curious about the dress?  I am so wanting to see the flowers!  The trees they have been unloading into Westminster Abbey have me extremely excited.   Predictions on the flowers?  I am thinking white and bright greens.  Can't wait to see that!  

So, have yourself a spot of tea and enjoy the wedding, if your watching.  This Union Jack high tea post of mine is here.

I will link to these lovely blogs also.  Go and check them out.
