Stars and Stripes forever....a rustic wreath celebrating America.

Remember the paper chains made from the gum wrappers of your youth? Well, this one (modern) kept getting longer and longer and I decided I wanted to do something unique with it. The stars are made of corregated cardboard with a bit of white acrylic craft paint, the bow is from an old florist basket, and the many feet of blue foil paper chain is wrapped around an inexpensive wire wreath from a craft store.

I think it came out pretty well! :)

A tiny troll angel with green hair that sits on my scanner/printer.

Daisies......wild ones that grow as weeds, Gerber daisies, any kind of daisy makes me smile.
