JUST LOVE TRYING OUT NEW THINGS

PRIMITIVE GOURD GARLANDS
This past holiday season I did a couple of Christmas Fayres and had great fun along the way..I made a few of these prim garlands and they went down a storm..I love making them and they fit in with most home decor schemes from  shabby country to the real prim look..they come with their own aromer depending on the drieds you use..my hubby bought me the neccessary equipment and I am now drying my own fruit and veggies to make my garlands..like I have said many times I love to try out new ideas and just have plain old fun along the way..this one is now available on ebay along with the prim bears..well I am hooked on making them too..LOL..♥

Oh how neat!! I love the garland! That's wonderful that your hubby bought you everything you need to make them. I'm sure they will sell well on ebay because not everyone has the equipment to make them or the time that it takes. It looks great and I love the gourd in the middle!

Aw, another teeny tiny bear. Both or your bears are so adorable!!

Best wishes on your selling!

Good Morning Angi Sweetie...
Oh how beautiful is your garland. I love that you used a gourd as well. That really balances it. Looks like you used some beautiful slices of (is it grapefruit) or oranges that made those beautiful large slices? They are so elegant. A beautiful job.

Your bears of course are beautiful as well. Love the little key attached to the one and the little shirt with the heart on the other. You do such gorgeous work sweet friend.

Thank you so much for sharing with me today. I love coming to see what you have created. You inspire me to create sweet friend.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry
