Don't you just love when something just falls together as if it was meant to be? This Welcome sign for example was one of those things. I bought the flower at Goodwill when I was home visiting my parents in Ohio. It was actually part of a garden stake and the flower was meant to hold a tea candle. It was all brown and very boring, but I just thought it had potential. I actually bought 2. They rolled around in my trunk for months because winter had set in and I had actually thought I would eventually use them in the garden. Well last week it just sort of hit me that they would look great painted red and added to a Welcome sign. I just love how the red, yellow and white all look together, just cheerful! My neighbors must think I am crazy because I hung one outside just to cheer me up a little when I come home from work. It's a great pop of color among all the white snow.
I almost finished my little project, should be able to share it with you tomorrow!
