Trying to duplicate my own work!

I received an order from a sweet woman for this collaged platter I made a while ago. I have several of the same components but not all of them, I did my best to recreate it ~ it's a simple piece really, but I love the composition of it. I used the vintage french paper that I posted earlier but faded the color out a bit in my photo editing software ~ my favorite part? The old watch piece ~

I'm so very thankful for the men and women who have defended and continue to defend our country, it's freedom and the principles it was founded upon.

Wishing you a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!

Hi Dawn... Happy 4th... The lady should be "Over the Moon" with the platter.. It turned out stunning.... Love the beautiful post card.... Have a wonderful day. I am off to golf... The rest of the day will be up for grabs after about 2:00. I am sure cooking out will be in there somewhere since eating is my favorite thing to do.... I have some red yummy home grown strawberries that are calling for a fresh pie later today also... Think a mouth watering steak might be mighty fine also..... Have a good one...
