Sweet littles ~

It's funny how sometimes when you're creating,
it flows so freely!
But sometimes, it's not like that ~
you're not happy with the way something is turning out....
But I will work with it and change things until FINALLY,
it pleases me.

This was one of those things....
but now I'm so in love with it!
Is it bad to love something you make?
I think not ~
just maybe
someone else will love it too?

This is my very first bottle brush tree that I've bleached,
painted, aged, glittered and decorated.
And then I finally found the perfect old jar from my collection
to protect it!

Now in my Etsy store....

My other sweet "little" would be our precious granddaughter Clara ~
Just look at a few of the photos her mama took while she was
playing in the park.....

Can you see the tiny specks of nail polish left on a few of her small fingers?

She's an absolute ham you know....

Ahhh...the joy of being two and a half ~

If we could only remember that pure joy and bottle it!!!

Thank you so much for visiting me here ~
I treasure your comments!!

Have a beautiful Tuesday precious friends,
hugs and love,

The tree is simply gorgeous. I found a small hurricane type vase to put one in, but yours has given me some more wonderful ideas. It's stunning
And being a grandma is one of the greatest gifts we could ever be given. Grandchildren change your life completely and we are never the same. She's a dolly!

Ohhhh girl I LOVE your tree in the jar! You are such a talented gal!

That is just beautiful, Dawn! I love it! Clara is adorable. My daughter was quite the ham in front of the camera when she was younger. It will be interesting to see if my granddaughter will be the same way. She moves so fast now, I have to be quick to snap some pictures!

The bottle tree and it's "Peace on Earth" banner is wonderful.

Clara couldn't be any more adorable. And the next best thing to having that joy bottled is to have her around!

I love your bottle brush in the jar, just beautiful, I love how they look all bleached out.

I love the beautiful little tree in its jar home. I have everything to try it for myself..I think I will! My old jar belonged to my great grandmother. So happy to see these wonderful pictures of this precious child. Will make me smile for the day long. I enjoy your blog so much!
