Sheet Music Daffodils - WOYWW 205

I will apologize in advance for not having a finished product to show you!  But I will share with you my new project which is creating gift bags using a purchased bag from the dollar store (Dollar Tree here in the States) and using one of my handpainted pieces of sheet music as the embellishment!  Of course,,,I love to go through my junk jewelry stash and will probably add a piece of bling or two as well.

(I can see I need to fiddle with my camera and take better photos in the future, so sorry). 
Also on my work desk is a little mermaid I painted ! She will go on a Happy Birthday sign for my little great-niece to hang at her Mermaid Party on Saturday!
While on the patio this morning doing my photographing, I decided to take a few extra photos to share with you.  Things blooming at my house!  The yellow blossoms are on an Esperanza bush planted in a pot. For those of you who don't know Spanish,,this means "Hope"!  Also blooming is a fabulous Amaryllis.  They usually bloom in pots inside the house around the Christmas holidays! But here in Texas they might bloom twice in one year!  Yea!

So, Happy Wednesday to you all and please feel free to hop over to Julia's and see what others around the world have on their work desks!  Just click HERE!

  10. What a lovely idea to make gift bags. I too love to use old sheet music as a background for my card and journal projects. I am sure the recipients will love them.

    Your flowers are stunning. I think your photos are wonderful. Enjoy your blooms.

    Thank you for your comment about the Inn and our 50th anniversary. It was a wonderful event and memory for us.

    Due to my sore hands I am even slower then usual at getting around but here I am at last. As I can't create even though I have time off I decided to get to as many WOYWW players as I could till Sunday :o). OMG you do such lovely the luminous look of your painted flowers over the musio paper and the little mermaid is divine!!
