Loving the Big Reds. Next are flakey whites. Have 8 of them ready to finish today and photos coming soon. After that I have crinkly Christmas Reds and then I will have over 30 vases done and ready for whatever! I think I will list them all on etsy now but indeed these will be taken to an outdoor market in September. The Gallery I have work at in Spring Texas plans to have outdoor markets on Saturday. Can't beat the price: $25 plus they have a tent. I'm hoping by then to have my own floral/stem arrangements made. Not sure I can pull it off, but between Tod and I one of us has got to come up with something interesting! My biggest challenge still is not having room to open boxes and find goodies, let alone lay it all out and put things together in a mock set up. I do what i can...the vases are easy, relatively speaking. I dont have to lay them out and decide what to do with them, they are honest hard work mostly done outdoors and nothing else is needed to put them together.
I am excited about the prospect of creating accessories for these vases. While I love the look of dried or living flowers there is something wonderful about using metal flowers or wood as an alternative accessory. And for you painters, your foot long paint brushes will go perfectly in here in case you are still resorting to nasty yogurt containers or pickle jars. I'm just sayin.....
