Love in Bloom~

Oh! I'm so excited about the
first bloom from my February crop.
You can grow them too!
All it takes is some inspiration
from Blogland. I got it today and
am passing on to you...

Dig around in your supplies for
a bit of burlap scrap


attach to a cedar stick from the yard...
it helps to live in the country,
you city gals will have to be more creative.

Needs to be red?
a sprinkle of red and black craft paint
smeared in a paper plate
and have fun with your brush
a little brush here
a little brush there
e-i-e-i-oooo so pretty!

add a little L*O*V*E patch that
just takes a scrap of ribbon,
yarn, whatever...

secret...I used a real needle not that old rusty nail.I can't wait for more to bloom

Go on put your own twist to it,
it's so much fun!

Now that's a bit of eye candy. And the way that you explained it, it sounds so simple. I may just try it!

Have a wonderful night!
