Sunday find...


I reached for this book the moment I stepped into the booth space of A Cottage Muse at the Wrentham Country Store. I was surprised to find that it was actually a faux book (made of wood and painted white). Nonetheless, I scooped it up, continued my browsing....but not really paying much attention as all the while I was mentally taking inventory of my craft supplies and what I might have to add to the charm of this darling book.


And this is what I came up with....


A bow made from a bit of scrunched and tea stained seam binding.


A few faux crystals in various sizes...


And some tissue paper cut and glued to fit the edges.

For those of you not lucky enough to visit the Wrentham Country Store in person.....you can visit her etsy shop at A Cottage Muse for a gander at all her wonderful offerings!

What an awesome find. I found your blog through A cottage muse- i've just scrolled down to see a couple of the things you have found and they are beautiful. I need to spend more time shopping i think lol that could be dangerous. I'm a brand new blogger of 2 weeks and would love for you to come over for a visit if you have some time. http://paintedwhyte.blogspot.com I added myself to your follower list - i really look forward to seeing what you find next.
