Sachets

I said I wasn't going to whine anymore about the heat, but......WHINE...100 again today, and more of the same tomorrow.  Still, I started a few furniture pieces over the weekend when the temps were a bit cooler.  I just have to finish them off.  Till then, I'll show you a few more little creations.





It all started with the heat. Being cooped up inside, I started playing with my scrap material.  I made pillows, and now I'm making sachets.



I used some of the material I transferred the french book page onto.  At first I was going to make another pillow, but decided to cut the material into smaller pieces, and make lavender sachets.



I added one of my lace flowers to one, and a ribbon flower to the other.  They both have tiny pearls in the center.  I'll be making more of these, cause I have a lot more scraps.

The box they're in was another little creation.  It's an old box I glued a thick strip of lace ribbon to.  I went over the whole thing many, many, times with gesso and paint. It's hard as a rock, and makes for pretty little storage.



I'm getting ready for my show at Kane County the first weekend of August.  I didn't do it in June, or July.  So, I'm going to be pretty busy, but I'll share as much as I can.  For all my blogland buddies I exchanged emails with concerning my health, I do feel better, and promise I won't overdo it this week.  Love ya.

Sachets are very sweet and the box is wonderful. You have my permission to whine away at the heat. 104 in Nebraska today. More of that to come, weatherman says. Enough already!

I have to say the heat has me slowing to a crawl by today. I painted a board for a sign and that's it! You'll sell tons of those sachets! ~ Maureen

I know what you mean about the heat. I usually get up early to garden but overslept and all my plans were shot. The sachets are sweet.

Love the sachets! I have actually been bringing furniture pieces inside to my craft room and painting because of the heat....Sure slows down our productivity! Oh, don't go to Google + no one will be able to comment unless they are in your "Circle" what ever that is???!!

Really lovely little lavender bags Rosemary. The photographs really show their texture.

As for the heat, it's only 99 days to Halloween. It'll get cool!

Thankfully, it's cooled down a bit where I live, but I dealt with the 100 degree weather last week. Sorry you're still dealing with it. I know how miserable it is, so whine away. I really like your cute sachets. That fabric is wonderful, and the sachets are beautiful with the embellishments.

100...yuck, I'd be right there having a whine fest with you Rosemary! That's the nice part about FL, the temp and humidity rises then we get those glorious thunderstorms to cool it down:)

I love your sachets! I'll have to check in on your Etsy shop.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Hi Rosemary! I just love your sachets and the little box. That lace looks familiar. ;) Got my order in the mail today. Thanks for the bonus! Missed you at the last flea market but it was so stinkin' hot it's probably a good thing you skipped that one. Hopefully August will be better.

Judy said...

Hi Rosemary, I hate to tell you this, but this heat wave has spawned some glorious little creations from you. Each one is more precious than the next. Live on in the A/C, you have to...but take those heat breaks every now and then, they seem to be good for you!

auntiejenni said...

i'm grateful for that heat wave, because look what i made you do! any chance you would consider doing a tutorial telling how you printed that french text on that fabric and what kind of fabric you used? i would LOVE to do these....but not if you, like....have these for sale somewhere. anyway..they are absolutely wonderful. i love everything you do!
