Lazy Days

Yesterday was my lazy day.  The weather was beautiful.  I played with photos, saw a movie, and just chilled.  Oh, and I made over a little basket.



This is one of the vintage willow baskets I found a little while ago.




I added a few of my fabric roses, and stiffened them like I did with my shabby frame. I spray painted the entire thing, brushed it with gesso, laid some lavender inside and took pretty pictures outside.








See ya later.
