Take-A-Look Tuesday: Framed Flowers and LinkUp

I posted a little late in the day yesterday - so scroll down if missed my Stamped Washer showoff - they turned out really cute.
Yet another Tuesday is here - yeah!  Today I want to feature something my mother-in-law made for all her daughters/in-laws for Mother's Day:  framed dried flowers.  She brought a whole bunch and I was able to choose my favorite (the silver frame with purple flowers, towards the back).  So simple, yet I love it!  She just gathered wildflowers, smashed/dried them between books, and framed them.  Here's some upclose pics:
Brings a little touch of outside, inside.  So glad she was willing to share these with the world.  Now, let's move on to what you are willing to share with the world...

So here are the basic rules to the link party if this is your first time here:

  • Link to a Specific Post, not your whole blog (to do this, click on the title of the post you want to link and it will open on it's own page, then copy that url)

  • Grab my button below - you can post it on your post, on your sidebar, on a page of a list of link-ups, wherever as long as it's somewhere

  • Try to visit a few other people on the list - it's fun to support and encourage fellow craftiness - and everyone LOVES comments
If you're new to link-ups and have questions let me know and I'll do my best to help

Thanks Mandy... your flowers are elegant ( :

Love the framed flowers! They're gorgeous!! And the frames really set them off well!

Thanks for hosting once again.

those are awesome! I have a giant maple leaf my son found a couple of years ago in the yard off this huge tree I have. I have in my head what I want to do with it, just have to figure out the best way. The leaf has been in a book all this time LOL

I love the Queen Anne's lace frame...

Love the Sugar Bee!
Great ideas!
Can't wait to make the washer necklaces with my daughter and her friends.

Hi! This is my first time linking up to your party (I really like your button). I am linking up a project I made for a blog swap. If you search for it on the host blog, C.R.A.F.T., I'm not sure you'll find it. But I've added your button to my link list over on my blog, Life in the Pitts. I hope that works! And I look forward to linking up in the future.

There are so many great projects linked up...woo hoo! Thank you for hosting! Have a wonderful day!
