Autumn's Chair.....

 Hello and a very warm welcome to you!
It's been quite awhile since I've crafted anything as we're in the midst of getting ready to move, but when I saw this challenge at Moxie Fab World...WOW....I think the trigger picture speaks for itself.


What isn't there to love about this vintage hair clip adorned with the most breathtaking porcelain flowers in Autumn colors?  The back drop of the white bowl truly shows off the intricate details.

 I was so inspired by it all as the shape of the combs made me think of a wooden lawn chair.  This shabby chic piece of jewelry made me think of my great-grandmother and therefore I created a project that represented where she might have enjoyed spending her time, her love of flowers and most importantly, her love of family.
If you're inspired by this, there's still time to play until Sunday!
Chair and flowers were all cut on the Silhouette Cameo
It was so nice to actually craft something, but I had the most fun sharing it with you.
Hope this finds you all doing well and looking forward to the weekend!
Hugs n' Happy Crafting....

A simply glorious make, Lisa - so glad you found time for it. The colours are beautiful, and I love the chair - a wonderful take on the inspiration photo.

Oh how I sympathise with the moving house bit... I'm in the throes of that myself - total chaos!!

Hello Q
AmAZING project, how on earth you made this is beyond my imagination, even if you did use the Silly to cut, it still had to be put together, and my it is so well done, unique and interesting it certainly captures the eye and the flowers are fantastic.

How cool! Love the chair but the flower arrangement is awesome! Love the hair comb too!

Margaret said...

Gorgeous!! The flowers are stunning and I LOVE the comfy chair too!

So glad you had a chance to play with your crafting goodies again!!

Jeanne J said...

I can't believe the flowers and chair are paper cut on your cameo - they look so solid and sturdy - you captured the inspiration photo perfectly - and I can see how the comb became the slats on the chair. Your grams would love this.

Lori said...

You created a gorgeous flower spray! And what an awesome job on that chair - love how it looks just a little worn out. Wouldn't you want it to decorate your garden?
