~DAINTY PINK CASES FOR GIFT GIVING~
I dined with my sweet Momma a couple of days ago and we had the most wonderful time just chatting away. She is an amazing woman and I'm in awe of her strength and grace. With Mother's Day on the horizon I'm more thankful than I can say that I still have her in my life. She's deserves more than she's ever been afforded and this year I really want to do something special for her. This is especially important to me since my daddy can no longer celebrate or appreciate her contribution to the lives of his four children...
~SWEET and PETITE~
But what to do or buy??? From sewing to painting she's taught me most all I know about creating. She's the most talented, gifted woman in my life and I hope to honor her presence in a beautiful way...
~GIFT CARD READY~
After much thought I've just about decided to treat her to a Day Spa!!! As soon as I can I'm going to purchase a Gift Card from one of our local Salons and tuck it inside one of the hand painted Cases you see above! I truly dislike the ones you can buy at the store (see below...perfect for a 5 year old but NOT my Mother!). Besides...the Tin is a gift in and of itself! I can just see it nestled into a sweet little vignette in her home.
Truthfully, I wasn't even sure I could paint the metal case you see above. It took some experimenting and patience for sure! Too much paint and it all chipped off. Too little and the original design bled through. :( So frustrating! In the end I'm happy with the final results! Romantic, feminine and sooo much sweeter for someone who deserves the Moon!
I'm planing on offering a few Cases on my A Gathering Place Website under the Mother's Day Category later this week. I hope you'll check them out when you have time! I'll only be painting a handful in case you're interested!
Blessings to you today. I'm late with this post! I've been busy working in my studio and enjoying time in my garden.
Love to you~
