poinsettia tree skirt

Gail from Purple Hues and Me was truly inspired by a lovely white poinsettia stocking made by Yvonne of StoneGable.

I can only imagine it was crazy tedious to cut out all those petals, but the outcome sure is beautiful!

Jewelry Display Frames

Anne from To the Stars Through Difficulty said, “A few months ago, I spotted some adorable jewelry “frames” on Pottery Barn’s website and determined to make my own.
