I wanted to share some of the projects I have completed recently with you today! I bought these picture frame key rings for $1 from a discount catalog about 5 years ago and forgot I had them. I decided to give them a makeover and hang them on my sweet pink tree in my kitchen. I took the key rings off of the frames and gave each one a hook so they would hang on the tree.
Then they got a nice coat of white paint and some sanding when the paint dried. I inserted some sweet images that would match with the theme of the tree and they were done!
They were so easy to make and they are just adorable!!! It's amazing what you can do with a little creativity! I also hand-painted two dozen of those sweet teapot ornaments you see beside the picture frame ornament especially for this tree!
Here is the whole pink tree all dressed up for a summer tea party. In Oklahoma we are resorting to having our tea parties indoors this summer because it hasn't been below 100 degrees here since May. Everything in my yard is crispy!
I've been busy making some of those daring faux cakes that you see on the table too. I will show you a close up of each one! What a lovely side table ready for afternoon tea!I bought these candle holders several years ago and painted them white last weekend. Now they are just gorgeous. Don't you love how ornate they are?
Here are the close up pictures of the tea cakes I made from styrofoam, light weight spackle, embellishments, and glitter. I think they turned out so darling! This is my favorite one. It is supposed to be a wedding tea cake. Aren't the little white doves just precious?Here is my second-favorite tea cake. I love the rose on this cake. They're too pretty to eat!
I love the criss-cross pattern of "frosting" on this tea cake. It looks like the real thing!
This tea cake reminds me of Mary Englebright. I think it is because of the bright pink roses. It is too cute!
Here is the big mama cake I made. I purchased a cake stand from Rebecca a few years ago and it has been sitting bare lately so I decided she needed a cake, and she needed one that would last longer than a week and not grow mold all over the top. This is the perfect cake for the most beautiful shabby pink cake stand. I am so happy! My tea table is finally complete! I am, however, making plans to make some faux cookies, cupcakes, and candies to add to the table soon.
I have been working on creating some beautiful paper flowers that my mom, Ginger, taught me to make. I am using the pages of an old book I found at an antique store for $2 and then adding glitter and embellishments. I am having so much fun with these things! I am going to make a bunch of them and glue clips and/or magnets on the back and give them out when I give gifts to my friends. I will show you how they turned out soon!
I want to thank Beverly for hosting another Pink Saturday event for us. I hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Pink Saturday!
Blessings to You!
