Another Sewing Drawer ...

Hello my dear friends,

so before I start sharing my newest creation with all of you today, I just wanted to point out that it is May 9th and it is snowing here in London, Ontario for the second day. It's only snowing a little bit but the white flakes are falling from the sky again.

 I decided not to save my old drawers for my garage sale that might or might not happen anymore but instead use another one. 

 This time though I chose my little daffodils to grow in it. Again I am so pleased that I came up with this idea and that it worked out they way I hoped it would.

And here it is, I hope you will enjoy it! 

I named it  "My Little Spring Daffodils"

This drawer still has it's original little wooden knob which was so nice.

After searching my studio for the right pot, I "planted" my little daffodils in this antique French shaving mug and it looks just perfect in my eyes and ...

... I dyed some hemp in a dark brown color to so it looked like fresh soil.

Again simplistic but pretty, just shouting out that Spring is here and again that little touch of farmhouse feel.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me today here at Todolwen and I hope you have enjoy your short stay.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have peaceful and creative day and stay healthy.
