At My Workbench-Blissful Whites Wednesday!!


HAPPY MONDAY everyone!!
Hope your weekend was wonderful!
We had Bird's baby shower Saturday,
and it was just perfect!
{More about that later in the week!}

I am starting to work on holiday items for friends, family, and the shop!

{lovely buttons created by Dolly Madison! You can find her link in my sidebar}

Can you believe how fast this year is going by??  Too crazy!!

I do have to admit, though, that as 
much as I enjoy creating pumpkins,
I am ready to create all sorts of
other things, now! 


Love the nostalgia of bottle brush trees,
don't you? They are so much fun to work
with, and come in all sizes, too!

Just buy the green ones at the craft stores, and to get them white, remove the stands,
and soak them in bleach water until they
are the desired color!  

You won't want to stop!!
  
 Don't Forget!! 
 
Blissful Whites Wednesday
begins this week!  I will have the link
up tomorrow evening!  Don't miss the fun
and inspiration!!  

Have a delightful week,
and know what a joy it is to have
you visit!!

Blessings and hugs to you!
Becky

Oooh, I am so not ready to put my yummy pumpkins from you away!...I think I will leave them out year round... I don't want to think about winter and Christmas yet, although snow is predicted for us here on Thursday, yikes!... I love bottebrush trees, and have many I have collected over the years... I guess I don't fit in with most of the ladies though... I like to keep mine their original colors... I am sure your white ones will be stunning though!... xoxo Julie Marie

Love those buttons, Becky! Your bottlebrush tree is looking good, too. I bleached some last year for the first time and would like to do more again this year.

Yep, I kinda know how you feel with Halloween (although I have a little more to do yet) I'm now moving onto Christmas things. I adore the little bottle brush trees, I wish we could get them easily here! x

Hi girl, I knew you'd be starting Christmas things-love the buttons and of course the tree is darling too. Can't wait to see what other things you have in the shop. Hope life is good-you'll be having another grand shortly. Our Logan is a month old already-where do the days go.
Love you. Nor

Such a great idea for making the green trees white. I seen some pics of the shower on your daughter's blog. Everything was just adorable!

Dolly Madison said...

Oh, those trees are so cute! What a darling idea. :D Thank you ever so much for adding my buttons, too! I got a sale today of my white buttons, and I'm guessing that the lady who bought them came off your blog. :D That was so fun--I'd been wondering why I got 20 views to my blog from yours today--now I know! Thanks! ;)

Hi Becky, Love your inspiring pics and while the pumpkins are all around my home, I have been creating for winter and Christmas for many weeks already.
I love bottle brush trees and love them in white.

See you Wednesday.
