Hi again, everyone! Are you excited that the work week is over? Look at what’s happening over here!
That is an “Otto’s Thrill” dahlia, folks. And it’s bigger than my hand!!! This plant was so unhappy this summer in Vegas, but now with cooler temps in October, she is thriving, and the star of our autumn garden. Wish I had shot this in morning light – at that time, she literally glistens!
I’m planning on being in the garden all day tomorrow. So I’m going to post this a bit early. I picked up a humble little chipboard box at my local craft store a few months ago. It’s been sitting sad and neglected in a dusty corner of the craft room. Since I used up some of my old Glitz, I decided to dig into some of the new, “Yours Truly” gorgeousness!
For the top, I applied some bling, sparingly, and a Jolee’s bloom I had been hoarding for just the perfect project. Then as a final touch, I inserted a little left-over tulle and stick pins I had received from Scrapbook Island for my last round of projects for them.
