Call me way late to the party, but I ‘just’ got around to making my summer fan pull. I’ve kept this one up, which I made for spring, all of this time.
But I’ve got 2 things to say about that: 1) I’m not really late TO the party. I think more, I’ve been too busy being AT a party, to find time for such things, as getting crafty. 2) The spring fan pull did not look all that out of place, so it didn’t bug me too much. I mean, it’s not like it was snowflakes or anything.
Thus, I’m giving myself a break. Just in case no one else does.
I did a have a plan in my head for a long time though! I knew I wanted to make it beachey-themed. Seashells, beach colors like warm tans and sea blues.
What I didn’t know, was that I would have splendid company, while I crafted my summer fan pull. My brother and his family were down, and my nephew and niece decided to make a fan pulls of their own, with me! So I enjoyed some nice chit-chat with them, while we crafted. I found it all rather enjoyable, and I think they did too!
So here’s my summer fan pull. Quite summery I think. Do you like?? I had planned to take photos of my nephew and niece’s fancy fan-pulls as well, but they had put them away, and then we forgot! Darn-it-all. But they did a nice job!
My God Daughter, and her mom (my cousin) and brother (and her brother’s friend) were down recently as well, for the kid’s photo shoot. And my God-Daughter brought me this……
….a hand painted cupcake wine glass, by Delish. Because she knows I love everything about cupcakes.
I really do. I love this glass. I love her.
It’s not the first time she has been so thoughtful. (Nor is is it the 2nd. Or the 22nd.). Last time she was down, she brought me this cupcake plate set and sugar bowl! Because she knows I love everything about cupcakes.
I really do. I love this set. I love her.
But wait…there’s more….
…..She made me, all by herself, this wine cork pull.
I think it’s beautiful. It has HER all over it. Sprinkled with love, for me.
I really love it. And her.
I know….it does kind of seem like she gets the impression I drink a lot of wine, huh?
LOL. But no….I don’t think so. Just look how full that bottle of wine IS!! I’ve had it for weeks! My dad brought it for me, when he came down several weeks ago. He knows I love wine, on occasion.
I really do. I love him.
But my God-Daughter…….She is just the sweetest freckled little thing I have ever met. And as much as I treasure the gifts that she gives me, and always will, I treasure the gift that she is, in my life. I really do.
