Today I'm sharing a box I recycled. Lol..., I'm not that familiar with shabby and my idea of chic may not be artistically correct, so I'm going to leave that up in the air; anyway, I thought it had the look of what shabby chic could look like. I have entered this project in the http://www.frosteddesigns.blogspot.com/ challenge:
I wanted to add a crackle paint to this project because I thought that would look nice but, unfortunately, I was out of black or clear and the other colors I had just wouldn't have done at all.
The box is an ice cream box perched on a candle holder. I painted the recessed grooves on the bottom of the candle holder black to pick up the black box. The cameo I made from UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder) in a mold, and the flowers I made from some leftover scraps. I don't have a clue what I'm going to put in it but I'm certain something will come up...lol!!!
Before I leave, for those of you that asked and thank you for your concern, my back is still giving me some discomfort; nothing I'm not too used to but lately it's just becoming a bit more irritating. However, compared to how I felt prior to surgery -- and now --I'm happy to just be up and walking!!! My concern is to not let it get any worse, which is what I did before surgery and I'm on top of that now. I learned the hard way not to take advantage and I make sure I'm doing all I can to prevent any further complications or another surgery, so that's where I'm at with that. I really don't talk about it much because I don't let it try me, I just try to do what is right and necessary so as not to have any worries, but I do appreciate your concern. Hey, I'm "aging", I don't expect everything to work like it used to..., hee-heee!
Well, I'm off again but I'll be back -- oh, have to remember I've some very appreciated blog awards I have to pass on too!
Hugs! I'll be seeing you!
