Yesterday ,my daughter had a birthday party to attend. I wanted to help her creatively wrap the gift;she wanted a traditional look.. We compromised! I made these cute little pipe cleaner rose rings. I saw this on Martha Stewart's wedding show. We tied one on her friend's present and used green ribbon to attach it. It was my only personal touch.
I want to make my Mom a small spring type basket-she loves flowers. I have sent her flowers in the past, but this needs to be a hands on kit. I am including the peat pot dots ,some seeds, gloves for the bow and a rose made out of money, for take out food or another treat. Mom for years said her favorite color was brown, I use to think it was because of dirt. I asked her, is that why? "No", she said, "it is because I look good in brown." Now, it is black, this color has various meanings. I will
enclose a black rose ring. I guess they really do have black roses right?! (pics of basket tomorrow; waiting for my camera battery to charge).
