A Simple Something...

Hi Friends...
I'm bored beyond belief while recovering from foot surgery...I can't get around very well to work on any projects yet, but while sitting with my leg elevated for the 5th day...(UGH)...I was browsing through Pinterest and came across this:,un-vase-entoure-de-ficelle,2610153,70482.asp

A simple twine vase!!...perfect!!

It caught my eye and looked simple enough for me to accomplish and I had just the perfect flowers to use in my version...these lovely white tulips my dear friend brought me...Whatcha think???

A jar, glue gun, some twine and flowers:
can't get more simple than that!!

I tied a sheer ribbon around the base of the flowers...
lovely & simple:  my mantra these days...

xo, Mariaelena

  4. That is just lovely! Nice job whilst you are sitting and dreaming about what you WANT to be doing. I sooo get it! It is fun to be able to do something-even a small project, isn't it? xo Diana

  5. Very nice vase! Good girl for staying off your foot--I worked for a podiatrist for many years and it is so important to elavate that foot after surgery, makes for much faster healing. Kind of fun to have an excuse to sit on Pinterest I would think:)
