With October being the "new June" for weddings, I've got several bridal showers and weddings I'll be attending soon. That means finding just the right gift for the newlyweds. I think I found a few!
Recently my daughter and I visited The Pottery Place at The Avenue. Have you seen their selection?! So many choices and the perfect place to create something special for the couple. Don't just think fall crafts or wedding gifts, the holidays are quickly approaching. Now is a great time to think about that gift list.
My daughter chose a coffee mug and painted it a beautiful aqua, black, and gray combination. She personalized it with her inital too.
I chose a cake stand to use at an upcoming shower. The theme is going to be "She's beginning a new adventure. Going from Miss to Mrs." with vintage maps as the decor. Since the cake plate is round, I thought it would look nice painted like a globe. I also painted Isaiah 6:3b "The whole earth is filled with His glory." around the bottom.
I painted the Old Man (aka Toby) on the far right. He's about 13 and missing several teeth but he's my buddy. His portrait is sitting on the mantel right now, along with my daughter's painting (far left) of our Schnauzer, Annabelle. Haven't decided on where they will be hanging yet. Stay tuned ;)
So, are you ready to get crafty!? I'll be sharing other fall craft ideas this month!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
