Oh Hello!

Hey everyone, how's your week going? Have you played out there yet?
this week at CCCB Char has the most beautiful image as inspiration, you have to use at least 5 flowers {sigh, I am a flower girl}, and 2 different papers.
The DT did an amazing job wth the inspiration and since Ros beat me to creating the paper bucket, yes go see it!!! then I had no choice but to create the chair...Remember I am a paper weaver and I love to rack my brain...
so here it cames on the raw

I had this small bucket a 3" diameter so you can figure out the scale
and the paper straws measure 7 3/4" tall

weaving...

closer view and a tiny tag to match, stamped with an Amy Tangerine sentiment
and a bit of pink twine

super sweet!!! I think this would look so fab on the entrance foyer at your table
to welcome your guest, well even you, who doesn't like roses huh?


Now here's Char inspiration photo
on a side note I have to tell you, after attempting to create furniture how much I admire the craftsmen that produce these gorgeous handmade pieces.  The weavers that by hand work with plants to create the perfect sitting spot for you.  Even balancing the chair was a hassle as I had to recut several of my pieces so it had the perfect balance to stand on its own..  The weaving is mighty strong to take the whole bunch of Prima blooms and the metal bucket.  I used Basic Grey pp.
But I have to say the effrot was oh so worth it!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
