After dinner, the ladies do a craft--old jewelry in a shadow box.
We used treasured family costume jewelry that is too loved to throw out
but ones we would never wear.
The fixings were removed and then the main piece is glued in place.
We had a wonderful time picking through memories!
Just a small glimpse of our group!
And I learned that the cup portion hanging down on those ghost fungi have a flower inside!
See what I mean?! It has a perfect star!
Pretty amazing and intricate.
And as more boat rides took place, they picked a water lily---did you know their stem goes all the way down to the bottom of the pond?!
And here is a view we never get to see-the bottom of the water lily is beautiful-great inspiration for a sock yarn!
What a magnificent bloom!
It looks like you had a wonderful time! After dinner crafting is a great idea. I love what you did with the jewelry. I'm sorry now I didn't take more of my grandmother's when I had the chance. She had a huge Sarah Coventry collection.ReplyDelete
My family used to do more crafting, but this year my crafty SIL didn't come to town. Your project produced something worth displaying!ReplyDelete
That ghost flower is amazing!
What a great idea for a craft! So creative!ReplyDelete
Great craft idea and lovely lily!ReplyDelete
Your Thanksgiving sounded wonderful. The weather was so beautiful and of course being with your family makes the day just perfect.ReplyDelete
What a fun thing to do with old jewelry! ANd the underside of a waterlily is really pretty !! Thankyou . I've not picked any or seen the underside ever at our botanic gardens or in lakesReplyDelete
My family usually plays games after the table is cleared and dishes are done. The water lily's root is definitely long and the bloom is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
What a great idea to do that together! So lovely to have the family together and spend time with them indoors and outdoors... xxReplyDelete
Thank you for a great visit! Love you!ReplyDelete
