"Sing the Wondrous Story"…

053

With her love of music, the color blue and all things glitter, I especially created this Christmas piece with my daughter in my heart this evening.

I started with a small sized peat pot and painted it white.  then mixed in a little blue paint to bring the colors together making it a soft blue.

After allowing the paint to dry ~ I then cut a paper doily to adorn the front of the front of the pot.  Shredded some music paper and found the perfect tree that already had the glitz and glamour needed. Assembled a mixture of ribbon and a pretty brad.

Once I put everything into place the way I had envisioned it, it still needed something!  something special…but, what? 052

As I stared for a bit, I thought of what talent she has at writing songs and singing as she wonders through our home…I than began to flip through the hymnal that lay before me, and the words at the top of the page read

“SING THE WONDEROUS STORY”

…what a fabulous addition to this creation made especially for her!

I hope she loves it! 053
