Une Rose pour votre Coeur

A little shabby chic piece done on a weathered board from a squirrel feeder that fell apart. I used upholstery tacks to fasten on the deliciously rusted metal (a gift from our good friend Dawn up in Port Townsend) and then threaded the stem of the silk rose through the holes in the metal.
I love the colours - the vintage weathered green and the soft pale pink of the flower both such a lovely contrast against the harsher rust. One more for Open Studios.


  1. I love the colors, too, and the contrast of the worn and rusty with the just-barely-faded rose. I swear not one bit of useful art material is ever overlooked by you; that sort of transformation might be thought magical.
