Post Box

Hello sweet blog friends ...
I hope you are all ok ... I have been keeping an eye on the news reports and see that there have been evacuations in some parts of New York and New Jersey due to the impending Hurricane  Irene 
Please know that you are in my thoughts and my prayers and I hope you will all be safe ...


This morning we had typical Bank Holiday weather ... Heavy rain Tomorrow in Liverpool  marks the start of the Matthew Street festival too ... Thousands of people flock here every year as the city plays host to many local bands and for the next few days the streets will be full and lively with music ...

 Thankfully blue skies are now starting to appear ...


I have a little something to share ... when I saw that my sweet talented blog friend Jacira is hosting the challenge at
 So Desafios blogspot 
" make a vintage project for the home" ... It gave me an opportunity not only to support my friend ... but to create something long overdue ... I have been so fortunate in having received many beautiful handcrafted cards and tags from lots of you since I started blogging .. I keep and cherish each and every one ... 




But where to keep them? 
Well I started with this box from the kitty food 



And with the help of some pretty My Minds Eye paper ... a few graphics from The Graphics Fairy and some embellishment ... It was transformed to this


The beautiful flower and tag came from Joanne ... 
... a closer look ...


A few pictures of the reverse side




That pretty grey organza was part of a huge piece given to me by a friend ... she had a bouquet of flowers wrapped in it ... maybe I will make some flowers from the vast amount I have left ...

And now my beautiful keepsakes have somewhere pretty to live and my Post Box it fits the challenge too

Please keep safe my friends and have a good day
Till soon
