Altered Container

Hello ... 
I hope you are well and having a good start to the week ...
My cold is easing and I'm feeling much better now ... Thanks ever so much for your kind wishes... It really cheers me up reading your comments.

It's a new challenge at City Crafter today and I am hosting this week ...

I saw this beautiful photo on Tumblr


... those prettily decorated buckets really speak to my heart ...

So the challenge this week is to Make or Decorate a Container
 It can be anything from a paper bag to a bucket!

I had a rather tatty looking container that I usually keep my fresh herbs in ... sorry that the photo is blurred but this is just to show you the "Before"


It was calling out for some attention ...


I know these are not herbs ... Lol! they're just for decoration


I used some images from The Graphics Fairy for this and printed them on Decal Paper


... and of course I had to use some artificial lavender 


This look so much prettier on my windowsill now

Our Guest Designer this week is the lovely and very talented Milagros - our winner from week 178 ... hop over to her blog and be inspired! 

We are offering a GD spot to this weeks' winner too ... so get crafty and come join us ...

Here's the link to the CCCB blog so you can check out all the creations from the team

Thanks so much for your visit ... Enjoy the rest of your week

Till soon

That is a beautiful job you done with that caddy, I just bought 2 at the thrift store last week, can't wait to give them a make over too!

OOO Ros!! I love this.... You nailed it... so sweet ...and I love the challenge too...! I might find some time to play along.... hugs...x

Beautifully done...I love the gorgeous color and the bit of lavender tied on....I wish I had a windowsill to set something on. I grow lavender and right now it is looking (or was) so pretty, until the cold kills it, we had snow last night, so I imagine it is done for today..sigh!! Anyways, I love what you did with it, and you are so good with those transfers!!
