Family Chic, the blog home of Camilla Fabbri, is one of my new favorite online haunts. She is a woman after my own thrift-shopping, transforming, incessant small project, heart. Except she seems to be able to get her projects completed, where as mine tend to languish for months on end in my basement ”project” area. She is inspiring me to get it together and finish a few things.
Like perhaps these pretty valentines day projects. The simple vase cover, crafted from crumpled FT newspapers, quickly sewn together makes this easy grocery store collection of pink roses and tulips far more special that one of those huge (and I think a bit vulgar) long-stem-baby’s breath v-day bouquets.
I would be happy to receive this heartfelt message wouldn’t you? Happy Valentines day!!
Full instructions for each of these two DIY projects can be found at Camillas blog.
