Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's Wednesday already and time for WOYWW 207!!
I was very lucky to have been offered a job at the beginning of the year with an Interior Design Company. This week we are busy getting a show home ready which great and I am learning so much. We had ordered loads of styling pieces but the client had purchased a glass dome and we needed something to go in it. I couldn't resist and volunteered straight away!
Yesterday I went to the florist's wholesalers to see what I could find. I had already got an idea and needed driftwood but I found that they don't stock that and there's no time for an online order.
Slight panic set in as the kids needed collecting from school and I needed a new idea fast!
I had a quick look around and grabbed a few possible options before dashing off into the school run traffic (always a good space to develop ideas as there's nothing else to think about!)
I decided to use an orchid stem and so needed to secure it to stand upright. I used oasis which I needed to hide so firstly I covered it in a lovely brown web-like ribbon I had found. I had also bought a beaded wire collar (designed to be used to make a posy) so I cut it apart and re-invented it to make cover my oasis.
The butterflies are stamped on old dictionary paper and the wire was sandwiched between then so they have dimension. I curled the wires using my Fiskars Curly Thing (technical term - LOL!) and arranged them in amongst my orchid stem.
I'm really pleased with it but this morning is the moment of truth. My boss gets here in 1/2 hour so we can head off to the house and finalise everything and so I have to hope she likes my creation ...
Have a great day everyone and happy snooping around everyone's desks. I'll be doing my fair share when I get home later on today!!
