My Rustic Heart

I am such a fan of 

She lives in the most darling
cottage by the sea
and I love every single thing she sets her mind to
making her cottage cute, full of personality and so so warm.
Her sweet cottage has been featured in several magazines...💘💘💘

Not long ago, she made the most darling
wire wreath with roses....

She grows her roses in her very own garden...
and dries them to perfection.!

Most of my blogging friends know that I have not one lick of 
creative talent...
 
I don't paint...
I don't draw...
why...I can't even sing or dance...
♥ ♥ ♥
....but I knew, the very minute I saw this sweet creation,
I just HAD to have one, too...
and no one was going to make it FOR me
so I HAD to do it myself. 

Now....before I show MY little first try,
keep in mind that I don't grow roses nor really know
HOW to dry them properly....

I have learned a little bit about the subject of drying flowers, tho...
Carol says to chose pinks and yellows....
they dry beautifully. 

and I know you hang them upside down in a dark place...
and I just learned by Google to use hair spray to keep them looking pretty.


I know...
I know...
the color of MY roses isn't nearly as pretty as her darker pinks...
(they aren't nearly as orange in real life...not sure what happened here)




 ...just look at the darling spot she hung her wreath...




it looks PERFECT on her pretty hutch.

SOOO...
she put the pressure on ME to find a cute place for my
little 
rustic heart !!









Since I am totally in love with my shuttered room screen,
I chose to try it there first...

  


OK...I love it here.....for now, anyway


It's funny how something so simple 
can be so much fun to make.....

I hope all of you will go by her sweet cottage
and, I promise, you will be inspired just as much as I am.

OOO....and would you tell her bj said hey ?
XOXOXO

  1. That’s a lot of don’ts for a gal I know to be a lot of do’s! And I bet you sing and dance, too. 😉 This creation is simply darling and I am sure that Carol would say so, too. I have never visited her cottage by the sea so off I go...

    3. When I found Dr. Olu I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr. Olu through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. Olu helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. Olu to anyone in need of help.

  3. I love Carol and her blog!!! You did a great job and YOU don't give yourself nearly enough credit for what you are able to do. You are a great copier of things you see and that is a talent in and of itself. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday- xo Diana

  4. I think your heart turned out absolutely lovely. The color of roses is wonderful also and I love where you have it hanging.

    I also love Carol's blog, she's been an inspiration to me for a couple of years now at least.

    Have a wonderful weekend ~ FlowerLady

  5. It's beautiful and I know you'll enjoy putting it different places in your home. Carol is amazing! She always has such style! Hugs, Diane

  6. it is beautiful and you have more talent in your little finger than many have in their whole body, your way with words, your talent in décor and style, your cooking talents, oh my gosh I could go on and on!!! Beautiful job!

  7. You just WOWd me! This is absolutly darling!!! I love it on the shuttered room screen. I was telling Nick about that screen yesterday. We saw where someone had thrown out some shuttered doors like these. I was tellling him what can be done with them. He still wouldnt let me have them. Ha.
    Your wreath is perfect!

  8. I think yours tuned out wonderful! What did you use for the wire?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Never compare!

    I love the way your heart turned out and I love the orange color. I have taken to purchasing pinkish orange roses because they dry to a beautiful color. As much as I love red roses, I don't like them as much in dried bouquets.

    I was looking at your last comment on my post and I was thinking about what a fun project it would be to make little Christmas wreaths with your grandchildren. I sometimes make them really small and use them as napkin rings.

    THANK YOU for the sweet shout out.

  10. Your heart wreath with roses is just beautiful. You did a great job. I will have to visit Carol's blog. Have a blessed and wonderful day. Madeline

  11. You silly girl! You are too very creative. As someone reminded me...your creativity shows in your home. You don't have to be an artist or painter to be creative. Now...what kind of wire did you and Carol use? I have dried roses that need some love.

  12. It is lovely your sweet wreath! Carol is amazing and such an inspiring blogger, but so are YOU!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Dear BJ, you are VERY talented and creative! Your blog designs and home decor pictures always delight me. You not only make pretty settings, but they are always "happy", cheerful. Don't you dare think you're not creative.

    As for your sweet rose wreath, it looks good on the shutter, but you know, it would look good anyplace you hang it. Some things are just like that!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I absolutely love it! You did a great job, it looks so pretty and could liven up quite a variety of places, but it looks great on your shutter.

    Do you mind if I copy. (-:

  15. BJ, Don’t shortchange yourself because you are talented in so many other ways. Your wreath turned out lovely and I love it on the shutter. Next thing you know, we’ll all be replicating yours and Carol’s wreath!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well BJ, I think you did a fine job with that heart and those roses. I am truly not crafty either and I would love to be. I rarely ever try things because I don't want to destroy my self esteem. LOL!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. BJ, You are now making me want one of those...so when I make one, I will post a picture of it. LOL I think yours looks great on the shutters. Carol does lots of cute things inside and outside her cottage. I love seeing it. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

    ReplyDelete
  18. It looks just beautiful BJ. You did a great job. I have known Carol since she started to blog. Oh my she has the most cozy and beautiful cottage by the sea and her artistic hubby and her have made that cottage so gorgeous with paintings and crafts.
    Happy Sunday.
    Hugs,
    Kris

  19. Your roses wreath turned out great! It's very charming where you placed it too.

  20. BJ I think you did a wonderful job drying those roses and wiring everything together. Kudos to you.

    God bless.

  21. The hair spray trick makes sense

    ReplyDelete
  22. Maybe you should make them to sell. Would keep your mind and hands occupied. I have used hair spray on some before. It does work for awhile. Think of you more than I tell you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love Carol and her cute, colorful, cozy cottage by the ocean. You did a wonderful job, I'm the one with 6 thumbs. Let us know how its made, I think others have also asked in the comment section.

    Have a great week, dear! :)

  24. As mentioned some rose colors look better friend than others.One thing, if the roses you want to dry have been in a vase with water you need to cut off the stems that were submerged in water. The trick to drying roses is to do so in small bunches upside down (to preserve their shape) in a dry dark room or closet. I used to dry roses and rosebuds for popourri, and hung mine to dry on hangers in a utility closet in the attic. Gather roses in small bunches with an elastic band to hold each bunch together and hang them upside down to dry.

  34. Dear Sweet BJ, the only thing wrong with your wreath is . . . . . . . Nothing! It is beautiful!!!
    Now, we don't want to hear about how you don't have any talent.
    Shall I make a list?
    • You are a marvelous decorator.
    • You throw fantastic parties.
    • Your cooking makes my mouth water.
    • Your flower garden and plants are amazing.
    • You have raised a warm and loving family.
    • You nurture and spread love to so many.
    • You’re a true prayer warrior and bless us all.
    • Oh, and did I mention that your cooking makes my mouth water, LOL.
    That's just a few of the things that you are great at.
    You are one very special lady.
    Love your wreath . . . it's so pretty.
    Connie :)

  35. Okay so I love your blog and Carol's and don't have a bit of talent. . .but this has made me want a wreath badly enough to go out and find some wire (maybe our hardware store in the village. Then I'll wait for the heatwave to pass and the roses to bloom. . .you get the picture! ;-) Maybe I'll just re-read this post a few times and pretend! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  36. I LOVE your wreath! The roses remind me of the roses in my wedding bouquet - they were one of my father's favorites and the same roses my sweetheart gave me in the first corsage he bought for me when he took me to a big dinner presentation. I may try to make a little wreath like yours and add some kind of daffodils (or yellow roses - my favorites) for my little vintage trailer. You always inspire me, dear friend.
