How are we all today? Good I hope and managing to get plenty of crafting done?
I have something different to share with you today...it's not a card this time.
I've been altering this wooden thermometer that I've had in my stash for quite a while as a gift for a friend and as she's received it now then I can share.
It's meant to hang on the wall but I had to prop it up for the photo here so the lace trim should be hanging down and not flat on the table.
I painted it first with acrylic paint and then covered most of that up :/ with wood grain paper. Then I stamped a 'Kanban' rose stamp and adhered lots of 'Wild Orchid Craft' flowers and leaves along one side. I used this gorgeous Guipure lace along the roof line with the marvellous dark brown tassel trimming on top and then a layer of pearl lace trim from 'The Ribbon Girl'. I then repeated this layering along the bottom too. It was created to match the recipients colours and décor in their room.
Challenges I'd like to enter:

Crafting From The Heart - #81 ATG
