Bling on a box

 The temperature hits 24 today so I guess it's time to put away my boots .My feet are quite ugly and I hate sandal season but it has to be done. I was very patient yesterday and gave myself a pedicure then I watched a very old episode of Midsomer Murders until the varnish had dried.I carried on with my legs and they are now exfoliated and smooth ready for some fake tan ( much to my husbands horror).



I had quite a girly day in all and covered this box with flowers , lace ,buttons and lots of bling .This little box hold the spare needles for my sewing machine. The glue gun was out in full force for this one.
My pampering continues today with a trip to the hairdresser for a little beautyfying. I'm not usually so self indulgent but last week was horrid -a trip to the dentist -lots of drilling for crown preparation ,an injection in my foot for an inflamed tendon (too much exercise is bad) and finally a trip to the cancer specialist about a lump on my back which is cancerous and will be removed next week ,I'm hoping it hasn't spread.



On the plus side I won prizes from Tuesday Morning Sketches , Southern Girls and top three at Incy Wincy.

Crafting with Dragonflies - challenge 14 - Make your own flowers - I hand cut 12 petal shapes for each flower and inked the ends. Some are on plain white card and others on swiss dots card.
Creative Craft Cottage - challenge 9 - Say it with Flowers
All Crafts challenge  -Anything but a card -A little box with recycled curtain lace ,shirt buttons ,old pearls from a necklace and lots of other bits.

Love your box with those ever so pretty flowers and BLING. Looks fabulous. So nice when we can spend a little time on ourselves and be pampered. It never happened when we were younger - money all went elsewhere. Hope all goes well with the lump being removed. Thanks so much for he lovely little story and for entering our challenge this week over at Crafting with Dragonflies. Hope to see you again. Ina.

Hi Gail. Lovely box. Thank you for your comments on my blog. I can sympathise with you about the dentist. I have had two crowns, one last year and one this year. Spent this morning at the dentist for other work. I hope the cancer hasn't spread. I am a cancer survivor.
