Wanna see what I did last night?

Thanks to Pam's article in Green Craft magazine (from the publisher's of Somerset Studio) I was so inspired to make my own coffee liner garland. I'm sure most, if not all of you, have heard of Pam Garrison by now, artist extraordinaire. She became somewhat obsessed with these garlands that were hanging in Anthropologie stores a few years ago and set about to create her own.
I have to admit it's not really something I would have thought up on my own (wish I were that creative!) These have such an ethereal quality to them, especially hanging on a window with light coming through....they're just lovely.
This was such a FUN project and a great way to use up the various supplies that a lot of us tend to hoard....vintage music books, ribbons, flowers, fabrics, etc. 
The skies the limit here as far as your own creativity goes, look around your space and see what you'd love to put on your garland...you could even put photos of your family on the ends, how cute would that be? Mine is currently hanging on my laundry room window, may stay there a while, may move....who knows?

Hi Gail!!! Ohhh, your garland is soooo pretty. I made one this February and blogged about it then too. I hung mine up in my bedroom above the bed, and hubby was very confused about it. He felt that it should have a purpose (as if...)and just sighed when I said it was just there because it was pretty and for no other reason.

Thanks for sharing your's!!
