I don’t remember when or how I first discovered Julia’s Stampin Ground blog, but from the moment I first read about her What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday Challenge, I became hooked. Since January, I have been participating in this challenge, and today, I’m delighted to wish Julia and my friends a Happy 1st Anniversary, and unveil the very special project I created in honor of the occasion – a beautiful altered mailbox!
The original mailbox first made an appearance on my second WOYWW post back in January – I purchased it at a Michael’s Dollar Day Sale for a buck or two!
Now, it looks like a treasure you might uncover it a vintage boutique!
When I first purchased this mailbox, I knew I wanted to alter this with “a touch of spring” in mind, so I chose the pretty soft colors scheme and the floral and butterfly embellishments with that in mind.
I incorporated lots of lace along with my favorite image from the Altered Pages Little Lassie Collage Sheet I recently featured to add a nostalgic touch. I love collage so I incorporated that into the mailbox as well.
I am sharing my project with my friends at the following challenge sites:
- Sunday Stamper Week 105 – Wings Of Dove
- Ooh-La-La Challenge 55 – Inspiration: Use The Colors Of The Challenge Blog
- ABC Challenge Blog – V Is For Vintage
- Inspiration Avenue Team Weekly Challenge – How Does Your Garden Grow?
- DIY Living Showcase (DIY Home)
- The Weekend Wrap-Up at It’s So Cheri
Thanks Julia, for bringing us all together – here’s looking forward to another fabulous year!
