…I’ve been spending quality time sorting through things, organizing, putting things away, cleaning, PURGING. ~long overdue~
Years ago- I bought some pink hyacinths and transplanted them into a decorative container. SO beautiful, fragrant, & thoroughly enjoyed!
When they “died” I cut off the stalks, but left the soil and “roots” in the container (laziness) and just stashed it all away. 5‘ish years a g o…???
Yesterday’s sorting adventures uncovered this surprise—
In a box for how long?
NO LIGHT. NO WATER. HuH?
I only figured out what was budding because I happened to leave the tag too!
I’d completely forgotten about this container. It was something I found in a thrift store that had a gaudy-garish green & white glaze. No surprise—I painted it. I’ve been learning and using a variety of decorative and distressing techniques for (I almost hate to admit) 25 / 30 years now!
What I do remember about this project was that it was around 2000 and I was trying to learn “distressing with Vaseline.” I bought several items to learn on, then sell, but I loved the face on this and kept it!
I get the biggest giggle when I come across folks sharing these “new” techniques!
