January Magazine Challenge

I am very excited to join in the party with Debbie for the first magazine challenge of 2012!
I had planned a furniture challenge but the weather has been sooooo rainy I was unable to complete the task and without photos of anything! Oh well, that will become a later challenge!

Oh what to do, what to do...something for valentines'...
Browsing through my copy of Southern Lady I found the perfect challenge...

Luckily I had already picked up roses at the grocery store.  I can't pass by the floral displays without grabbing a bunch!





I quickly gathered my supplies from items I already had on hand...






I did not have the cute little candles or cups that look like bark so I downloaded a free photo of wood, fibrous bark!  Then with the wonderful paper cutter I cut strips to wrap my candles!







 And here it is...
The magazine called Floral Turnover...

                                                                 (Kamin Williams)
And my copy cat...


I can imagine a grouping of these inverted glasses with roses on the table to celebrate Valentines', a bridesmaids luncheon, or anytime I need a quick, simple arrangement! It makes an 'oh so pretty focal point for any spot in your home.'

The original...

Oh yeah!! (HaPPy DAncE)  My copy with supplies I had on hand...


Now don't forget to drop by the party!!  Visit many and often! You will see old friends and make new ones!

See ya down the junkin' road!!

Love this! I don't get that magazine, so thank you for doing your copy cat. I am now inspired to create something like this too!

You did a great job. I am impressed that you had everything in the house already. xo

Judy said...

Yours look great....hard to tell the difference in the "real thing". I love a good copy cat challenge and/or makeover...my favorite thrifty thing to do. I've got to get a new printer so I can print off some of those "bark" images and cover some candles.

xoxo,
Judy

cathy@my1929charmer said...

Wow, you sure did good girl. I never knew you could download a copy of fibrous bark. I must be living in the dark age of something. You are one talented girl, and a sweet one on top of it. Thanks for sharing your inspiration at Sunday's Best Party!

Hi Jan! You left so many wonderful comments on my blog last week and I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated them...but I couldn't comment on your blog for days! I could see your blog fine, but when I clicked on comments, a blank white screen would come up! I am so happy that I was finally able to get to comment today. Did you know that your comments are set at 'no reply' so when you leave a comment on a blog, no one can reply directly to your comment unless they click through to your profile? I thougth I might mention it in case you didnt realize that this was the case. I had my comments set at 'no reply' until one of my readers told me about it too! I came here to visit you and I couldn't leave a comment and I didn't see a 'contact me' place either, and I felt so sad that I couldn't tell you how much I enjoyed reading your comments! I love your magazine challenge...it is so beautiful and you did a brilliant job! I hope your week is going great Jan! Angie xo
