MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!  I know there is still a few days till Christmas, but this is my last post till after Christmas day.  I hope you all have a safe and wonderful day with your loved ones.

So my shabby share with you all for today.  Yes !1 It is that time of the week again and everyone in The Shabby Tea Rooms have been madly creating for you all.  This week our theme was ~ A Few Of My Favourite Winter Things~ and were to create using buttons, silver, white and a snowflake.  This was our inspiration pic from Debbie.

 ......and this was my creative interpretation.  
 One of my favourite winter things is to snuggle up on the couch and have a few lovely scented candles burning around me whilst I watch a movie.   
 I have used many layers to create this - not that you can really see them all from these photos.  Istarted with a torn strip of cheese cloth as my base.  I pinned this to my candle.  I then glued some white lace and ribbon around the candle.  I added the beaded pearl trim and some silver ribbon.  For my flower centre I used a sizzix snowflake die and wet embossed it with some glitter and utee.

I added some organza ribbon bows in silver and white.  I attached a button to these with a few tiny stitches and then hot glued them to the candle. I added a white rosebud and two silver berries from a Christmas Berry Pick decoration.

I finished it off with three little Mother of Pearl buttons across the back of the candle.

That is all from me this week.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have all been popping into the Shabby Tea Rooms to say hi!! and to see what other wonderful creations the ladies have there for you to feast upon
Till next week remember to .....

  1. Oh My Goodness, This is so beautiful! The monochrome palette, layers & adorable buttons - simply divine!
    Quick question? Can the candle still be used or would the glue melt or ribbon burn? Either way, a wonderful winter centre piece.... Thank you for all you have shared with your different design teams & congrats on every one of your achievements! Least of all, your friendship, Kimi - you have been amazing. Blessings to you & your family (including of course, Jasper Wasper <3)!!!!! :))))
