Canines with Crowns

Oh, do I have the cutest post to share with all of you today! A bunch of my fellow Chapel Designer friends got together and came up with the idea to dress our furry friends with flowers. So fun to see the variety of dogs everyone has, and to see them all dressed up with flowers!

“Today was -40 with a wind chill haha, just had to add that. I loved this Challenge.
I desided that I wanted to try and use absolutely nothing but what was out in my yard. So this arrangement is held together by ice and snow alone. The container is made of ice. I am going to leave this arrangement out in the yard and hopefully the beautiful horror frost will attach itself one day and I can take pictures of that beautiful wonder of nature. Thanks again for pushing my imagination on this challenge.”

“These are some pictures of what my wife just completed for our own house. We did have a little advantage because all the product used was mostly grown on the farm. This is what we do for a living. We grow all kinds of branches for the Florists to use in their Christmas Urns.”
