Something I Whipped Up a Few Days Ago!

I was just messing around the other day and thought about how I could do something I saw and how hard it would be. I thought I'd do it on a small scale though. Let's take a peek at what's going on. Hmmmmmm, can you guess what it might be?

And yes, those are roses Love Bunny just snipped from our rose garden this morning. BTW, this post is scheduled ahead of time as most of my posts are. It's rare that I'd do one the same day. I like the freedom of preparing ahead of time and going back and looking at them again and again. [By the way, I checked and found that there isn't a word such as preschedule in my Merriam New World Dictionary or the online dictionary Merrian-Webster or my dictionary widget on my iMac Dashboard, so in following my own advice I'll either use something else or make up a "blogger" word: preschedule. I choose to use it as a new addition to the blogger world. I could say preparing ahead of time as I did above, but it takes a lot more room to say that. Forgive me, but I had to let you know I'm not ignorant of words. ;-)] Also, I composed this post on 6/22/2010.

Stop looking at the rose, chicks, look at the "other stuff" in the photo!

Is it taking shape in your mind yet or did you know from the first photo what it was?

VoilĂ , it's a froufrou-ed umbrella! Oh, it's a small one but just as cute as a regular size one. I may do a large one but I'll definitely do it differently. First of all, I'll make a pattern. It was definitely a pain in the tush to just guess and then snip the fabric.

I wanted to collapse it but since I wrapped ribbon around the handle I couldn't do it to show you. Hmmph, that ribbon just might come off!

Okay, I couldn't stand not collapsing it and showing you how cute it is, so here is after I removed the ribbon.

Of course, I had to ask Love Bunny to go get me some roses, but no matter; he did it. Aren't they lovely?

The big pale pinkish one on the left has the most delicious scent. Actually, they all smell wonderful but the scent is very different on each one. I love the variety of fragrances on each one though.
