What's in the Box?

We don't do auctions very often....
but recently we went to one and got a
"bonus box"
with some of the things we bid on.

When we got back we stashed it in a corner...
but the other day we remembered it and opened it up
and found this....

and more of this....

Vintage thread and some beautiful tatting
someone had made.

Well, we needed to do something with that tatting

So we took it, and some of the thread

and strung the thread through the tatting

Then we tied it around a
blue mason jar

Then added water
and some gorgeous coneflowers....

Oh so pretty!

What a bonus and the little dress for the jar is perfect.

About anything to do with an auction is pretty great and you definitely got a bonus here. I would still probably be trying to figure out what to do with the tatting. Very clever on your part and the coneflowers are so pretty!!!

I know the jar is happy with it's new attire!
