"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any Poppers By!!!  Welcome to my little corner of Blogland that I deserted for a while.  How silly of me, I feel I have missed so much.  Life was very hectic and filled the time.  Live is even more hectic ... in a good way at the moment. 
I am so glad to be back and joining Erika over at:-
Erika started "Oldie for Friday"  way back when!!! a chance to show off your older Crafty projects.  I does not have to be Cards anything you have made in the past is what we want to see.
Here is mine:-

A Tissue Box Cover.
My friend Pearl asked me to make 2 of these for her mum who had gone into a Nursing Home.  Pearl wanted her Mum`s room to look nice.
I used a StampinUp set of Stamps "Stippled Blossom" (no longer available) to decorate.

I am still busy making things for my Fundraising Table. 
I will show you some of those next week.

Have a great day
Thank you so much for calling in I really do appreciate it.
I am trying to visit you all when I get a few minutes now and again
Till my next time here

  1. Well it may be a golden oldie, but it still looks great!
    Your fingers must be worn to the bone by now, you and Hazel work so hard for the Chemo charity , I hope all on your table sells out in record time , and the people appreciate all your beautiful makes xoxo.

  2. Morning Patricia, This 'oldie for Friday' is fabulous, with those beautiful images of Stippled Blossoms, I have loved every single project you have used this set of stamps on. I was lucky enough to get a set after seeing your first project with them, I was so impressed.
    I bet Pearl's Mum has loved having these in her room. How is Pearl doing now, I remember all the stress she had when her beautiful home was flooded and the effect it had on her when she moved back into her home. I hope everyone in that area are keeping OK especially with this new storm coming.
    Have a lovely weekend. We are having our annual Christmas Fayre at Church tomorrow, today will be getting everything down to the School (where the Fayre takes place), that will be after 4pm, then tomorrow from 8am we will be getting everything set up, it will be a long day but 'fingers crossed' it will be a good day.
    I hope your preparations for your Fundraising Table are going well.
    Have a good weekend and keep safe.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  3. Looks Patricia, much better than having the box on the table, xxx

  4. Whoo hoo, your back. Morning Patricia and thanks for joining me sharing an oldie today. I love your tissue box, a super idea and a lovely colour scheme too. I think it would have taken pride of place in the nursing home.
    Hope you haven't been too battered by the storm, I think the best is yet to come!

    Wrap up and stay in to craft!
    Hugs Erika. x

  5. Morning Patricia,

  6. What a lovely idea! I make things for the nursing home where my sister works. I must remember this; what a great idea for the residents!

  7. Good morning Patricia
    What a great idea I just love the stippled roses they look so good.
    Hope the sale goes well and you have a record sell out you really deserve to.
    Take care in this dreadful weather and have a great weekend.
