Hi again Erin, I just saw your doily bowl post. Wow! You were certainly inspired! I can't believe you just used regular school glue and didn't even water it down? I have a doily somewhere that actually turned out more like a bowl than a doily so I need to try this process. I just gotta find where I put it first. Thanks for sharing! Best wishes, Tammy

Such beautiful photos. They reminded me of the dogwood tree that was at my childhood home. It bloomed in light pink petals, that I would collect when they fell on the ground. Thanks for that memory.... Have a great week.

Beautiful!! I love dogwoods and they are blooming everywhere. I was driving in the countryside today and the dogwoods were just gorgeous! I especially love the pink ones.

Better late than never; I am so late, but never disappointed, for your photos give me such pleasure my friend. Enjoy the dogwoods...I so miss them from the Boston area! Blessings, Anita

My fondest memory of living in Tennessee was Springtime, especially the dogwoods and redbuds blooming beneath the canopy of trees. So incredibly gorgeous. Thanks for reminding me of that. ;-)

Taking my breath away as usual. We are just starting to see a few daffodils now but no dogwoods.
I'm not complaining....last yr the daffs went by too fast.
