Since making the first two flowerpots (HERE), I've tried a few more
and I recently made one for Robynn (our daughter) for her birthday.

The story behind this Jade plant is....

When Dan & Robynn's mom were still together, they had started a little jade plant
from a leaf they obtained...somewhere.
Her mom still has the plant, I believe, because her brother started one from it.
He gave us a small plant from that plant and Robynn really wanted one because it
reminded her of her childhood...you know...just one of those inanimate objects that remind you of the old memories you cherish?

So, we decided to give her the plant her brother gave us and we kept a wee piece of it to try
and grow another one.

And, my idea was to combine her memory of the plant with a pretty pot.
(Whitechurch Road was where she lived when she was young)

I really like how this pot turned out.
Laurie from Heaven's Walk gave me some pointers after I made my first ones
and I tried them....she said to let the
clay part show through more to make them look more aged and they do!
Big thanks to Laurie for helping me in my frustration!
Also, I used the house graphic from The Graphics Fairy, and it chipped off a
wee bit in the transfer process after mod podging, but I LOVE IT chipped up like that!
It just adds to the look I think!

It looks so great, Wendy!

Thanks for your supportive comment on my blog. I think I have checked every purse, suitcase, nook and cranny. Well, I need an new one anyway since it is in my maiden name. I called Disney and they said I can use my DL and birth certificate so I'm having that over-nighted from Utah to Florida. Ha! Crazy day.
