Spotted: Children’s Book Floral Container

April 14, 2010

I’m excited to be spotting Dee from the blog Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House. Dee is a Traditional Mom.

Dee is all about her children and what is best for them.  I am sure that reading to her children is a special time for her and that she would encourage all parents to make this a priority.  Coming from the world of retail, Dee knows the power of merchandising to communicate a message.  This Poky Little Puppy container holds a vibrant mix of garden blooms that would look perfect in a home that values the beauty of nature, the importance of books, and the love of children.

I made the container by scanning an old copy of the classic Golden Book, The Poky Little Puppy, and sizing it to fit the container I was using – in this case a square vase.  I also scanned the side of the book and repeated that image a number of times to make it look like the flowers were arranged in the middle of a stack of books.  You could also scan a few different book covers and put them on each side of your vase/container.

Q&A with Dee from Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House

What is the greatest lesson your mom has taught you?

To be nice to everyone.  To give whatever you can to the less fortunate and to do/say things to make other people feel good.

What’s one lesson you hope to pass on to your children?

I want them to live life to the fullest.  To reach for the stars and know that they always have my love and support.

What’s your favorite Mother’s Day memory?

I would for sure say it was my first Mother’s Day.  I got all teary eyed just thinking of what it meant to really be a mother and how it felt to love someone else that much.
