#1) Altho’ I was so excited to learn Michaels Craft Store carried mini bales of hay… It just isn’t the same as the real thing! My hunka-hunka-husband drove to somewhere in the country and got me the real deal for my new sample. The designer said my strands of hay needed to be longer with fewer of them. She was right. Many of you also gave me the same suggestion! You are all so smart!
#3) The designer also asked me to try one last sample with the straw, with the wall color and with a glaze. I actually used a stain on it instead of a glaze and I think it is LOVELY. This is where I say “oooohhhh -aaaaahhhhh” …..
I am giving the samples back to the designer tomorrow. Wish me luck!
