New Tag To Go With The Dorothy Wreath

Happy Labor Day, Girls! Hope you have the day off!
You may remember that I made this Dorothy wreath for Twyla and Lindsey's Wizard of Oz Gala. I thought Twyla would like it so I actually made it with her in mind and sent it off to her. I wanted a tag to match, so I made this. It's sort of odd with just that one little White pom pom but for some reason I still liked it that way.

I'm loving making tags! I made a cute strawberry one recently too but I sent it off to Elizabeth with my 5x5 block before I remembered to take a picture of it!

My husband, Bobby *does not* have to have a total shoulder replacement! Yay, God! BUT, he *does* have to have the tear in his shoulder repaired surgically. (I'm just trying to figure out why it took them over a month to figure this out.) Anyway, he will have surgery this Friday and then be off work for 4 MORE MONTHS! It should be interesting! And it might mean that I'll have to take another little blogging break the first couple weeks after surgery since he won't be able to do much and will want to be on the computer- but then again, he might sleep a lot. I don't know what to expect!
I'm planning on making a girls escape cave. ☺ Have a lovely day! ♥

We're off today but a rainy day is forecasted...boo! Well good thing we weren't planning a grill out or anything...LOL!

Hope all goes well with your Bobby and that you don't have to retreat to your girl cave too often! ;D

I think your tag is perfect with the one little pom pom. So pretty!

Hope all goes well with Bobby. That is a long time to be off work. My hubby would be climbing the walls! :)

Geez Louise! A month? But that seem like the norm...my sister sliced the top of her foot (domed cake plate accident..nothing like that would EVER happen to Martha Stewart! ;) but she went to the ER and they stitched her up and sent her home. She kept thinking that her big toe looked odd...well they never noticed that her tendon had actually rolled up into her ankle...lovely.
Hang tough! Into every life some surgery must fall. Just think of all the things you'll create in your "Girl Cave"!! ;)

Holly, I loved the tag so much that I tied it to the wreath. It looks so pretty. Thank you so much for your thoughtful and pretty gifts. Best wishes to Bobby on his surgury. We will miss you while you are taking a break, but I understand you'll be taking care of your honey. Have a great day! Twyla

Hey Sweet Lady. I am off today and able to go and visit a few of my favorite blogs this morning. I wanted to pop over and say hi. I am so glad I did. I so love this wreath and ofcourse the tag is absolutely beautiful. You did an amazing job. I love the simplicity of just one pompom. That was just the right touch. Thanks so much for sharing. Sorry to hear your hubby is going to have surgery. I tore my right rotator cuff, and had to have surgery. It was awful. I couldn't even bring my hand up to my mouth for sometime to even brush my teeth. I had to learn to use my left hand for everything. It was a BIG adjustment. Hopefully he will sleep a little and you will still be able to blog. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

I love your wreath and tag! I think the tag is perfect with the little pom pom flower! I sure send my prayers to your hubby~ouch surgery is no fun. Hope he recovers quickly.
How are you,my Sweet? Happy Labor Day and hope it's cooling down over there.

Hi, Holly,
Love that tag! Blue and white checks with ric rac and a pom pom, can't get much better than that. I am glad the doctors figured out your husband's problem. I will be remembering you all in prayers. Vicki

With my blog title you know I love this wreath!! I hope your husband's surgery goes well and I will say a little prayer for you too--having them at home that long can be a challenge :)

Hey Holly!
You are so sweet...Twyla is gonna love her treasures that you made...the little tag is adorable too! Perfect with the wreath....I have always loved gingham anything! It's just so cute!

I pray that Bobby's surgery will go well. That is great news that he won't need a full replacement of his shoulder. I know he will need you to help him for a while though. I'll miss you while you are on your blogging break, I'll be checking in on you still though. I hope you have a great night!
Big Hugs,

The tag is so beautiful and really matches well. I love making tags too.

Well dear heart, we have life in common. I love to make tags too...I suppose I should share some on my blog one day for folks to take a peek. We also have husbands shoulders in common. Mine has a bad torn muscle he's battling right now on light duty at work. Keep smiling and keep your heart light!
