Apple Box Part Two!

Good morning and Happy Memorial Day to all of you! 
 I shared with you how I created these satin flowers in my post HERE.  I have a second take on my apple box using these flowers.  This box I painted in a pale eggshell blue.  I spread glossy accents across the top and sprinkled it with Martha Stewart glitter.  
The flowers were actually made from my MIL's old slip.  Yep.  It was my first attempt at these flowers before I shopped for more satin. ;)  It worked beautifully! I added some black floss to the centers as well as a rhinestone.  
I added some Prima velvet leaves and cream "branches." 
I added this little light bulb from Junkyard findings.  I love layering my items into a cluster.  :) 
I am off to spend the afternoon organizing and cleaning my basement.  It is kind of a rainy, gloomy day here, perfect for cleaning! 
 We are stopping to have homemade BBQ ribs made from Dr. Pepper.  
Have a great day my friends!
