Burnished Bronze & Gold (Tree 12)... Home Decor...

Hey everyone.  I am ALL DONE with all the Florals for the Vacation Home!  WHEW!  Im updating this afternoon to share a story.  I have been thinking on this all afternoon and feel I need to Post...Its VERY SAD story, but I have made SO MANY friends here I feel I can share and am doing so because I care about yall!!   We need to ALL take care of ourselves this time of year...as women we try to "Do it ALL"!  My daughter has a little friend from school named Ella...she was actually at our house a couple of weeks ago for the Slumber Party.   Ellas Mom got sick Monday of this week and had to be HOSPITALIZED...yesterday morning they did not expect her to make it...She Died yesterday afternoon.  When i asked what happened, I was SHOCKED!  She had come down with a SINUS INFECTION and it got into her brain and killed her.  She was my age and in good health.  Im sharing this because I have been sick and talked to several of yall that are sick too.  PLEASE, take time out to rest and take care of Ourselves.  I am also asking for prayers for Ella and her family.

TGIF!  Right? 
Enter Custom Floral GIVEAWAY!!!

Im still trying to get well AND I have 4 more Custom Florals to finish this morning for that AMAZING Vacation Home..SO..Hate to abandon you all without walking through the Home Decor with you...BUT...When this client asks me to JUMP...I say "Yes Maam and How High..And, can I get you anything on the way back down?!"  Im sure you all understand!!!  :)
So, that said...here is todays post, MINUS my captions...  :(   SO SORRY, but im off to my Design Studio to BANG OUT some florals!  I LOVE all of you sweet ladies and friends...but I have to "Peace Out"

I'm a little dense at times and finally grasped from the big vacation house that you are putting all the trees up for others. Okay, I know, don't ask what I was thinking. Obviously I wasn't thinking AT ALL!!! This tree is so rich looking and gorgeous! Good luck with the florals!!

Gorgeous as always! Good luck today!

I hope you have a banger of a day designing away- we can ooh and awe ok on our own. Love everything here! Where do you find all these things- I live in a very rural area and we have Walmart, Dollar General and the Dollar Tree.
If you want an hour trip- you can find a Hobby Lobby and a Michael's. I don't think they have anything like what you have posted on here.
You need to start you own chain of stores- where you pick what goes in them- like all of this cool stuff!
Happy Weekend!

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about Ella's mom...how awful! My heart aches for Ella!! Let me know if there is anything I can do for Ella.

First off- I am saddened about Ella's Mom...she certainly had something going much deeper than a regular sinus infection. That poor, poor child...your daughter's age and now her Mom is gone. She will probably hardly remember her.

Your bronze and gold trees and decorations are lovely. Hope you didn't burn too many fingers today...a glue gun with THAT much glue on it has seen its share of burns!

Hope your Friday night is a relaxing one! Hugs-Diana

Denise said...

That is so shocking about Ella's Mom, I can only imagine it was something more than a sinus infection. I will be praying for her family.
Love the tree/decor, I wish it could inspire me but my stuff is all up now. I was just taking photos so I'll be able to share some this weekend.
Have a great weekend gal, take it easy until you're fully better too (of course you won't if you're busy doing a ton of stuff for your client) ;)
Come on over for a cocktail when you're done. What shall we have tonight?

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

So sorry about Ella's Mom! That kind of sudden death is so hard to understand.
Your work and these trees are gorgeous!

Liz said...

So pretty! You do such a lovely job on these trees! Each one is beautiful!

Thanks for the reminder about our limited time here on this planet. It shouldn't always be assumed!

Liz said...

I am so sorry to hear about Ella's mom. I will keep her entire family in my thoughts and prayers, how very sad. The story scared me because I've been fighting a sinus infection for awhile now...it just doesn't want to go away. Thank you for sharing the story with us. ((HUGS))

The gold and bronze tree is GORGEOUS!!Your work is beyond fabulous. I envy you, as I would love to have your job. It must be so fun and invigorating to create such beautiful things and have your clients so happy and pleased with your work. You are one talented girl!! Thanks for sharing! XOXO ~Liz

Melissa Miller said...

Kara that is awful and so sad. I can't imagine what they are going through. My prayers are with them. I am trying hard to heal my throat, sinus and ear infection right now. I've started antbiotics and still feel pretty crummy. I understand what you mean about taking care of ourselves at this hectic time of year.

Your tree is stunning! I do love bronze.

Becca said...

So, so sorry to hear about Ella's mom. I can't even begin to understand how a sinus infection could lead to death ... that is so scary. I'll keep Ella and her family in my thoughts and prayers!

As for your amazing tree that I've already drooled over ... it's incredible! Seriously! I love all of the gold embellishments ... the candles and the reindeer! The tree is so lush and elegant. I have tree envy fo' sho'! Can't wait to see more of your work. Hugs, Becca

Linda said...

Sorry Kara, to hear such tragic news about Ella's Mom. You never know what life brings sometimes. We all need to take care of ourselves. That includes you Kara! Life is precious. You are working so hard on Christmas. Your work is beautiful and so creative. Rest up! XO Linda

Liz@http://infusewithliz.blogspot.com/ said...

Wow, I can't imagine how bad their family is feeling...what a sad sad thing to happen.
I stopped in to see what new beautiful postings you have and of course there is another gorgeous display. I just completed my tree, and while I'm happy with it, it certainly isn't as designer looking as these trees you have put together! So you've shared all these magnificent trees are you going to show us the tree you do for yourself? :)

I used to have sinus infections regularly and a doctor told me once to take all the medicine because it was awfully close to my brain, so yes I think a sinus infection can get very serious. I am so sorry to hear about Ella's mom. I too will keep this family in my prayers.

I hope you are getting well.

I grabbed your blog button, so happy I found you. I hope to be in Lubbock soon, I would love to come see you in your store if you don't mind would you let me know where you are located? my email is jerriann28 @ hotmail

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

*huge hug*

Michaela said...

Oh my word! This breaks my heart. I'll be praying for Ella and her sweet family that they can reply on the Lord and rest in His hope of everlasting life in Heaven with Him. I pray with all that I have that she was a Christ follower!

Your decor is beautiful. The sparkles and glitter make me smile (:
