Try It Tuesday~ A meaningful Flower Box!

Hi guys!
Glad you are here for Try It Tuesday~
I have a really neat re-purpose to show you~
I started out with this ~
My dad made this for the back of a choir chair at his church.
* I love that mom gave it to me. 
* I love that he made it with his own hands.
* I love that he designed this.
* I love that it was his original idea.
*I love that it was his.

* I love that he dated it and numbered it. So him!
I hope I did it justice~

* The front panel is painted with black paint then stenciled.
* I put six eggs in the nest, representing my six "loves".
* The two bird nests represent my two sons and their wives.
* The roses are from my hubby, over the years. 
 I dry them and save them for projects.
* There are three roses (dried) from my dad's funeral.
* The sticker says~ "All things grow with love"
* They really do!!!

Thanks for stopping by~
Try making it meaningful :)
I added metal feet by Graphic45 HERE.  Take alook, makes all the difference!
