|Harvest Sunflower Tray|
The warm homey colors of Fall are reflected in my autumn trays that I display around the house. My daughter, Bridget started us on the tray making journey. She saw them in a magazine and thought we could try to make some. My first was a tray of my Mother's - it is decorated with a collage of furnishings, lighting and pillows - in orange, yellow, green and ivory and has feet added to the bottom for stability. On top of the collage I place a piece of glass cut to the size of the tray. I use my trays with centerpieces, for serving company and even for my own enjoyment when I am having tea. I have trays painted "Va va voom", my living room color, and white winter trays done with Christmas cards for the collage and of course spring trays done in pink pastels. I have taught many classes on tray making and have thoroughly enjoyed sharing how to fabricate them.
