I am like a month late getting my spring posts up………….but better late than never right?
On the entry table I still had my Valentine’s Day flowers out……and let’s just say they were looking a little
dead sad. I however still loved the color. So I got out the scissors and……….
I felt a little like Morticia!
It looked like this for a moment, but I couldn’t find the plate that I wanted to put on the plate stand and the little statue wasn’t doing it for me. So this is how it looks now.
I added a medallion that I made last year and added it to my wreath that is made out of coffee filters.
I used vintage sheet music, scrapbook paper and an image from the Graphic's Fairy!
My roses, the flowers that my daughter Miss A received after a singing competition, thrifted vintage milk glass, a vintage picture from my living room previously from a garage sale, the window I found on the side of the road and a thrifted egg.
To the right of that is my bird cage from the salvation army and the sweet little angel my son made for me at Christmas time, I can not pack it away it is much to sweet! A couple of vintage clocks from my collection a bird I got from my kid’s school rummage sale (I think that it may be a Christmas ornament), I made the book bird house and the flowers were from the Salvation Army they are actually a bride’s bouquet (the kind that they toss!).
This vintage paper mache rabbit was actually my mom’s when she was a kid. I love it even though Miss T who is five says “it gives me the creeps!” and “Keep your creepy rabbit with the red eyes away from me!!!
Lastly I hung the vintage Italian tole sconce that my husband and I picked up a couple of weeks ago at an auction. It was all of $5 and is so fitting for spring!
So what do you think? Better late than never?
