Was outside spray-painting some projects: and had this whim to try lightly misting some dried hydrangeas with just a bit of white paint. This little cluster turned out pretty. Just barely let the spray paint fall on the petals. I love the "frosted" look of it.
Did I tell you I like to dry flowers/herbs from the garden? And roses~~they look beautiful in apothecary jars; baskets, etc. Yellow and white roses will dry and look "aged and vintage"; pretty for your vignettes! I love to place them in white bowls/platters with candles too. Don't pitch those roses too soon!
Twine the stems; hang upside down to dry.
Here's some of my weekly JUNK FINDS!
Got all three on the cheap; will not be selling the reticulated brown floral tray; WHY you may ask?--well, it has nothing to do with the fact that it is paint chippy/well worn: it is because I love the muted creams/tans/browns and I LOVE the chippy-ness of it.
So it will be in my china cabinet with my white ironstone collection. Romantically shabby!
I bought this pedestal, old silver/tarnished tray for $2.50 at Salvation Army. It's heavy! Perfect for candles and other displays. Love the grape-cluster relief pattern on it.
Got to get started on my projects--but, first going to see what you posted today! Have a great weekend.
