White Milkglass


Remember this framed birdie picture from the '80's?  Home Interiors produced it; found this one for $1.00 at CC last year~~I used some pale aqua and brown paint to the frame~~

~~Noticed the hedges were starting to bud out a bit~~clipped some pieces for another floral~~painted some little peat pots and added one to this milkglass vase~~


Several of the junk shops seem to have an overstock of milkglass vases~~these are perfect for little spring florals at the shop~~I love to add a bit of whimsey to each one!



Baby silk crocuse peeking near the base~~and naturally dried white rose buds fill the peat pot~~


~~silk Forsythia in yellow~~and other white sprigs looks nice with the milkglass~~


~Seven little birds~~



Stencilled up some narrow old headers~~will look sweet on a shelf or above pictures~~







I'm off to the junk room today for more painting and projects~~

What do you think of using silks and naturals together?  Of course, nothing takes the place of a beautiful live bouquet~~but, I've come back around to silks and naturals for a more permanent/long-lasting display for each season~~

Love to hear your thoughts and comments!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
