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.
