Here is my little thrift store cloche again. This time, instead of lemons & limes, I added faux eggs.
I also changed plates from my red rooster one to this bird plate & backed it with a periwinkle Fiesta plate.
Changed out this corner, too. Took some of my egg stems (from Michael's sale last week) & just added them to this small apothecary jar. The other jar has some tea bags with cinnamon sticks mixed in. Here's the little nested bunny that was residing on the white buffet until last week.
I don't think I've ever shown a closeup of this plate. I love everything about this.
Now on to the living room. This is how I had my sofa side-table a couple of hours ago. It's okay, but not making me jump for joy, ya' know? I know some of you would be in favor of removing the tissue box, but I NEED my tissues close at hand, so it stays!
I really like this print. Becky Higgins, a good bloggy friend, made this available for anyone to copy who found it appealing & I did. It's a simple collage of fabulous doors that she photographed when they were visiting in Estonia.
I really love the colors & the shape of this pitcher which I bought on sale at Kirklands over a year ago. I'm a real candle-nut & love having a candle burning when I'm sitting & relaxing at night.
Anyway, back to my not being thrilled with how this was looking which took me on an excursion to my decor closet. I've had this tealight holder for years & the colors are similar to the Kirkland's pitcher. The wheels were starting to spin.
Then I spotted these little mini-vases that I bought at a swap meet 6 for a $1.00. They are nothing special, but I have used them so much, usually when I'm trying to stretch the life out of a real floral arrangement & there are just one or two flowers still salvageable.
So this is what I did. I used a tiny drop of hot glue so they couldn't be accidentally knocked over by the little "fuzzy snoop" in this house. I then foraged through what's left of my pitiful supply of faux florals & found just the right size. I liked adding a bit more turquoise to this vignette. I also used an easel to raise the "Doors" print a bit higher.
My "oh, so thrifty" tweak! What do ya' think? Be kind, please!
That wraps it up for now. Thanks a bunch for stopping by and please come again soon.
