When I was a little girl, I would pick weeds, (I thought they were flowers), all clinched in my fist, I would give them to my mother, in a vase the little weeds would live, until.. It made me feel good inside. As an adult, I still pick weeds, by picking ugly or castoff item's and creating something nice and useful. It still makes me feel good inside.
I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL
I promised to show updated photos of my mantel and table setting.
I used bed springs and made ornaments for place settings, I printed some of the Graphics Fairy's Madonna and Jesus prints on sheet music for place mats, only on top of the plates. The silverware and glasses will be in another location, until we are ready to eat. The plates are all mismatched and all white. The centerpiece is an outdoor trellis wrapped with silver twig garland.
This guy I found at Goodwill a few months ago and I deco-podged with an old Shakespeare book and music paper, then blinged him up.
A side view of my updated mantel. I added the aluminum branches and the mercury glass, and decorated the little lights.
Just decorated an atrium.
Hope you like!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
