Thank you so much for all your kind comments about my little corner bed makeover! I’m still working outside but we had a bit of a rainy afternoon on Tuesday so I came inside and changed out the vignette on the dresser in my dining room (should have cleaned the house instead but just didn’t feel like it).
It’s a change for me. I’m usually into color – red, apple green, black, yellow – but I wanted to try something new.
I put this together from things I had in the house. I really, really love it!
I made a ruffle for my decoupaged candles with two coffee filters. I cut the ends off to make them shorter and stuffed them into the candle holder at the same time as the candle.
This apothecary jar has some dried Hydrangeas I saved from cleaning up the yard this week. I usually leave them on the bushes for some winter interest and then snip them off in the spring.
These are just scrapbook papers I rolled up and tied with something pretty.
I made this lace flower from that lace I got at Goodwill a few weeks back. The brooch is also from Goodwill.
I’m using one of the plate stands that I got at Goodwill. It's perfect for a holding a platter.
The cups and butter pats are from Goodwill too. I guess my house would be pretty empty if I didn’t have a Goodwill! Maybe I should have titled this post “Decorating with Goodwill Finds”!
I draped one of my toile table runners on top of the chest. The candles need some extra height. So as you can see I lifted them up by putting a small plate on top of an upside down cup.
Well, it’s back outside for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
