Hey my friends!
I've been in the clean-out and organize mood.
My goal during this month is to live with ONLY what I LOVE.
(In addition to my family :)
spring winter cleaning sparked some fresh ideas.
I wanted to show you how I've used old things, (and some new ones, too)
to create a fresh, organized space.
And a tablescape, too.
(I used Photobucket to add a little texture to the photo above.)
I got some wonderful things from Laurie Anna's in Canton.
Put old with new, and I created this tablescape.
New burlap ribbon.
I used some of the winter cabbage from our garden.
It's growing like crazy right now.
I've never used a texture with my photos, but it gives a really neat look:
Some vintage clay pots hold the cabbage on the centerpiece.
The natural burlap drawstring bags I already had,
are used as the placemats.
The small dishes also came from Laurie Anna's last year.
My old bed-springs are used to hold sprigs of lavender.
The fluffy white hydrangeas came from Michael's, 50% off!
I love to use jars for storing dry goods.
And I wrapped some tapers in burlap ribbon to dress it up a bit.
I decided to display my pewter crosses.
I recieved a nice collection from many students when I taught Kindergarten.
Renewing rooms with fresh ideas.
What have you been creating this new year?
