Each Tuesday Misi, of Gable House Musings, chooses a theme and invites bloggers to play along with her "Tuesday Display Chain". This week, at Old Lady Morgan's request, we are sharing how we accent our displays with Springtime florals, picks and vines.
Now admittedly, I have not done much in the way of Spring decorating. And typically, I go with dried or fresh flowers from the garden and roadside. But as luck would have it, I picked up a few silks and artificial things at the end of the season last year. So, here goes...
~Aged cheesecloth and twine add a realistic touch to a bouquet of silk daffodils and white dogwood on the kitchen table. Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers. I was really quite taken with these...even the stems look real.~
~I've switched out a dark bonnet for a lighter one and added some "snowdrops" to the greens already in this wooden box. Instant Springtime!~
One of the things I found on clearance last year were these wonderful herb bundles. They look so real that I was amazed...the foliage is variegated and some leaves are even fuzzy-just like the real thing!
The faux herb bundles are fabulous for tucking in baskets, crocks or softening up a wood shelf or box.
~This little vine basket makes a perfect nest for my favorite spun cotton chicklet.~
~A pretty dogwood pick accents English Abbey transferware and a pair of dancing rabbits.~
~In the living room, silk forsythia and pussy willows surround gourd eggs nestle in a bed of natural flax.~
~A nest, a bowl and a chick, lend some color to a dark step-back cupboard.~
A hand carved jenny wren, makes it's home in an abandoned birds nest. The little ironstone pedestal bowl was a thrift store find.
~Sometimes simple is still best. Creamy white tulips from Trader Joes, displayed in an old graniteware pitcher.
And for our hostess Misi...a little vintage foo foo. The old basket has faded silk and paper flowers woven around the rim, and I collect these old plush bunnies. I'm not sure why I find them so sweet and endearing. But that's a collection for another day.
