Fresh Eggs...Laid Daily!
Farm Fresh Kitchen Table Décor!
Two-tiered Thingy from "Pick Your Plum"
I am still working on ideas for decorating my house for summer around a Farm/Country Fair theme. I bought the two-tiered galvanized display thingy a few months ago, but it was hard to think of something fun to put in it. I didn't want to do fruit. Looking around my kitchen I found I had more than a few chickens and roosters...so I filled the bottom with some of my salt and pepper shakers. I didn't have the foresight to buy white Easter eggs on after-holiday clearance, so I painted some paper mache eggs with off-white gloss craft paint. I printed a Fresh Eggs sign and Wah-La!
Vintage Pot Holder Runner...
I've seen runners on Pinterest made from doilies and thought it would be fun to use vintage pot holders. But I didn't want to use my whole stash on one project...and I was getting lazy...so I sewed two red Wal-Mart place mats together and folded the ends to points. I laid out my pot holders to get a good balance and just basted them onto the runner.
Arrangement so far...kind of a work in progress.
I got the idea for putting flowers in some of my tins from Holly of Cutie Pie Cottage
That girl makes the cutest things for her darling home!!
This has been just a quickie post...I'm trying to get my blogging mojo back!
I am so thankful for all my Blogging Friends!
P.S. to Tammy...I think WWII Victory Garden banner pennants would be fun...and also fit in a country farm/fair theme...am I right?
