Giant paper flowers

I think every one has seen these giant paper flowers from Design Sponge as well as other equally beautiful giant paper flowers.

Well last weekend I attempted to recreate this project at a bit smaller scale…but huge none the less.

What a beautiful way to welcome the Spring. Wouldn’t you just smile every time you came home?

I finished late at night and hung it over my Ikea lamp.

This was a super fun and quick project…and the possibilities are infinite! I simply followed the instructions on Design Sponge and made a couple changes since I wasn’t making a stem. I used the glue gun to glue the layers of petals together and then glued the finished flower on to a square piece of cardboard  which I had already attached ribbon to and… TAa DAaa!!!

Try your hand at this, you can make it any size, any color and style…get creative. Hang them with signs, attach them to the wall…attach them to your cat  O_o  …ok…maybe that’s a bad idea…but he would look cute!! 🙂

Whatever you do, have fun!

Brass love

Remember that Etsy shop I wrote about on a previous post, The White Pepper? I was so excited about their wonderful thrift items, especially these.
Well…

Yes! I got them! They look so beautiful and I am so glad I went for it.


They look beautiful next to my flowers 🙂

 

Don’t you love them? They feel heavy, have the perfectly aged color tone and look absolutely stunning on that wooden table by the front door entrance. I hope you guys checked out the store because they have new items that are just as amazing…which reminds me I have to do a new Cool Shop Friday post soon. But until then…

Live life in full bloom!

Color lesson

I went to the mall this weekend and it only proved what I was suspecting…COLOR IS IN, people!!! So, this inspired me to do a little color research. Many thanks to the Krylon website for the info. I plan on having fun with color this spring season so I’ll be purchasing lots of spray paint 🙂

Here is some basic color info I’ve put together…I hope you learn and enjoy!

Have a wonderful weekend lovies.

Ciao!

Colors we love…

Lately I’ve been obsessing with bold bright colors and one of my favorite combinations is red and purple. These colors have been paired up since the beginning of time and for good reason. The colors compliment each other in a way that exalts bold, royal and elegant qualities better appreciated in the pairing of the colors. Throw a little gold in the mix and this just got very chic. Pair red and purple with orange and you’ve got a classic color-blocking favorite combo. You can make this combination playful, elegant and classic. The possibilities are as infinite as your imagination.

I hope these inspired you to bring some bright bold colors into your life.

Happy Saturday! It’s going to be a beautiful day.

Cool shop Friday…The White Pepper

Everyone knows Etsy is the go-to online mall for all things vintage and unique. Just recently I found this amazing vintage shop: The White Pepper – Mid-Century and Groovy Vintage Goodies. The owner is Christina, a former Montessori teacher turned treasure hunter…and I must say she is good at finding those treasures. Here are a couple of them to feast your eyes on…but don’t feast for too long or these cool items might be gone.

Click on the pictures to go to the shop.

Hhm…I can keep my art tools in here.
