I missed posting anything at Easter because life has been a little crazy.
I'm not sure that it is going to simmer down anytime soon.
I did manage to do a little decorating for spring.
I didn't come up with this idea but have seen it around on Pinterest and on other blogs.
I replaced my old Target rainboots with a pair of Hunter rainboots from Nordstrom Rack.
They were a complete steal!
The old rainboots, a gift from my daughter, were ripe for a makeover.
I spray painted them with green paint suitable for plastic.
Someone at the school was throwing away an old parasol.
I snagged it late last summer and a vignette was born.
The flowers are from Hobby Lobby.
They are a little different from your typical silk flowers. The petals are fabric but the leaves are almost like foam in texture.
The green school chair was another cast off from work.
There are two of them and they are painted Alaska Tundra Green chalkpaint by CeCe Caldwell.
When I got home from my trip on Wednesday, Bill had sprinkled jars filled with mums around the house.
Nothing speaks to a girl like flowers and Mason jars.
It was good to be home.
The first thing I saw when I walked through the front door was my little gnome garden on the dining room table.
The bench and flower pot came from Michaels.
The rest came from Hobby Lobby.
Another gnome is hiding behind the little flower pot.
Little vines make the clay pot look like it's a basket.
I love that this gnome is out of proportion to the rest of the vignette.
Isn't that how it should be in gnome world?
The laundry room got a wee one and a toadstool.
My youngest made this elf in grade school art class.
I used a Michaels gift card to get the bench for Mr. and Mrs. Gnome and a new pillow for the couch.
I love the firefly and the hydrangea.
The metal vase got some dried hydrangeas.
That's about it!
