It's spring break and even though it's nearly freezing and pouring down rain outside,
I am feeling that spring cleaning/nesting bug.
The above photo is of a display in our entry hall that has been a work in progress
over a span of the last month or so. It keeps evolving and I really like it.
yep, that's an old folding ruler (I am married to a carpenter afterall) tied with black lace and a neat photo frame that I won as part of a bunko prize once upon a time. It holds one of our engagement photos. The sheet music is an old hymn rolled and tied with estate sale ribbon trim and then simply thumb-tacked to the wall inside the paper roll.
The music crown is from our Christmas crackers
at Adrian's parents house. A wonderful British tradition!
Here is one of my "two little touches" that I just did.
Why have a plain old alarm when you can have a little ledge for decorating?
"Vietato fumare" means "no smoking" in Italian
I bought it way back in 1997 at a little, dusty shop behind the Duomo in Firenze.
The spool of pink thread came from a shop in Fredericksburg, TX.
Here's the second little touch. I really like that little rag ball with the word "love" pinned on hanging off this photo from our wedding.
Is this your spring break?
What will you do?
Have a happy one!
