Last week I finally got around to putting away my Easter decorations... six-ish weeks after said holiday. That might just be a new
low record for me. But with my Pottery Barn knock-off bunny gone, I was left without anything fun on our open shelving. Enter my cure-all solution for decorating dilemmas: when in doubt, paint it out.
I got out my trusty pot of chalkboard paint, a piece of scrap cardboard, and my chalk markers and voila~ intsta-art.
Along with my grandmother's silver butter-dish, I displayed a few more pieces of thrift-store silver, some creamy white pottery, and a variety of faux greenery. The finished vignette feels simple and fresh. It's a nice segue from late spring into summer.
Peek-a-boo. I see me. And a crooked apple.
One thing I will readily admit: I am no photographer. I always admire the deceptively simple still-life shots I see on other blogs. Not so easy in real life. Everything looks fine from far away... and even through the lens of my camera, it seems fine. But closer inspection reveals a big ol' mess. The devil is in the details, as they say.
Let's take a broader look at things, shall we?
