I put together this lovely little spring vignette today to showcase some beautiful flowers my mother gave me. I just love how they look when placed on a simple green bistro table. Thank you for the flowers, Mom. Photo styling by Greta Krafsig, Sr. (aka “my muse”).
I’m working on something a little more challenging today. I’m using a wet-on-wet painting technique this time, and I’m happy with the results so far. Here’s a preview:
Here are a few pictures of my porch today, which is still decked out for fall and winter in deep purple, wine, plum, and gold. You’ll notice that the red rattan chairs in my last post are now a deep eggplant. You should have seen my neighbors’ expressions when they saw me painting my porch furniture purple last fall. I thought it was a bit risky but I love the results. My inspiration for this project was the awesome plaid pillows and fabulous wine colored pillows; I couldn’t resist those ruffles. I carried those pillows around the store and selected everything else with those items in mind–the wreath, the chair cushions, the rugs, the silk flowers, and paint (Rustoleum in Grape). I purchased all of the items on this porch, except the furniture, at Target.
