A little bit of this and that!

Hello friends, nothing really new happening around here, but I just wanted to share with you a little project I did, I took a compote I had laying around my home and spray painted it white, I know you have seen these before, it really did need a little love and care as it was that tarnish gold brassy color, and although I liked it that way,I was aiming for a fresh bright white color ;) any who when I purchase it, it was missing the prisms...
What to do.....hummmm....




I remembered I had some inexpensive candle holders, I was not using so I borrowed them and added them to my pretty white painted compote...




I love the way it swags don't you ;) so romantic.....




Love the way the white paint makes the details just pop!!!




Another little project was adding these gorgeous pink rose garland I had and draping it around my favorite bird house added pretty ribbon and taaaadaaaa she is all dressed up for the spring season and summer too....




Loveeeee pink roses, nothing says romance to me more then pink roses...




A close up ;)




Added a cute little birds nest and call it done...
Well that's all for now, hope you enjoyed your visit and come again soon ;)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend~

Since the load is currently being balanced on the stop of a highly effective lever which can be virtually perfectly vertical,
although the balancing force is remaining applied incredibly
close to the fulcrum (a mechanical drawback) the resistance or torque encountered at
that stage will be minimal.

I agree, every day must have roses in it for me ... this creation is just gorgeous. Love the draping strands, a perfect touch.

TY for your sweet comments to Tanza, she is a beautiful sister-friend ...
we have so much fun together.

Hope all is well in your life ...
have a beautiful weekend.

TTFN ~
