Texture and Color

I had this plain clear vase,
and after I placed my flowers in it, they looked BLAH to me!
Now this trick is all over the place, and whomever thought of it, was a genius. Gals are using this twine on everything, from books, to lampshades, fruits, etc....
just about anything that you can wrap it around. tip and tutorial is pretty simple...everything in your home can have a new look or second life. In my case there are many things that have been painted and repainted over and over...
this is pretty self explanatory:
Before vase BLAH!
Love cobalt blue and orange together...good oranges too!
Love my little German salt and pepper shakers my FIL gave us, perfect for Spring.
Thanks for stopping by.
My newbie party is going on NOW

What a great job you did with this! Love the natural feel of it now. And I'm loving those red scales I'm seeing in the background! Wherever did you get them?

Debbie that's so funny I just bought tulips the other day and did the same thing to a vase I had. Mine is a different shape so I didn't do the whole thing but dang it I want yours!!

That is sooo cute, and I have two big rolls that I bought at a "junk" sale for I think just a few cents a roll. Thanks, can't wait to wrap something in it.

What a great idea! I have loads of plain glass vases stored away that I was going to donate. Now, I think I may try my hand with some of that twine....

Cute idea Debbie! I rather like all the twine-y stuff. Just so you know I'm seeing Roosters everywhere now since your rooster post. Geez...I'm so not a Rooster lover, I should be seeing as it naturally goes into the French thing, but I'm still looking for special Roosters. You have special Roosters because I adored them. If you're in the market for roosters, they're all over JcPenneys and Sears. On sale even! Rugs, candles, wire roosters. Seriously, I'm not even kidding. I'm being attacked by roosters and it's all since your blog post. LOL ;)

Hope you have a fabulous weekend,
