|Ha! The sofa isn't finished in this photo, thats how long ago it was taken.|
Remember when I said I like to bit off more than I can chew? Well, I wanted to do my own flowers, to save a ton of cash. But when I looked into buying the vases online, I felt like the cost of the vases meant I wouldn't be saving so much money anymore*.
|I didn't paint all of these. My most recent aquisitions.|
|This is my attempt at Blue Willow.|
So I decided I would go to thrift stores and collect blue and white painted ceramics. They're all over the place, right? And even the low quality ones look nice, right?
After about 3 trips to the thrift store, collecting 2 or 3 vases tops, I got impatient. And decided I would just...paint my own.
|The fish and the dragon....probably two of my faves.|
And I think (fingers crossed) I probably have enough now. Particularly given the fact that I keep adding things to the tables, like candles and lanterns....
|No these urns do not contain the ashes of someone in my family, this is just a me going through my urn phase. And then I placed them around the photo of my family, because it seemed like a nice pseudo-mantle....|
So what do you think?
* I completely acknowledge I have probably invested an equal amount in this plethora of vases. I know.
