Bejeweled Butterflies ~A Spring Tablescape

VISIT MY BLOG OFTEN AS I WILL SOON BE ANNOUNCING MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!

Wanting to do a very pretty Spring and Easter themed table I was so pleased when my sponsor Heather at Ladybug's Little Lane sent me these pretty eyelet placemats and napkins to use in my post. I love the lavender color.  "It's perfect, I thought".   I opted to use these in a tablescape that just has a touch of Easter but very assuredly says "Spring has Sprung". Not being able to find my Easter decor did have a little something to do with not going all out with bunnies. 


I began with a vintage, ivory colored Chenille bedspread I found at a thrift shop for $5. It's so cute with pom-pom trim that I had to pull the chairs away from the table to show this to you.  Even Shawn said he'd like this on a bed.

I could only watch in muse Remaining myself ever so discreet As she partook of nectar That lay in growth nearest my feet

Once again she dove below And took her final fill T…

Rings on Bottle Things

Recently I blogged about my Master bath transformation...sort of a transformation...I used what I had to decorate with..no major remodeling.  I had a few emails about my perfume bottles so I've decided to share my little secret.   I'm liking some of the large costume jewelry rings that are popular right now.  For Christmas this year I got at least four rings from my kiddos as part of my Christmas gifts.  I had some of them in the little shelf that's tucked under the medicine cabinet I hung up but I really wanted to show them off when I'm not wearing them.  I can't wear them all the time and surely not all at one time....so I decided to take this:


 and remove this:

and with this ring I thee
dump you lid for something better looking like this
I then realized I could do this with lots of perfume bottles...so I dumped lots of lids for rings...and when I want to wear one of them...I do!


I got this bottle for free...it was an empty sample and I just asked what they would be …
