(feel free to click on the photos for a better look)
this arrangement was inspired by Mothology.
as a little girl i collected silver souvenir spoons that i found at garage sales (what a weird child i was!). i found them recently while going through some boxes in the closet. i really like the way they look in this little gourd jack-o-lantern basket...
that is the fabulous old mirror found at the thrift store ($5!) that i have been meaning to show you. the frame is wood that was treated with gesso before the gold paint was applied. i love the beveled edge and the black spots from where the silvering has worn away.
this was my very poor attempt to show off my fabulous new tunic from Target (and my black glitter "spooky" sign!). alas! the bad lighting , the unmade bed, and the pile of laundry in the reflection kind of threw a damper on the whole thing. but since i kind of look like a sad little victorian girl ghost haunting the old mirror (and with a digital camera, no less), i had to share...
i've been collecting these gold toned frames with hanging rings for a little while now, so i was thrilled to find this one at Goodwill. it is just the perfect size for the little bird book page i purchased from PetiteMichelleLouise (fabulous shop). don't you just love those crows?? i have a plan for a wall arrangement with all the frames that i will be sure to share once it's completed.
and now i am off to have some tea and cappuccino craving cake (Trader Joe's!!), but first:
what elements are you fancying this Fall, both for your home and personal style?
