Can you mix an elegant vintage cherub statue with an old worn farm table, a worn old bench with bits of barn red paint still on it, a newly slip covered wing chair, a beautiful old antique crystal chandelier, a $10.00 chest of drawers given new life with a coat of white paint (which I still haven't put the crystal knobs on yet), old china plates and new comtemporary art and metal scroll work? Yes, absolutely! (The wing back chair is the Diva's place of honor.....that would be me. :)
Shoot, us antiquers, junkers and thrifters have been going green for years before it was the thing to do. I am sure we have saved countless items from being thrown in the landfills and given them new life and precious new homes. All the bits and bobs of no longer wearable jewelry is also being given new life as I incorporate them into the crowns I have been making for the boutique. This Diva crown wears an old chippy enamel butterfly brooch and a gorgeous old pink rhinestone button. Love the colors on this piece. It's so fresh and Springy looking.
Two of our favorite sweet little birds are leaving the nest for a while. Jenn and Jacqui have to leave for 12 weeks, I believe, while their new home is having work done to it. We will miss you beautiful ladies tremendously and your charming blog. But we do hope you will be able to pop in every now and then to say hi 'cause we love ya' so much. sniff...sniff) xo Lynn
