I got a few Upsy Daisies Decor Elements during the Holiday Extravaganza, and I had thought of putting them in my stamp room. It is one of the rooms that we have painted recently in our home. The other room is the guest bedroom, and then I got to thinking they might look good in there, so yesterday I put them up in there and I think they look great. Jeff was pretty impressed too.
I must admit,it would be much easier if we didn't have textured walls, it is a pain putting them up cause of the texture, but the wall that is not textured in my stamp room, they go up lickety split.
Here you can see them…
I put them above the bed, and just a bit higher then the pillows, I was gonna have it lower, but I didn't want anyone's head rubbing on them, can you imagine someone waking up and coming to breakfast with a headful of upsy daisies? ha!
I put the old olive ones on first and then added some white over top, I think I might go back and add some lower ones still. I still have some of them left. (added later to original blog post….and added to wall….I did go back and add some lower daisies in old olive and white, I will take pics and show you all later, it does look better) Added to blog post after other add: Here you can see where I added some more lower and I like it better, and now wish I had staggered the daisies more…but what can ya do? I still like it, and the decor elements are so much fun, and if I ever want to change it, it will come down easy enough to do something different.
I also added a few on the closet door, Jeff was like "that looks way cool" ok, well maybe I should not put quote marks, cause I don't think Jeff has said way cool in his life, but he did really like them.
Then I still had some left over, and I had found this tin ages ago and it was old olive and well it just all matches ya know.
So I snipped the long legs off the stems, and applied it to the tin, this went on very fast. I put some sunflowers, apples and a few pinecones, sprinkled with rose potpourri oil and it smells so nice. I am a big mover arounder. I have things in that room which end up in this other room for a different purpose. It works for me.
Here is how it all sits. This used to be an old dresser of Poppa and Granny's and it was painted white, we had it stripped down and Jeff refinished it with new hardware etc. I love the old furniture we have gotten over the years, if it could only talk and tell stories…well then we would live in a Disney movie wouldn't we?
While I was messing around cleaning and taking pictures, I took this one of the glass ornaments in the apothecary jar on the counter, I turned the camera setting to food and a blue tint, cool eh? Of course I can see myself in the balls, and don't know how you would get away from that, but it still looked pretty neat I think.
Well I had my last class of 2009 today, my final calendar class, and I made a new friend. Dany a fellow demonstrator from Canada came, and we visited and got to know each other, she even brought me some goodies, I will share pictures with you tomorrow. It was sure nice meeting you Dany!
I gotta wrap presents, finish up the last of my shopping, and get to the UPS store.
Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
