The Wonder of it All

Pam does such a great job of transformation with spray paint, I decided to give it a try. While I was with her fighting over the picture frame... I found a little square wire container. It was a lovely pepto pink and that wouldn't do. So we sprayed it with her ivory colored paint. I thought maybe coctail napkins would look good there, but it was too small so I decided to add it to this cabinet in the dining room with a collection of sea shells in it.

One of the great finds while we were browsing the thrift shops were these metal flower frogs. These used to be very popular with florists and homemakers to be used in flower arrangements. The frog holds the stem in place so that the flowers can be placed where you want them, instead of falling into a random display.
These were three different shapes and I like them sprayed ivory and arranged with photos in them on a tabletop. Of course they will also still work as frogs for the flower arrangements. As you may have guessed, I am a convert to spray painting, and when I returned home I couldn't wait to try that transformation stuff...what fun!

I LOVE these! They look modern and vintage at the same time.
