Keeping It Simple

The newest arrival.  I love the pedestal base and the crown-look finial on the top.


I picked up a trailing look garland at Hobby Lobby.  I was actually looking for a boxwood garland, but they didn’t have one {that day anyway}.  I also picked up these two small grapevine wreaths.  They came two to a pack.


I wanted to use the garland to make something like this for my new pedestal cloche, which I saw over at Shabby Story and pinned to my Pinterest boards.


Simple.  Here it is with a nest and eggs grouping that I ordered a couple of months ago {either from Décor Steals or Antique Farmhouse}.


I love how some pieces hang down longer than others.  Some of the really long ones I wrapped around the circle I made to sit on the pedestal.


This piece is 31 inches tall! 


I love how the finial on the top looks like a crown.


One of the grapevine wreaths hangs off the top with a tag and some burlap garland. 


I attached the garland pieces to the grapevine with some green wire, since hot glue seemed to be melting the garland.


I just added some twine and hung the other one off the lampshade finial on this lamp.  I love the way it looks against this linen look shade and combines the elements of the birds nest, the moss balls underneath it, and the faux potted daffodils. 


Very nature-inspired looking, especially when you expand that view and take in my egg prints above.


{That air purifier on the side of the chest will not be there long}.  So sometimes simple is the way to go.  These pieces are enough for me exactly as they are.


Oh, and the reason I went to Hobby Lobby in the first place was to see if they got in more of that fabric for my sunroom valances.  They did! So I picked up more yardage and hope to get started on those soon.

Those kinds of trips always seem to add more to the shopping cart! Like the look of the wreath on the lampshade.

Oh Kathy that is so cute! It may be simple but it makes a statement!! I'm still waiting on a candle chandy that I ordered from Decor Steals and I have yet to receive it...they take forever. I received an email last Thursday stating that it had been shipped. I can't wait to see your valance for the sunroom.

LOVE the tall blue piece, and the egg prints. Did you get them off The Graphics Fairy, or buy them already complete someplace else?

Hey, Kathy. I love how your look turned out even more than the Pinterest picture. The whole nature themed wall is lovely! I adore the table and the lamp. Your table and lamp were on Pinterest and that's how I found your blog in the first place. :) Have a great rest of the weekend! ~ Jamie
