Fluffing and Shabbying!

Ooooh La La!
I have been busy Fluffing and Shabbying over the weekend!
Oh yes, an innocent cheese box Shabbied white and decoupaged with one of my all time favorite vintage ads for Scott's Roses...
 The wood on this cheesebox was very porous, I had to use about four coats of paint it turned out so pretty...
I bought a roll of white tulle and fluffed up a shabby bird...
The Shabby bird is perched on top of this neat bottle my husband brought home from the restaurant, I added a pretty Victorian label. This could easily be used as a center piece by adding a candle to the top of the bottle.
 
This sweet shabby frame got a couple of coats of white paint and a printed image and wa la! Tickle me roses!
Make it Fabulous For Less Tip~ If you are dying for some beautiful vintage rose art but can't afford the framed prints in the Shabby Chic specialty store, search out your tag sales and thrift stores for paintable decorative cheap frames. 
(I found this one for $1) 
Add your favorite free printable rose image! 
Wa La, beautiful art for less! You can even change them out seasonally!
 I found these beautiful images over at Miss Rheas's 
where I also won a beautiful rose template! 
She is a doll and her creations are oh so inspiring!
 I hope you get out there and make something fabulous for less!

  3. Good Morning Olivia Sweetie...
    What a gorgeous share this morning. I love the bottle. What a sweet hubby to come bringing home this gorgeous gift. It is such a beautiful shape and the height gives way to so many wonderful shares with it. The bird is the element of surprise. I love the bird on top.

    Love the cheese box. So durn cute and the rose photo is absolutely delightful. I will need to spend a little more time at Ms Rhea's and check out the photo options. The tulle was the perfect touch to tie it off with.

    Your frame turned out gorgeous too. Love, love, love it. I am going to have to pay more attention to the frames when I go thrifting. Even the empty ones have potential.

    Have a beautiful day sweet friend. Thank you for sharing this morning. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
