How to Hang Old-Fashioned Plant Botanical Prints

My bedroom redo is coming along slowly.  Since I am changing the color scheme to neutrals and white I need some new wall art.  I’ve always loved botanical illustrations so I searched for some inexpensive prints.

Amazon had a set of four Old Fashioned Plant Botanical prints that I liked.  When they arrived I was very pleased.  Now, how to hang them.  Nothing fancy or fussy but something casual that does not distract from the prints.  They are nicely printed on thick semi-gloss card stock.  My first thought was to use clipboards to display them on the wall.  I gathered several clipboards that I found thrifting but there was a problem.  They were too mismatched to work nicely together.  So I ordered a new set.

While I waited for the clipboards to be delivered I ran across some vintage wooden hangers in my stash.  I put one of the prints on a wooden hanger then hung it on the wall to live with it a few days.

The clipboards came and were exactly what I wanted.  I clipped another one of the prints to one of them.

For a comparison, I hung two prints displayed differently next to each other.  The print attached to the wooden hanger is curling up on the end.  So the comparison helped me decide to go with the clipboards.

I’m glad I tried the prints both ways and am happy with the way they look on the clipboards.

How To Create A Charming Fall Farmhouse Table

Welcome to How to Create a Charming Fall Farmhouse Table.  My breakfast area table was in desperate need of a seasonal update.

fall-farmhouse-table-ttitle

So I grabbed some odds and ends, a few vintage faves and a bunch of flowers to create a charming fall farmhouse table.

dasies

First, I layered on a buffalo check tablecloth and topped with a pizza board I’ve had for a while.  Then I added the vintage canning jar rack I found here as the base of my farmhouse centerpiece. Daisies, my favorite flower, fill three clear mason jars (two pints and one quart) .

daisies-3

Do you know what much-beloved movie this quote is from? ” I love daisies.  They’re so friendly. Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?”  The first person to leave the name of the movie in comments will get a little vintage token of my appreciation.

Around My House These Days

Today I’m going to share a bit of  Valentine decor sprinkled around the house.  

Around My House title

I hope you enjoy the tour.

Heart in tea towel

My Ikea Hack In Three Easy Steps is   No, I haven’t decorated the sun room yet but this little heart brightens the space and inspires me to get busy.

Ella Mae dressed for Valentine

Ella Mae moved to the Dining Room as part of the dining room makeover.  Progress so far is that the wallpaper is gone and the walls are freshly painted.  There is still a lot of work to finish the makeover.  Decked out in vintage inspired valentines and a crown Ella Mae looks lovely in the freshly painted dining room.    

Adorable Valentine

I found this little guy the most charming vintage valentine.

Crystal heart

The crystal heart once held a small clock.  The clock stopped working and I placed one of my vintage brooches in the spot that previously held the little clock.   This particular brooch belonged to my mom.  It was a favorite of hers and she wore it often.  It is from the late 1950’s to early 1960’s.   Behind the crystal heart is a rhinestone card holder with a vintage valentine card.  

Valentines times two

The honeycomb valentine decoration added even more charm to the vignette on my bedside chest.  The honeycomb is very delicate so I don’t know if I will keep it open.

All You Need Is Love

You may remember this Pottery Barn Inspired Valentine Art from last year.  This year I have it on a clip board surrounded by a vintage folding ruler.

Sweater Vase

I’m sure you’ve seen the sweater covered vases in blogland so I’m not going into how I made it.  It suffices to say this is one of the easiest projects that I have ever done.  To compliment the sweater vase I added a small flower frog with a vintage valentine.

Boxwood Heart

I popped this little rose heart into a small boxwood wreath and hung it on my TV cabinet (sans TV) in the family room.  Not exactly vintage but a fun way to display some Valentine love.

Platter of Valentines

In the foyer I placed a white ironstone platter filled with vintage inspired valentines on top of a stack of baskets.

Rose Balls

These three rose balls just screamed Valentine’s Day to me when I found them in one of my favorite thrift stores.

Annie E's Heart

Annie E looks quite glamorous with her gold heart pin.

Merry Christmas From Me to You

First things first Friday Thrifty Treasures is on hiatus until January 2016.  Decorating for Christmas took a back seat to renovations this year at the Blue Willow House.  It was not my plan to have renovations done during the Holiday Season but that’s when the people I wanted to do the work were available.  After the first of the year I will share the sun room and dining room improvements with you.

Vintage Ornaments

Since I don’t have a Christmas house tour to share with you I’m sharing a few photos from past Christmases.

Riding the Pink Pig

I’m going to close this post with this photo of my youngest daughter and grandson (his aunt) riding the Pink Pig at Macy’s – Lenox Square in Atlanta.  He is five in this photo.  So many changes in him in the last four years.  Time really does fly so don’t waste a minute and have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.

Always,

Decorating for Fall – A Retrospective

Decorating for fall is suddenly high on my “to do list”.

Decorating For Fall

 So I’m going to look back at a few decorating ideas from earlier years.

Thermos Vignette 3

Last year I put together a Thermos Vignette in my kitchen.

Filled Bowl

A while later I made a Globe Bowl and filled it with lots of fall goodies.

Foyer Fall Vignette 4

Then there was Fall in the Foyer.

Demijohn Vignette 1

In a  Quick and Easy Demijohn Vignette last fall I used a few of my dried hydrangeas and a white pumpkin.

Pillow on sofa

This fall project was a No Sew Decorative Pillow From A Place Mat.  I’m looking for some place mats to do the same project this year.

Pumpkin Mums =3

Two years ago I made a Cheetah Pumpkin as part of my fall decor.

Breakfast Room Centerpiece 3

That same year I put together an Early Fall Centerpiece and Vignette.  The coffee beans in the owl bowl made the kitchen smell divine.

Hope this gives you some fall inspiration I know looking at those old post really got me in the mood to start decorating for fall.  I’m glad you stopped by today.  If you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail on the side bar or Hello bar at the top, that way you will never miss a post.  I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest here and Facebook here.  Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
