A few days ago I stumbled upon this post from Becky at Beyond the Picket Fence and it stopped me dead in my tracks. It's been a long time since I've seen something I love SO MUCH!
I've always loved pewter pitchers and creamers but have never been able to figure out how to use them in my decorating. But then I saw this post and knew I had to have my own set of hanging pitchers immediately. So I ventured out with my 2-year-old in tow and hit the local thrift stores on half-price-day. Less than an hour later we came home with five metal pitchers and creamers, along with a grab bag of various floral scraps (I could tell there were a lot of red berries in there...one of my passions in life), all for a total of $15! I put my little one down for her afternoon nap and got to work on my project. By the time she woke up I was done! It was such a fun and easy project.
I hanged it in front of a mirror above my mantel (to copy Becky even further), and I love the way it reflects.
Pewter pitchers with red and silver berries...this combination will be included in my heaven. Along with Wallflowers plug-ins from Bath & Body Works. And Stephen's Hot Cocoa. And Coldplay.
p.s. Annie hates Coldplay. She'd want me to make that clear.
