Spring decorating sounds like way more fun than spring cleaning. I had the house to myself today, which I hate more than anything. I get so lonely and sad. So I decided to cheer myself up and put up some decorating touches in my house that definitely say, "Sydney lives here!". I got some cute pieces at World Market, and Joann's which I highly recommend you go get some for your own home.
I got this vintage-inspired hanging flower vase at Joann's. I purchased some silk flowers and popped them in. Viola! The cutest garden that wont die on me. (I do not have a green thumb!).
It looks like a chalkboard on the back but it's really black metal scraps. It is hung by burlap ribbon.
My next items sit on the back of my toilet actually. My goodness, not that you needed to know that or anything. I purchase the milk bottle at World Market.
I bought it to actually store milk in, but it was to cute to properly use. My husband mocks me for decorating our toilet with a milk bottle, It's not like I fill it with milk and encourage
people to drink from it!
The Candle in the picture is also from World Market and something about it makes me feel like I just walked into a Pottery Barn. It's the scent "White Tea Ginger"
Lastly, I got crafty with Modgepodge! Who doesn't love this stuff. Now, I realize This project might make me seem dorky, but the craft goes with the aesthetic of my house
so I decided to go ahead with it.
My favorite TV show is Grimm (Oh and "Once Upon A Time", but that's another blog post). I also own The Grimm Fairy-tales book and I love the twisted stories.
I was so captivated by Nick's bottles of potions in his RV and the decor of the tea shop that I made my own Grimm inspired bottles.
