Green and White



        This evening, after an afternoon of gathering supplies and looking through what I had, I wanted to add some touches of spring to the house.  I had green and white on my mind , and it wouldn’t leave.  So I began to play.



        I found some very affordable faux greenery stems and floral pieces, and I wanted to use these stone pieces.



        And so I started  playing.


        I originally planned to use a piece of the striped fabric to create a runner, but I didn’t want to cut it.  I kept the 4 yards in one piece to use as a tablecloth.

(Photography note:  Photos at night never work out too well for me.)


          In the entry I combined as many green things as I could find.



        I love mixing high and low like crystal and terracotta.



        And then I did something with the dining table.


        It never stops does it?

I LOVE the green and white, and I'm really lovin' that green majolica plate of yours. I don't blame you for not wanting to cut that great piece of material. Love your fuzzy rocks in your apothecary jar!
Hope you're having a good week,
love ya dear,

I love the green and white for spring!

Laura, I like the fact that you scrunched up that fabric instead of cutting it. It makes for a different textured look, plus like you said, you can re-use it whole. Love the green and white touches. Linda

Love green and white -- it's such a soothing combination to me. Love your Spring "fluffing".

Marie said...

White and green lokks so "springy". Happy WW.

Debbie said...

What a great idea, I would not think of leaving the material in one piece, but you created and displayed it very nice...and it really did bring Spring in!~ Thanks for sharing!

Great job, Laura! Your fabric is beautiful! I don't think I'd cut it either.:)

I hate to cut fabric...even when it's bought for a project! Love the green...my favorite shade of green as a matter of fact.
