Jewelry Fruit Bowl

fruit bowl

Have you ever impressed…


Isn’t it great fun?

It makes me laugh thinking about it.

I am my own audience of one!

When I found this stray flea market find out in

the garage ,

I did not think of


I thought of the end of my dresser.


And so,

true to my blog’s roots

and my mother’s tutelage,

I spray painted it flat white.

And now it holds this.

I could send you sugary white sand to fill it..
how pretty your turquoise would look with that as a backdrop!

It looks great. I would never have thought to spray paint it. The color of the beads next to the white is stunning.

I love this!!!! I love it when we reaffirm to ourselves that an old path is so often the right path. Great way to start the day, Laura.
