Another favorite thing of mine is visiting the Graphics Fairy. I discovered her blog months ago when I first started viewing blogs. Her images are very popular in blogland and I can see why. She has a great selection of vintage printables and backgrounds. I used some of her images for this mod podge project.
I painted the small pots gray and found a really cute wheat style graphic and used the paper transfer method with mod podge. The graphics were just the right size for these little pots.
Our mantel is just a big open space above our fireplace so it is hard to know how to decorate it. I have a gingko leaf style wreath over a mirror and my frenchy decor filling it up right now. I found another image from the Graphics Fairy and transferred it onto the small flowerbox. There are some really easy tutorials on the blogs to show you how to do this. Check out the blog Heavens Walk for a great tutorial on french flower pots. She did her transfers on large pots and the results are beautiful. I plan on doing some large flower pots as well later. Once you try this method it can be addictive!
This frenchy image was the perfect size for my flowerbox. I have my redone french card in the background.
I am now using ipiccy to edit all my photos. It is really easy to use. If you are looking for a free photo editor I would highly recommend it. I am still a bit of a newbie in the photography department and having an easy photo editor to use is really helpful. I used the bloom feature for this photo. It just softens it a little bit and creates a pretty image.
These are just a sample of some of the sweet and simple projects I am working on to brighten up my day. It seems like everything in my home is getting the frenchy treatment. Since I love to frenchify my decor right now I need to get started on more projects, but first I need to finish setting up my blog!
