French Inspired

I have been playing with water slide decals.
I purchased a set of French inspired decals from Carol over at the Polka Dot Closet.
My first try was this little vanity bottle.  After I applied the decal, I embellished it with vintage paper roses, ribbon and a vintage earring.

I don't know which I love more, the vintage paper roses (rescued from a vintage hat) or the vintage earring.

This is a repurposed spice rack.  I painted it up white, painted the lids white and added tiny rosebuds.  I added one of Carol's Paris decals to the top for extra charm.

Whenever I find a spice rack with ALL the jars, I am sure to scoop them up.  I don't have much luck finding them in thrift stores.
This is a sweet way to display glitter, buttons and loose jewelry destash.
 This was an primitive oak cracker tray.  Again, painted it up cottage white, distressed it and added a Fleura decal.
This is another cute way to organize your crafts.  Carol gives a great tutorial on decals (amongst many other fun turtorials).  You can visit her post here:  Carol's Water Slide Decals

I love these beautiful projects. It's amazing what you did with that ordinary spice rack. The bottles are tres elegant. I'm going to pin your bottles on my "Elegant Crafts" pinboard on Pinterest @moonflorists.

How are you feeling these days? Better? How's the die-it-ing coming? Somehow I've managed to keep my 40lbs OFF and I'm so grateful. I'll gain 3 and lose 4, gain 4 lose far I'm ahead!
