Spring Mantel 2014



 Spring Time

And well… that means it’s Mantel Time!

This one is a little different than my normal displays…

Spring Mantel Front

I kept it simple and “flow-y”… light and bright!

I created a window by using an old canvas art frame… along with foam core to create fake windowpanes.

(I didn’t have a gigantic old window… so I improvised)

In other words… got creative!!

Another Inspired Decorative Display Dress Form

Once upon a time…

I made my own decorative display dress form (from scratch)… tutorial here.

I made it out of paper mache.

It was a long and tedious project… but of course…

fun and adventurous at the same time!

Decorative Dress Form Tutorial

This time

I used The Polka Dot Closet’s way… (thank you Carol!!)

I bought one from Barr Display

So much easier…lol!

I love Carol’s work and have been so inspired by her dress forms!

Polka Dot Closet Forms

Ok… gorgeous right?

I’ve been wanting to make my own for awhile now…

And so… I finally made one…

Here she is!

Decorative Display Form

Not too “shabby”… eh?

I really love the way she turned out!

I used a hollow back form from Barr Display.

The base is #8020 and the form is #8020W if ordering…

they are two separate items.

Thanks to Carol (The Polka Dot Closet) for the inspiration and all the info on her blog…

and thanks to Barr Display for an easy shopping experience!

His Love Endures Forever… The Stone Collective


Today I want to share with you something a little different than my normal home décor post or just an art post…

Sarah over at Live It Out has started a creative group/project called

The Stone Collective.

“The Stone Collective is a community making much of Jesus as we create art, photography, prose, poems or music that commemorate the wonderful things God does in our life. Based on the passage in 1 Samuel 7:12-14, each month we will collect Ebenezer Stones as a regularly practice in the art of worship via our creativity.

I love that… worshipping Him and giving Him glory in our creativity.
