Busy As a Bee!
That title may be a little misleading! I have had some busy time but lots of down time too! Anywho, ever since I got my bee plate in the mail from Anthropologie....remember it.
I just LOVE it and have been wanting to add in some more bee things. This as been pretty easy since I already own a couple things and I bought the burlap bee candle holder that I shared here. I created a new vignette on the table and included my thrifted honey jar that I have had for a while now.
I am trying to think of something better to put in the lace edged milk glass dish, but haven't come up with anything yet. Any ideas?
Here's a close-up of the honey jar.
I added my new bee candle holder to the shelf on my mint green mirror and switched out the sheep for a mother and baby quail and changed the word on my scrabble tiles from spring to faith.
I like it! I need something different in the burlap candle holder.
Maybe some fresh grapevine from my yard!
I already had this beautiful frosted glass candy dish on the buffet. It belonged to my Granny Valentine and I just love it. I have seen one just like it on the Internet for $200! I would never sell mine though.
Here's a better look at the side.
And here's the lid...isn't it pretty?
And even the candy inside has bees on the wrapper. It is produced locally and has honey in it.
I am pretty sweet on this new understated bee theme. I think I might keep it for a while! I have actually been thinking it goes well with the look I am slowly trying to achieve. I love farmhouse style and think bees goes nicely with it. I have a little bit of a milk theme going in the kitchen and think I may need to make a sign that says Milk & Honey. I may make a chalkboard platter that I saw recently and put it on that. The hubby and I have big plans this summer to redo our library, dining room, living room, and master bath! I hope and pray we can get it all done. Hope you are enjoying Memorial Day weekend. I am truly grateful to those men and women who have served and continue to serve this glorious country I call home.
Until next time.....
