Bittersweet

Since moving my decor style and theme has changed...in the last house I did the reds, golds and browns for the formal living room, BUT no more! I am going for a 'rustic elegance' look in this house....whites, creams, burlap, leather, texture and a POP of color. Granny Smith Apple Green happens to be THAT color of the moment for me!

I had this vase in the garage and was unsure why I even bothered to move it....I was ready to pitch it in the trash when I said to myself 'WAIT! Aren't you always reading on blogs how these girls spray paint everything and anything that doesn't move?!?' YES!
(edited to add the vase pic was taken with camera phone)
So I busted out my trusty can o'paint and gave it a few sweeps of color.....

PERFECT play off the orange in the bittersweet (which was purchased this past weekend @ the Flea) and the leaves in my pottery. Here's a lil tip of the day : use it all! By that I mean, these leaves fell off the "bouquet" of leaves (and were in the bottom of the cello wrap) that I have on my mantle and my first reaction was to throw them away too! BUT the wheels started turning and I knew I could do a cute lil arrangement in the pottery (I was thinking a candle in a jar initially BUT LOVE the white pumpkin). HAPPY FALL Y'All!
