Ya know how you peruse thru blogs and see something you TOTALLY love and then the stars align and VIOLA you have your own version of it?!?!?!? I was on Shabbyfufu's blog (this post right here http://www.shabbyfufublog.com/2015/04/inspired-by-forgotten-five-dollar.html - check it out....she had a GORG flamingo painting....I was at the neighborhood garage sale the weekend of the flea market and spotted this BEAUTY....see that price tag?!??!! .25 OH YEAH!!!!
I LOVE the vintage paint by number and wanted the frame to be a bit more elegant (I did toy with the idea of whitewashing it or painting Robins egg blue BUT I worried it would COMPETE with the print) SO GOLD It was!!!
So I swapped the yellow vintage shade for a light and airy linen shade (and added a creamy organza bow)
...touches of pink to tie in the "flyingmingos" as my daughter used to call them....
My throw pillow has subtle touches of pink because I colored it in with a sharpie (YES I did!!! see the post HERE http://objectofmayaffection.blogspot.com/2015/06/manic-mondayusing-sharpie-to-change.html I couldn't find the right pillows I wanted so I touched up my own)
I put up some patriotic decor for the 4th of July....
Added my deer skull (I KNOW I KNOW I just said take down the deer skulls BUT this one reminds me of that COVETED cow skull I want AND I added a flower crown)
Cleared off the coffee table.....kept it simple for summer
Kicked my feet up and enjoyed my handi-work!!!
