Not too long ago, I had joined a group on CasaSugar called, "Lovely Little Vignettes". Keeping the "LOVE" in mind, yesterday I posted a vignette I had put together back in February - and it got FEATURED today on CasaSugar!! That is so cool... CasaSugar - "You've Got The LOVE!"

The details of the vignette are:

•I used three canvases as the backdrop. The large centered canvas is covered with a five dollar shower curtain — fell in LOVE with the print! The two smaller canvases on the left and right were painted turquoise using paint from accent wall opposite this space.

•The black and white wedding photos on the Brooklyn Bridge in matted frames were picked up at craft store for five dollars each.

•The red LOVE Robert Indiana sculpture wedding photo was captured in NYC.

•Another photo of same LOVE sculpture in NYC (behind the bowl) was taken when we were engaged.

•The iconic I ♥ New York logo from a gift bag. I used it b/c we were married in NYC and I do LOVE New York!

•The ball lamps from Ross were red — fell in LOVE with their shape! I spray painted them white and added white shades from Ikea.
•The Regency-style candlesticks were picked up for five dollars while thrifting. They were brass, but fell in LOVE with their style! I spray painted them glossy white and added red candles for one dollar.

•The coral in the bowl we brought back from our first lovely wedding anniversary trip in Key Largo.

•The Tiffany bowl was a house warming gift from our realtor — who doesn't LOVE Tiffany?

•The books were both five dollars and picked up at Salvation Army. LOVE a good deal!

•The white spotted glass vase was also five dollars from BigLots. And yes, I'm sorry, the flowers are faux. But the bunch was only five dollars at a craft store, and I LOVE that I have it to reuse again and again.
