Two Blah Items into One Pretty Piece

Good day everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane. Grab your favorite cup o’ and relax as we stroll down another creative path.  About a month ago, I purchased a rather blah glass vase on sale at Tuesday Morning and glass dish at my local thrift store. The glass vase had wonderful potential with the swirling design, but it’s function needed a change. So, I primed it, painted it white, and distressed it.

I “blushed” the underside of the glass dish to bring out the design…light green on the leaves, pink for the flowers, and a light blue for the tiny center flowers. Then I attached the dish to the top of the vase. Now, it’s a perfect dish pedestal for any room and can hold jewelry, potpourri, fruit, cookies, finger sandwiches, or simply pretty on its own – you get the idea.

Well, that’s all for today. I hope you are all well, and you’re inspired to do something that brings some pretty into your life. And speaking of which…

A Little Something Extra

One of my LinkedIn Network friends, Kristen Marie Schmidt, has a mission to help others bring back pretty, and her book, 30 Ways To Bring Pretty Back, is her newest way of inspiring prettiness in everyone’s life. You can check it out on Amazon or check out her Bring Pretty Back website.

Until next time, may happy days abound!
