I found this Laura Ashley vase in an antique shop the other day.
I suppose this is considered an antique, but I remember very well
when my entire apartment (before I was married) was decorated
ala Laura Ashley.
I stenciled the walls of my bedroom and I made a cornice over my bed and
hung some of her mini print fabric. I had a white wicker headboard and the
room was ultra girly. The rest of my apartment was in duck egg blue with
more of her cute fabric everywhere. I painted the entire apartment
despite the fact that the lease said no. I changed out all of the builder's
grade lighting and the hardware on the kitchen and bathroom cabinets.
When I moved out, I told the landlord that I would change everything
back. To my surprise, he said no need because he had already
found a new tenant who wanted the apartment just the way it was.
Wow ~ did I ever luck out!
Well, I think this vase is quite happy on my studio hutch.
The colors just blend in perfectly.
Yes ~ it's my new favorite thing and it makes me
think of spring despite the fact that it is freezing cold here
today and I am getting really tired of having to wear
my down filled jacket every time I leave the house!

Bentley is feeling quite smug after chasing away that
big raccoon from our yard the other night. Yes it's
true, my tiny little Bentley has a very big ego!
