Such a beautiful Christmas bow... I found a bag of these at a garage sale some weeks ago. I know they were meant for Christmas decorations, but I've always believed, why wait for Christmas? Honestly, if you came to my house you would see a number of decorations that were actually Christmas ornaments but I've re purposed them into whimsical decor. It makes me happy to see them. My mom has told me that when I was a child staying home sick from school, I would ask her to play Christmas music for me, no matter what they month was. That has never left me. Why wait to celebrate? If it makes you happy, just do it! So I promptly took one from the bag and adorned my little Eiffel Tower.
This little butterfly came in a package at another garage sale. He had a brown base (gosh, what do you call that part on a butterfly?) which I did not find attractive. So, of course, out came the... (Jodie, cover your eyes at this next part) glitter! A little glitter can make anything look better. Heck, I'm wearing some right now!
P.S. If you are wondering why I sometimes mention Jodie when I talk about glitter, read this post on her blog everything vintage. She is just too funny!
