I've been trying to relax today. Something that's hard for me to do. I didn't work on any major projects, but I found myself playing with vignettes. Here's a simple one I put together with two of my favorite things. Lavender and metal.
I've had this timeworn clock face for a while. I love the chippy weathered finish.
My little urn is not an old one, but I love the shape. It's traveled all over the house, holding everything from pens, to candles. This is what it looked like back in the Fall.
Well, I wanted the urn to look a little more like the clock face. So, I took a razor blade to it, and went over the details with a coarse sanding pad. Throw in a little lavender, and they make a nice little vignette on my bedroom dresser.
Relaxing tonight. Hunting, gathering, and redesigning tomorrow. See ya soon.
so funny, Rosemary. You are a lot like me...can't really relax and sometimes, I'll just take a razor blade, scissors, butter knife...whatever and rework something!ReplyDelete
I wondered if you ever relax--you are so great at leaving comments on others blogs, blogging yourself and endless projects to share. You must not sleep:)ReplyDelete
That's such a pretty urn, Rosemary! It looks like a versatile piece,too.ReplyDelete
You certainly deserve to relax with all the projects you do! Lavender is one of my all time favorites! It's always a winner and the scent can help you relax.ReplyDelete
I hunted and gathered all day ... felt good to be out with some cash and the trusty ole' workgloves ... you know me and gloves!ReplyDelete
even painted outside late this afternoon ... thot of u

I am relaxed most of the time, so i try and make my self do something once in awhile. So sad, I used to be such a go getter, and now, I only go when I have to get. Richard from My Old Historic House.ReplyDelete
Love that vignette! I like how you distressed the urn. I agree that is a great combination with the lavender.ReplyDelete
Your post reminds me so much of France. I love the lavender and the urn is devine.ReplyDelete
Rosemary you make some of the most beautiful vignettes!ReplyDelete

beautiful! Happy to have found your blog today. New follower!ReplyDelete
Yep I like it even better with the more aged appearance. Love that clock face too. VannaReplyDelete
What a beautiful vignette, Rosemary! I love urns, and I can almost smell that lavender:) I've got an old clock face that I want to redo one of these days, thanks for the inspiration!!ReplyDelete
A razor blade! You are so clever Rosemary. I love how the urn matches the clock's patina now!ReplyDelete
I'm glad someone else thinks razor blades are all purpose tools. I wonder if you could create crazing lines on thick paint with one? The urn looks even better now! ~ MaureenReplyDelete
so lovely, of course!!ReplyDelete
Ok, now I am relaxed too!ReplyDelete
Oh I love this. The urn, clock and the lavender is just amazing together. I love simple displays like this, so pretty. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, MartyReplyDelete
We have lots of lavender growing in the back yard. I'm inspired to find a place for it indoors now. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I think I may have to PIN the lavender and clock...just fabulous!ReplyDelete
