I was shopping for fabric at Printers Alley and stumbled onto this little thing-y. The tag read, "pencil holder- $25". That is crazy expensive but I was mad for it. It sported a Fluer de Lis on top AND, it twirls! I adore interesting items for staging. Wouldn't it be cool holding napkins and cutlery or make up brushes in a bathroom? Do you have any suggestions for other uses? Oh! see that urn in the background? I found that a local Rescue Mission store. I planted 3 small asparagus ferns in it. Love the Old World charm of it and the fresh look of the ferns.
I was in a neighboring town and drove past "Steven's Consignment". Maggie (my car) did an immediate U-Turn. The nice lady climbed up high on a ladder to bring down this picture for my closer inspection. SOLD! I think I might keep in in our foyer instead of using it to stage. I'll show you an up close shot. Then one of it in my foyer. It shows how StagerLinda really lives. No perfection here: coats strewn on chairs, dog lease and cowboy's smokes out, wrapped hostess gift ready for delivery...it's real life babe!
The frame on this picture is tres riche. The colors are captivating and the composition unusual and interesting.
Better start prepping for my staging on Tuesday: pulling inventory, Windex-ing pictures and accessories, washing and ironing linens, hit the grocery for my Granny Smith apples, creating practice vignettes, wrapping, packing and loading.
