Antoinette & Friends Door Plaque

Those of you who have followed my blog over the years know that summer usually tends to take me away from posting very regularly at all. It's not that I'm super's just that the last thing I want to be doing is to be sitting at my computer on a lovely day! I am an outside girl, even in the heat! (*_*) I'm so thankful for all of you regular posters though as I love to while away part of my evenings perusing all of the gorgeous eye candy out thank you ladies for keeping me entertained and up to date! (*_*)

Today I thought I'd share with you a little project that I finished up a few weeks back. A friend of mine gave me this adorable wooden sign complete with a very pretty carved top with a bow in the center so I thought I'd make a little vignette to hang on my front door. I added vintage sheet music for the background and then adorned it with gorgeous tags that I purchased from my friend Janet over at Shabbyfufu. She makes the BEST stuff! I added a few small embellishments and then I put an adorable pink bird on the corner. I found this charming creature at Michael's a few months back. Actually...I bought all of the pink birds that they had left! What can I say?!...I'm a pink girl! I was also going to add trim around the edges, but I never got around to it so I think I'll just leave it alone. I didn't have any at the time and I didn't feel like buying any so there it sits!

I'd love to hear what projects you are working on or what's on your front door. Until next time, have a lovely day! ~Stacy~ xo

Stacy, what a clever idea! This is a beautiful way to greet visitors. The pink paint really embellishes the gold frame, and sheet music always elevates a vignette.

Best Wishes,
