Blossoming Inspiration

Inspired by Susan's surprise and a trip to the dollar store,
where I spied these poppy bouquets,
I decided to create a new door display of my own.
I began by rummaging through my
thrift store orphanage/storage room and discovered this
charming metal hanging pocket. I was naturally drawn to it about a year ago because
it replicates old ceiling tins.
I was thrilled to be finally giving it a purpose in my home.

I think it's
the perfect poppy container! They both conjure up feelings of years gone by,
so what would be more appropriate than to finish them off with
a little burlap and vintage lace.

Very pretty, Joy! I love those pocket containers because they work on my front door {between the door and the storm door}, where I can't normally fit things, like wreaths or baskets.

How inspiring! It gives me an idea for Reader's Digest Condensed books -- altered into handbags. You could use one of these for the holder as well. Thank you! Annie

GREAT! I have a white tin bucket on my front door with faux hyndrangea. Makes me want to paint it green (and rub the green paint off the raised parts so they'll stay white).

I LOVE faux flowers!! In fact, I get teased that I have an addiction.. I love the tin hanging pocket! So perfect together.
