Met Monday

Hello, Dear Ones! It's time for more wonderful transformations! Please go over and visit our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for bunches of makeovers - small and large!
Today I'd like to show you a teeny weeny inexpensive transformation. Love those kind, don't you? Can you love teeny weeny inexpensive transformations? Why you can bet your little pinky finger you can! Little cute chest, faux flowers and flower holder thingys.

I needed a little flower arrangement for one of my guest bedrooms and this is what I came up with. See the pretty little chest? Well, I found this little lovely at Ross for $6.99! Gotta love that place. Some little bushes of faux flowers. Then I got two, although, I just needed one, of these little flower holder thingys ~ I'm really not sure what you call them. But these are not the Styrofoam kind, but the kind you soak up with water and place the stems of live flowers into. I always buy this type, I like the ease of poking my fauxs into this better and I don't even have to soak up water into it! :)

Okay, I just unwrapped the flower holder thingy and one fit just perfectly in my little chest. After I had cut off all the flower stems from the bushes, I began to poke my stems into the flower holder thingy! In about ten minutes tops, I had this!
I think it turned out beautifully, don't you?

Here's the side view with the little chest's lid open. I'm loving my teeny weeny inexpensive transformation! Can you love...? Don't even ask because you know you can! :)

Here's the backside. I think it's lovely! Hope you don't think I'm bragging! I'm really not! Just loving it! :)

That's it, Dear Ones. Guess what? These flowers came from the Dollar Tree! Yep, they did! They're rather pretty, don't you think? It really doesn't matter where my fauxs come from if I like them - you know what I say - I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me!

Hmm...I think I see the beginnings of a tablescape. My little teeny weeny inexpensive transformation may have to wait before it goes upstairs to the guest room! ;) You just may see this little arrangement again and soon! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Paper Roses

I realized the way your eyes deceived me
with tender looks that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers that you gave me
And send the kind that you remind me of
Paper Roses
Paper Roses
Oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation,
Like you imitation love for me
I thought that you would be a perfect lover
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start
But like a big red rose that's made of paper
There isn't any sweetness in your heart
Paper Roses
Paper Roses
Oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation like you imitation love for me
