I recently started following this awesome blog, Debbiedoo's Blogging and Blabbing, and let me just tell ya, this gal is a hoot!!! She has a beautiful home and some awesome ideas! If you've never paid her a visit, you need to. She is hosting a party right now called Magazine Copy Cat Challenge. The challenge is to take a photo of a vignette or a project of some sort pictured in a magazine and then recreate it in your home. This idea really appealed to me so I decided to give it a shot. I have a habit of saving favorite magazines for forever, and my inspiration came from my July 2009 copy of Country Living. Here is my magazine inspiration photo:
I love the hydrangeas and the lemons add just the right punch of color. Here's my version:
I used a green pitcher with pink hydrangeas and I also added a little doily to my tray. I love how this turned out!
I had so much fun with this project, that I decided to do another one. This is a nod to the upcoming 4th of July holiday. I used a photo from the same July 2009 Country Living magazine. Here's my inspiration photo from the magazine:
And here's my version:
Yep, this is the same arrangement as you see in my header photo. Love the contrast of the colors in the flags with the colors in the sunflowers. So pretty!
Thank you, Debbie, for hosting this awesome party! Please click on her blog name above to check out all the wonderful "copy cats" in this challenge. This was fun!
Until next time. . .
