Because of our Wicked Winter we have had a bit of a slow Spring. Last year the first part of May I did a post about my ferns which were a start from my dear Mother. Ferns and Fond Memories
This picture was included in that post.
Last night I gathered some of my fern items to create a vignette on my houndstooth table. Alas. . .my ferns are just barely popping through the earth.
I found the table at a yard sale a year or so ago for $20. I loved the curve of the legs. I decided to paint it white with homemade chalk paint. I then waxed it with both light and dark AS wax after painting the houndstooth design.
I guess this fern ball will have to suffice. At least for a week or so.
I’m up to three in my flower frog collection. Yahoo! The large one I just bought for $2 at a thrift store in St. George.
The fern picture that I recently found for $3 worked great for this vignette. I painted the gold frame white and changed the mat to burlap.
I have planted my ferns on the East side of our home. Each year I get a few more starts. Can’t wait until there are lots. There’s something magical about ferns growing in a mass.
I’m sure there are fairies lurking in there somewhere.
