Spring Fever with Copper and Green


Copper and green…

I’ve seen this combination a few time before, thought it quite pretty and knew I had to try it myself.  With a few décor beauties from the Goodwill, a few family heirloom-like pieces and a few added craft store decorating essentials, I was able to mix and match until my heart’s content.  A touch of St. Patrick’s Day, a touch of Easter, a touch of spring to bring down my fever… oh, so clever, but here we go… 


These sparkly copper leaves from a “decorating” Christmas past…seem to just pop against all that green.


My dad’s old oil can… might the purest copper for miles…


A basket made from inverted “decorative moss trim” and fastened with an old copper knob…

Filled with some “paint splatter textured” dinosaur eggs (aka: foam balls) click here if you want to see how I made them.



A bundle of old candles wrapped in copper craft wire…

Some how they look anew, all wrapped in copper.



My mother’s copper fondue pot…

Very cherished!



A handmade glazed pottery piece, signed “CAR 99”…

It’s quite interesting, and even a bit Celtic, perhaps.


A green glass decanter…

Not sure what…

I’ll have to research this piece sometime.



Thank you for taking a peak at my copper and green, inspired by BHG, March of 2004.

I’m sure I didn’t do it justice, but I had a blast, just the same.
