White Wednesday: Sheep & Flowers

It's easy to find ways to use my favorite cake stand even when I'm not baking. This one, from France, used to be my mom's. At Easter time I like to use it as a stand for an egg display. The rest of the year, I change it up for the seasons.

Here an old cast iron child's toy sheep stands next to a Victorian glass rose bowl filled with paper flowers. Below is a close up of the pretty white flowers from the painting in the background.


Be sure to stop by Faded Charm for more pretties in white.
