Whitewashed Proteas!

White Tulips yesterday - White Proteas today! Except that yours truly was the 'artiste' this time!

Remember those rich red Proteas? After Christmas I placed them in a basket and allowed them to dry. This weekend we had guests coming for dinner - [always a good incentive to work through the decor 'to-do-list'] -

So I spray painted them white and placed them in vintage honey pots, securing them in place with gravel. Look at the picture tut below!

They provide a light and humorous contrast to the sometimes overwhelming stone wall in my living room!

I've been admiring your African tulip arrangements and now this! Wow. I'm inspired to break out the spray can : )
