Home Sweet Home #63

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I thought it would nice to create a flower arrangement in this old trophy I thrifted.  I can see this being a centerpiece for a graduation party with a stack of yearbooks under it or for a Mother's Day brunch with Mom's favorite books stacked up.  What ever the occasion it would be a fun look for all of the events that come up in May. 

 Are you busy in May?  It really is a busy month around here.

I'm adding this collage I made with my Titanic Inspired post and this trophy.  The old trophy seemed to go well with this photo. 
Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.

 Mary Alice at Chateau Chic showed off some hand-me-downs that were wonderful! 

Babs at Upstairs Downstairs showed off some seashells that were beautiful.

Tammy at A Walk in the Countryside  showed off a pretty spring table.

Cindy at Blessings from Cindy created this shabby chic style lampshade.  Check it out.

Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!   It is wonderful to have you here! 
I will join these ladies today:
Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground 
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Rooted in Thyme Simple and Sweet Fridays
Pearls and Lace Thursdays  at Faith, Grace, and Crafts
Home and Garden Thursday  at A Delightsome Life
