Champagne Anyone?

After a bit of a blogging respite, I'm feeling much better now.  I swear the germs in our house are going round robin.  In between blowing my nose and coughing up a lung, I remembered a champagne bucket and stand I got over the summer at a garage sale.  I wanted to paint it white but my husband talked me out of it.  Still, I had to do something to jazz her up:
I decided to give her a lace makeover.  Given my level of energy for the past few days, it's probably about all I could do!  I simply hot glued some of this vintage lace under the lip of the bucket.
Then I rolled some vintage sheet music, tied them with twine and added them to the bucket.  I felt like it was still missing something so I stamped a coffee-baked tag with a French crown and script, and tied that with twine around the bucket.
I think she looks much better now.  Just have to add a few more sheet music rolls and then she'll be exactly how I envisioned!  Oh and don't tell the hubby but I'm glad I didn't paint her white!

I'm so very glad you didn't paint her white. The simple touches add so much, and the silver makes a beautiful background.

You are SO imaginative! I'm so fascinated by your creativity. It seems to me you got an extra dose more than the rest of us!
