from the brides cafe.
the vase, the pitcher, the tin cans, the block letter, the candle...they all come together perfectly, no? on paper, it seems like too much is going on...but surprisingly, all of the parts are beautifully incorporated.
lightbulb moment: in place of the letter 'k' in the picture, how about a shabby-chic'd out or spray-painted wooden carving of some kind? nothing too obtrusive, of course. something juuuust right.
a starting point for inspiration could be the unfinished wood products offered at michael's and joann.
hm...will have to do some more research.
