A Display is Born; part 3

I know I'm suppose to do a weekend eye candy, but I'm so excited about how my display is coming together I just have to continue with this series. As you remember the challenge is to create a stylish display on a $40.00 budget. So far I have altered some $1 frames from Michaels, added felt to floral foam for in the frames, and now I'm adding decorative potpourri. Yes I said potpourri.

While at Michaels trying to get materials to bring to life the inspiration I got from Anthropologie I gathered all these organic "objects de art" from the floral section, you know the stuff I'm talking about. But it was so expensive I realized there was no way I could buy the variety of items I liked. Then I spotted a big bag of potpourri. It had several interesting organic elements in one $10 bag, problem solved.

Here's the potpourri just out of the bag.

And here are some of the visual vignettes I created with it.

Money spent to date 29.00. Table two is giving me more problems than table one. Aargh! I'll try to show it to you tomorrow or later today.
