2 Vintage Horse Prints Printable 1.jpg
With the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby I thought I would offer these vintage horse print printables.

I would be nice to use them on your bar or buffet table if you were hosting a Run for the Roses party.

They show a variety of horses including a Polo Pony, Standardbred Trotter and of course a Thoroughbred Race Horse.

The image on the prints are about 5 1/4 by 7 1/2 inches and will fit into a 8 by 10 inch frame that has matting. (MoreStyleThanCash will not appear in the printable)

Make your grocery store plant look as if it came from a designer florist.

An Easter Lily is a beautiful plant to have in the home during the holidays but the the plain ugly plastic container they come in are not very attractive.

Even if they are sold with foil wrap around them they don't really do justice to the beauty of the plant.

A very decorative way to present pants is to plant them in bowls. This Easter Lily looks stunning planted in a blue and white Chinese bowl.

There are some tricks and tips that you need to know if you are planning to do this.

how to make a no sew tulle pom pom pillowIt is surprisingly easy to make Tulle Pom Pom Pillows. I have seen displays with tissue paper pom poms placed on beds and thought why not do the real thing?

Unlike the paper ones these pillows can be scrunched and will spring back to shape.

These are wonderful in a girly-girl room or just to add some fun to your own bedroom. Toss a couple onto a chair for a whimsical look.

Using different shades of pink you could have a fluffy mount of them on a couch or chaise lounge.

Made with tulle they are easy to make and no sewing skills required!

Love...ahhh. Spread some around your home. This LOVE Print (free printable) is great to put anyone in the Valentine spirit and you can leave it up year round.

The great thing about prints is that they can suit almost any decor by switching up the frames. Have a modern room? Pop the prints into a simple metal frame. My decor is a little more traditional so they are in gold colored frames.

It is easy to download these prints from my PDFs and just decide where in your home you would like to put them.  They will fit into 11 x 13 inch frames that have 8 x 10 mat openings.

They would look charming from everywhere from the bedroom to the diningroom.

"an expressive, creative and embracing purple--one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones".
