Paris Bathroom Makeover - 3 More Things

This white pedestal plate came from Marshalls -- it had a red with white polka-dotted ribbon wound around it, but that was easy enough to change.  I added some pink/clear "rocks" and lotion/perfume/bath salts that coordinated with my decor and a little Dreamsicle (from a collection I started over 12 years ago) to the top of it.
In my search for Paris themed bathrooms on-line a wooden fleur-de-lis decoration caught my eye.  Since I had already seen some fleur-de-lis artwork at the Graphics Fairy that I liked it wasn't hard to mimic it with very minimal cost.  I enlarged it to the size I wanted and printed it on white cardstock. I then cut it out and adhered to a recycled cereal box and decoupaged over it.  The wire hanger with pretty beads was a lot of fun to make and added some color to the arrangement.
This little cream 'hanger thing" called my name in Marshalls.  It was on clearance, so I couldn't resist.  Wanted to do something in the French/Paris/Shabby Chic theme with it and though of Tim Holtz keys.  Just hanging the keys by themselves looked too plain, so I made little tags to attach them to and hung the tags.  The clipart came from two vintage sites:
(That Dreamsicle underneath has special meaning in that it was the first gift my husband gave me the day before he ask me out for the first time -- it was my birthday gift)
Here's a closer view of the tags/keys

I love pedestal dishes, and yours is gorgeous.

My favorite element, though, is that display of keys! Your tags are gorgeous and the perfect accent for the keys.

Oh, more bathroom stuff? Love it. I think that pestal thing is so cool. However, I know my cats would knock it and break it. *lol*
