Simple Vignettes

I never have my home completely decorated ~ always changing some little something here and there, maybe a bird's nest on the ivory pedestal today, and back in a silver dish tomorrow ~ the robin's egg blue vase in the bathroom for the moment, but possibly in the kitchen next week.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
So, for today, I'll share a few little vignettes scattered here and there throughout our home. Next week I may have something different to share.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I like odd things, old things, simple things, things someone would throw away.... I'm not picky!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I like things made by friends and talented artists. I like family heirlooms, no matter if they are rickety and worn...
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I like old wooden cupboards, bird's nests, feathers, tree bark, mosses and lichens...
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I like old books ~ musty, dusty books, it doesn't matter...
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I like old vintage jewelry ~ bits and pieces of broken sparkly jewelry...

  1. Lana, I love it all! You have such a talent for making the simplest things look spectacular. The photos of the old books and the tiara is my favorite.
    Can't wait to see the next arrangements.

  7. Those are the most fabulous displays!! The nests and that bowl of hardware (knobs, handles, etc.) You make it all look gorgeous especially when grouped like that. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I have a jewlery box full of treasures~ old baubles, necklaces, and pins. We wear them all the time. It is amazing what one gaudy rhinestone pin can do for a jacket.
