Dreaming of Paris.....
I love this new vignette I created! It is my ode to Paris, one of the many places I dream of visiting someday. My Wendy Addison "dream" banner and some vintage lace over my favorite mirror. I so wish I had bought two of these gorgeous mirrors when I found them years ago at Marshalls!A basket full of vintage lace, a vintage glass doorknob and my little Eiffel tower up on a pedestal. I love this palette of silver, tan, black and every shade of white. I would love to do an entire room in these colors.
An old rusty alarm clock, and lots of pretty laces. Some in an old jar with a rusty key and the rest in my wire basket. I had been looking for a wire basket just like this for years before I found one at guess where? The Goodwill, of course!
This silver tray, (tarnished to perfection!) was my grandmothers. Upon it sits a (copy of) and old French hotel receipt, a chandelier crystal, another rusty key, an old watch face, some vintage millinery, lace. and vintage rhinestone jewelry and another cute Eiffel Tower from one of my very favorite stores, "Fleuri". If you live in the Sacramento area you should stop by the store. It is amazing!
I also had a little fun taking some photos of a few of my favorite vintage goodies.
I love to collect these vintage button cards. The "Blue Bird Pearls" one is my all time favorite.
My prettiest teacup with a few sparkling rhinestones inside.
Lots of pretty laces, more rhinestons, vintage sheet music tied up in seam binding, vintage millinery, my very own baby shoes and my sweet husband's grandfather's baby spoon.And last, a little Valentine I created. Now I need to go do something a lot less fun than decorating. Time to clean the cottage. It might be a little more fun if mine looked like this...or if I had this adorable polka dot dress to wear while cleaning.....or these cute aprons to wear.....or maybe if I tied up all my towels with pretty pink bows like the lovely lady below it would be more fun? What do you do to make your household tasks a little more pleasant? I would love to hear your thoughts. Have a lovely day!
