My favorite pastime.....(aside from shopping at my favorite antique stores!) is to put on some classical music and decorate my home, rearranging the furnishings, moving things from one room to another.After I moved things around to make room for the Christmas tree I like where everything was placed, but still had a big blank corner where the tree had been. So I stole the pretty pink dresser from my studio and brought it to the living room.I brought out a few of my favorite vintage goodies to decorate the dresser top. This is my new favorite corner. It has made my living room so much more cozy and I really needed the extra lamplight.
Next I took an old wire basket that I had spray painted a soft pink and used it to store some of my favorite vintage linens.And do you remember that pretty white oval frame my sweet father sneakily (is that a word?) bought me while I was busy shopping in an antique store a last summer? I finally found the perfect place to hang it. I used it to frame some of my pretty vintage treasures.Here is my jadite green enamelware teapot. I think it looks so pretty with the this vintage pillow that is made from a piece of vintage quilt.
And I have been busy making some valentines, but this is the only one that is ready to be seen.

I just discoverd your blog and I'm loving it! The candelabra you have on the dresser, I have one just like that, except you have the prisms added to the metal part. I have the whole thing that slips over it. I can't at the moment think of what its called. Anyways I'm coming back when I have more time to browse through it. Can't wait! As of now I'm going to bed.
