I have packed away the Christmas (finally) and redecorated my home with a few items I scored from my big cabinets in the dining room. I keep a fair amount of items that I have collected for many years from estate sales, garage sales, gifts, and even items I have made in my large dining room cabinets. When I change up my decorations it is like shopping only it is stuff I already own. I really had planned to go with more blues and just a touch of pink but as you can see, my romantic notions have come out.
pink but lately aqua has been making my heart sing. I still love pink though and it is apparent when you step into my home presently. I know it is a bit old fashioned to decorate with doilies but, I guess I am an old fashioned girl. That is OK because I really still like to use them from time to time. The doilies were crocheted by my Irish Great Grandmother.
This is a lovely hand painted vase that I scored for a song from one of my favorite "honey holes" for antiques. I filled it with a flower piece that my dear friend Sarah made several years ago. It is a bit dated but that is OK for me because I have a bit of a "vintage roses and lace" theme going.
I haven't decided what to put inside the bird cage yet. I have considered a pink candle, flowers, and even a birds nest or bird. What do you think I should use? I would love to hear your ideas.
Here we are at the beginning and at the end...the beginning of my living room...this is what greets everyone at the front door...and the end of my post. I hope you enjoyed my tiny tour of a few of my vintage items that satisfy my romantic notions just a bit.
