Happy Weekend everyone! We just got back from the flea market... it wasn't so much fun...way too crowded, so I felt like I didn't really get a good look. But, I did find some lovely treasures that I will hopefully be able to show you tomorrow. But tonight, I am joining Donna at Funky Junk Interiors to celebrate her party. Tonight is Vignettes night, so I will show you some new and old vignettes around the Hughes' Casa.
This is a little vignette on the table in our entry. It has one of my favorite silhouettes and two wood printer's blocks that I love.
This is a fairly new vignette made of a few vignettes... a vignette within a vignette if you will. Some of you may remember this table being covered with my mercury glass collection. Well, Baby Hughes has taken it upon himself to start ramming the table with his Handy Manny car, so my lovelies moved inside a metal and glass cabinet. I didn't really like this at first compared to what it used to look like, but now I do. We hung my $10.95 mirror and then I shopped the house to fill it up. Still looking for a way to cover up that blasted thermostat!
Here is one of the vignettes on the table. It has my vintage wedding cake topper from our cake on top of a battery jar lid under a cloche. My sweet mercury glass bird on top of a small ironstone plate and some vintage books are thrown in for height and color (The Complete History of Dames is one of the titles, very cool crown drawings in it.)
Here is our mantle with a mirror that I silver leafed and some tarnished silver with some mercury glass votives and some black vases. I always like to put a living plant or some dried or fresh flowers in my vignettes.
Another cloche... this one sits on top of my ironstone cake pedestal with some printer's blocks. I put some dried hydrangeas in a mint julep cup and included a vintage photo. Then, we have the pumpkins at the bottom... this is where they are when Baby Hughes isn't playing with them, he adores his pumpkins!
This one was taken a while ago when we posted our kitchen. Just a simple set up of ironstone.
Another one from the kitchen... just a little grouping of my black and white jars and crocks.
This one is just a little fluff for that weird triangle behind our kitchen sink. This one was also taken awhile ago... a fern has now replaced the rosemary tree.
Well, this was fun!! I can't wait to see what the others brought! Now, I want to go spruce up the rest of the house. So, you can join the other party goers here.
