I am not real good at vignettes, but am trying to learn to do better. When you have a friend like Brenda at cozylittlehouse.com who just touches things and they turn into a beautiful vignette, it's a little challenging.
But, I'm learning as I go.
This morning, I started out with the white plate, crown and two birds with crowns and started adding. It became very apparent that I needed some color.
So, I added a vintage rose plate and some red Bakelite topped salt and pepper shakers.
It looks better to me.
I added the precious little framed quote that dear, sweet Becky of sweetcottagedreams.blogspot.com sent me in a package for Christmas. It means so much to me - coming from her.
Thanks Becky! I will always treasure this.
I then, took away the red and added this cute little blue set I have. Does anyone know why I have two different pitchers?
I changed the blues to a darker blue including the Flow Blue platter that was my Mom's, an old vintage lamp, spoon container, gravy bowl and antique silver pieces.
Sorry about the shadows!! We haven't had sun in several days and this is with curtains open and lights on. But, I still get shadows.
Closer to February, I will add some of my Mom's Depression Glass and use it with my big pink heart wreath.
So, here we go, 2013!!
Happy New Year!
Till next time, Judy
