A Little Vignette~~~~

This is a little table next to my bed. It holds the lamp, of course, and some of my favorite books down below. At the moment, it also has some of my favorite thrift store finds on it. The frame, started out gold, I painted it white and then I put some fuschia paint over that, and then I wiped it off. I like the way it looks. The little square box was a dark grey resin and pretty, but the grey had to go. So, I painted it white and then put a few little touches of gold on it. I love the way it looks now. I made the little rose bouquet many years ago and once in a while, I have to get the canned air out and give it a good dusting. The little china dish was a find at the thrift store.

The little plate was a gift from one of my clients when I was a hairdresser. She was from England and had gone back for a visit. I thought it was a lovely thing that she brought me back a beautiful English Bone China dish. I think of her when I look at it. She was a gracious lady and I enjoyed doing her hair and visiting with her, every week for many years.

This little picture is really a greeting card that someone framed. I love it!
And lookie who escaped from the picture and is enjoying her new found freedom........... I named her Sally 'cause she's from the Salvation Army.
These are a few of my favorite things!
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Jean, I love your nightstand vignette! Oh my gosh, it all looks so beautiful! I can't believe how fantastic that card looks framed, and Sally does look like she just hopped out of the scene. That is darling, and I love how you came up with her name!

Also, thanks so much for your kind comments on the women's shelter post. That is wonderful that you'll be contacting them! Thank you!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
