~Angels, Books and Memories~

With all the snow we've been having, I've stayed inside re-working vignettes and moving "tons" of things around, working towards a more clean look around our home. The top of the antique dresser was first on the agenda of things to do this morning.

I've gone crazy over silver trays since my visit to Atchison last fall. This tray was purchased at the Enchanted Frog an antique store chalked full of some great things. I think I gave $14.00 for it.
I try to use books in almost any vignette I put together, whether old or new; I feel they add character and a bit of nostalgia.
To the right of the mirror you'll find a sconce holding a plate, hidden from view a statue of a rabbit, to the left of the sconce is another vintage mirror. This area is a work in progress. As soon as it's complete I'll share the whole room with you. I know I've been saying that for a long time, but until I find just the right thing to hang on the wall, it will remain "unfinished".

The little red checked chair found in the corner is my "official" reading chair.
This is a picture of my mother and her sister, I've had for many years. I don't have many pictures of my family, those I do are cherished. I wish I had the love for a camera at a young age that I do now.

Until next time....
