I had fun today making up this small arrangement. The basket has two antique spreads, small angel, and a small vintage looking picture. I decided it needed a bow, brown silk. I'm thinking about giving this to one of my special friends and putting dove chocolate in with it. I liked this vignette so much, I thought I would use it for my banner.

Cindy at My Romantic Home is having a party. The center piece I did was things found around the house. I used an antique table cloth bunched up, a serving tray, a dome from my great room,and flowers and greenery, I borrowed from another arrangement. I also found the heart box at a thrift store and put it in the dome. This was a fun project!

Well guys, I'm going to decorate my office and take you through the process. The black piece is my inspiration piece. I'm doing my office in a french black look. The black piece is a hand painted piece by Pulaski Furniture. I will be painting some pieces to add to the room. The chair below is a antique french chair that I will paint black and recover, found this at the thrift store. I also will be painting a antique mirror bought at an auction. As you know by now I have a log home. My decorating is different than most log homes. I love to decorate in old world, french, farmhouse decor. The painted furniture and dark woods accent the logs. Love wrought iron also.

The lamp I found at a goodwill, can you believe it. They had a pair and another lady bought the other one. I wish I could have gotten them both. This is a old lamp, with a new lamp shade from Big Lots. You can find almost anything at that store. The tassel came from Tuesday Morning. A tassel just dresses up a lamp don't you think?

I love these plates, I found these several months ago while I was thrifting and antiquing. They are stamped on the back old rose, John Maddocks and sons England. I thought they would look good in the cabinet I bought. I would like to purchase more of these but can't find them.
