A Gift for YOU and Vintage Vignette

This Vintage Tabletop is in a guest bedroom, which is also quite vintage.  The bed,
dresser and side table are all Antiques, and live along with a few other goodies.
Elements of the arrangement  include a White Birdcage with a rusted peaked roof…We all
seem  afflicted with a  bit of Rust Love.

Add layered crocheted pieces, some passed down from family
and some acquired.

     Throw some Magnolias and rolled sheet music into the Birdcage.  Tuck in a vintage crocheted piecr or Lace hankie.

Hang  a Pearl
Necklace and add a couple of Vintage Bottles   

    Don’t forget the Old Wedding Ring Pillow!

To complete the arrangement add   Cherished Vintage Family Photos along with a few
Adopted Relatives who need a Good   Home and Someone to Love them.

    All reflected in the Vintage Dresser Mirror, and Voila!

Since I am a new to Blogging,  anxious to make friends  and receive your comments,  here’s
a little GIFT from Me to  You  Please use it in your Art,  and show me what you do with
it, si vous s'il vous plaît.   (To be honest  since my college French is as rusty as  the
birdcage,  I used Google Translate.)

  Vintage Cabinet Card

I'm relatively new to this wonderful Community as well and it has exceeded all of my expectations. I'm commenting here rather than your most recent Post because for some reason it wouldn't load the comment section??! *puzzled look LOL* I strolled through your delightful Posts and loved that Piano Shawl and the Architectural Photographs... I too have a passion for Architectural elements, I find them as beautiful and interesting as any Art Gallery.

    I could sure use one of those Silver Cleaning Fairies at this ole' House! *wink*
