Vintage Vignette & Free Download For You

This is a repost of my post, dated November 16, 2010, connecting to Chari's Sunday Favorites at Happy to Design
Other Business:   Don't Miss the $30 Gift Card 
Vintage Vignette & Free Download For You

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 piece that looks somewhat like  a Lace Hanky,   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 needed 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.

Hugs, Honey


  1. I love your pretty birdcage vingette and I'm sure your ancestors both real and adopted appreciate it too.

    Very lovely.


  2. Seeing the picture of your sweet Grandma again made me smile

  3. I'm like Ann, I love seeing the way you incorporated your sweet grandmother into your everyday life. The birdcage and all are just gorgeous. Thanks for the image. I'm sure many will create beautiful things with it.

  4. Hi Honey...

    So happy to see you for the Sunday Favorites repost party again this week, my friend! I love your vintage's beautiful and sooo romantic! Love, love, LOVE your birdcage! I was just wondering if the rusty roof came with the the birdcage or if you painted it? Love it! Loved all of the sweet momentos as well...the old black and white photos just add such a sweet ambiance! Thank you so much for sharing this great post with definitely deserved a second showing, my friend! Ohhh...and how very sweet of you to share your vintage cabinet card with us!

  8. Just love the way you added the vintage photos to your vignette! And I'm a rust lover too. I even put out one of my birdcages to "rust up" a little *winks* Thanks for sharing that wonderful old photo of the couple....I'm brainstorming what I could do with it...hmmmmmm Maybe a pillow?.....

  9. Pretty vignette. Especially nice for the adopted relatives! Ever think how you would feel if you were them, or their descendants? I do!
    Surely beats hanging up at Cracker Barrel. This is so much homier.

  10. Very pretty! A wonderful way to display vintage photos! ♥

  11. I love the layers and the pix of anybody's old relatives always make me smile! Great use of a small display area with lots to look at!
