Layering Up

With a great part of the country locked in the embrace of
extreme cold, we are all "layering up" to stay warm.
With that in mind, I wanted to carry that theme into my decor
today and do a little layering inside.
I found all three of these items at the Scott's Antique Market
this past weekend and while playing around with them, I did
a little "layering up".
My first layer is a 1936 "Old Cafe" pink Hocking depression
glass shallow candy dish. 


This vintage dish has a flared rim and little tab handles.

The second layer is a sweet little lace doily with
what looks to me like tulips and tiny tatted flowers
around the edges.  At least I'm pretending they are tulips
since I'm longing for spring. 

Next up is a darling candle holder with a little side handle.
It is the perfect shade of soft pink.

Lest you think I'm "pink crazy", it really is a rather recent
development, but I must admit, is steadily getting worse.

And last, but not least is a lovely strand of pearls.

Everyone knows that pearls are an absolute necessity

when "layering up".

Whatever keeps you warm or warms your heart is perfect
for layering.  With what and how are you "layering up" lately?

A beautiful share. I love this layering that you have shared today. The pink dish is so pretty and then with the lace doily and the candlestick, how gorgeous. Then you added those pearls and they just really made that vignette pop. Just beautiful.
