I was sitting at my dining room table working on my work laptop and couldn't help but be fascinated with all the different designs and textures in this vignette on my hutch.
Some of this silver was recently cleaned and some of it is still waiting its turn, but even so they play well together.
Textures intrigue me. I love working and decorating with color, but textures are fast becoming my favorite way to display and design.
I love the combination of the different patterns of silver and glass together.
The backdrop for this vignette is a lovely old chippy corbel that has a beauty all its own.
I would love to know its history, how old it is, where it lived originally, and where it has been in between then and now. Age has been kind to this chippy old corbel and left it more beautiful from its years of living.
I purchased this piece of pottery at a barn sale last year. It isn't old, and I'm probably its first owner, but it has a look of age and history that I find appealing and beautiful.
Love the roses that so beautifully adorn this simple pot.
Finding beauty in the simple things. I hope I can age as beautifully as these lovely time worn items.
