Beautiful Monday

It is the ultimate perfect day here.  No wind.  Temps. in the 70’s, the birds are happy and singing.  Just one of those days where you’re  happy to be outside enjoying nature. 

I finished up some sewing over the weekend.  I was totally out of thread so had to make a run to Hancock’s.  I mention this because Tuesday Morning is right next door. I was NOT going in!  NO WAY!  But that mischievous me, the one who loooves to shop, just couldn’t help herself!  And I scored.

These cute numbered locking jars.  $3.99 each!!   I couldn’t resist.


This cute basket with bottles.  I had been wanting some of these bottles with the locking tops for awhile.  I can’t wait to either serve pink lemonade out of them or fill each one with a pretty daisy.  LOVE them!

So……these two new purchases called for a new vignette.  Of course!  Just so happened that I had a little display cabinet needing a new place to live.

I moved it to the dining room…..and had a blast filling it with goodies.

Collecting milk glass has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time.  It goes everywhere!

I had no idea what a perfect match this little shelf was to my pine vintage chest.  Perfect!  And I’ve had both pieces for years.  Duh…..

My little dogs found a new place to live.

It had never occurred to me to move this little shelf downstairs and use it somewhere else.  In fact, I had contemplated selling it.  Sometimes, we just get stuck in that decorating loop and forget to step outside of our comfort zone.  Try it!  You may  feel like you just redecorated your entire room!  I sure do.  And my new vignette makes me smile every time I walk by it!

Joining White Wednesday’s 100th post.  Congratulations

  1. Hi Denise,
    I saw those cute jars at Tuesdays and didn't buy any! Kick myself!!! I love how yours look inside the shelf. The entire vingette is so lovely.


  2. I love when that happens, Denise! You find something in one room and it actually works really good in another room. That's why I like to shop my house first {although a trip to Tuesday Morning is always a treat}! : )

  3. Those two pieces look like they were made for each other. I love that bottle basket thingy. Guess I might need to make a run to Tuesday Morning! Beautiful display. You have the touch.

  4. You SCORED girl!! Good job! LOVE the vignette--what a happy accident that the two pieces go togther. Thanks for sharing..I'm inspired, now!

  5. adore what you came up with for your hutch!! so cute!

  8. Love the vignette!! Those locking bottles and jars!!! Wow! I didn't see them at my store at all. Must go look now!! Sigh!!
