Vintage Vases

  Do you have a favorite vase…perfect for filling with fresh cut blooms? I don’t really have one favorite. I really love using all sorts of vintage items as vases for flowers around the house.

Well, I got this fabulous cubby shelf from the sweet ladies at Junkin on Main…painted it white and it’s one of my favorite pieces 🙂 And remember in this post, when I said a Pinterest photo prompted me to rearrange furniture?

A Sofa Table

17

  I know you do this…find a gorgeous photo on Pinterest, and then you find yourself re-arranging the furniture in your whole house, just to create “that look” 😉 Well, yes, sometimes I do that too. So…my sweet kids helped me move a few larger pieces around from the dining room to the family room. […]
