My poor house is so neglected because of the garden! We have been out there every possible minute lately. And everyone seems to have come alive again with the spring weather. We could hardly get anything done this weekend because of all of the socializing. It was so fun to catch up with neighbors and be outside in the fresh air.
As we have been coming in and out and working on the outside, a big pile of miscellaneous items had been collecting on our dining table. So you know what I did? Spent a few minutes the other night creating a vignette out of all of the things that didn't have a place to go.
This was all on the table! Plates, bowls, a carafe, some flatware, and even a shell ball that I found at the thrift store last week.
Pearl-handled knives and a random sterling silver knife were coralled in an old crock.
These little bone spoons were inside a vintage plaid thermos that I bought in Canton, and I didn't discover them for months! They are displayed in a shot glass that Maurie found among some old bottles his dad had collected. I'm thinking that both of those items are pretty old!
I probably couldn't have put this display together if I tried! It was just a happy accident that will make me think a little more creatively about my vignettes in the future.
