I've been re-arranging some more. . .if only you could see the rest of the room--it is TERRIBLE. I have an antiques dealer coming on Tuesday to sort through some things and hopefully unload some of my overgrown collection to make room for new treasures.
I quickly grew tired of my re-done mantel, plus I had my dining room table covered with stuff from rearranging furniture, and saw items paired together I hadn't ever grouped before, so I re-did it. I promise my big living room reveal is coming soon, but I work slowly in small steps....if only I could be a full-time interior designer and devote all my time to all things beautiful!
Apothecary jars--I simply love them! Here one is filled with spools of twine and the other is full of bone and mother of pearl buttons. In the center of the bow on the jar of twine is a vintage trefoil rhinestone brooch by Weiss, and on the other jar is a very regal rhinestone brooch off of a Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic stocking from Target on after-Christmas clearance.

More garden items indoors--I love crusty urns and garden statuary! Isn't she a beauty? Bust: Marshalls, Urn: eBay, Roses: GardenRidge.
I adore these empire cage wall sconces! Look at all the detail--I might electrify them, for now they are just hanging on the wall.
I love this very French and very Vintage clock. It is made out of small bits of mother of pearl held together by some sort of resin material. I've had it for about a year, regrettably I passed up one nearly identical--it was teal....a few months back.
Who needs to know the flowers are fake? Oops....
I am forever changing things! Right now my house is a DISASTER!!! I'd be ashamed for anyone to see it right now. But, alas, you can CROP photos!
Coming soon--recent yard sale finds, Dining Room reveal--I'm having a custom table with benches built for the room! Catch you all soon!
