Here are some more photos of my guest room, this time concentrating on the vignette on top of the bookcase! I kept with my limited color palate of Pink, Green, and White to help it feel more serene. Utilizing found objects such as mother of pearl buttons and vintage embroidery thread make great filler for oh so chic apothecary jars. The tissue paper faux flowers are made from vintage sewing patters and are edged with glitter for extra sparkle. Follow the link below to see more!
I love all things French, if you didn't already know.
When I saw this German glass glitter encrusted Eiffel Tower at a favorite shop, I knew it had to be mine--but the price tag suggested otherwise. 3 years later, I was able to get one that had been lost in the shop for next to nothing during a huge sale they were having to clear out smalls to begin renovations.
I have another smaller Eiffel Tower on a stack of old books, as well.
The glare makes it hard to see, but it says "Paris" on it.
Can you ever have too many mother of pearl buttons??? Oh--just you wait and see. Here's a hint--my garden urn turned coffee table is now FULL of them!!! I promise to post photos here soon!
I just love all the soft pinks and green.
My friend, Brenda, made all of these sewing pattern flowers. The are all wired to a clip so you can put them any where. They tend to end up on a Christmas tree, but once it comes down, they scatter to another vignette around the house! The tatting was made by my great-great grandmother.
A rather large tiara crowns the vignette and the sparkle of the rhinestones keeps your eyes moving.
Here's one last look. Check back soon for more goodies! Feel free to pin away!
