Diningroom Vignettes

~ ~ Hello Friends~ ~
Thanks for stopping in today.
I'm sharing a few little vignettes from the diningroom.
The first one is on the buffet.
I love to decorate the top of the china cabinet with
my antique piano shawl. I drape it over the corner to soften it.
The colors don't match anything in my house
but I adore it so it's staying.
I have had it for so long I don't
remember where I got it.

A few sweet stacks of dishes on lace trimmed shelves.

Shells I picked up on the beach in Delaware.

This is an odd grouping.
The delicate fine china salt and pepper
with a few jars of my canned red beets.
The beets were so pretty I didn't
want to hide them in a cabinet
so I put them on display.

A crystal bowl filled with dried red rose petals
and pink sequined hearts!

Why hide the liquor bottles when they are so pretty?
I love to add unusual items to my vignettes,
don't you?

Another shot of the top of the china.
A good look at my french chicken border too.

Pretty keys on a red ribbon.

Red Poppys

~ ~ ~Hello Friends~ ~ ~

I just love red poppys, how about you?
So bright and cheerful.

Found this big bunch at Good Will for less than $3!

Found a good read there too.

So I pulled out a shopping bag I have had around
for some time and made a big arrangement.

It looks so pretty on the chair in the diningroom.
So now what will I do with it?

I really need the chair so it can't stay there.

How about here?
This looks pretty doesn't it?
Thanks for stopping by and for
sharing my thought process.
