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.
I'm joining in the fun this week with
Artie @ Color Outside The Lines
Cindy @ My Romantic Home
Thanks so much friends for hosting these party's.
To see lots of great ideas click the
links and visit everyone.
I get the greatest ideas when I
visit with all of you.
Have a wonderful weekend

I could spend some time looking inside your china is so pretty. It is always one of the first things I notice in a home. I think they tell a lot about the person and I just love them. A white china cabinet always catches my eye. I like the liquor bottle in the cabinet..great idea. Deb =^..^=x5

Deb said...

Me again. Forgot to mention that I am going to link your blog to my post to show some of my dishaholic friends your cabinet. I see we share a love of white dishes too.

Sending a sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm! Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Yes, Cape May is just wonderful - you will love it. Try eating at 410 Bank Street - very eclectic and always delicious! Your vignettes are just lovely - it must be so wonderful to see beautiful things where ever you look in your home. As far as the jarred beets, I agree with you totally - they are too beautiful to leave hidden in a cabinet! Ciao, bella!

The Charm of Home said...

This is beautiful. I love the use of the piano shawl. Very pretty vignettes. I like your use of red and white too. On your question about my dishes in the "Bittersweet & Brooksticks" post, I think they are older. Maybe 1960's until 1990's. The pattern is Johnson's Brothers Coaching Scenes. Thanks for stopping by.

Love the pictures and the way you framed the vignettes. There is something so tantalizing about looking into peoples china cabinets.
