Basket, Bottles, & Books

Well the kids went back to school today and the house is so quite! I miss them:(
    I played around this weekend with a new vignette for the coffee table in my living room. 
    A new basket from Pottery Barn filled with the other demijohn I recently purchased along with some of my decorating books, a vintage bottle my mom gave me..or should I say I begged her for;)) and a little touch of greenery to fill an empty spot.
  



 This basket is made so nicely and it's very sturdy. It's part of their Mendoza collection. I have quite a few baskets from PB and have been very happy with the quality.
 



 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very pretty, Martina! That's a very nice basket and just love all you've placed in it! I can imagine how quiet your house is when the kids in school. How I remember those days! I got over it pretty quickly though! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Martina, what a beautiful vignette! The basket is really gorgeous! The demijohn looks so pretty in it! I remember the days of the kids going back to school. I had three little ones and the house was so quite and I had so much time on my hands that I didn't even know what to do with myself! :)

I love the warmth of your arrangements on your coffee table with all the different textures. And you're going to be seeing the same decorating book someday when I show you my coffee table fall vignette! Does that ever happen to you...you blog about something and see something similar on another blog around the same time?

I love that combination you put together! I like how things looked grouped togther in a basket. Makes for easier dusting too! Ha! I know how you feel when the kids go back to school. It takes some getting used to when the house is suddenly "still"!

Sharing Shadymont said...

Very pretty Martina! I'd love to have a demijohn but they are hard to find in our area, and if you do the price is out of my range. (I'm cheap!!)
