New Year ~ New Vignette

Thank you all for the sweet & comforting comments you left me on the loss of our Toby. They mean so much!
 After finally getting all my Christmas stuff put away I was left with a clean slate, so I want to put things back a little differently. I started with the skirted table in my living room.
 I bought this pretty little majolica dish months ago on ebay and it's been sitting in a drawer ever since.
 Sorry for all the brightness near the window, the snows reflection made it very hard to get good photos.
 Here's what it looked like before...
 Please ignore the short panels, having both air vents there I can't puddle the panels to the floor they would block them. I am thinking of having another piece of fabric added just to bring it down to the floor. When I had the other chairs here it wasn't noticeable.
  I'll be back and show you how how I moved some of the seating around next!
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!

Pretty vignette Martina!I think your curtains look fine too!I get way picky like that when I am taking photos of my home.I see things differently than others because it's my home and I am my own worst critic!

Very sweet vignette, Martina. I like the crown you put in the mix. I didn't even notice the curtain panels until you drew attention to them.

Martina...I am so sorry about Toby. Ahhh - we lost our Sadie this year too. I miss her still. Got a new puppy to help with the void but she isn't the same. You have some beautiful sun coming into your lovely home.

only you notice little things like that. Martina, I was so sad to hear about your beloved Toby. Losing a pet is hard but keeping his memories in heart will help with your sadness. Hugs for you!!

Hi Martina, I love your skirted table! I just ordered a new tablecloth from Ballard and can't wait to get it! About your drapes... you can buy those plastic vent covers that direct the air outward. We did that when we put the new drapes in the Kitchen Hearth room.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Pretty vignette, Martina! Love the crown {I have one just like it!} and the plant. I'm trying to do some different displays, too. Still playing though {and still looking for those things I put away for Christmas decorating that I can't find}.

The Other Me Is Sane said...

my daughter has plastic vent thingys that fit into the heat vents on her floor to direct the air away from the drapes. Just thought this might be available to you.

Love that plate and the lamp next to it!

Kristi said...

Looks beautiful! I love crowns as well and understand the curtain situation very well! I had to do the same in my old house. Sometimes function trumps form!

Moni - Zuhaus at Home said...

Lovely vignette , Martina...love your pretties on top of the table!

Divine Theatre said...

Maybe some long fringe would look pretty on the drapes? I love every last detail!

I am visiting from Have a Daily Cuppa:)

Maria Elena said...

Martina, your vignette looks so pretty! It is so hard to decorate after taking the Holiday decor down. You are doing an excellent job! The green plate looks gorgeous next to the greenery and crown. Very, very pretty!

Kelly said...

I love your new vignette! Majolica is so pretty. I can't beleive you had that cute plate in a drawer somewhere! LOL! I noticed that pretty crown too. Love that!

Audrey @ Neverending Decorating said...

That's so pretty, I love it. I know how you feel about the drapes, I wish I could puddle mine, they were actually designed that way, but they rest on vents...what was the builder thinking??? I ended up buying the 96 inchers and hanging them all the way up to the ceiling which is a good thing...they draw the eye up and make the ceilings look higher. Have a good one.

Olive said...

The bunny is darling. Not to mention the crown. It is oddly over 60 degrees here-I will take some snow:}

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

What a lovely vignette. Love the bunny plate.

Tammy @ A Walk in the Countryside said...

Your vignette is so lovely! I have a set of bunny plates but mine are a little different for yours. I might need to pull mine out and display some! Blessings, Tammy

Very pretty vignette. You've got such a good eye for combining objects. I have that crown and never thought of using it on a side table. Thanks for sharing Martina!

Everything is beautiful. You have excellent taste. (I didn't even notice your short curtains). Found you through Share Your Cup.

Jann Olson said...

Hi Martina, I really like the new look. The majolica plate is lovely and will carry so nicely into Spring. I know what you mean about the brihtness of the snow. But boy do I love that sunshine! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann
