" Vintage in the Mix "



I decided to marry two of my projects

together and create a romantic vignette

and stage them in two settings.





Mr. Dior and I were playing house with

my sweet dresser that you

remember from my One man's trash post

and my recent Dollar Store Elegance 

 when one of the dresser's drawers fell apart

 he added the shelf and top for me.





Adding some fresh flowers

was a nice trade from

my usual obsession with twigs.






{ my treasured vintage suitcase }





Vintage glass ware and trays {Goodwill}

Old coca cola crate {Yardsale}

Silver platters {Dollar Store Project}





On the other side of the room

I mixed in some old white ironstone

along with other vintage platters.





Then used the shelf

for some extra storage space.





This dresser will be perfect

for a small holiday buffet.

Basket and vintage glass ware {Goodwill}

Vintage lamp {Yard sale}





This week I will be linking up with

the lovelies at my favorite

weekly parties...




Beyond the Picket Fence Inspiration Friday




Have a beautiful and blessed week!
XOXO

Beautiful post, as always....my friend.
I miss talking to you! SO much to talk about!! I had hoped to call you this past week, but with all we've had going on back here on the east coast...it's been crazy, to say the least.
I have quite a week catching up on orders and getting my retail shop ready for the holidays. I don't recall being this busy--ever.
I'm calling you next week. You're at the TOP of my list!
Hope all is well with you and your family.
We have so much to talk about.... :)
Much love to you, Lisa xoxo
