I’ve been working on my foyer vignette. The foyer table is one we have had for some time and store all our old photos in..those mega amounts of photos that are on paper. It is quite literally loaded with a few albums and box’s of photos. Our thinking has always been in the event of a fire and there’s time shove this table right out the front door. So this old cabinet table remains our foyer table! One day maybe I’ll tackle the table itself, but for now I’m just trying to keep the vignette on top pretty.
It was difficult to get good photos today as it was somewhat overcast so I hope you’ll bear with me. The entrance is the first thing people see when they enter so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I came across the lamp a few years back. It’s a pineapple lamp of course!
And pineapples mean, ” WELCOME “
And here is the rest of the vignette
Of course all good southerns display hydrangeas in the summer
And when company comes I like to greet them w/fragrant candles in this electric candle warmer
So sorry for the glare on my tin plate. Yes, you read that right, it’s tin. It was ordered online from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in N.Y. The design is called the “Duke of Gloucester” Pattern taken from an English Worchester soup plate made about 1780. I saw it some time ago in a magazine and had to order one too!
And these newest little cuties were picked up today at the $1.00 store. I may give them a glaze soon, but they are right cute for now an look just adorable perched up there on this small butter plate stand. I purchased this at an antique store for $1.00. It’s basically a plate glued onto a glass candle holder. Cute!
The mirror I’ve also had for some time. It’s nothing special but it fits the space nicely and I can display my Bradford Exchange plates around it perfectly. Speaking of plates, I started collecting these when I was a young girl in high school. I had a part time job and wanted to invest in these. I love Norman Rockwell and these were something that interested me quite a bit. I never did complete the set, but I do love the ones I have. Take a look and see if you agree.
These are part of the “American Dream Collection”. Each plate depicts those momentous times in life.
Well, that’s the way I have it set up today. It’s still not exactly what I would like this table to look like but it’s getting closer. I am open to any and all suggestions and am linking up with Marty today at
