Antique dresser and decorative objects

I love creating little vignettes and I know what I like.  Hard wired, I swear. 

I was the tiresome teenager constantly rearranging furniture – not just in my room but in the whole house if I had the chance (which wasn’t often – my mother had a penchant for baby blue shag and moving her objects d’art was off limits – no matter how offensive her style).

  • The opportunity to reflect my love of black and white with nuggets of neutral is captured in this pic – near the entry way in our home. 
  • Some items are found objects.  Some are keepsakes handed down (the print of the weathered old sailor and the dresser – vintage pieces from grandparents). 
  • I love the punchy black and white floral vase.  I think it cost $2 nearly twenty years ago – salvaged from a clearance pile at Hobby Lobby – but I LOVE it.  The graphic, large scale lotus-like flowers look perfect, to my eye, nestled in this setting. 

Why does this matter?  It makes me happy and I as I pass by this tiny space (dozens of times, every day) I smile.  I know I’m in Vicki’s space.  I’m home, I’m safe and I’m grateful.

Wishing you the same,

-Vicki
