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,
