It was definitely unique looking, and I filled it with treasures. Architectural & natural elements, silver, & my baby shoes, silver cup and baby brush. The top holds candles in thrift store found glass holders, and a brown transferware vase that's holding pheasant feathers from my hunting trip with dad! I found the mirror above at a flea sale -- perfect size and shape for above the switch plate. For Christmas it was decorated with my Santa collection and vintage ornaments and "snow", and fresh holly from outside was in the vase.
The books are part of a fun collection I started. I am searching for books with titles that reflect our family! I put a pink copy of "The Luckiest Girl" in my kids' room!
The above vignette is one of my favorites! It's silhouettes of my 2 girls done several years ago, and in the center is a gift one of my dear friends gave me...a "sisters" flashcard from 1927! She backed it with soft black velvety fabric and put it in a vintage looking frame. I love it!
I found this frame at the flea market, and originally thought I'd paint it. But when I got it home, it looked perfect with the bronze-brown of some metal scroll-y things hanging in the hall too, so I left the frame as is...for now! I can't decide what to put in it. A mocha colored mat with 4x6 picture (oval shaped), OR a little clip just stuck on the wall to change recent pictures? Leave me a comment and tell me what you would do? :)
