I noticed another little vignette today. This is the top of my bureau in the dressing room area of the master bedroom. We don’t own this house, we are merely its caretakers. But still, it’s quite wonderful to live in even though it’s in sort of a grand-old-dame condition.
The dressing room area is sort of like a hallway that leads into the master bedroom. Adjacent to the hallway area are two double-door closets. There’s a window that you can see on the right, and space for this bureau. As I was walking by it the other day, this scene caught my eye. I lit the candle because it looked nicer that way.
Other than that, I left everything cluttered like it was.
Left to right is a large beaded glass tealight from Pottery Barn; One of my rose prints in a little white frame; A print I won in a contest on someone’s blog; A framed photo of Ralph, the beloved border collie we owned before George came along; a lamp from Strasburg Pottery in PA; and my Oakley sunglasses that I’ve been searching high and low for.
So this is where they were all along! It’s funny what you see when you open up your picture files and really look.
I remember buying this tealight at the holidays for one of my nieces, who was a college sophomore at the time. I changed my mind when I began thinking it would look better in my own place. Besides, I was sure she’d have rather had that Sephora gift certificate I ended up giving her.
Is there a spot in your home that you’d like to share? A little something that catches your eye whenever you walk by? If so, post a photo of it and tell us why you like it. Come back and leave a comment with your link and we can come by and visit. It will be fun.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
