I've had a slow weekend and it's given me the opportunity to really sit in my house and start to settle it from a place of joy vs. distress. Let me tell you--it's been nice!
So while I'm nowhere near a big reveal--hence the large mirror on the floor in the picture below--I am at least able to start sharing some DETAILS. These cloches were an amazing find this weekend at only $9.99 each--pedestal & dome!
I went through my goodies and created a centerpiece for our dining table.
Until I make a plethora of treats to fill these, I thought it would be fun to fill them with things that make me smile: wine corks, giant pearls, vintage doily & burlap wrapped candle, and a LOVE trinket from my friend!Our kitchen has large open space above our cabinets. I instantly wondered what on earth I'd do to fill the space appropriately & reflected our style.
Thanks to the Pasadena Rose Bowl & my friend, I had all the pieces I needed.
This little lovely, the cart that is, came from an impromptu spree to my local antique store.
I woke up this morning feeling like, "I have to go today!"
I found 7 vintage orphans that now belong with me!
We have a large and beautiful antique kitchen table space around it that has just felt incomplete.
When I saw this, I knew...I needed a mini bar!

Well, until the next several projects shape up, this is what is new for today!
