Well my summer of change continues....
I am now on to the Living Room... I may need help.
When I get on a roll.... it is a bit crazy I confess.
So today's post is actually in the corner of my office. The sweet antique wash stand was being used as a side table in the Living Room. I switched it out and now it is in a new vintage style display.
Is there any more classic than milk glass and antiques furniture?
I love my little wash stand and its lovely patina.
It was my Momma's for years and I snatched on to it.
The stand was in my bedroom for years, then last fall I moved it to the Family Room. It never quite looked right in there, but it was the right size. So now I have removed a chair and have a new table too. So it fits better in the office now. I love how bright and pretty everything looks in this corner now.
I have been on a roll with collections lately and trying to display things together more. I moved all the transfer ware to the kitchen and now am starting to get my antique crystal things out again.
I had so many of my things in the china cabinet. I am glad it is now on to a new home, but miss the storage and displays. Although this area was the dining room and now is the office, I miss having my good things displayed in the open.
Little white touches like antique pearls and more glassware as a plant container.
I little pillowcase I made to fit the towel bar.
Nothing expensive... just yard sale finds... but so lovely together.
I am reminded of my grandmother with these things. she had so many milk glass pieces.
On the walls I have a pink rose theme going with some vintage art.
I am slowly going thru the house and tinkering.
I know we will be having a large party in October for my oldest's Sweet 16---
then the holidays will be here soon after!
I am doing the 'pitch-sell-donate' dance in the basement and closets.
I have been in the organizing mood and ready to get rid of some things (so I can buy more!)
School starts here in a few days (Aug 4th) I cannot believe how fast the summer has went.
