It all started with the Frederick Cooper lamp.  It was an estate sale
find and if I told you what I paid for it you will scream!!  It was $5.00, but
that price did not include the shade which was about $55.00.  OK, still a bargain
in my book.  I gathered a few of my blue and white pieces and then added
blue books, both old and new.

This is the first time I have used books at the breakfast table and I
really loved the change and the interest that books evoked in
this setting along with the blue and white.

As for this muffineer, I purchased it in England on one
of my buying trips when I had my store.  Guess what,
it never made it to the store for someone to purchase.
It originates from Scotland, it is registered and it is from
the late 1700's.  I adore it.  It is filled with powdered sugar.

I had no flowers to work with this weekend and thought I would
use the Algerian Ivy stems that I was trying to root.  I loved how
the green leaves interplayed with this vignette.

So simple, so interesting and such a nice change having a few
items that had been in cabinets, brought out into the open
and enjoyed. . . . . and my husband loved it too!

Mary Anne isn't it amazing how small changes can brighten up a space! Love your choices!

I hope you will come and see the feature I have on an amazing sculptor.

Karena: So happy you stopped by. Yes, I love changes at the table we sit at everyday. My vignettes have become a weekly thing now and I am always challenging myself as to what will be next.

Today, I just had to 'go Spring' I will post it tomorrow. Same vignette, different kick!
