Looks like some farm animals have been finding their way into my home. From horses to cows and now to sheep. Here is a new vignette in my foyer with my new found sheep that I purchased from the antique mall a few weeks ago.


I thought for fifteen dollars, why not.

I set it on top of two vintage leather books. Love using books as risers. The one on top is the one purchase from Franklin when we went to our son's.

I have been on the lookout for a decent looking sheep. I wanted a fairly good size and I wanted it sort of old looking.

As you can see it is made of concrete. I like the texture and patina of that.

My bromeliads have been thinned out some since they were dying and I added moss to fill it in.
The corbel in the back is also concrete and I had it put away. I brought it back out and did a white paint wash over it with my Old White chalk paint.



Added my boxwood topiary that is also in a concrete pot to the mix. Did not realize I was adding concrete pieces here and there. Just happened that way.


This vignette is on the chest I painted more than once. Love the chippy layers.

Here is a close up.

Have any farm animals in your house?

  1. Kim, your sheep is just fabulous. I totally love him. All of your concrete pieces look wonderful together and the black lamp and cache pot are the perfect accent. Gorgeous vignette. I adore that mirror also. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  2. I have a dear friend who collects sheep, Your is old and has a lot of charm! I like the "riser" books. I usually use books to raise lamps.
    It is so interesting to see how you put all of your beautiful things together.

  17. I have lots of farm animals in my house--mainly sheep, because I collect them! It's a natural for someone who works with wool so much. Yours is quite nice!
    Best,

  18. Love this! You do vignettes so well. They are not my strong point, unfortunately, so I always marvel when you and others make it look so effortless and natural.

    I don't have any farm animals in the house. Do horses in the backyard count? We've got plenty of those! lol ;)

  31. Hey, Kim. I've always visited you every once in a while; and today, I see that little adorable baby on the right... Leila. I clicked on her photo, because I was totally enamored with her gorgeous eyes :) BUT, I see that it had something to do with Facebook and, I'm sorry, but I don't have a Facebook page. I'm probably the last person on Earth to NOT have a Facebook page. But I just wanted to say that whoever this child is, related to you, she is absolutely the most adorable thing. That face! Those blue eyes!!! Please give that little Leila a kiss for me. Man, what I wouldn't give to have a little granddaughter who looked like that! (I will WAIT though! My son is only 20!!!) :)
    Best,
    Gloria

  34. I have a thing for sheep so I covet that cute odd little sheep. I also collect them and have a few here and there. I also have one cute little iron ram that is used as a door stop. Love the vignette! Hmm...think I will paint my topiary pot antique white now that I see yours.

  35. I really like this vignette, Kim. And the white wash over the corbel is perfection.

    The only farm animals in my house are roosters.....on my screened in porch.

  36. I really like the little lamb - seems very cozy on top of those books. :-) No farm animals, but I did add an owl to the house this week (maybe that could be a farm animal - hanging out in the barn or something). I will share on your Wow Us Wednesday. :-)

  37. I love you new sheep...I too have been hunting for one for my own home under the same criteria as you..Large and old and looks good.

    I loved seeing your chest again...You did such a fab job of it and the door in lays are divine.

    Blessings Kelsie

  45. What a great addition to your 'farm family'! I love that lamp, where did you get it?

  46. "I have been on the lookout for a decent looking sheep"

    For some reason that sentence made me laugh! I do love it though and the only farm animals in my house are a pair of crystal roosters in the china cabinet.
