In the Hallway



Well, I am still working on the dining room chairs and I ran out of the jute cord so now I have to wait on that to come in. When my sister was here a couple weeks ago she mentioned that I haven't shared the vignette on the little chest in the hallway as she was looking around. It's only been like this since Christmas which I guess is long for me.

For those new here this is a little hallway that runs between the front sitting room and the great room in the back and the powder room and master bedroom open to this.

I just used things from around the house and literally threw this together and haven't given it much thought since except to keep it dusted. Gosh, I hate dusting.

The basket is filled with a few old books, an antler that you can only see the tip of and a turtle shell. See, I told you just stuff I threw together. The ironstone is a Redcliff piece I found at a Restore a couple years ago for ten dollars.

The cute transferware sugar bowl with the topiary and bird  is from Nancy's etsy shop. I have had it since last year.



In case you have not seen this bird lamp, the last gazillion times I have shared it, it basically stays in this spot. I bought it years ago at a shop going out of business. I have seen this lamp around in stores on and off since then so if you want one keep an eye out and you may spot one. I added the fringe to the shade.



So for now this is how it looks, but we know it will eventually change. After all spring is right around the corner.

It's hair spruce up day at the salon.
Be sure and come back tomorrow for my guest blogger's favorite room.

  13. Wow, that chest is beautiful. It reminds me of one my mother has, handmade by her great grandfather sometime in the 1800s.

  16. Very pretty Kim. I love having small lights in my home that I can flip on in the evening. I like the soft glow. The bird lamp is especially cute. I don't know why I love the little animal stuff so much? That, and your squirrel. You've got the cutest squirrel, I just love him :)

  19. Love the wire basket with books and turtle shell. I ran into a large turtle shell at a garage sale. They wanted six hundred dollars for it. Not for me. xo, olive

  20. So, SO charming! What is your little mini-tureen (or is it a sugar bowl?) on the books? Is it Red Cliff or some other maker?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Very pretty. Of course since I love white pitchers...my eyes are on your wall shelf and all those wonderful pieces. No doubt you will make changes as soon as we have a warm day, but it really looks pretty for spring as is!

  22. Very pretty, and Im glad you described the flow of the house, it makes it easier to piece all the rooms together and the lay out.
