My Back Entry and Good News

6.25.2015

I show y'all the foyer quite often and the vignettes I create for it, but we don't use the front door for everyday life we use the door to the garage. I thought I would share the vignette that we see on a daily basis. This vignette has been this way since Christmas. I know, can you believe it?

I hung this ugly bird picture here, yes I call it ugly, along with a weathered lamp, vintage clock, and a tray of collected bottles in the color of the sea.

    View from the kitchen.

The color of these vintage bottles remind me of sea glass. 

I gathered them together on my old silver tray.

I pick these bottles up at flea markets when I find them at a good price. I think the most I have paid is $15 and that was for the large one.

This lamp that I painted a few years ago used to reside in one of the guest rooms.

I have a stack of lampshades that I can use to easily change the look of my lamps. I like how this black one works with the black frame and the black handles on the chest.

So even though this vignette has been here for months it works well for summer.



Now for the good news!

  2. Too funny. In our dining room we have an antique oak chest and I have several from my collection of green bottles on it. Used to have them on an old brass try, but removed it for now. Our front door is used by "company" only. LOL

  4. I love the glass bottles. Bird picture is, um, interesting. :-) Our garage entry opens into the laundry room in the city house and kitchen at the farm house. The laundry room is hopeless...too small to do anything extra to. I like the kitchen at the farm though so no big deal there. I'd love to have a spot to make all pretty like yours.

  18. Oh my gosh Kim! I got my good laugh this morning hearing you call that picture the "ugly bird picture". Yes, he is not the most handsome... but doesn't that make him unique and fun!

    1. Sorry about those, but they are a necessary evil. You should be able to click on the x or down arrow in the upper right corner of an ad and it will go down.
