Late Summer Vignette Using a New Vintage Find

8.11.2015

Yesterday I shared a favorite antiques shop in Destin, Florida. I told y'all some things may have come home with me. Well, of course they did. My first find inspired me to change the vignette in the foyer since the flowers I shared in the summer tour died long time ago and this vignette will transition into fall. 

The confit pot is my new find from the shop. These can be quite pricey, but when I saw the price on this large one I just had to have it.

When these are in good shape without a break they can run well over $300. In fact they had a larger one in perfect shape for over $400. So when this one was priced at $175 I grabbed it. A broken part doesn't deter me.

You can't see it can you? 

I kept the large piece of coral since it adds great texture.

Instead of the pedestal, I used before, I pulled out some old books and placed the ironstone food mold  filled with these balls found on my trip to Tybee Island back in the spring.

The large green bottle has been replaced with my large amber one. I just love when the sun hits this.




This will last a few weeks until I decide to start adding fall decor. I'm not quite ready to let go of summer yet even though I am ready for cooler temps.

Have anything new to share?
Then come join Wow Us Wednesdays tonight at 7 ET.
See y'all there.

  1. This is so lovely and elegant, Kim! The amber demijohn is gorgeous and I love the way you're using the ironstone mold. Of course, you have fabulous old books that add wonderful texture. And the confit pot is just beautiful in this setting. Love this vignette!!

  3. Thanks for sharing. I love your style and your talent for making beautiful still life compositions. In my view still lifes add that little bit of something an intriguing and sophisticated house needs!

  4. I agree that the imperfections add character! I still want some of those "balls". I wish someone knew what they are! LOL So not ready for summer to end and it will feel like summer for quite a while around here. Seems like once fall hits, the rest of the year just SPEEDS on by. Like you though, I am ready for it to be a bit cooler and less humid, although this has not been one of our worst summers.

  6. Great find!...I think the colors you have there in the vignette are great Fall colors....love the gold and amber and the red in the pomegranates. Just a switcheroo with the coral and Fall is there!...The chip in the confit pot just adds character and says it was well used with love!

  11. Glad you found some room in the SUV to bring home some treasures, Kim. When I was in Destin, I flew. I was scrambling to find a box store to ship my treasures.
    Where there's a will, there's a way! ;-)

  13. So pretty. Love all of it. Thanks for reminding me that it is well worth it to spend $175 for a classic piece that you will love for years to come.

    Sometime if you feel like it, I would love to read a post about how and where you store all your many beautiful treasures!

  20. Beautiful confit pot and vignette, Kim! I love all the texture and your scale is very pleasing to the eye. :)

  21. Gorgeous pictures and simply love the color of your pot.

    I would have stood there for a good long time, just holding it. As a potter in a former life, I love the age of such pots, the hand-pulled handles, the chips and stains from ages of holding foodstuffs. Some even have lingering scents, some have maker's marks and some are just mysteriously 'ancient' and interesting. Great Find!

  24. I LOVE your Amber demi john. I lean toward the golds and ambers in my decorating colors. I just may keep my eyes out for an amber one! Thanks for the inspiration. Sheila

  26. Beautiful confit pot! I often buy things with a chip or slight crack in them because as you point out, who really sees it? Love your vignette and that mirror is fabulous too!

  27. I really love the dark blue of the lamp shade with the golden colors of the confit and your glass bottle. But, I must confess, I don't have an idea what a confit is used for! Clue me in, okay?

    1. Neaomi, the lamp shade is black and must look dark blue on your screen. The pot was used to store food. You can google it to find out more. Thanks
