Hello sweet friends!
Over the weekend I've been tweaking, changing and rearranging some of the vignettes around the house.
I was tired and bored with the old look, it screamed UP DATE ME!!!
I had for so long the same things on top, specially on the antique chest, a heirloom from Alejandro's grandparents.
I've also been inspiring myself through Pinterest great pins from Ralph Lauren's classy décor, I just adore!
Some of you might remember I had it filled with family mementos in silver picture frames, in the foyer.... but if you don't, it's not important, here are my 'new vignettes' around the house, now.
I'm also sharing a couple of new finds. A 'Friendly Village,' soup tureen and big serving platter (perfect for Thanksgiving) and an Indian tablecloth with elephants I bought when I went to Peru on vacation...very inexpensive!
Ok, here it is, hope you like them.
|The fireplace is in our den, so here too I had almost the same things for so long, except when I decorate it for Fall, now that September is here...or C'mas time.|
|At the far left side of the mantel, I placed a couple of photographs of my dearest 'four girls.' This was an inspiration from a Ralph Lauren's mantel idea.|
|At the far right end there's a photograph I love of Alejandro with Victoria, our eldest grandchild, who is ten now!|
This is how my mantel looks right now and I do like the final look.
|In the inside of the tureen is a summer scene, a cabin and water well.|
|The plate under it and ladle is from my white ironstone soup tureen.|
|Here is my new vignette with my Friendly Village tureen and platter and my bird Polish teacups in our breakfast area - English buffet.|
|And my second find; is this pretty beige and red elephant, Indian cotton table linen I found very inexpensive in Peru while vacationing there three weeks ago.|
|Elephants on the sides and the center...I love it! Elephants are good luck and are so adorable. The red and beige caught my eye, and in real life is very beige, not white.|
I think it'll be pretty come Christmas time too.
