Do you like to group similar items for vignettes? I love to gather items with a similar color or theme and put them together.
Since blue and white china is a favorite of mine, a grouping of blue and white china pieces on a tray brightens my day.
I like to see my script-covered apples lined up to march down the front of my hutch. I especially love them, because I don’t have to move them to open the doors to get something out of the hutch.
While we are looking at my hutch, I want to show you the little lamps I got at a sale at one of my favorite stores. They were $15.00 each, and they spoke to me (they were actually yelling – “take me home”).
At the same sale, I purchased this pretty little wreath for $7.00. I knew I would spend more on that if I tried to make it myself (not to mention the time it would take me).
I also do groupings of only a couple of similar things.
A glass apple and a glass pear compliment the plate that was painted by my aunt.
I think this little carved figure of a man looks like he just walked out of the scene on this plate.
The metal bowl, filled with faux fruit is my attempt to mimic the painting above it.
On this table, I grouped a collection of small dogs on a tray. I smile every time I pass this vignette. Some were gifts, but most were purchased at yard sales at very low prices. The little Staffordshire on the back of the tray was purchased at an estate sale for $10.00, the most I've paid for any of them.
