A Simple Vignette.....

Is all it takes to bring a little beauty into a corner of every room...

This one, featuring a bit of buttery soft yellows is in a corner of my living room and sits upon a darling little doll size table with the top covered in some vintage wallpaper.

And even has a doll size garden chair sitting close by. This sweet little metal chair was another find at Micheal's earlier this Spring.

Is it terribly wrong for me to already be looking forward to next Spring and all the wonderful new Spring decor that will make it's way into the stores? Maybe so, but being the lover of pastel colors that I am, I find the stores to be a bit depressing during the Fall and Winter seasons when they are filled with the darker Fall like colors of browns, maroons and oranges or the reds and green's so prevelant at Christmas time.

I am much happier and more cheerful when surround by my pinks and other pastel colors all year round.

Hi Kim....I had not thought of that but I guess that is very true about the darker seasonal colors in stores. I have been able to find more pastel colors for my Christmas decorations in the past couple of years but I agree that pastel colors make me happier too! I love the little table with the vintage wallpaper on it! So cute!~Hugs, Patti

You have such a way with vingettes, Kim! So pretty!

Wong to long for Spring? Hey, if it's not illegal- it's not wrong! I think you are a true canidate for a Pink Fall and Christmas! ♥

I guess the deeper colors are supposed to make us feel all cozy & nesting for winter. But I too love the spring & summer pastels!!
Have a Wonderful Day!

I love this idea of putting a pretty card under the glass cloche. I have finally aquired 2 of them, neither have anything in them yet. I get stuck for ideas. That's why I love blogs. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Kim!

How are you doing! It has been a "month of Sunday's" since I have been out and about. You have the loveliest things! I had no idea it got humid in Minnesota. Actually we are in the desert here in NM, but it has been so humid I haven't dried off in a month - it feels so gross! Do you have a scent that is like a signature for you in the house? Like roses or something floral? I know that sounds weird, but sometimes you see different blogs and think, "I bet her house smells like pumpkin bread..." so when I see yours, I always think roses.

Have a good day!
