VINTAGE TABLE

vintage table

Setting the table with lots of unneeded doodads.  I hate a sparse table.  Empty tables look sad.  They make me think of famines and the space between Shelly’s ears.

Infatuated with brass lately–there is a shelf in my garage that looks like Aladdin’s den.  I love to look at it.

My favorite vintage brass lamps.

I love browsing flea markets and estate sales for keepsake boxes–they have so many uses.

This cut crystal box from tiffany’s makes such an unusual jewelry box.

The Nautilus is probably my favorite configuration –I never tire of looking at them.

Another crystal box from Tiffany’s.

Karen and I put a lot of these items up on the site. I hope you enjoy and I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.  It’s pouring down rain here in North Texas today–it’s a perfect rainy Sunday.

    To die for! One thing that doesn’t stand out as much, but is as equally amazing as everything else is the “tablecloth!” Love, love, love the idea! I come across similar items at estate auctions and flea markets in an effort to stock my etsy shop with cool things. It’s putting them all together, however, that takes a great eye and sense of style! I just checked your blog out for the first time and I’m certain I’ll be back!
