I can't believe how unsettling it is to have one of your children out of the house. My daughter has spent her first week at college and has made a great adjustment. I am not certain her mother has made the same adjustment. What does a mother do who is missing her daughter? Plan a trip to Goodwill or visit an Estate Sale.
I snatched up this great little silver tray and vintage millinery flowers.
This is the most beautiful bottle opener ever! I love grape patterned silverplate.
I found this wonderful wooden tray which I am going to paint white and distress. It will become the foundation for a great shabby table display.
Lastly, I was creative with a few of my vintage finds. The cake stand and cloche are part of my collection. With a little inspiration from a photo from Jeanine's blog at Chippy Shabby, a few of my recent vintage finds and a little natural material, I created this awesome still life. The variety of whites and creams are just the right combination for the naturals and silver pieces.
I plan on being more creative and focused this week. Check back to see what I have done.
