Just a little silver and sparkle...


This is a post from last New Year's Eve that I wanted to share again. So many of you are new to blogging this year, and maybe hadn't seen it. It's one of my favorite vignettes. I had been wanting to do a cupboard with just silver and neutrals and decided to put this together the week after Christmas. Odds and ends and clock faces and silver. I enjoyed it until the Valentine's bug bit me in mid January. Love the seasons and holidays...keeps things interesting, and in somewhat of a disarray. 



This is on my sideboard in the Hall kitchen, which gets changed out regularly. I like to clear things off and start fresh each month.



I wanted some New Year's Eve sparkle!






Just look at the patina on this old metal painted vanity mirrored tray.





















Love this old wedding certificate.




I haven't been able to get a lot accomplished this week, I'm taking it easy on the ankle. Thanks so much for all your well wishes and kind words. I still have some Christmas decor that needs to be put away... I'm ready for a fresh start for 2012. 
Thank you, each one of you, who comes by to visit. You're my inspiration, and my motivation to stay busy and focused. Non bloggers may not understand us, but we know the friendship and "community" are real. I think of you each as a blessing.

Have a wonderful New Year's Eve!

  25. Beautiful Debra! I need to make some of the clock faces. I don't ever see them for sale. I love the marriage certificate! 20 years ago IL still used it. That is the same marriage certificate my hubs and I have and it is hanging in the bedroom. You make beautiful vignettes! Have a wonderful New Year and get well soon!
