...yes YOU, dear ones!
for this white wednesday post,
I will be sharing my front hall entry table vignette
the first thing that greets you when you walk through the door...
you will first see my smiling face,
and then this vignette ~ lol!!
I have been collecting some pretties
from a few lovely shops at etsy,
just for this display :)
There are so many hand made, beautiful things available here...
The first pretty I have to show you ~
is the paper butterfly garland
that you can find "here"
I liked this
because butterflies represent a continual reemergence of new hope
and encourage us to spread our wings and fly beautifully
~ for we are only here a short time...
a creamy white rose wreath
it is the center of this swag,
I have added a vintage multi strand of decadent pearls
in the most loveliest champagne shade
and a small enamel cross.
perhaps you recognize it from last weeks "beautiful roots" post??
just in case you haven't noticed,
I seem to seek items with roses
ahhhhh ~ the beautiful rose
" a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"
a quote by William Shakespeare
from his play Romeo and Juliet
~ Romance ~
and are these not romantic??
I found these beauties "here"
I needed two,
one on each end of my swag garland...
Easter will be here soon...
so I wanted my table to also reflect what that means to me.
I feel in love with these tags the moment I laid eyes on them!!
their soft, muted colors were just what I was after.
perhaps you would desire a set of your own "here"??
I think I should buy stock in sweet Michelle's shop,
as I am always finding such pretty little things there to use
as a visual in and around my home:)
I added a most lovely paper ruff,
a stick on pearl and ribbon ties in the exact same shade as the romantic ruff
~ table top ~
love, Love, LOVE the delicateness of the lily of the valley flowers...
their meaning is: purity of heart, sweetness, and tears of the Virgin Mary
I found this statue of Mary,
many years ago at the G.W.
and often think that she was there just for me that day!
as I have never found one quite so lovely since!!
more pearls around her neck
under my glass cloche is a nest
and in this nest are no ordinary eggs
~ in the land of odds,
you will find eggs of spun silk!!
resting upon their natural golden silk cocoons
which you can find " here"
is all I can say!
I am in awe of the infinite detail of God's creative hand...
this is the bottom layer of my entry table...
see the piece of driftwood??
I sewed cotton lace around it and LOVE how it turned out!!
all put together ~
my front entry:)
thank you for stopping by today!
I hope you enjoyed your visit
and found some little pretties along the way that
make your heart sing
sharing this over at Faded Charm's White Wednesday
here's to artisan pretties on etsy!
