When we built this home and decided this bookcase would be in the design I knew I wanted to have some antique pieces displayed.
First, I knew I had to sit on this decision for a while, I didn’t want to buy pieces for the sake of buying antiques.
I wanted to take time to figure out what I was drawn to because as you know many pieces are out there to choose from White Ironstone, Limoges, Transferware to name a few.
As you can see my decision was red and pink transferware with one piece of ironstone. I didn’t want large pieces. The bookcase is on the more slender side and didn’t want it overwhelmed.
I searched for the pieces that I loved and made my heart skip a beat. Theses are the pieces that made it happen.
I think this vintage French mirror I purchased a couple of years ago with saucers from both my grandmothers’ with dried jasmine adds a romantic touch.
Champagne glasses are vintage and were a gift from years ago and are filled with dried pink rosebuds. It adds a romantic feel I am incorporating into my décor.
Aren’t these antique pink books from France perfect, LOVE? A piece of silver plate given to me by a friend from her grandmother’s collection adds a great touch with more dried jasmine buds.
I hope you enjoyed the pretty pieces. I also hope everyone in the Midwest is recovering from the brutal cold and some warmer temperatures are on the way for us all dealing with the cold.
