Hello sweet friends, how’s everyone doing? I know this is a difficult time for many with the virus going on right now. I firmly believe we are a strong country and have the best in the medical field to get us through this scary time.
This month instead of the Thrift Store Challenge we are showing a shelf we styled in our homes using what we have to fit with our decorating styles.
I recently showed how I upcycled this mantle and church frames I found thrifting weeks ago. you can see it HERE
If you have been following me, you know I have a love for cloches and lavender, see what I did there, ha, ha? If you are new to Cloches and Lavender welcome and I hope you will follow along where you can gather decorating ideas and painting techniques along with an occasional recipe for fun.
I shopped the house and added some fun pieces I have collected over the years.
The Mckoy pitcher filled with lavender is a recent find. Lavender adds a French touch and is perfect to use all year long. Mixing seeded eucalyptus and a rose bud gives the corner of the shelf some softness.
The vintage flower pots mixed with antique books and pretty ribbon adds texture and interest.
This French cloche is a piece I haven’t used in a long time. I actually have been wondering where it has been and found it in my husband’s office closet of all places. Placing the vintage bird finial and rusted crown added a whimsical touch.
Finishing this shelf with a piece of Florentine seemed to be fitting. I love Florentine and enjoy mixing elegant and rustic touches in décor throughout our home.
My thrifted candlestick adds a romantic feel I as it illuminates the piece gilded beauty of the Florentine plaque. My husband brought two plaques home for me one Saturday when he went to pick up a piece I purchased from the Thrift store, I’m one lucky lady!.
I lit this at dusk last evening so I was able to show how beautiful the glow of the candlelight is with the crystal accents of the candlestick.
I hope this inspires you to add pieces that bring you joy to a shelf or spot in your home. Please click on the links below to see the beautiful shelves the other ladies are sharing today!
