Metamorphosis Monday~ A new vignette in the master bedroom

I am joining Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday, Rhonda from Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures and Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for TableTop Tuesday. I have NEVER taken part in sooo many parties at one time! WOW!!! I purchased a few items here and there, and of course they needed a new home. The thrifty items were purchased at a local antique store, but I thought they were good buys. Of course, I shopped around the house and inside the "secret stash closet". Well, I finally decided where these items would be placed for the time being and got busy.....busy dusting, rearranging, and snapping photos. I liked the "before" photo, BUT more is ALWAYS better RIGHT????
BEFORE.......like I mentioned before.....nothing wrong with this vignette.....BUT a little change NEVER hurts!!! My Staffordshire doggies are little sad because they have not found the "just right" spot yet! They are howling at the moon and whining a little. Bless their hearts!

AFTER........some of the same items BUT notice the new pretties.



The wall hanging.....I have had this for years. I purchased this at a local antique store for around 20 bucks. The print is nothing special as far as canvas for anything. I was paying mostly for the frame. I LOVE unique frames, but the print was a little added bonus!




I "heart" having items displayed at varying heights...don't you?

The bell jar is a new find that I grab right up at a local antique store for 3 bucks. I knew right then......cloche decorating.......another accessory for Marty's Cloche Parties. Yippee!!!! The pretty shell inside is a recent find a wonderful store that I cannot remember the name. It was a tablescaper's dream!!!!! I wanted the shell for the coloration, so my moma bought it for me. I WAS NOT going to pay 10 bucks for that thing, so she did!!! Nice to have momas around!!!! :)






This little saucer was a find a couple of weeks ago at a local antique store for $1.50. I could pass it up because of the color scheme....just what I needed for my bedroom. ......browns and turquoise







I have had this "eye candy" for several years. Until about 3 years ago (when we change the color scheme of the master bedroom), it waited patiently in the secret stash closet. (You have one of the those places right?) This was a STEAL at Hobby Lobby for between 5-7.00 bucks on clearance. I course it went right into my buggy without thinking twice!!!





Varying heights is what books are for right????? The two bottom books belonged to my MeMaw and Granddaddy Skeets. The top two books are two old New Testament Bibles from my home church. Look....I told you that I even dusted for you! See the reflection of the books.....furniture shining like a new diamond! :)


Thanks for stopping by and viewing my minor changes. Be sure to check out all the other talented blogger and see what they have been up too.


Editor's note: I forgot to add the other parties' buttons. If I had added them later when I realized it then they would have been out of order....... like TableTop Tuesday would be listed first or something like that. Oh well, please forgive me. Not use to participating in sooo many parties!!

  2. I like what you did -- I dont move furniture but move tabletops a lot -- keeps the house looking fresh methinks. Your Staffordshire pups will find a home somewhere -- the perfect home!

  6. Oh, this is such a pretty vignette. I love the frame too on the picture. Adding the place and the cloche and all the other items just makes it so interesting. Of course you knew I would really notice the cloche. You've done a wonderful job with your vignette. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  12. Sometimes, all it takes is some editing, some elevation, and some layering to totally change the feel of a vignette. This looks wonderful. I like how you staggered your heights and added the plate for more interest. I hope your doggies found a new home- I love those little guys! Visiting from Artie's.
