One of the (many) blessings of having a blog is all the new friends one can make when participating in a 'blog party'. Artie from Color Outside the Lines found me by way of Susan at Between Naps on the Porch Tablescape Party and invited me to participate in his new endeavor 'Vignette Friday'. I would have never known about his fabulous blog had he not commented in mine. You MUST visit him...he is extremely talented and shares wonderful interior decorating ideas!
So for Vignette Friday, I thought I'd show you the change in our bookshelves in our family room.
Here is the before:
And here is the after:
More simpler and streamlined and, oh yes..more books! ;-)
This old typewriter is set in with pictures of my mom in her wedding dress..Steve's parents that says 'lovers' on the back ;-), and a vintage type pic of our youngest son, Caleb.
I've started collecting antique wine glasses..the green ones are new, tho..a 50th birthday present to Steve and me from our sister-in-law. The silver tray was a recent garage sale find for $2.00!!!
I like books set every-which-way, instead of all stacked in a row..I think it makes it more interesting to look at.
It gives our family room more of a homey and cozy feel..I got two thumbs up from the other members of the household, also!
Check out all the other vignettes at Color Outside the Lines!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
