My mom and I have been having a lot of fun. We've been working on sewing projects (the projects will be in my next post), watching mysteries, looking through loads of decorating magazines and decorating books, and of course playing with Evy. I just wanted to pop in and say hi, and leave a picture of the little table that sits next to our chair and ottoman in our bedroom. I really like the arrangement on the table, especially with the silver tray of perfumes and old bottles, the lucite-esque lamp (it is actually from Target so it isn't lucite), and the gold frame. I also like the way that the silver, gold and "lucite" work together - it mixes well even though they are all different.
In the background are the new chocolate brown velvet curtains. They are from Restoration Hardware. There are a few perfumes that I really love and typically wear one of them every day. Most are on this tray. Burberry (not shown), Jo Malone (I have two: one is Orange Blossom, the other is Honeysuckle and Jasmine), Kate Spade, and L'Occitane (one is Vanilla, the other is Neroli). The flower is a lapel pin made of vintage fabric and a vintage piece of jewelry. I usually get one every time my mom and I go to one particular antiques occassional sale in Buffalo, MN. I have four different ones now.
In my next post I will show you the great sewing projects that my mom and I did. We made cosmetic bags, small change purses, and a beautiful liner for a picnic basket I have. Hope you are all doing very well - I've been thinking of you.
