Random Vignettes

While taking on the uphill battle of organizing my garage and workspace today, I paused for a moment, and realized that I had created several random vignettes.  I've been casually searching for my next home.   Just my luck, I'll fall in love with something in the dead of winter. I simply have to get things straightened out before the cold really takes hold.  I have to figure out what's staying in the house, how I'm organizing my workspace, how I want to stack and pack in the garage, etc.   I'll spare you any wide shots, it's a little too scary.










Haven't decided what I'm doing with this table yet.







Stuff, stuff, stuff.








I forgot I had these little shakers.



This is but a tiny drop of what I'm dealing with here.  After I'm done frustrating myself and making no real progress, I'll be back  to show you what this is and what I'm doing with it.



See ya soon.

Kris said...

Rosemary,

You have great STUFF! I know all to well how frustrating it is to try to figure out what to do with and where to put the things you love. They are part of your soul because I think each item you pick-up or find appealing speaks to just that...your soul.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Ooh, I love everything Rosemary. Those salt and pepper shakers are really neat, too.
Just love all the chippy and patina-ed treasures.

Ivy and Elephants said...

That is divine and I am imagining it after a Rosemary redo. Wow...the possibilities. The salt and pepper shakers are my fave. I have a thing for silver. Man I wish I had your problem. Beautiful.

You are a pro at creating beautiful vignettes, Rosemary! You make it all look so effortless! I am drooling over your gorgeous frames, and that wonderful white washed basket! Love it all!

Honey at 2805 said...

Rosemary, you have such beautiful and exciting stuff. I would be delighted to help you organize!

Revi said...

Rosemary, you're very prolific, so you have a great stash of stuff! Your stash of stuff is cuter than my stash of stuff. Better get busy...:)

Kelly said...

My goodness that's alot of stuff! However, it looks like pretty stuff to me. I know you'll get those creative juices flowing and have that stuff recycled in no time.

miss flibbertigibbet said...

Rosemary your photographs make me drool! Obviously, I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH STUFF! Don't tell my hubby I said that....I wish I was close enough to see your things in person!

Diane said...

Well, you're a bad influence on me! LOL! Actually, you're a GOOD influence, because I had hubby stripping an old cabinet yesterday that is going to get a new shabby life when I get my paints and crackle out!

Hugs, Diane

I fell in love with the scale...you can throw it my way if can't find any place to put it. LOL You have lots of work, but I'm sure it's going to be fun.

Pam@OurAdventuresInHomeImprovement said...

Love the frames, the scales, the corbels. You have some great things there that I'm sure you'll make into even greater things!

I'm eager to see what you do with it.

Have a great day.
Pam

Cindy said...

Hi Rosemary,
Can I come over and go through your garage with you? Just in case you decide you don't really need some of those fabulous treasures! =)
You have some beautiful stuff in there!
Hugs, Cindy

Honey at 2805 said...

Stopping back by to say your participation in Potpourri Friday is appreciated! Many thanks!

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Can't wait to see what you do with that table that you don't know what your going to do with yet. I have one almost identical sitting in our library/reading room. Hurry and decide so that I can copy you, lol.

kpaints said...

Untidy work space....not a problem...I would give my eye teeth to work in your space!!! Do you think if somethings were missing you would notice? ha!!

ReFresh ReStyle said...

I'd love to be nosing around through all that! great looking accidental vignettes! Debbie

Tracy said...

Some of the best "stuff" I've seen! Any accidental vignettes of my stuff in storage would include cardboard boxes, plastic totes and/or paint cans. Yours is much prettier!

Blessings from Cindy said...

Hmmm what a problem you have, my dear!! Wanna hand deciding what to keep & what to give away...to me!! Such a cool post! Thanks for sharing!!
Blessings,
Cindy

Doll in the Looking Glass said...

Your collections have so much texture. You really need to move these wonderful items out of your garage/workroom -- they would add so much warmth to your main living area.

Visiting from 2805,

Cindy said...

Organizing is one of my least favorite things to do, but I feel sooo much better once it is done! Might be a tad more enjoyable if I found sweet little things like those forgotten shakers along the way :)

lvroftiques said...

Well you might not like the wide pan, but the small vignette shots are delicious! *winks* Good luck with the organizing Rosemary! When you're done come help me *winks* Vanna

Veronica said...

I tell you gal I love your stuff and would love to see the wide shots as well!! Phew there is some treasure in your pretty vignettes, Rosemary.
