Another Christmas Vignette

Yes, I'm still in chill mode.  All I've been doing, is playing around with my decor.  I wanted to share a vignette I put together this morning.   I knew when I purchased my cement cherub family you saw in my "Estate Shopping" post, I would be using them inside.  I replaced the vignette you saw here, with this one.  Everyone loves it.  This is how I built it.







I created this vignette with my winter and fall cherubs.  The stone base in the center is another purchase from the same estate sale.  It was the base of my small fountain.



The glass bowl, from the same estate, had a metal stand that went with it.  It fit inside the stone base, with a little space left over.  So, I filled  in the gap with jingle bells, and inserted a pillar candle.  For the backdrop, I layered four vintage frames.  The three white frames I painted a while ago.  The center frame took me about five minutes to silver leaf.  I consider it my wreath.  I placed some jingles bells on my cherubs too.




Hmmmm, I almost stopped here, but it was just too bland.  So, I added a cherub runner, a Jay Strongwater ornament (bought for an insanely cheap price at a garage sale), sprinkled more jingle bells, and one more pop of red.

The ornament is the perfect accompaniment to the frames as is the additional pop of color. I knew I wasn't the only one still adding and changing things around.

Where in the world do you ever find such awesome treasures, girl???? Holy cow! You sure have a knack of nabbing some incredible things. And I can't believe how when you put things together, they somehow magically fit and look fabulous??? lol! YOU have been sprinkled with some magical dust, I think, Rosemary. :)

I think I really like the idea of cement statuary used in interiors...as in what you have done in decorating with them... it lends a slightly garden-y feel to the vignette and makes me kind of think of summer...
very pretty decor..
best,
maureen
