Salt Box and a Silver Birds Nest

Saturday, April 13, 2013

pansies

Hi Sweet Friends!
It’s another beautiful day here in NC, reaching in the 70’s!  I love this time of year, except for the pollen.  Lots of sneezing and everything is covered in yellow!

I’ve been switching up some things in the den.  This early 1800’s salt box caught my eye on Ebay about 15 years ago...wow, I'd forgotten it had been that long ago!  I liked the scroll work across the top, that it was all wood and larger that most I was finding.  It also has a flip top and small drawer so it is nice for storing things like extra coasters, a pen and pad.


Porcelain birds catch my eye when I’m out and about and they will come home with me if pretty and at a good price.  These were in the living room but have been moved to the den with this dish as a silver birds nest…


I’ve done a little change in the dining room too.  On the mirrored plateau the dried hydrangea have been replaced with white and purple pansies that have been added to this silver and crystal set…



A few years ago I found two hourglass hurricane sleeves at an estate sale.  I’ve coupled them with some crystal candlesticks and have placed them on either side of the mirrored plateau…

 





Hope you have a GREAT day!
Blessings,
Cindy

  16. Your salt box looks wonderful on the table. The thing that really caught my eye, though, was the way that you used the candlestick inside the hurricane. I have those hurricanes and am really lazy, about doing anything with them. I may have to steal? borrow? this fantastic idea. Thanks for sharing.
