  1. You do a great job on the vignettes, putting them all together in a way that doesn’t look cluttered.

    I’m a bit late commenting. Your vignette is wonderful. Makes me think of what I would refer to as the “Mayberry Era”. I miss Mayberry…a song by Rascal Flatts says it well.

    1. I love it! I loved Mayberry. It was my favorite show when I was little.

  3. I love the bottle and jar vignette, Brenda. I like that your blue mason jars all have the zinc lids. I have quite a few of the blue mason jars but most of them have the glass lids with the wire fasteners. Sadly, they aren’t on display right now as my kitchen spaces are filled with the extra foods we need for my daughter and her boys.

    The bottles and jars go so well with the rustic cupboard you have now and that old black and white photo above looks exactly right.

    Hope you and the fur babies are doing well and you all have a good Easter weekend.

    1. Naomi, you might search for just the zinc lids on places like Etsy or eBay.

    Love how you went ahead and got the picture before knowing where you’d put it. Your sense of style and decorating ability is so creative. You try things out and take chances too. Nice that you move items around and switch things up for the changing seasons.

    1. And I don’t normally do that. I typically have a place chosen before I buy it.

    It looks great. I have a mish mash too. I like so many styles and they all coexist here.

  6. What a lovely collection. I love the photo on display.

  7. I also have fur babies. Where did you buy your couch. ? I keep my furniture covered up and I’m really getting tired of that. I always enjoy your blog and have for many years.

    1. I ordered it from a place here in town. A local place. But it is a Lazy Boy company called England.

    LOVELY…simply lovely!! I am going to HL now to hunt for that truck photo…reminds me of my darling Grampie!! Thanks for the ideas!!

  9. Love the hobby lobby picture and the Mason jars I am sure they are pretty at night due to the color .
    I love mismatched things in my decor as well !
    Awesome !!

  10. The aqua Ball jars are perfect with the black and white truck photo canvas. I also like how you have the clear glass bottles corralled into the galvanized tub.

    Like you, I don’t think I have a single piece of furniture in this house that I’d have to worry about. Wait, I take that back: the antique dresser in the spare room. It has a lot of meaning to me due to its history. It belonged to friends of our family, then it was my sister’s dresser when she was growing up (it went through a coat of pink paint, then white), then it went to an older lady at our church who stripped it and stained it and was given to me as a gift when I was pregnant with Philip. It was then his dresser all through his too-short (21 years) life.

    My style is mixed and matched all over the house…I like anything from country to classic to farmhouse to modern to mid-century modern. I like both silver and gold. I like antiques and collections and original photography prints. I like neutrals AND color. So my house reflects all of this, but hopefully in kind of a cohesive way. 😉

    1. I have silver and gold and everything else. I don’t like to matchy-match.

    I love the truck picture and all of the bottles and mason jars. Lots of memories in just those 2 things. I see a white tray on your desk. I have been wanting one like that but haven’t seen one yet. Could I ask where you found it? I agree that furniture doesn’t need to match. My friend use to say her style was “early junkyard”. Mine too. I like what I like. Smile.

    1. I have had those glass trays for many years. Can’t even recall where I got them. Some place I think in Canton, TX. Maybe you could Google white ceramic platter/tray.

        thank you, i will try that.

  12. Love seeing your desk. As a writer, I’ enjoy setting up a home workspace.
    Your patio garden is looking lovely in green & purple again.
    I”m glad Nathan is available and willing to help/work for you.. A good arrangement for both of you.
    Love seeing Charlie & Ivy Lou and I always look forward to photos of them!

  13. Brenda, I love your collection and how you’ve styled it with the vintage truck wall hanging. They fit perfectly together and the blue compliments the black and white very well. I think having a mix of furniture pieces and textures adds so much more visual interest to a room! Great job! Love and hugs!

  14. It all looks great, Brenda – what does Ivy think? Has she been up there checking it out yet? I wonder how long it will take her to realize there’s something up there she can knock over…

  15. Soooo pretty …. could that canvas be any more perfect with that furniture and vignette??? Love this !!!!
