I would love to have an entryway, but unfortunately my front door opens directly into my living room. In the corner next to the door is one of my favorite pieces of furniture – my hall tree. I wish I could say it was an antique, but it’s a reproduction of a Victorian piece.
For quite a while, I had a summery floral arrangement in a bowl sitting on the shelf. I decided it was definitely time for a change, so I’ve been playing around with it this week.
Antique vase with transfer scene featuring maidens and a cherub by the artist Angelica Kauffman (1741-1807)…
filled with an arrangement of eucalyptus and peacock feathers.
Love, love, love peacock feathers!
The antique porcelain heart with two cherubs…
would have held water and a small arrangement of flowers.
Framed print “A Garland of Morning Glories” by Emile Vernon.
For now, a crystal bowl in a silver plated holder filled with seashells and pearls. I’ll probably change up this shelf in the next couple of days.
Some of my vintage handbags…most of these are from the 1950-60’s and were gifts from my sister.
Antique prints by Hans Zatzka in scrolling brass frames.
and cherubs…my favorite type of artwork!
Container holding my grandfather’s walking cane and my grandmother’s parasol (actually it’s an umbrella…but parasol sounds so much better! LOL)
Peacock made by a very special cousin in the 1970’s. Love the iridescent sheen on the feathers!
Other than changing up the bowl of shells for something else, I’ll probably leave it like this until I decorate for Halloween.
I’m joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.
Thanks for visiting with me today! I hope to see you again soon.
