Pretty things around the house

A place for my tea bag.

This old dresser is one of my favorites. The person who sold it to me had acquired it when it was completely painted (old paint). She began to sand it and found these gorgeous flowers beneath the paint! She was afraid to go any further and ruin the original loveliness. I bought it like this and actually love the old flowers and gray paint peeking through. Maybe one day I'll try to strip it down to the original gray.

A favorite pillow from enhabiten.

A pretty crocheted rock from bodhitree. You know how I am with rocks.

A favorite old table.

An antique decanter. The glass bottle is encased in this lovely scrollwork.

  1. Wow, you have all of these beautiful things in your house? It must be a lovely place! That decanter is particularly amazing. It looks like something the elves might have in Lord of the Rings. :)

  9. Just Gorgeous~! Is it bad to start the new year with such jealousy? Maybe I'll use it as a goal to pretty up my surroundings!
