Hello everyone!  Happy Saturday!

I've been wanting to find something to use for a new centerpiece for my dining table for a while, but
just hadn't been able to find the perfect piece... until now.  It had to be something that could easily be
moved from and to the table, as my kids use it often to do their homework and art projects on.  I
bought this wonderful French rustic tool caddy from Maria's lovely online shop (along with a few other
things, which I'll share in another post).  I love the way the pale pink of these delicate Heritage roses
look against the rustic wood of this caddy.

 I also ordered some antique French letters from Maria's shop, and she packaged them tucked inside
this fabulous vintage French book in the most wonderful shade of bluish-grey color.  Thank you
so much Maria!!  I love everything I ordered from your shop and this sweet book!! :-)


I used a green antique French canning jar that I also bought from Maria's shop to hold the roses and
tucked some white tapered candles in the caddy as well. 
 While I have turned off my comments and haven't been leaving comments out there in Blogland, I still
visit your lovely blogs from time to time to see what you've all been up to.  This is just a less time
consuming way for me to continue blogging. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

'Til next time...

  1. Your home is beautiful and you have done such an excellent job at transforming it into a beautiful serene space. I admire your style, it is very peaceful and relaxing, understated and gorgeous at the same time. All the best to you in the year ahead. You are talented and you and your daughters will be fine. If you need to you will make another house your home and it will be wonderful. Keep the faith.

  3. I'm a big fan of the tool box. The correct way to define it would be a french tool caddy as you so elegantly put it. It really brings the flowers more to life. I love how you envisioned that the flowers would look good in the tool caddy and to no surprise they did.
