A Few New Vignettes

I have so enjoyed my break from work, but all good things must come to an end.  I return to work tomorrow and my kinders return Wednesday. I am ready I suppose. The great thing is I am going back to a super clean and organized classroom. I stayed and got a lot done that last day before my break started. Now I will have time to do some planning at school before the kiddos return. I have enjoyed making some small changes around the house during the last few days. I look forward to coming home to a fresh, clean house after work.

I decided to use black, white, and turquoise/aqua in my coffee/hot cocoa station. 

I like the fun pop of pattern and color the paper straws provide.

I tweaked the vignette in front of my sink. As usual...everything shown was thrifted, except for the planter and plant.

This is on the wall end of the bar. I had never put it back up after the remodel last summer, 
but I like it sitting on the bar. See the cow butter dish I shared Friday?

One side of my stove.....

and the other.

The little shelf got tweaked too...I washed everything and downsized but moving a couple pieces to other areas.

Moving on to the living room....the top of the heater got freshened up. 
The orbs in the silver basket were a gift from my Secret Santa. I really like them.

The game cabinet also got a new vignette. 

I really like this space. 

And the last vignette is on one of the sofa end tables. 
I really like the lamp painted white. 

I hope to post at least 1-2 times this week. We'll see how it goes. 
Have a lovely Sunday.
Until next time.....

  3. Vicky, I really love your white butter/creamer collection in your kitchen. So cute. I think turquoise is a great color for winter! Have a good week back to work.

  4. Looks beautiful as usual Vicky! I'm sad I have to go back to work too... I so wish I could earn my living from home too.

  6. Happy Sunday, Vicky! You are so far ahead of me. I have not yet finished putting up Christmas decorations and the naked tree is sitting in the living room. Love the new vignettes. It is nice to come home from school to an organized and pretty home.

  7. Very pretty vignettes Vicky! I LOVE that milk pitcher and that cupboard behind it. I have a yellow cow like your white one, so cute. Have fun with the kinders!

  8. All of your vignettes are so pretty Vicky. You have such a gift for putting them together.

    I love every time I get a glimpse of that fantastic mirror above the game cabinet. It's one of my favorites.

    Have a great week!
