Looking like it came out of a magazine layout,
this French Country Mantel from Pamela
 at From My Front Porch to Yours has the perfect balance.





I've oogled this Ticking Stripe Ottoman Redo

I'm lovin' this wonderful plate display

Hi, I am Lynn from The Vintage Nest blog.  Welcome to all my friends and subscribers and all newcomers.  I would love to share with you just a little about "My Style".  I love vintage, always have.  Went to my first auction when I was 20 and have been going ever since.  I lean towards more of the cottage, farmhouse, and French inspired.  Subdued in palette, with tons of  aged patina.  My home decor is achieved with just pure instinct, without any regard to the latest trends or fashions and guided by my heart. 

I have a selling website, as well as a brick and mortar space.  I would love to show you my latest project for the shop.....a table top dress form or mannequin, perfect for displaying jewelry or cute hat.  It is Frenchy in nature and achieved with simple brown paper bags and mod podge


Enjoy the party!

It's All in the Details



Coming soon ~~ A fun new blog party ~~ It's called "Share Your Style" and it's all about your style in the world of decorating.  Hosted by some of the most popular home styling bloggers and created by my friend, Sherry of No Minimalist Here.  I will be a host too and I can't wait to see you.  I am so excited about this!  Hope to get the first party started Feb. 19th so mark your bloggy calendar and please share the button on my sidebar

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And now for today's blog post

Bringing a room together can sometimes come down to just one tiny little detail. It's often the tiniest detail that makes the biggest statement. Quirky placement of objects catches the eye and pleases the soul. Today's blog is about some of the little details around my own home, that I hope make a big difference and maybe will inspire you.   xo Enjoy! 


I love frames and I really love a collection of empty frames on the wall.  They make a funny little statement.  I bought these frames exactly as you see them and added them to a small collection on the half bath wall.   The "W" is a prop from the movie 'The Silence of the Lambs' and the black and white prints were a flea market find.


Who would expect to see a candle wall sconce right next to the fireplace on the brick surround itself?  Think of unusual places to place your objects.


Don't forget the valuable real estate on top of an armoire or hutch.  Here you can place one large prized possession or a vintage of smaller items, as I did here


And pictures or photos don't always have to be on a wall or table.  Here I placed a black and white framed family photo collage on the window surround.


Mundane, everyday objects can often make a fun statement in your home.  No need to stash your paper napkins in a drawer.  Stack them, as I have, in an ironstone bowl with some other small objects.  This way, I see them all the time and remember to use them. :) 


More valuable real estate in my dining room, on top of a primitive cabinet, other wise I would have had no where to put these antique pieces that I so love.  An antique Sunday afternoon oil painting and old wicker covered demi-johns and some dried hydrangea.


this little Christmas decoration, that I could not bare to put away, adds a little black and a little bling to this otherwise solid white cabinet, calling your attention to the sweet worn catch.  A detail that might have been totally lost, otherwise.


This tiny little painting of a bird nest and egg is a mere 4" x 6" but placing it among my collection of worn old silver pewter heightens its sense of importance.


Tassels, I love tassels.  This one hangs from an antique secretary in the family room.  It was handmade by a blogger, a long time ago, and I have sense found the old metal tag with my hometown stamped on it....how fun is that?   Small items such as a tassel give a very elegant look to a piece of furniture, a lamp or a door knob.  

This worn old child statue, which I am so fond of, gets an elegant addition of a vintage child's pearl rosary.  Just that simple little addition adds so much charm to an otherwise, statue on a pedestal.  :)

I am so fond of using these old corbels as a place to rest a painting rather than just hanging it on the wall.  I especially love the vintage cherub shelves.  This one has a gorgeous patina on it of vert-de-gris.   Really gives the painting a sense of importance.


Make a simple stack of dishes and beautiful old  silver take the spotlight by placing it under a cloche.  I brought two garden pieces inside for the winter and made a simple vignette on the dining room table.  No floral arrangements needed  :)   


Look around......I bet there are many ways in your home you can make the ordinary......extraordinary.
