I have had this antique piece for a while now, and it hangs at the top of my staircase. It is a servant's bell call - type thing. (Yes, I just named it myself!) Anyhow, it has a little circular spot at the top that, at one time probably contained some kind decorative finish piece. The empty circle has always bothered me. Details, details. That's where I live! ;-)
While I was playing with the burlap and cardboard for my frames, I decided I would make a little temporary fix for the empty spot, until I find some perfect old architectural piece that fits. You KNOW I have a picture in my head of exactly what I want... Since that may take a while, I went ahead with the little project for now.
Here's the servant's bell call thing-y. ;-)
Pretty cool, huh? Too bad I don't have a library. :-(
See the GI-NORMOUS empty spot?
I made a little cardboard and burlap fix with our last initial.
That little stand was a "temporary" piece of furniture until I found the right thing....that was 10 years ago. I really have had my eyes open...just have not found exactly what I want. Maybe I should focus on it a little more, but there always seems to be something else more important.
The leaf plate hanging on the wall is part of a little collection of Syroco vintage plates. I just really like the texture of these. As I have said before, I am a texture girl. If the lighting were better, you would be able to see the veining on the leaf, creating that texture that I love.
Here's another with either lotus or lilly pads...not sure which.
I liked the swirl on this one.
And another floral. I suppose these would look so much better if they were on/in a fabulous old bureau or etagere. Ah, well. I will keep looking. It's like the forgotten zone. Do you have a forgotten zone in your home? Please tell me I'm not the only one!
Hoping you are all having a fantastic week!!
