when we first moved to waco, a friend introduced me to this little shop called "bloom and bee swanky". it is the most inspiring antique shop i have ever been to. amy does a marvelous job of setting up vignettes. it is all quite marvelous and i actually hired her assistant debbie who helps in setting up most of the displays. i own so much stuff and sometimes get lost in how to arrange it all without losing my initial intention. anyway, this photo was bought at "bloom" and decorated by amy, though none of the shine and sparkle is very evident here.

millinery flowers, who doesn't love them or have a few stashed somewhere? i have been trying to add to my collection, but the truly gorgeous are difficult to find.
this lamp is so tattered yet so beautiful; i found it at "laverty's" also here in waco. i was immediately drawn to its yellowed, torn shade and chipped putty-colored base. most people would think it trash, but i love it exactly as it is and would set it next to a sterling silver tea service with a bunch of cream peonies.
