Enter Shakespeare.....

At my entryway table I've created a new vignette
This Shakespeare Hamlet box/book has been looking for a spot and I finally found one

Since I moved the Tuscan mirror to this entry nook I needed to add some items that would look good with it. 

This large bottle caught my attention .  It's coloring struck me as a good pickup to the mirror and I loved the texture it has.

I decided to add these little glass votives accented with gold foil.  One of those items you buy and think "I'm sure I'll use it somewhere"!

I tossed some antique looking keys on there to suggest that someone has come in and dropped their keys at the entry table.  There is also a bit of lace coming out of the side.  The little cloche covered candle was new to me last September after reading about them from Ron at The Uptown Acorn  "here"   (he is a talented decorator- visit his blog if you haven't)!

  3. Super pretty, Liz! I love the added touch of the keys just kind of carelessly tossed over the book as if one was rushing in and just abandoned them there. Very cool! I have a big set like that oh-so-carefully hung over the knob of a table in the entry here. The way you have them really makes a bigger impact. So, yes...I"m going to steal your idea! :-)

    I LOVE that big ol' textured bottle!!! How cool is THAT??!?!!!!

  4. It is so fun to keep playing - now that Christmas decor is stored - with little nooks around the home. Makes you feel so welcome doesn't it? Specially in your case as it lays there by the door... I love it. All items and the ancient feeling more.
    Thank you for sharing and inspiring,

  6. Looks great Liz. Moving things around and creating vignettes is fun and gives us something to experiment with. What a great jar. Some nice texture to it.
