We are supposed to be having a big snow storm with high winds and they even closed the schools I guess in anticipation, but it's calm outside and the sun has come out…yay!
Had to take a picture of this shadowing
This is the first time since I got this Etagere to decorate it with everyday items and not something themed for a season. I started with my little blue and white hen on this display piece. Very few of my dishes can fit here so I decided to try the clay tray and it fits perfectly.
I did go with mostly blues and chose to mix a couple of different patterns together on the next shelf. I found the navy blue cream pitcher a couple of months ago and have been waiting to use it.
This shelf I decided to stick to a theme for wine. I need a nice looking corkscrew for this too. The marble wine chiller came from the Williams Sonoma outlet down at Birch Run (MI) and the copper wine coaster also from WS. That wood tray is from Pier 1- a clearance item but possibly still available. Great for a cheese tray which is always so good with wine.
I set a tray on this level and incorporated a dairy theme or so I tried. I need some eggs for the basket but I didn't want to use my Easter Eggs since they're colored and I'd like a more natural look. I stuffed a couple of faux cabbage pieces in there for now. There are roosters on the side of the basket but they don't show up well. Someone needs to highlight them with a little accent paint!
On the bottom I stacked all my round or square tablecloths in the large basket. Behind it is a wicker tray that is standing up against the frame. It provides a screen for the accent light that shines behind it in the evenings.
I did the same in the other smaller basket that sets on the bottom of the little table next to it. I did manage to force myself to put a couple of tablecloths in the donation bag.
So that's how it looks for now! You know me it probably will change before long :-)
Doesn't look like a big storm does it! I think the weathermen scared the school into thinking it was going to be far worse than it ended up being. It's safer though than trying to let school out early and have the buses trying to navigate in bad weather.
