The Februrary issue of Romantic Homes has got me dreaming! This is one of those magazines that I need to subscribe to, I usually love it cover to cover. This month the actual front cover didn't appeal to me, but inside was treat after dreamy treat. There was a special annual section on people who live a creative, romantic life. Eighteen people were featured, mostly women, each with photos of their homes, workspace or vignettes from their stores.
Something in there inspired me to make a romantic little display for my new shelf. I wanted roses, and opted for silk so they would last. Then I really scored at the thrift store where I found a silver plated coffee pot and serving tray, each for five dollars.
Here are the results of my creative play today. Above you can see the lovely serving dishes I got at TaiPan Trading Co. (see my previous post) set up with the silver tray I found today. On the left is the shelf in my entryway, the favorite of my TaiPan finds, and the romance inspired roses in the silver pot. Now all this shelf needs is some artwork behind it to complete the picture.
