New Vintage Display By My Front Door

Hello my sweet dears...
Today I am so happy to show you an area I have been tinkering with.
 It is a little corner by our front door...

I had a small Christmas tree in this cove for a few weeks....
 But recently I found this lovely vintage coat rack for only $5.
I, of course, had to add the shabby goodies to it!
 But it is somewhat practical.
 You can hang your coats on it.... if you have to!
 I am keeping really neutral in this area of the house.  I actually have been taking things away from my décor... I know... shocking.

 But I loved the all cream look of my handmade wreath from last weeks post.

 So now you even have a little place to put your shoes on... or set something down.

I know as a blogger it is almost against the law to have a chair with nothing on it....
So will sweet Dessa do? 
She is the cutest thing I could find!

  6. Great idea, to hang the baby shoes, with some lace, from your rack. You are so good at adding the extra touches. I am running out of table space, for all my goodies, so all your ideas are helpful.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers!
