How do we decide WHAT to display & HOW to display?
Sometimes it all just comes together…Sometime not so much.
Sometimes you have an idea & it works on the first try…sometimes you try & it just doesn’t work – so maybe you add something or take away or just start over.
Here are a couple snaps from around the house:

I’ve been loving the color combo of soft aqua & red together lately. So I amassed some of my aqua colored mason jars together in a metal basket & looped jute ribbon throughout to soften the edges a bit & bring in a bit of red to this area. I’ve been enjoying it every time I walk by…
Some of my enamelware collection & vintage kitchen items that I just put up above my cabinets (not sure how long I’ll keep them up there – but it’s been fun playing!)
Notice there are also the hints of red on the pots up there & aqua in on the vintage kitchen gadgets & on that aqua basket.

Some vignettes from earlier in the summer:

soda crate that I’ve added a variety of jars & canisters to – tied them all together with the same green polka dot ribbon…in the summer these held bunches of lovely daisy blooms

Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special


  1. I love all of yours! Fabulous!

  2. I love your style and you have gorgeous stuff!

  3. Great vignettes and great style! I spotted your lace creamware pedestal plate right away, I used lace creamware in my vignette post too. I collect aqua mason jars too, and I really admire how you added the metal element and layering with the metal basket and trim.

  4. Everything looks so pretty! I really love te trays and metal peices you put behind things. I makes them look more special.

  5. Ohhhh cool. I LOVE the 'happy quirks' in your decorating. By that I mean, the slightly unusual that makes you smile.

    Ice blue canning jars, rustic jute ribbon, fresh white elements, vintage cookware, old signs, beautiful white hutch, metal accents, it's all so interesting to look at and takes awhile to really grasp in a glance.

    LOVE it!

    Thanks for linking up to the party!

  6. Wow, so much prettiness. And your photography is absolutely killer.
    Great stuff!

  7. Love all your vignettes. Everything is totally my style. I have my own version of the pottery barn metal 3 tier thingy, except for my 3 tier thingy is glass. But I did the candy thing on the bottom layer.

  8. So thrilled to have found your blog. Lovely post with lots of eye-candy!
    Thanks! Deborah
