A vignette to brighten a dull evening

I recently added a photo of this vignette to the header of my blog as I love it very much. It was hard to get the pictures to come out clearly as I'm not the best photographer in the world. However I think it came out ok.

If you are new to my blog then you probably don't know that everything I write about, are purchases, that I have made from Thrift stores,  Op-shops, Antique stores or Flea markets. In short, any second hand purchase. I do allow myself bargains from very low end shops aswell like the two dollar shop.

This little vignette came together after I bought this silver tea set from an Antique shop which was closing down. I already had a silver tea set but nothing as pretty as this one. Along with the crystal candle sticks I think it has made a really lovely vignette. What do you think?

Now at night it really came alive. The beautiful candle light just sparkles away devinely.

Here is viewfrom above so that you can see the individual pieces.
I love lighting up the candles in the evening. You can see below how they have been used often. The candles are nearly gone.
I hope that you have enjoyed your visit and come back soon.

I will be linking this to

  1. Hi Jo Welcome to blogging. So happy you found my blog. I see you added my link, however I want to let you know this coming Monday I have a different one time only linky party. It is summer paint projects. It is a big blog party starting Monday and you can see it on my side bar. I will see you the following week, unless you have a paint project to share.

  2. Very pretty! I love seeing silver used!

  3. This is a truly beautiful vignette! I love thrift shopping and finding cool stuff at great prices. Isn't it fun?

  4. I love silver my lady and you have a gorgeous tea set!! While I visit my daughter I'm blogging with you! Yeah!, here it goes, I'm so glad you remembered you gave me that idea, as I had forgotten about my black and white dishes, until I saw your scape, I had no idea...yep, I didn't iron the tbcloth much as it was nice hanging in the closet, so I just ironed the lines and when the dishes where there I started to pull it from both ends and it got really nice and flat! Thanks for the lovely and generous comments, my friends. Have a nice F's D. Love FABBY
