(Books="low", from estate sale, Bottles=priceless, were Mom's)
I love the high, low & priceless combo - in and around my home, my attire, jewelry - it's just about the mix for me!
Thought it'd be fun to see if you can spot the HLP items in these vignettes...
Low = bust from Tuesday Morning
Priceless = candlesticks of my Mother's, old books of my parents
(no "high" in this vignette)...
Priceless = vessel holding marbles (wedding gift from aunt...)
Priceless = Uncle Russ' marbles
Low = "crumber" from antique shop
Low = green pears
Priceless = the rest, i.e., Mason's Vista red & white (Mom's), silver collected from estate sales, fleas, old books that are gifts from friends!
Low & priceless = silver tray from an estate sale
Low = black urn for flowers (Tuesday Morning)
Priceless = every book in my home...
Low = "silver" compote from GOOD WILL for $2.00!!!!!
Priceless = sand dollars from a dear friend in North Carolina
Priceless = "JOY" stone from an angel in Cape Cod
I've just realized my favorite "stories" in my home do not have anything HIGH. Not a lot of money is needed to make a vignette. I have a lot of stuff aka clutter - but every, single item means something to me. I (rarely) run out to buy something to fill a space.
Today is a good day...since I am home (alone) after a busy few days filled with company and activities. I have to agree with Jane Austen here:
"Ah! there is nothing like
for real comfort."
