SEASONAL VIGNETTES












The French Hutch
Quimper Collection








Today I'm revisiting a few vignettes from this past year. I think it's a great way to look back at my first year of blogging (has it been a year already)? 
After a few spring like days with temperatures in the seventies I am already thinking about spring and wanting to redo some of my tabletops. Tell me please, do you enjoy looking back at old ideas to find fresh inspiration?

  8. Not long ago I was at an antique show and there was a booth of antique Quimper. I instantly fell in love. Your Quimper is absolutely gorgeous. I enjoyed your post.

  16. Emily I love everything!! You do such wonderful vignettes! Your quimper collection is stellar! And that fall mantelscape....where did you find those wonderful pots? Especially the center piece with the figural heads? Soooo cool! And is that a bonica rose bush? It's gorgeous!
    I was also so thrilled that you 'got" my crazy excitement over my table *winks* I'm not one bit surprised though that we had one of the same dream pieces on the list. I think we're francophile twins *winks* So you would probably know that $800 was a VERY good price for it......Still happy dancing! lol! Vanna

  34. I love your vignettes. They made me realize that as much as I have long admired quimper pieces, I am sorry to say I have never actually bought any. I admire your collection very much.

    I found you via The Tablescaper. My sister and I like plates/table settings, too. Thanks for sharing your ideas. Very cool inspiration.

    Btw, we are your newest followers. :D

  38. What a wonderful Quimper collection you have! I always stop and look when I see it but have only bought one piece, a pen and ink stand, that I was strangely drawn to. Interestingly, I've never seen another piece like it.

  39. I enjoyed looking at all your vignettes. I missed them the first time around. Sorry..:(
    So thanks for showing your favorites again. They're all wonderful and your rose bush is stunning!

    I hope you'll stop by my blog. I am hosting a giveaway for a $50 Kirklands gift card.

  41. Alison, I'm back for some inspiration! I've made a note of the tabletop urn filled with interesting textures on those pieces. I've got some large ceramic acorns that would look great in a piece like this. ;-)
    You know I love visiting your sunny Quimper. ~ Sarah

  42. Emily, I love all these images. Your Quimper collection is gorgeous. And you have some Spode Pink Tower which I think has been discontinued much to my disappointment. Please tell me if I am mistaken. That last photo of the flowers makes me so excited for spring and gorgeous flowers! Loved that you showed all these old photos, and yes I often go back and look at my older posts for inspiration.

  47. Emily, I came back to poke around YOUR beautiful blog a bit & wanted to say how much I love the way you layer your items on your French Hutch! I need to remember that when doing my baker's rack.
