Vintage chintz..... porcelain roses..... and a bit of French whimsy....









Vintage Chintz Drapes

It's getting cold outside so it's time to re-hang the heavy drapes.  I found a pair of gorgeous chintz barkcloth drapes some time ago at a local flea market for $35.  My hubby helped me hang them this weekend.  
Fabulous!  A perfect fit.  
With that done.....  the little nook beside the sofa needed a makeover.  I went shopping in my basement and this is what I came up with.  I collect Murano glass mirrors, porcelain roses (of course), vintage rhinestone clocks and old wedding toppers.  It came together beautifully.  I purchased the Marie Antoinette lamp at my favorite antiques store "The White Rabbit" a couple of months ago.  She needed a special place to reign.  She now sits atop a pink antique needle point stool I found over the summer.  
Picture perfect.

O! I love those blingy clocks! I have not seen those before. Did you buy them that way or did you add the rhinestones to them? Beautiful!
