New Year's Greetings and a Vignette!


After tearing down the Christmas deco and having open surfaces again, I decided to start here.  While bringing things back out to the living room and kitchen area I picked up this plate that was my Moms and decided to give it a try on the credenza.
Mom had a fair amount of blue and white porcelain asian pieces.  I have more that I've never shown.  Mom is in assited living, 98 years old now. 
My favorite Pottery Barn candle holders.

I went to my storage area and found this blue and white deco ball so I decided to give it a try too.  The african violets seemed like a good choice to add some color.

I think generally this is farmhouse style.  Asian meets Farmhouse?

I like this combo, what do you think?

My amaryllis are still putting out blooms.  I'm so impressed with these bulbs.  Definitly try to buy bulbs that are the larger cm measurements.  They are more mature and put off more stems with flowers.

What I am most impressed with is that all three colors I chose are blooming at the same time.  My first blooms occured early on in December so I'm delighted that the've kept going!

I hope your New Year is starting out well.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Liz, I always love to see how you will decorate the credenza. I love those white candle sticks. The flowers are so nice. I am so ready to see flowers outside again. Blessings, stay safe, xoxo, Susie

  2. Hi Liz,
    I love your credenza with the blue and white along with your pretty candle sticks it works lovely together.
    Have a great rest of the week. xoxo Kris

  3. What beautiful light in your home! I love the blue and white look and that amaryllis is a stunner!

  4. I really like the chunky candle holders and how you have used them. It's nice to have clean slates to decorate. I've been changing things around this week as well. Happy New Year!

  5. “Asian meets deco.” I like it! Who’s to say they can’t peacefully coexist in a vignette?😀 I’m glad to see your enthusiasm for getting things back in order post-Christmas. It’s always a challenge, partly because we live the glitz of the holiday decor so much and partly because we’re just plain tired from the holidays! You’ve jumped right in with both feet using your creativity to make your home peaceful and beautiful.

  6. Oh Liz, you have such beautiful taste. I love your layout! The flowers are so pretty! A green thumb you must have! Ha!! Thank you for sharing your mother’s plate it is lovely!


  7. So pretty Liz. Your mom's plate looks fabulous there. A lovely combination of styles. What a gorgeous Amaryllis is gorgeous. Happy weekend.


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
