A new coffee table vignette…….



I found this herbarium book on eBay a few weeks ago.

It was less than $20 so I simply could not resist.

It found a spot on the coffee table paired with an old ledger book.


Each description of the plant is handwritten…….

so beautiful!




Have a great week my friends!

Such an amazing find,Des! How I would love to have one like this. The pressed specimen looks a lot like the wild geranium that grow here. :)
Have a lovely one,

What a treasure! I am shocked someone would give it up for $20.00! It's always such a treat to see photos of your beautiful home!

Happy Tuesday, Love your vignette!
I'm always looking for examples on how to pair things up. I love the look of orchids but haven't had any luck with them; but maybe in my new sunroom.

I love it when you post pictures of your house, Des. It look so beautiful. Did you have new slips made for the chairs? Love the rug, and the old table that D made is back! YAY!
