My favorite vignette

Good evening, everyone! I hope your weekend was lovely and restful. My son was out of school today for MLK, Jr.'s birthday and I am so ready for him to go back tomorrow. I love him but. . .:) Anyway, on to today's post.

I'd like to share with you one of my favorite vignettes in my home. I'm not that great at creating vignettes. I agonize over what to put with what and I always second guess myself. But this is one of my favorites (mainly because it shows one of my favorite photos of my son when he was little).

This lamp was a Kirkland's find a few years ago. I got it and its twin on clearance. I love its curvy lines.

This candle and the silver candleholder are from Hobby Lobby, one of my very favorite places in the world. I honestly think I could live there. Just give me a little cot in the back and I'd be a happy camper!

I found this little bowl at Michael's a couple of years ago, also on clearance. You're not going to believe what I paid for it--79 cents. Yes, you read that correctly. A whopping 79 cents. I ended up getting three of them! I bought some white glass to put in it and nestled in the glass is a tealight. It's so pretty lit up at night.

Well, that's it for today. I hope all of you have a wonderful evening. Thanks for stopping by!

Linking up to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.
