simple $8 update

Back in September I posted about my bedroom chest of drawers and its simple vignette.

I talked about how I brought Uncle charlie home and placed him where I could see him every day. You can read about that here.


I loved the simplicity, but after living in this bedroom for a couple of months I realized that even though this sits between two large windows, it is very dark on that side of the room at night and I couldn't see in my closet.

So the bird has flown away and I have added a lamp that I thrifted for $6 


and a shade that I pilfered from my mom's garage. Shhhh!! don't tell her. 


Love the birds and flowers and since I have been adding touches of blue to the room I decided to add these two vintage pottery bowls that I got at a yard sale for $2. 


I have had the pitcher and bowl for about 15 years. They were in the bottom of a box lot that I purchased for $3. I sold the other things in the boxes, but this pitcher had been broken and repaired at some point and so I decided to keep it. I think it just adds to its vintage goodness.


and for $8 I have an updated vignette.

  1. I believe I like that vignette even better! I like the balance of the white pitcher and bowl on side and the lamp on the other. I think your Uncle Charlie would be pleased!
