About a month ago, I quietly added another link to a very special blog that I absolutely LOVE. OK, not just love, but am completely obsessed by and obsess over- daily! I know, me, obsessed with something? So out of character…
The site is called Vignette Design written by Delores, an uber-talented interior design consultant in Northern California. It all began with the very first post I read; it was all about these wicker chairs. It was posted at 9:15 AM on a Saturday in June and by 10:00 AM that same Saturday, I was at the Cost Plus World Market, buying the chairs. Actually, make that plural, Markets, I had to go to both the store on Scottsdale Rd and the other on Camelback Rd to get all 6 of the chairs I needed (needed – not wanted!) for my patio.
I went back and read through older posts and found out about an online store that Delores loves called Timeless Settings … you guessed it, I’ve purchased a boatload of stuff from the store, including this tray and a few of these baskets.
Last week, Delores put up a gorgeous post about her own obsession, the glass front Sub-Zero refrigerator.
These are just two of the many drool-worthy photos. And yes, I found the precious milk bottles, pictured below, online and am anxiously awaiting their arrival from UPS.
Just two days ago, after being blown away by her series of “kitchen vignettes”, I did the unthinkable – I moved the Cuisinart, KitchenAid, and Vita-Mix off the kitchen counter to finally make my own vignettes! The appliances are currently in the storage room in the garage until I can figure out what to do with them and somehow make it work.
Tossed aside machines above, my new vignettes below…
I stole several of her ideas; the tart tin atop the candle holder, a bird’s nest on a fancy plate, a pretty little glass filled with fresh herbs, and most importantly – little table lamps on the counter. As I told Delores, I have no idea how long this will last, since I use one or more of those machines daily, but it sure is pretty in my kitchen right now. Don’t you agree?
I’ve been so inspired by Delores, that my creativity juices are seriously flowing, check out the craft project I undertook in tomorrow’s post (I am not a craft person, so this was a stretch!) Thank you Delores, you make me “ooh and aah” daily!
