A Peaceful Vignette

Good afternoon! I have been struggling with finding something to blog about. It is not that I have just been sitting around twiddling my thumbs. But certainly you don't want to read about sunburns, kids who won't sleep in, my never-ending "to do" list......

So, I believe I will share with you a peaceful little vignette. Welcome to my master bathroom.
It is so enjoyable to find things here and there that just seem to go together. It is even more enjoyable when very little money is spent. The little $5 table spent some time in the living room, but recently moved to the bathroom. I bought the mirror at an estate sale a couple months ago for $2. The empty frame was $1 or maybe $2.

Do you know what this chippy white metal piece used to be? It was a light fixture from the porch of our very first home that we owned; a nice reminder of our beautiful old house in Kansas.
For a $1.50 I definitely couldn't pass up this little silver loving cup. Now, go here to see the pretty egg soap. Make sure to look at the prices. These eggs are beautiful, but I could never pay that much for soap. Instead, I found a bag of these (six eggs) at an estate sale for $1. Honestly, I kind of felt guilty for buying pretty soap. That's usually not my thing.
But, look! Even the tag and ribbon are pretty! And now that I know how much they really cost I don't feel so bad. In fact, I love them even more.
I could have used the other three egg soaps here, but I wanted something different. The little polka dot saucer is by Homer Laughlin. Again, I think I paid $1. I would love to find more dishes in this pattern. The thread spools are from my stash and the "cloche" was 39 cents at the thrift store.

Pretty and peaceful. And cheap! Do you have a favorite vignette in your home right now? I would love for you to leave me a comment about it (and a link to it). I love the inspiration I get from fellow bloggers. Thanks!

{First of all, I ask you to pray for everyone. Ask God to help and bless them all, and tell God how thankful you are for each of them. Pray for kings and others in power, so that we may live quiet and peaceful lives as we worship and honor God. This kind of prayer is good, and it pleases God our Savior. I Timothy 2:1-3}

Vanessa - thanks so much for your comment! I think the idea of the white pillow with a number on it on the black chair is brilliance! Thanks! I am so glad I found your blog. I really enjoy what I've seen on it. Well, you just saw my favorite vignette of the moment! :) I saw on your profile that you're in Arkansas. I went to college in Arkansas. I liked it. Hope you're having a good Sunday! Kelly
