A few days ago I created a sunflower bouquet and put it in a large ginger jar. It was sitting in the dining room until I decided to make a new coffee table vignette.
My sweet old coffee table was our first "nice" piece of furniture we bought back in the mid seventies. (Ethan Allen cherry, if you remember those days.)
I could have a new coffee table. In fact I have looked at them. But I have a sentimental attachment to this old colonial piece.
You know how it is with stuff that has been with you forever. It held our advent candles at the Georgian. It was the center of Christmas Eve in our living room. Lots of life has been lived around this old table. It has nicks and scrapes...but that is fine.
I just keep putting new tablescapes on my coffee table to freshen things up a bit. This time I brought in my sunflower arrangement, and then built around it.
I am using my gold pillows on the sofa still. I just like the happy color.
