Some Spring in The Foyer

This evening I shopped my home and put together a spring tablespoon to welcome guests into our foyer.

Last summer I purchased the bird card from a flea-antique mall.  The small succulent, came from Michael's Craft Store and I purchased it several weeks ago.  (40% off!)  I already had the see-through frame (also purchased on sale at Michael's).  I visited Vintage printable and printed the botanical.  Have you visited that site?  Amazing vintage prints, all FREE!    

The plant came from my kitchen.  I recently purchased the little wooden box and the old Listerine bottle from thrift and antique stores.

The silver ice bucket was a purchase from an antique-flea market many years ago.  It usually stays in our bedroom holding a silk fern.  I really love silver and don't mind polishing it.  I use it a lot throughout my home. 

The white runner also came from a thrift store.  I was surprised to see that it was Ralph Lauren!   

Here you can see the top of the mirror.  I purchased it in 1998.  I have fallen in and out of love with it over the years.  I have recently thought about painting it.  However, gold is trending back in. 

And another view from the other side.  

So, there you have it.  My FREE Spring tablescape in the foyer.  Isn't it fun to shop your own home?  And I am glad to know that most of these items were purchased on sale or second hand.  I do love a bargain.

Thanks for stopping by!  Libby~
