Powerful Words

If I can stop one heart from breaking,   I shall not live in vain.  If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain,  or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.  -Emily Dickinson

Hi friends,

I feel that a little beauty can always lift our spirits a bit.  I am really challenged to put together pretty posts without fresh flowers.  I always buy my flowers at Trader Joe’s.  Trader Joe’s is one of the most popular places here so I have elected to stay away for a while.  I am doing a little vignette with things around my house.  Hope you will enjoy this short post and it might brighten your day.


I have set a table in front of my fireplace.  I have had this white and gold box for years and decided to fill it with flowers.  I added two candles with gold accents.



I bought this horse from a small gift shop many many years ago.  It has always had a special place in my home.


I have two of these bird candle sticks but could only use one on this small table.


This sweet little vase is so precious and I use it often to hold a Peony bloom.  I love how the bow is made into the vase.




Bob gave me this Willow Tree statue entitled Promise for one of our anniversaries.


I cannot tell you how many years I have had this vintage footed/ball solid brass candle holder. I envision Washington or Lincoln writing an important letter by the light of this candle.


I hope these pretties might bring you just a tad of JOY for this day.  Just putting it together has lifted my spirits.

  1. Beautiful vignette my sweet friend! I loved the box filled with flowers and the lovely brass candle holder. During these times, any refresh or setting of a table helps our emotional well being. Stay well Dianne and Bob!♥️
