Little Details Make Me Happy

Sooooooo......
last night I was drinking my glass of wine.........
And I looked over to my left, and loved the vignette it created while I watched the
 Real Housewives of Hell!!!!!!!
So I had to run and grab my camera, because I just loved the way all the greens worked together.
Then I thought.......
"Betsy.....you need to write a post about how all the greens go together while you drink wine!!!!!!!!!"
So this is what I'm doing.
obviously I love green.....
The little cabbage leaf plate is what I use for a coaster, as I sit and watch TV and scarf down my dinner.
It's Wannopee Pottery, and I have a whole collection of them hung on walls and spread around the house,.
The little green box that's in the background of the vignette has a rose on its lid, and a chip on its corner.
So that you could see it.....I took another shot of the vignette from a different viewpoint this morning, because that's the wonderful blogger that I is!!!!!
I've had this box since my 20's, it's green milk glass and I love it.
I DIDN'T CHIP IT!!!!!
This is what can happen when you are too lazy to clean your own house.........
I have a set of tiny multicolored dishes from Japan.
I use the green one to hold my pills that I have to take.
BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY!!!!!
As a child of the 60's, I am proud to be on so many drugs!!!!!
And last but not least is the glass that holds my wine....and my water.....and my milk.
THAT'S RIGHT.....MILK!!!!
I drink a glass every night before I go to bed.
Lactaid Skim Milk!!!!
YUM!!!!!
Livin' large in my 60's!!!
So, my advice to you is to drink wine and skim milk and create vignettes by grouping items with a similar color or theme together. 

But I think the most important lesson to take away from today's decorating session is:
Drink wine and milk.....not necessarily in that order.....

On that note,
Latah, Gatah.....

Oh, wait.....
I don't want to forget the green accents in my lamp.
scroll back up and notice the base, lampshade trim and leaves around the flower.....

The lesson I take away from this is to live with what you love and to group like items together ... especially items that make you happy. (you know that I LOVE the rose stuff!)

I turn 60 next week and have begun drinking a glass of red wine every night. I'm entitled but I swear it is for my heart so I don't have to take all the freakin' pills I'm suppose to. As for the milk... no thank you unless you put a lot of Nestlé's chocolate powder in it. Do they still make that stuff? Love the vignette and yes, things do look better with wine.

Another great post. I ordered your book and it came yesterday, I am totally enjoying it. And you are right, everything is better with a glass of wine.

My 2yr old twins have been creating vignettes around the house that really haven't been pleasing my eye. I bet wine would make my house look lots better. Lots of wine.

I was a teenager in the 60's so ah...I can relate. In fact our generation was a psychedelic vignette. lol Funny how after a glass of wine you see things in an entirely new perspective. And that's a good thing.

Ahhh... green! Can it get any better than that? Love your vignette!

I love this post and the first pic is perfect. However, I'm looking for the lampshade to see its trim! I think we need more pics. :)

Janet Garon said...

I really liked the first shot when you were whining...um drinking wine! Love the lamp but you didn't show enough of it. Please show it in its entirety. I love green too!

I have just entered your decade, and like the anonymous reader above, i also treat myself to red wine. AND dark chocolate. You gotta take care of your heart! The only way I could drink a glass of milk before bed is if it were accompanied by a piece of chocolate cake or a brownie, thereby negating any health benefits! I also love green.....and turquoise....and coral......and yellow. Hey, that could be why I collect Fiesta!

Amy Chalmers said...

Nice post! This is the good stuff....and wine is always better tasting in a pretty glass.

love it all! Pill taking is very exciting isn't it? The green is beautiful, so glad you wrote about your vignette

Oh, thank you for such a great belly laugh this morning! "Living large in my 60's!!!" Stuck me SO funny. Probably because I can relate. Love your green vignette. Love your blog! Thanks, Robin

You crack me up. Be careful that your writing doesn't outshine your decorating talents or else we could lose you to a literary blog. Love the decorating and love the humor. Thanks!

This looks like such a beautiful drinking glasses! It's been ages since I've been to the Hudson Valley but my husband and I were just talking about how we wanted to go!
