Welcome, Emily!

When I put away the Christmas decorations I did this vignette on the end table in the family room.


I bought this pretty plate at Home Goods a few years ago for only $5.00, some of the black paint on the border was missing but easily fixed with a marker pen. I love bargains like this!

I like to display this pretty plate during the winter months.

After my grandson's recent engagement to his "Emily" I decided to honor her in this vignette by replacing the bird with their picture:

 It was a little hard to get a good shot because of the reflection on the glass

The vase is made from cord. I found it at Michael's last year.

 Welcome to our family, sweet Emily!

 The beaded edge of the lamp shade compliments the vignette.

I hope you enjoyed my "Emilie" vignette

Just perfect! I love that you were able to tie the photo of the love birds into the plate. (And thanks for that tip about marker. I happen to have a plate that needs that exact TLC.)

What a great plate and such a wonderful way to welcome Emily into the family. I am kind of glad it won't be the 13th, I am not superstitious, just like the 20th better LOL!
