Move, Change, Rearrange

Reading blogs makes me want to
move, change, rearrange.

So, I stopped to shake things up a bit.

I knew it wasn't quite right.
It's amazing what just a lift will do.
Which do you like best?

I just love my soup tureen.

I've photographed it before.
This time I seemed to capture
the crackled, aged finish.

I'm off to peek in the windows of my blog buddies. 

Happy Weekend, 


I have enough ironstone now to set a table.
I'm looking for just the right tablecloth or place mats.

  1. Wow, lucky you, Bonnie. You have enough ironstone to set a whole table. I wish I had half that much. I really love ironstone and have picked up a few pieces along the way but I'd like to find more..Happy Weekend and I like both ways you arranged your pretties..Judy

  2. Changing the height on the vase made a nice difference! I like it,

  3. Isn't is amazing how changing things around a little can give us a boost. I like your new rearrange. Ironstone is my own personal favorite. xo Laura

  4. Thanks Bonnie..I always loveeee what your do..I think I will take sometime today and do the same around here, set the fall stuff /things out..Blessings

  5. I get inspired by blogs also....including yours of course! Love the changes! I'm ready to rearrange a few things for Fall!

  6. I really like that change. I wouldn't have thought to do it though. :)
    Your soup tureen is brimming with charm!

  7. Your soup tureen is gorgeous. It's perfect for a table setting. I see you have a new blog design. It's pretty, and it's nice to change things around once in awhile. I would change mine all the time, but Jess does the design part of the blog, so we just change it once a year. Oh Bonnie, I really admire women who have their own blogs and maintain it as well as you do.

    Happy September!


  8. I love the lift that you gave your vignette. You have such a knack for making everything so attractive.
    Enjoy the weekend.

  9. Hi Bonnie, Amazing how a few little changes in our 'stuff' --and in OURSELVES can help!!!!!

    Love the soup tureen....

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  10. Oh that soup tureen caught my eye. I love the aged look, so pretty.

  11. Your tureen is a the old patina! And I agree, raising a piece can make all the difference!

  12. Yes, the subtle change is very inviting to the eye.

    Your stoneware and soup tureen are just so special. Will look forward to your table setting when you have all you need.

    Been so busy...trying to get a little blog visiting done.

  13. You have an artistic eye...and it shows. Lovely!

  14. Hey peeper girl...You made me laugh when you said you were going peeping. I love all your white things. I have got to change things around here. Just will have to wait a week or so. Blessings to you and yours. xoxo,Susie

  15. Love the look! I was just thinking, I see Bonnie peeking in the window:) Have a blessed weekend, HUGS!

  16. What did we do before blogs? Oh yeah, magazines. But I like blogs much better! I love your ironstone soup tureen.

  17. I like both arrangements...but the "after" with the riser looks even more wonderful!!
    We didn't have much of a summer this moving into fall this year is difficult.
    LOVE your ironstone!!!

  18. They are both beautiful, but I think my favorite is the re~arrangement with the yellows... Happy Autumn decorating!... xoxo Julie Marie

  19. Your tureen is lovely...and your new vignette looks great! You can never have too much ironstone :)

  20. Love your decorating and your great eye for placement. Gorgeous tureen.
    Have a great week.

  21. Wow Bonnie these photos of your ironstone are just beautiful! I am trying to play catch up with my visits. I finally had to break down and buy a new computer.. You need to do a full table setting and snap a pic.. I know it would be beautiful. Blessings!
