you want to see more of my decorating-with-statues style, do you?
Terrific; I'm glad you came back for part two! ; )
If you missed part one, just take a look over here.
The type of statuary that has always appealed to me the most has been that of a romantic nature.
This wavy-haired cherubic figure, from the 50s, looked so sweet atop this vintage nightstand–painted pink by the Yankee, just for me.
And this gorgeous vintage piece was one of my all-time favorites.
I guess that's why I used it in my blog banner.
The open-urn top presented so many wonderful decorating opportunities–filled with: soaps in the bathroom; a pillar candle, atop the dining room buffet; a plant on a side table; and jewels, atop a dresser.
Did you notice the little golden cherubs in the background?
They've had the priviledge of playing all over my humble abode.
Truly...they have been around.
See what I mean?
This sweet-faced angel has watched over many areas of my yard and garden through the years.
Did you notice her when I shared the fabulous makeover of this Victorian table...
The place I call home is a cozy little cottage farmhouse tucked amid the beautiful rolling hills of North Carolina. I'm from a family of five girls raised in the South (G.R.I.T.S.), married to a born and bred New Englander...aka The Yankee. Follow along as I share the blending of our two distinct styles & personalities—the rustic and the refined, the prissy and the primitive—creating a home filled with the romantic union of Yankee ingenuity and Southern charm.
