FRIDAY: Vignette Friday

Wow! Week 5? I can't believe it, and we're picking up steam which is even more exciting! There were 1,761 link clicks on last weeks post - and over 4,000 views! That's fantastic! Vignette Fridays was created for inspiration in design, and all of you who have linked up have provided tons of inspiration! So let me thank each and everyone of you who is joining this week, and everyone who will make the rounds to get inspired by their creativity!

This week, I am sharing the vignette I put together just the other night in our living room. You might have seen this in the little video I put together, but here's a chance for you to see it without it moving on you in just 5 seconds or so. It's two old iron door weights, or "props" from probably about 1950-1955. Could be a bit earlier, but not much. They're a great styling item and I use them all over the place. Plus, they remind us of Wadju, Scott's Boston Terrier who unfortunately has passed, and our Boston Terrier who many of you have met on the blog, 'D' short for Diablo, as he is definitely a little devil!

  1. Love your movie and your vignette. It inspires me to work on vignettes more. I always consider them a byproduct of the creativity I have been exploring on this blog. I will see what I can do to kick them up a notch. Great work!

  2. Love this Artie! Books are so much fun to add to a vignette for visual interest and texture. I really hope to join you next week!


  3. Artie, your vignette is beautiful and reminds me of my sweet little Boston Terrier who is no longer with us. Her name was Trixie and she certainly was full of tricks!

    Thanks for having me today. I have joined in for the first time and can't wait to see the other vignettes.

    Best wishes,

  4. I love it, Artie! My grandmother had one of those doggie door stops and I always think of her when I see them! I hope you are having a great week!...hugs...Debbie

  5. Someone in my past had similar door 'em! joining your party again this week - thanks!

  6. Thank you for hosting Artie. I really appreciate the invite. I look forward to the inspiration.

    Blessings, ~Melissa :)

  7. What an innovative way to use the doggie door stop! Love the expression on their faces... I can almost imagine the devilishness that is going on inside their minds. LOL

  8. Artie-LOVE the little vignette! I have about 100 dogs in a collection from my childhood. There is one of a Boston terrier with an ear "injury" that has been wrapped in a bandana. It was always my favorite one. I am passing them on to my grandson.

    Thanks for all the little joy you bring to my day! Diana
