Buffet Part Two


The buffet, in the dining room, has been re-vamped. 
Just as all of you suggested.


I added a runner, elevated the urn, and added the cut holly.


I love this vintage oval print found in Athens, Georgia.


The swan may be the best dressed one in all of blog land. 
Joe gave me this scarf on our honeymoon. 
The vintage riding helmet came from the same sale in Athens.


Cuteness


The vintage tablecloth, hanging on the door of the buffet, was terribly stained but I rescued it with Oxyclean.

Thanks to all of you who helped me re-vamp the buffet. 
The original post is here.

Happy Christmas

  1. It's lovely Olive, and I'm officially j-e-a-l-o-u-s that you have holly growing outside. I've tried to grow it here without success.

  4. Yeah for Oxyclean. Love the stuff. Also love that old riding helmet. Now they are big thick things for safety but not so charming. Olive I hope you and your family have a blessed and wonderful Christmas.

  16. Hello Olive,

    Just found your blog after my daily visit to Mockingbird Hill Cottage. I read the about you page and fell in love! On my ipad now writing this comment before I head off to work. I'll be back to visit to look around at all your photos and stories. Love what you have done with your buffet!
