Photo Challenge: Vignette

Photo Challenge Vignette is two fold this week. The first image is the actual vignette and a subsequent one shows it in the context of the room. Here is a cloudy day vignette of my little deer. I am somewhat obsessive about keeping the yellow house neat so there is no big reveal in the fuller view image. meds for that!

Now the living area of the yellow house and the chest with the Mid Century Modern Lamp that one of my readers told me was hideous (you know who you are). I thought that was terribly funny.

That is our daughter's picture hanging above the chest. She passed her very important test on Tuesday!
Thanks to all of you for wishing her well and we give God much credit for her sense of peace while taking the test. She has test anxiety big time.

Do visit Chania for more challenge links at Razmataz.

  1. Cute deer in the vignette! I could use a little of that "neatness" OCD... just sayin:@)

  2. Love the cube RSVP pieces under the bell jar.

    I could stand to be a little OCD.

  3. Hi Olive,
    Thanks for telling about the photo challenge! I love the alphabet dice under the cloche. I found an old game for $1.00 yesterday that had some alphabet dice.....won't tell you what someone had spelled with the dice when I opened the box....someone with too much time on their hands!

  4. I love your little deer. At my house OCD stands for Outta Control Dust! ;-)

    I don't think your lamp is hideous at all, and I'm so happy your daughter's test went well!

    Kat :)

  5. Olive, I love that little chest! The deer is precious, and from what I can tell, that's a great lamp. Your daughter is so pretty.

  6. I love your little pottery lamp! It's perfect in your sweet vignette.

  7. Olive, cute vignette and I am so glad to hear your daughter did well.

    I have started to

    are over....just
    wintery and natural.
    Happy Friday!
