make a statement

vignette {noun} 
{prounouced VIN-YET}

"The beauty of creating a vignette is that it's unique to you and what you want to express, and can be changed and rearranged whenever the mood strikes. "

In the design world, vignette's are all the rage.  They are a simple and cost-effective way to get the visitor to pause and find something unexpected and visual, and personal.  

Today I created one such vignette in my garden.  Using some Rue I purchased at a garden fair this past weekend, and rusty can from the garage and some leftover twine I hung this little number tucked into my viburnum that's finished blooming.  I love how the soft chartreuse leaves of the delicate Rue are a stark contrast to the rusty can.

 And another little piece I picked up whilst thrifting.  I just had to have it!  It was only $1.49, of course.  I'm not sure exactly where it will end up, or what it will hold, but I think it's wonderful.

Do you {heart} thrifting as much as I do??  Watch for a blog post coming very soon about my first full chair re-upholstery project.  Yikes!
