Early American Vignette

Hi All,
I thought I would share with you what I have in the spot where the Christmas tree stood.
A corner vignette with my sewing rocker, fireside stool, winter arrangement in a Tiffany vase and a floor chandelier.
A closer look at the Early American rocker...

The winter arrangement...


The fabric shades...
Hope you are all staying warm and cozy. I am linking to....

  8. I have an old rocker as well. Mine is not early American. I also have a little stool like yours. They call it a milking stool.

  12. I love that rocker Robin and the arrangement is gorgeous!
    I remember when my Mom always called her decorating style Early American, so just that term brings back memories!

  15. I have a vintage rocker, too. It's the one my daddy bought my mama when she was expecting me. I'll blog about it soon.

    I love your little cozy corner. Those shades are so pretty.

  16. Love the rocking chair. My mom had one that folded. It was made in Quebec many many years ago.
    Did you know that worrying is like rocking in a rocking chair? It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere.

  20. Your header is "picture perfect," Robin! It looks like a Christmas card. I just love your Cape cottage.

    Your Christmas tree replacement vignette looks sooo cozy. It's great that you had something so inviting to replace the tree with.

    Thanks for linking to my party. I look forward to seeing what you link up each week.

  28. Hey Robin! Thank you so much for moving over to the new blog! I really appreciate it. I appreciate the invite to visit your blog too. I have been so busy trying to create a new blog and posts and getting the word out my visiting has taken a bit of a back seat. I'm trying to do that some tonight. I love rockers in the house but do not have one myself. I don't have anywhere to put one right now and would have to buy one so it's one the back burner for now. My mother has a great sturdy wooden rocker that I sit in everytime I go over. They are wonderful when they are moulded to fit you. I also like your winter arrangement I am working on something "wintery" to show soon to fill in the empty spaces left from Christmas too. Thanks again for visiting, it's always good to hear from you!
