Gathered Treasures

Shabby water stained print.
Tiny pots for mini violets.

A light weight silver pitcher.

Some greens for the picture.

A light weight arrangement for Jarvis to hold to greet guests.

Up close.

Fern fonds to form the base

of this arrangement for

the coffee table

in the great room.

Little moss pads

to put on silver plates and cover with cloches.

Now we need one more silver plate to finish it off.


  1. Love the moss pads! Where did you find those?

  2. Such beautiful things. I love the way your accessorize. Everything always looks so elegant and wonderful. Thanks for always giving inspiration. Hugs, Marty

  3. Oh, I like the moss on the silver trays and then adding the cloche over a pot! Cute idea.... Good job on the great room arrangement. I cannot wait for my remodel to be done and I can put my house back together again... I'd like to do the cloche idea on the trays.. thanks.

  4. What inspired ideas!! I am so glad I found your blog!!! :) I love all the silver and putting the moss with the cloches. How fun!!! :o)

  5. Wow! What great inspiration here! Love the moss pads, and everything is so pretty! :) ~hugs, Rhonda

  6. Beautiful! I love how your placed everything!

  7. I love your treasures Sue, your vignettes are so pretty and I love Jarvis too :-), Kathy.

  8. Everything is lovely...especially the still life! I'm interested in the moss too. You must post about that soon.

  9. Hi Ladies,
    The moss pads are from a little shop in Bay City, MI called Violets Are Blue. If you call her she might send you some. Let me know if you have any luck with that. I get up there occasionally and could pick some up and get them to you if she has more of them. Not sure exactly when this could happen though. I think they run around $5.
    Hope this helps.

  10. Jarvis looks great with his new arrangement! I really like those moss pads. I'll have to be on the lookout for them, because I LOVE what you did with them. Love your style. laurie

  11. You have been creative! Everything looks great - so fresh for spring. I see the shabby picture you found up here and we all coveted - found a home in your kitchen not the office!
    Love - Sheryl

  12. Very, very beautiful! I love your lovely home!

    Blessings to you,


  13. You have such beautiful things, love the way you display everything.
