Today, I spent some time rearranging and freshening the home of a client (and new friend) Barbara. She's been busying herself; getting ready to celebrate her daughter, Leah's, graduation from high school and has been slammed with party planning details. I was happy to help her out with accessorizing and reconfiguring some of her spaces and was even more thrilled to use numerous vintage family items in the decor.
Barbara has many wonderful old family pieces. I love the vintage school banner (above). As you can see, I had a little helper; Willow was quite intrigued with everything that was going on.
There's so much wonderful light in Barbara's home ~ I think it made for some pretty photographs.
Hubby will be quite pleased that his Nittany Lion (crouched on the table) has a place of honor.
The hutch is a family heirloom passed down from the homeowner's mom. The shelves were impossible to adjust so I decided to hang a fun Dallas poster inside (a gift from their son's teacher when he graduated from high school) and framed it off with a couple of antique clocks.
The building blocks are also a family treasure that has been passed down, as well as the black and white framed photograph of the old family homeplace.
It was a fun time accessorizing and arranging for such a special event. I enjoyed myself immensely as I learned about this sweet family and heard the stories behind so many gems (I especially love the grandfather clock above).
I left happy to have been a small part of the upcoming graduation celebration. Congratulations dear Leah ~ much love to you and your sweet family! xo ~ dana.
