Antique French Buffet Vignette

The other day, I revealed a new vignette on my mantel . . .

~ ~ and I took several pieces from the antique French Buffet to create the “mantelscape”

Therefore, needless to say, I needed to create a new vignette on the buffet.

So still with my dancing shoes on, doing the “vignette shuffle”, I started gathering items.

I added the French Trophy Plaque which was my very first purchase in France. The date was meaningful !!

The glass molds were another purchase from France that sit upon another French purchase . .

On the other side of the buffet is a vintage chair holding the antique French boot forms . . .
