The Foyer {A Reflection of You}

It is said that your foyer should be a reflection of you…

…..when you enter a home, the foyer should set the tone for who lives there.

So I gathered some items for my foyer table that I thought reflected this house.

However, I must say that it would be mainly me…or there would be a baseball glove on that table!!

My stained glass piece in the foyer is not only indicative of my love for old architectural things…

…..but it is also a very sentimental piece…a gift from my hubby….

……….and you can read about my very “sentimental gift” at this previous post.

Always wanted my home to feel warm and inviting….for family and friends.

I bought this “Bless This House” sheet music book over a year ago at an antique fair…

And of course there are my favorite crystal pineapples on this table…

…..one of them was a birthday gift from my mom.

My treasured “Home Sweet Home” book by John Howard Payne, dated 1882 ….

…..I purchased this book about 20 years ago and paid $25 for it.

I thought back then I was paying a fortune for it..

……….but could not pass this book up and happy that I didn’t!

Added a favorite pic of my son and his family…a stack of books that reflect my style…

A classic lamp for a reflection of my traditional style…..

…..and one of my favorite flowers (hydrangea) nestled in a jadite bowl…

………..which reflects my love of vintage dishes.

So…is your foyer a reflection of you…your home…your family?…

Hope you enjoyed my foyer vignette today…a reflection of our home and what we love.
