January CupboardScape

Good evening friends and Happy New Year!
With 2016 starts another year of CupboardScapes,
With the idea from one of our customers Barb,
I am going to feature a different monthly vignette
in a suitcase.

This month I thought of doing my version
of a stone church in the woods.

Bob and I recently attended my nephew's wedding
in Hickory, NC.
The wedding took place at night in an old stone church.
The church lights were dim with lit candles in each window.
Along with large candles in glass vases on the floor
of every other pew.
It was a beautiful ceremony.

Here I have taken my stone church birdhouse
that my mom gave to me as a birthday present years ago...
never actually left it outside for the birds.

Added new and vintage bottle trees.

Along with a few mini Christmas trees.

Then added this book.

An early leather book from 1861 that I purchased
from Seville Antiques in Ohio.

This book is titled
Sunday School Psalms.
I thought it was just perfect for my vignette this month.
I did not plan this when I bought it...
I just thought it was a sweet little pocket book
to add to my growing leather book collection.
I remembered I had it when I started to take pictures,
and quickly added into the pocket of the suitcase.

What do you think of this month's CupboardScape?
Look forward to your comments.

More to come on our vacation.

New Year Cupboardscape Blessings To All!
