You may wonder why I seem to have an obsession with lovely things placed on tables and chests and mantels. I think it stems back to watching my mother arranging flowers and shells and paintings and books and bits on tables around our house and our beach house growing up. I remember thoughts going through my head whilst she was playing around arranging things like - 'What on earth is she doing that for? What's the point? She is weird.'
But it seems that for some very strange reason I too now love moving things around on tables. There is something so therapeutic about it. I love it. I love seeing a table in a house against a wall or behind a sofa which has so much stuff on it. It is so interesting and really shows personality and a love of beautiful things.
I recently came across this painting above on Pinterest by Elizabeth Cummings via Brabourne Farm blog. It is so beautiful. That's how I want my tablescapes at home to look. Filled with interest and imperfection and love.
Talking about tablescapes I thought I would post this one above which sits in our front window at Black & Spiro at the moment. With all that has been going on with the online store I feel like Black & Spiro has been a bit neglected of late. Gosh it's hard juggling everything!
Oh well, all you can do is try I suppose!
