Fall Vignette Variation

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Pansies and pumpkins... 
Staples for creating fall vignettes...

Do your vignettes emerge in a smooth, continuous 
burst of creative energy? 
Mine don't. 

Before I was finished with my latest 
French Fall Vignette below, 

I started with this 
Fall Vignette Variation. 

Now, I really like this combination of items, 
especially the egret tin container of French violas 
with their happy purple faces. 

The tin makes me think of fall with its bare branches and muted colors. 

The white egret complements the white pumpkins, 
and the soft green background complements the green leaves 
of the French violas.

Plus the green background of the tin goes very well 
with the preserved boxwood bouquet. 

Yes, I like this combination, 
but ... 

when I spotted my French-wire basket, I knew it 
(1) looked more like Fall with its rusty finish and 
(2) would enhance the French Country theme of my home. 

So, in creating vignettes, I find it best 
to try more than one version. 

Which do you like better? 
The egret tin version or the French-wire basket version?
