Tuscan Style Vignettes

Hi there, friends! I hope you had a great weekend! Today, I would like to share some Tuscan style vignettes I created last week.
Ok y'all, I went to Ross last week and found some Tuscan - style jugs. I snatched them FAST and they were VERY inexpensive. I placed them on my Hobby Lobby outdoor table that I use indoors. ;)
I tried them in several different vignettes and thought I would share the pictures. I tweak, tweak, and tweak some more until I get it just the way I like it. ;)
Mr. Roo found his way into the arrangement.  I'm really into yellow and green right now.
I found this pretty plate and bowl at Marshall's last week and placed a French Garden ball into the bowl.  
I love these French garden balls and you can buy these at Real Deals.

I tried it two different ways. I 1st placed the plate on a plate holder in one of my wire cake holders, and set the bowl and garden ball inside it. 
I  then moved it to the dining room table and placed it on a place mat.
I got a Baker's Rack at Hobby Lobby last week and had fun decorating it.
Faux Pears sitting on a bed of greenery, perfect for Spring!
Here is the top part of the Baker's Rack.
I'm starting to add bits and pieces of Spring here and there!
Marshall's has a lot of inexpensive pottery. I bought this pot and dropped another French Garden Ball inside it! 
I brought my Tuscan bowl into the vignette and placed it on a wicker tray, added a bunny, and some pastel Easter Eggs.
In the photo below, I was playing around with different ideas and ways to incorporate the jugs into a vignette.
I added a little moss to make this vignette look a bit more rustic in appearance.
I experimented with the jugs and dropped topiaries into each one.
Green, green, green....I'm addicted to the color green! ;) It's my favorite color, all different shades of green. 
I love cozy corners with lamps...
I even played with different tables, ha! 
This table won!
I added this metal Roo and added greenery.
And then added a rustic black mirror above the shelf.
I played with the idea of using a placemat behind the plant to add some texture.
And here is the vignette without the placemat.
 Bring on the Spring decor.....
I hope you enjoyed all my "tweaking" ideas. Tweaking is the fun part of decorating, as it allows the creativity gates to open up. The possibilities are endless.;)
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Very pretty vignettes, Liz! I love using greenery, too. Love those greenery balls you've used. I always like to check out Marshalls {and TJ Maxx} for home décor things. They seem to even have quite a bit on clearance so I always check that aisle first.

  6. It is always so much fun visiting you, Liz, and seeing what you are doing/creating. I love those little boxwood balls. They are a perfect little filler, aren't they? We don't have a Marshalls here but wish we did. It all looks so nice. You have a way of making everything warm and homey-even in the Spring. xo Diana

  10. Nice finds with the Tuscan jugs, Liz. I haven't been to Ross in months, since I moved in to my new house!! You always find the nicest accessories. I like all the green and yellow together. It looks so springy yet still has that Tuscan flair to it. Thank you for always inspiring me with your beautiful decorating! I sure need it! ;o)
    have a happy Sunday~

  17. That's funny both of us focused on "tweaking" this time! You came up with some cute ideas! You are so lucky to have all those discount stores to grab up some of these wonderful accessories! I bought a new metal roo last week! I like how you incorporated him on that shelf.
