Alabaster and Ovals

It's change-the-foyer-time again, and since I added white ironstone pieces in the living room the other day, I wanted to do something similar in the foyer. 
This time it's alabaster and ovals...
...an oval box with a bee skep...sort of a French garden graphic?




...oval ironstone platter...


...alabaster lamp and book ends...


...a glass bottle, and just enough space on the chest to drop my keys and sunglasses...


The door was nekkid, so I covered an old grapevine wreath with some brown paper... 


...then I used a piece of burlap ribbon to hang it, and wrapped an old shell necklace around that for decoration.




Well, it isn't exactly pretty, but at least the door isn't nekkid any more.
I'm so glad y'all stopped by, and if you have any ideas for indoor door decorations, I'd love to see them....pul-eeze, I need some inspiration. :)
Hugs,
Babs

I love the whole look of it. I'm just crazy about whites and have been trying to add them everywhere. Now, the wreath? That's just plain inspired. I have pinned it and want to try it. Fabulous!

Babs this is fabulous. So summery and fresh. Your entry is very similar to mine. Wood chest with a mirror and lamp. Great minds and all that! You are so good at this sort of thing...pinning it for sure.
