My new Pedestal....I'm in love!

Before I joined the world of blogging I never had any pedestals...or thought much of them for that matter! Now I have seen so many pretty pedestals and neat ideas for making pedestals that I am loving the whole pedestal thing. I have used cake plates and I recently bought a metal pedestal that I painted white...but I wanted something more. I had seen this pedestal on a blog...I can't remember which one...but it was the second time I saw it and I loved it. I was on the look out for one...they were made by Southern Living...which is now Willow house, either way it was a retired piece. So to ebay I went...and found a couple. They were priced kind of high but one was not too bad. I bid on it in the last 8 seconds and won! I am loving it...and so happy that I got it! I just say it's an early Christmas present ;)

I got another pretty find from Willow House, it's in my dining room and I will be sharing that soon!

Hope you all have a warm and cozy night,

Till next time,
Rachel

  7. That looks so pretty! I once had one of those pedestals. Did you know that I used to be Southern Living at HOME consultant before they became Willow House? I used to have A LOT of their products. I have paired down a lot since then though. That is a classic piece and I know you'll enjoy it throughout the year. It looks good mixed in with your holiday decor.

  9. Hi Rachel, how funny your opening comments are. I didn't have a lot of things before I starting blogging either. And what a great find you've got with the pedestal and it looks wonderful all dressed for Christmas.

  19. Hey! Yes your display is awesome! So much you can do with your pedestal! To answer your question about our elf! My sister sent him to us a few years ago for Christmas, but I have seen various specialty shops carry them...maybe even book stores! Good luck and thank you for stopping by threepixielane. Christie

  22. I'm loving your SL pedestal a kicking myself because I got rid of mine a couple of years ago. That was before I started blogging and gave a lot of things away. Silly me. Your vignette is so pretty. Merry Christmas to you!!!
