My Foyer Chest

A couple of years ago I went on a "hunt"
for a new piece of furniture for the foyer.
I always check out the local
antique shops first and usually have good luck there.
But after our search, we came home empty handed.

We finally found this new piece and
I am pleased with it. 
Although it doesn't have the character or an old piece.

I found this parrot lamp at Kirklands
on sale and knew right away he
needed to fly to my house.

He's just a character and keeps
watch at the front door
to welcome our friends
when they come to visit.

Hubby spotted this pretty plate on an expedition I took him on. 
I was proud of his "good eye" that day.

I admire orchids but have
never brought one home - except for this silk one.
I found these in a local shop
and added them to this
metal container with reindeer moss.

I wanted to show the pretty detail
of the legs of the chest.
(And, yep, I used the flash - had to.)
