Many moons ago, Mother carefully carried three wonderful statues all around China in her backpack. They have rotated in and out of her decor, popping up in various rooms, over the years. When I was looking for something gorgeous and blue and white to sit atop sconces on either side of the huge mirror in my bedroom, she offered them to me!
I originally had these sconces (Ballard Designs Suzanne Kasler Jacque Bracket) hanging on a different wall in the bedroom. Unfortunately, it was right between the door and the bathroom and at a terrible height for being run into by Honey and two growing boys. They’ve been sitting on a shelf in my closet for some time now so I was pretty pleased to have a new place for them.
I’m really excited about how the room is getting a slightly new look. It all started with a mirror…
You can see my progress in these posts:
- Gorgeous new rug with amazing patina
- Chalk paint on the dresser
- 2 simple steps to an antique gold chandelier finish
- The China Men
- Adding Blue Mikado accent plates for scale
- Flemish bedside chests
- Baby’s Bottom sheets
- DIY flower arranging tips from a novice
- Acrylic curtain rods
I’ve still got a few more things on the docket before a reveal. I thought it might take until next year when my new bedside chests were on back order until January, but got the delightful news that they are coming today!
DIXIE DELIGHTS DELIVERED

The statues are lovely! And glad to hear you’re getting your chests earlier than expected! xo
Thank you!!! One one chest arrived :-( Need to track down the other next week.
Your statues are lovely. Consider putting them on risers to add importance. Like the small glass ones from Wisteria or in a pinch have a piece of wood cut and paint it.
I LOVE Wisteria’s glass risers! Great idea.
Your statues are beautiful! What a treasure! I adore blue and white pottery, and think that it is such a classic! I hope that you are having a wonderful day!!!
Aw, thank you!! I do love them. xo
Your room is coming along beautifully. I am so happy you don’t have to wait for your bedside chests. Love the blue and white.
Thank you!! I’m really happy with it so far. Only ONE of the chests ended up coming so I need to figure out where the other one is!
