For my post today I thought I’d share how to use a small statue in your home decor…
Depending upon your season start with a favorite statue you may have ~ a bust of an angel or a patriotic figure from history, perhaps. If you find a vintage angel no longer used at a church that would be a fun piece to use in your decor too.
In this Christmas shot I created angel wings from a bird ornament I bought specifically for this project as I was decorating with mostly all white this particular holiday season.
I love small busts and fell in love with a Napoleon Bonaparte statue which the designer and author Charles Faudrée used in his country homes’ decor.
I had seen it a number of years ago in one of his books that I have in my library collection. When I spied my little maiden in a local thrift shop I grabbed her and ran!
Statues add that je ne sais quoi quality and aire to a room which always looks rich and fancy. We may not be wealthy but we can add a little fanciness to our decor for not much money. My Grinam Niam bust is a copy but I love her just the same as if she were the genuine thing!

Add in a candle or two and decorate your little statue with your favorite jewelry or strands of pearls. Use a bookmark pinned around your statue’s neck or draped on her head like a headband then place a small pedestal or vintage piece of lace underneath.
Finish your look with a vase or display of dried flowers and you have a quick and easy vignette to grace a window or table anywhere in your home. Simple + quick to do!
