Vintage Silver and Crystal

My sweet hubby lives in a very feminine little cottage.
Lots of flowers and lots of pillows.
So ...

He has an area that is a bit more masculine ...
The Bar.
Vintage crystal decanters, an antique silver tray, deep
Balmoral red from Ralph Lauren on the walls
above the wainscoting.

When it's time for the cocktail hour, he is ready to fill the
vintage ice bucket and ask you ...
What's your pleasure??

I am joining

Bentley ~ would you like your Daddy to put an ice cube in
your water dish?? What's that? You want a vintage
silver dog bowl now???

Susan and Bentley


  1. I love David's bar area! How 'bout you and me meet up at RL by the fireplace, for a cocktail and some girl talk. If they are full, we can head over to The Palmer House, for one of their great Cosmo's in the that beautiful lobby.
    Yes, Bentley, The Palmer House is "pet friendly."

  2. We must give them their space.. LOl.. beautiful decanters and tray!

  3. Beautiful bar. Each detail is perfection, just as a table top bar should be.

  4. Doesn't surprise me that Bentley wants a vintage silver water bowl! He's a pretty upscale dog!

  5. At least he has good taste in what he likes. When he drinks anything he does it in style.

  6. Susan this is all so beautiful. The tray details are superb.

    I enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog. I'll be back again soon. Bentley is precious and makes me smile wide.

    Warmly, ~Melissa

  7. Beautiful collection. Always love visiting your blog. Very inspiring. ~~Sherry~~

  8. I'm not much of a drinker, but these kind of set ups always look so romantic and sophisticated to me. I love the idea of just pouring a drink on the rocks, but I don't think I'd ever be able to drink it. LOL

    That looks like a nice spot for your dear husband. Just gorgeous!

  9. how very James Bond of him, Or maybe the old spencer tracy movies I just love it. I need some of those decanters.

  10. That is so cute. My hubby has a bar in the Florida room and I have controlled myself and let him do "whatever" out there. He found a fridge, glasses etc and it's where we all go when anyone comes over. He did good just like your hubby.

  11. Adds a bit of shine and sparkle! Beautiful! Mimi

  12. Love the beautiful vintage silver and crystal. Hubby has an awesome bar. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Ginger

  13. I guess we have to give our husbands at least a silver tray to call their own in our homes! lol My husband owns our garage and I am NOT allowed to decorate it! This was a fun post..thanks for sharing.
    Blessings My friend,

  14. your bar area is so pretty, looks like a scene from a 30-40's movie, ready for a drink!

  15. I love silver and crystal and the red sounds fabulous!
    Bentley you definitely deserve a silver dish and perhaps a crystal dish as well for weekday use, hmmm?
    Have a great day Susan and Bentley!

  16. Oh, Susan what beautiful shots. I had to laugh, when you asked Bentley if he wanted an ice cube. One of my dachshunds, Bailey will fish them out of the water and wants to play hockey on the kitchen floor, it is too funny. I loved your post today!! Happy VTT!

  17. I love red! Your DH (dear husband) sounds like mine. He lives in a cottage with three girls, four including the dog, LOL! The bar looks lovely (and masculine). Thanks for the great pictures!

  18. Beautiful trayscape...the decanters are lovely.

  19. You have quite the generous husband. Lovely crystal...beautiful vignette. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay


Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
