Clocks. Need an object to perfect your vignette? Look no further than a small clock. Its size balances this grouping of the candle holders and lamp, plus it's functional. Check out some antique stores to find one with a unique face.

This setting is particularly interesting because it is being built around a picture frame. This frame might be also a watercolor you made yourself or anything that involves a personal memento, like an old wedding picture or a particular travel strong moment that you like to evoke.
