check out the ever changing display at months end, what will it be next month??? stay tuned!
Color of the Month June 2017! We picked up a large lot of Fire King Azurite dishes at a flea market over Memorial day. The cool unique color inspired this month’s vignette and table setting. And in today’s heat a cool blue feels just right! Fave vintage: the dishes of course, birdie planter, deco salt shaker, ruffled planter, and charming vintage napkin. Pretty simple but packs a nice punch with the tablecloth! Fave vintage: Fire King azurite dishes, blue edged napkins, awesome tablecloth, and little milk glass vase with a snip of my America rose.
May! The garden has really really sprouted and we’ve begun yard work. We’ve been chopping down scrub trees, done a bit of weeding, and I sold my beloved vintage Knoll patio set to help pay for the new roof, but purchased another cool vintage set that folds easily for storage. Stephan dug out a new area in the front of the house and we’re working on new plans and plantings. This is the worst allergy season I think I’ve ever had but I’m hanging in there. I also just turned 40. I’m still processing that a bit, but the over the hill theme inspired this black and white and red color of the month, ha. Fave vintage: thermos, graphics on the cloth box, coffee tin banks, canisters, kitschy bowling item, tiny salt and p’s, strawberry jar, and Ebonette cups n saucers. Fave vintage: cute tablecloth, Knowles Ebonette dishes, red striped napkins, and a few hosta leaves for interest.
Better late than never! Here you go April color of the month! Stephan wanted orange so I whipped up these little stylings.April 2017 color of the month table setting! Fave vintage: melmac plates, glasses, milk glass cups, awesome tea pot, great tray, orange napkins, using a retro bedspread as a tablecloth for a real pop! And an artgoodies butterfly towel! #vintage #tablesett
Color of the month! Let’s talk green! The flippy floppy early spring feeling weather has me thinking double time about gardening! The tulips, crocus, and daffodils are starting to peek out and saying hello. We are talking about garden expansion and revamps and can’t wait to get planning and digging. So, color of the month March 2017 is green in honor of plants!
Color of the Month February 2017!!! Valentine’s is a couple weeks away and so festive red and pink vintage seemed the way to go. Plus with everything that’s happening these days sending a little extra love out into the world seems necessary.
Wow, sorry you guys, I seem to keep getting behind on my blog posts. Hope your New Year is off to a great start! The only thing missing here this January is the SUN! How about some winter blues for this month’s color of the month! And it won’t be long until the February edition! Just around the corner!
It’s mid month and yep, late on the color of the month post. BUT, for good reasons like getting married!!! And for not the best reasons like recovering from surgery. So, this month I give you color of the month in aqua blue along with rehearsal brunch bits too! I have been saving up aqua vintage because, well I love it…and I always imagined using it for a wedding shower or party of the sort. SO, when it came down to our rehearsal wedding brunch I knew exactly which direction I was headed! Color of the month, here we go!Stay tuned, more wedding details coming soon! 🙂
September! I’m a bit behind on the post but it’s Wedding Month! SO, lots to do at home and out and about, thinking, planning, doing, figuring out, gathering. So, back to color of the month…tomorrow is Stephan’s birthday and so this month he requested orange!
Woah, hello August! I’m a few days delayed with my color of the month. Distracted by wedding planning and adjusting to my new awesome life with Stephan. 51 days to go as he informed me today! SO, this month I incorporated a few of his pewter pieces in giving a gray and pink theme. Kinda fun to have a little twist on my usual setup!
July, bam, here it is. Let’s celebrate sunshine and warmth with yellow! I find this time of year super dreamy with all the plants and flowers and gardening that’s abound. The cottage garden is looking great and producing delicious pea pods, onions, radishes, lettuce, and herbs. Here at home we’ve been doing a major overhaul on the yard. It hasn’t looked like this since I put the gardens in about 10 years ago! Turns out my fiance is an amazing yard machine digging up the bamboo grass that wandered all over the zen side. Let me just say I could barely even get the shovel in the ground and he was digging trenches. The man is utterly amazing in all ways. Friends who have so far seen the yard in progress are speechless. I’ll post some pics when it gets all mulched up. So back to cheery color of the month! Three cheers for being able to enjoy the outdoors, nature, cottage time, picking fresh food and flowers from the garden, and being with people you love.
