Color of the Month June 2018

June! Suddenly it feels like summer is in full swing! We’ve been gardening away, which absolutely needs its very own blog post, and enjoying patio dinners, and a weekend away here and there. This month blue and green are on the scene, let’s get right into color of the month!

Fave vintage: salt n P’s, little wood figure, glass shakers, cuuuute little vintage kitchen still in the package-parts of it are tumbled over but I can’t figure out quite yet how to not rip it to get it stabilized in there. And Marcrest Stetson Swiss Chalet mugs, cute Lustroware recipe box, Holiday thermos, and a vintage napkin on the big gold tray.

Fave vintage: tablecloth, blue stripe napkins, texas ware melmac plates, Iris glasses, a wee bouquet from the yard, and an artgoodies organic sailboat tea towel because it’s basically summer! Don’t forget to look for lots of color of the month items in my vintage shop.

Color of the Month March 2018

March! Spring Fever has officially set in even with the bitz of snow the last couple days. I’m constantly looking at seed catalogs and dreaming of the garden. We picked up some bare root blue hostas and a few seed packets as well. We’ve already done a basic yard cleanup and edged the sidewalk and curb out front so once it gets a little warmer we’ll easily be able to rake the leaves protecting the fresh sprouts and off it will go. We’ve got a plan for making the strip between the sidewalk and street grass free and look forward to making a new green space there. We’ve been dreaming up some other projects as well and are researching here and there. So, this month, ode to green in thinking about green sprouts and gardeny goodness with a splash of St. Paddy’s in there. Enjoy!

Fave vintage: depression glass cups, cut glass green juice glasses, fun mugs, and a little tea canister, anchored by a vintage pale green edge napkin. All available in shop, except the juice glasses!

Fave vintage: ivy tablecloth, green striped napkins used as placemats, plaid napkins, dogwood and church steeple glasses that remind me rummage season is almost here! Green melmac dishes, jadite plate, green jar, the addition of lovely flowers including a cabbage that feels very St Patrick’s day, and last but certainly not least, an artgoodies organic cotton nest tea towel. Bring on the spring green!

Color of the Month June 2016

June, full garden revamp is in effect! Plants, plants, and more plants, digging, moving, removing. The cottage garden is in, my veggie gardens are in and my backyard is in the midst of a mini makeover so color of the month is GREEN all the way! On a more serious note, I’m dedicating this color of the month post to our family friend Jim. He passed away Memorial Day and will be greatly missed by my family. His inquisitive mind, quarky sense of humor, and kindness will not be forgotten. I could never thank him enough for how much he believed in me and my business. Always following what I was doing, buying pieces, even though I would be just as happy to give him whatever he wanted. Jim, maybe you’re still reading these from a new place of comfort, peace, and rest-we love you and will miss you, and thank you.

Color of the Month March 2016!

March! Yes! Getting close to Spring and green and gardens and plants, my fave! I got a nice dose of Spring while I was out in Seattle. I also got a nice dose of seasonal allergies there at the end of my trip which I was mindful to just embrace while I enjoying the daffodils, crocuses, gorgeous blooming camellias, and other amazing flowering plants and bushes that really popped. Plus, I find that having a dose of pollen from a trip pre at home allergy season helps in an immense way, so I should be all set this year! Anyway, ode to all things green with this color of the month. A bit of a dingier green mix, the kind that starts to surface from the grungy muck of post winter.
