Been feeling a bit sentimental lately. Do you ever have days like that? So being in this mood I brought out these old plates that were my grandmother’s. I remember us having family gatherings at the table and eating with these plates. It was a long time ago but I have such good memories. Only the three little sisters remain.
Wasn’t my mother beautiful? She only wore lipstick and a touch of foundation. I shared this photo with Anita Diaz/Far Above Rubies and she shared it on her Facebook page, I believe this past December. I didn’t know if I had what it took to be a blogger yet. I am still learning so much and love it!
Currier & Ives, “The Old Grist Mill”, Underglaze Print by Royal. It looks like it may be a snow scene, which is perfect for this time of year when it is hot. From my grandmother’s table to mine, so thankful for that.
I am so blessed that I have those same dishes! I don’t have all of them but to have just a few is so meaningful.
Loving silver this time of year since it looks so cool to the touch.
This fabric was actually left over from a sofa I had recovered at one time. I still love it.
Even thought it’s hot I love setting up table settings and vignettes outside this time of year. Everything is so alive and green!
The blue hydrangeas are really showing off this summer.
The roses had seen their best day so I put the rose petals in the birdcage for a different look.
I love these colors and am always drawn to them. The birdcage was originally black and I spray painted it with car paint! It is supposed to be a light gold but I see silver.
