Hey! How are you? I am sharing my pretty little flowers and Tea cookies. There’s tea brewing in the floral print cup, it has its own strainer inside the cup. There’s the solid light green creamer because you know some people like milk in their hot tea.
The porcelain young lady belonged to my grandmother.
Concrete cherub that’s supposed to live outside but I really like it inside.
The pink carnations almost look like a pillow here. I do like carnations but they always smell like the funeral home, don’t they?
White pitchers of carnations sitting on old silver.
This is wallpaper I have had for over twenty years in my dining room and kitchen. I know some people say no to wallpaper but I love it if it’s a paper that I love with lots of color to work with. My kitchen and dining room are open to the stairs.
You can see the wall where the stairs begin is painted green. I continued the green upwards. Running parallel to the stair rail I have a wallpaper border that is hard to see in this photo. The border allows me to bring in the neutral color. It ‘marries’ the green and the beige above it. So I didn’t take the paper all the way up. I felt like that would be too much. The neutral beige allows a good transition to the upstairs rooms. I really enjoy the stairs coming down into the kitchen. It makes the living room a much cozier place and more private. Your conversations don’t go straight upstairs like they do in the kitchen.
The paper is used through the kitchen as well.
And the bowl is for holding a pound of sugar. That’s what the tag said! Oh but I could go through that real fast with my sweet tea!
