Vintage Style



                                                      Hello everyone,
      It was nice to wake up early this morning to the sound of rain as it has been dry here and the garden really needed some moisture.I am sure the farmers are happy for the rain as well.
 The vintage pink cannister set came from Timeworn Treasures and Antiques and the vintage china I have had for a long time.
                        I took these shots a few weeks ago when the peonies were in full bloom.

     

                                      I can't resist sharing a few more photos of my peonies.

                                                       Love the soft aqua and pink together.
                                                            A little vignette in the 'boathouse'.
                        I hope you enjoy your day and thank you for visiting me!

                                                                                   Carolyn

I have some pink canisters as well and they are a prized possession. Unfortunately they don't match the burnt orange paint in our rent house kitchen. So the live in the pantry for now. Beautiful pictures as always.

Carolyn...I can almost smell those beautiful peonies! Don't you just love them?!!!! They look so good in all of these pictures, with your beautiful canisters and dishes etc. I love the delicate pink color...and the ruffly layers of soft petals.

Isn't it fun how the smallest things in life are usually the best...and how amazing that these small treasures bring us the greatest joys???!!!

I thank you for sharing this with us today. Have a blessed day!

You have so many lovely peonies. We need some rain too, but according to the weatherforcast only the end of next week we can expect rain. We'll wait and see.

The canisters are pretty, and in good shape. I wish peonies lasted all summer, yours are lovely.

Love aqua and pink together too. Adore peonies too! My kitchen is aqua and yellow, a nice combination too. Aqua just seems to make other colors happy.

Anita said...

Oh my goodness Carolyn, these are my FAVORITE colors and you have so many pretty things!! Those canisters are to-die-for and the plates...what is the pattern?? I was looking at Royal Jackson Countess Margaret that looked very similar but with a different rim. The peonies are gorgeous of course also. Just beautiful!!

Very sweet in pink, Carolyn.
It was nice to hear the raindrops here as well; the first rain we've had in a couple of weeks. "Slurp! Slurp!", says the happy garden! lol
