Vintage Style and Garden Bouquets



                                                                     Hello everyone.

                                        We are enjoying these beautiful last few days of summer here.

                                        Yesterday my friend Snow and I spent a few hours
                                         giving the Gardener's Cottage a vintage makeover.
                                         Snow has a great collection of all things vintage ~
                                         so just a quick peek today at the change in here.
                                             Vintage curtains and laundry on the line.

                                                   A lovely bouquet from the garden
                                                   in a beautiful pitcher and a hand
                                                   embroidered tablecloth.
                                          The beautiful hand painted box is a
                                          treasured gift from a blog friend
                                          several years a go.


                                                 Love this little vintage pink alarm clock.



                                                           Bouquets and an April Cornell tablecloth
                                                          give a pretty late summer look.

                                            I have a few tours coming again this weekend.

                                            By the way,this weekend is the 70 mile
                                            yard sale.......I can't go until late in the
                                            day so if you go be sure to leave some
                                           pretty old dishes and linens for me!!!
                                       Enjoy a cup of tea before you go.

                                                I hope you have a wonderful
                                                weekend!

                                                          Carolyn

Very pretty. When we bought our house 37 years ago there were pink ruffled curtains the same as the ones you have in the spare bedroom! So they're at least that old. Your flowers are gorgeous and appear to still be putting on a great show in the gardens. Enjoy the weekend.

Dear Carolyn, I hope you didn't blow away visiting the 70 mile yard sale! We're on the Island now, leaving tomorrow. I found some great things but not as much as I hoped. Please show us your finds. I would have loved to meet you, but did visit shops you've mentioned in your blog. Thanks for another beautiful blog! Sandi from MA-USA
