Coastal Tablescape




Hello everyone,

We are having beautiful summer
weather here.....it changed so
quickly from cold to hot this
year.

So we have been enjoying some
time at the cottage lately.



I got these pretty dishes at Ikea a
few months ago and I love their
coastal flare with tiny sailboats
on them and the blue and creamy
white was perfect for our cottage.


A starfish adds a coastal look
as well. When we walk on the
beach here we often see little
starfish at low tide.


        Our table set for two.....the teaset
            was a lucky find at the 70 mile yard
sale a few years ago.


I enjoy the view as we have
our meals.

                                                      Thank you for stopping by and
                                                                  I hope you have a wonderful
                                                                  weekend!

                                                                                      Take care,

                                                                                             Carolyn

Victoria ~ Flowers & Gardens





     Hello everyone,

   I hope you are doing well.
       Here,on the Island everything
     is becoming lush and green.
      Our garden has lots of color
        as the tulips and daffodils and
                 other spring bulbs are all blooming
                    now. All the birds have been singing
              away as they have built their nests
        and are caring for their  young.

          I was excited to receive a copy of
      Victoria's  Flowers & Gardens 
   magazine in our mailbox last
    week as our garden is featured
again!
 

I enjoyed curling up with a cup
of tea and enjoying all the beautiful
features.
It is on shelves now so you
can pick up a copy to enjoy.


Our tulips are blooming now
so I am happy to enjoy them
in the garden but also in bouquets.


We spent some time at Ocean Song
cottage lately where we had no internet
so I wasn't able to post  but did
enjoy walks on the beach and
reading my books in the
evenings. Sometimes
that is just what we need.

                             


Thank you for stopping in and I hope
you have a great week!

Take care,
Carolyn
