Tulip Love



Hello everyone,

The beautiful month of June has
arrived and I love how fresh and
lush and green everything is here.

I am enjoying all the tulips in the
garden but wanted to pick a pretty
bouquet to enjoy indoors.


                                                                          This is the first year that I grew these
                                                                          big,bold dark pink and white parrot
                                                                          tulips.

I wanted to add some fresh flowers
in the Boathouse.



I made the pillows on the bed in
the Boathouse.





A simple mason jar makes a
perfect vase for my garden tulips.



I freshened up the Boathouse for
the summer season. It is a charming
little retreat when the garden chores
are done for the day!

I hope you are all doing well and 
enjoying some peace and beauty
during these troubled times.

Take care,

Carolyn

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
