Soft & Pretty Vignettes

                                                                 Hello everyone,
                    Hope your week is going well. It is  a beautiful sunny day here but last night we had very heavy rains and with all the melting snow it has caused some flooding on roads and in some basements as well. I took a walk to our brook and it was running like a river this morning- a muddy river at that!
     I am still working on projects ,so I haven't had time to take any new shots but I have some soft and pretty vignettes from around the house to share.

           This reminds me that it is time for my tea-it won't be as pink and pretty today as this one though!

Thank you for stopping by,

Hi Carolyn,
Hope you're not working too hard.
I love the photos, especially the first ones - that cup with the flower design inside is devine. All of a sudden I'm craving a mint! Lol The soft pink roses almost look like they could be made of paper. Lovely 'works of heart'.
Take care.

Oh my! The pink is so soft and gives me a feeling of peace and stillness. Love it. Had a lot of pink at one time and decided to see and do all whites. This post sure makes me sad that I no longer have the pieces. May have to go pickin this weekend.

Your photos are always such a treat! I could almost smell the roses and the lilacs. Oh wait, that fragrance is probably the little pot of white hyacinths I bought to give me hope that Spring will indeed come to our cold and northerly part of the world!

Oh, Carolyn, not for the first time have I wished to come and live at your house! What a pretty in the pink tea. Love every single detail.

Hello Carolyn
For many, many years I have read your blog and savoured every delicious moment of the experience. Today, I want to personally thank you for helping me define my home and gardens style, your inspirations, ideas and creativity helped me transpire my home from a house to a "home" one of soft and gentle beauty. Each and every post supports my decisions to soften the look and feel of my environment. Thank you again for enriching so many of our lives with each and every stunning post! As soon as I finish my Aiken inspired kitchen I will post photos on my blog and let you know. Have a blessed weekend and look forward to many more years of blissful and beautiful posts from your home! Lori Kolecki

Beautiful shades of pale Carolyn! I recently spotted a large car with a Prince Edward Island numberplate on a car park of a supermarket nearby. so weird. It made me think of you immediately :-)

Hope all is well, with your mother too?

Happy weekend,
