This and That

Hello everyone,

I  can't believe it is already September and
summer will soon be over but for now  the weather
is still lovely  here.

I  am just sharing a few photos that I took in the past
few weeks.

                                                                   Relaxing at the cottage

We continue to make little changes at
the cottage. One of my daughters gave
me an Ikea chair to match the one we 
already had and another daughter gave
me the striped rug on the floor. I bought
a new lamp at Homesense and I can't resist
the striped turkish towels when I see them

The new throw on the back of the Ikea loveseat
was also a gift from my daughter and the Ikea
loveseat was a birthday gift from my husband.
The pretty navy pillows were a gift from a friend
so I have done well in the gift department!

A summer afternoon tea

I love the vintage tablecloth that I
found recently.

Strawberry season is past here now and
I have been picking blueberries on our
own bushes I like this reminder of  the
bounty of summer. Love the Golden
Celebration roses from our garden as well.
Thank you for the nice comments and emails
and I hope you are enjoying these last days
of summer too.

Good Morning, Carolyn!
There is so much GORGEOUSNESS here! I can't wait for our trip soon!
Hey, that Royal Albert "American Beauty" pink rosy teacup looks familiar! Lol
Wishing you a beautiful day,

Your beach cottage is so dreamy! I just love all the soft blues and whites and all of the wonderful detail. Your yellow roses are gorgeous. We have peach roses in full bloom now and they smell Heavenly. Yes... summer is winding down but I'm still enjoying the warm (hot) days and cooler nights... well... we don't have cooler nights yet! but they are forecast for very soon! We did go camping up in the mountains last weekend, and I KNOW that it got below freezing there. Have a great week! Marilyn

What a lovely post! I love your cottage style. Who wouldn't want to sit down to tea at that oh-so-gorgeous table?

Love all of the blue and white stripes, so fresh. And "Golden Celebration" is my favorite English Rose! It's hot, hot, hot in Southern California. Wish I was on PEI to enjoy your beautiful fall! Warm regards, Barbara in SoCal
