A Bit Country

Hello everyone.  Happy Sunday to you all.  Well, we finally had nice weather here in the Northeast.  How wonderful to finally have blue skies and warmer weather.  It seems as if everyone was out enjoying the bit of sun that we were gifted with this weekend.  Crowds were everywhere.  And who can hold us indoors with such wonderful warm days.  Especially after such a terribly cold winter.  Even my little pooch showed signs of joy.  He was even enjoying a bit of the sun in the backyard.

Perfect days to also snap a few shots.  Wanting to use a rustic wooden tray recently purchased from Home Goods, I gathered a few pieces with a bit of country style for serving breakfast in our sun room.




A neutral color Palette.  Checked fabric, rolling pins and pitchers give this vignette a country feel. 




A laid back attitude makes country spaces comfortable havens.  Weathered finishes, found objects and vintage pieces extend an invitation to be at home. 




Flowers on an old pitcher give the look a cheery romance.




Treasured Spode china.  Classic and timeless.






Take time to smell the roses.













I wish you all a wonderful week.  

Fondly,

Janet

  1. What lovely photos and the soft colors are so refreshing! Love the old vase. We spent the day antiquing and going to indoor flea markets. I found an old cuckoo clock I plan to paint shabby chic. I am excited!

  10. Gorgeous as usual Janet! I love using pitchers for vases! The roses are stunning! I have that same burlap bee container and I love it. I couldn't help but drool over your darling checked linens with the crochet edge. Did you buy them like that or add it?

    1. Hello Jann,

      I enjoyed reading your lovely comment very much. I love that burlap bee container too. It sits on my kitchen counter holding my favorite rolling pins which I use very often. The checked linens came that way. Thanks for visiting me. I do appreciate you stopping by.

  16. I think it's not too easy to associate objects in country style with the elegance of the flower of the rose, but led by your taste you've created some perfect scenes and wonderful shots that comunicate a deep serenity !
    Thank you for sharing xox
