I am in love with Sea Peas, and was thrilled to discover that there is a ton of it growing wild in our yard! We always grew it back home in Michigan, and it's always been one of my favorite flowers. I think it looks especially lovely in my vintage milk glass vases.
I also really love this white cotton tablecloth with pretty crocheted trim and fringe. I found it a garage sale earlier this summer for just $1! I didn't realize it til I got home, but it actually is a shower curtain. I'll probably use it as that someday, but for now, I think it makes a great stand in for a tablecloth! Proof that you don't always have to use things for their intended purpose!
I think the detail is just gorgeous! And to think it was only a mere dollar!
Such pretty and old fashioned feeling flowers, don't you think? I didn't touch up the color of the blooms, they really are this vibrant!
It's kind of hard to tell in the photos (I still don't know the "trick" to photographing milk glass!), but this compote has the prettiest diamond pattern. I also really love the scalloped detail at the top.
So pretty, and so romantic, I think!
This Fenton hobnail vase below is one of my favorites. My mom gave it to me years ago.
Don't you think that sweet peas resemble orchids, when you look at them up close?!
Another pretty vase, found at a garage sale!
My mom had a great visit with us last week. It was so nice having her here. We took her site seeing, and I took her to some of my favorite shops, which she loved! Hubby and I flew back with her to Michigan on Saturday. It was a quick trip home, as hubby had to be to work today. It was great seeing family, but it made me even more homesick for Michigan! Like many of you, Michigan has been having the worst heat wave for weeks, and it was super hot and muggy when we were there! So, I was actually looking forward to coming back to Washington, it's never humid here! We spent about 8 hours yesterday stuck at the airport in Detroit! What fun! I had forgotten than Monday is the absolute worst day to fly. The airport was a zoo, and we were beginning to think that we'd have to spend the night at a hotel there. Luckily we finally made it out late afternoon, yeah! Now that things are back to "normal" here, I can get caught up with all of you ladies!
Hope you are having a great week!
