While I am waiting rather impatiently for my hydrangeas to bloom, I decided to cut a few flowers to bring indoors.
I cut single stems of geraniums and a hot pink perennial flower (not sure of the name.) Below is the flower from my garden in 2009, does anyone know what it is called? Rose Campion, thanks Mindy at Rindy Mae.
Old and new mixed together- vintage milk bottles, an old crocheted doily and modern white dishes from The RealCanadian Superstore (I bought place settings for 16 a few years ago for buffets.) I shared our kitchen updated photos on the post below this one.
The buffet and hutch provides lots of storage for white and cream dish collections and seldom used appliances. I really need to search for inspiration and practice styling the buffet top.
I love that the white linen curtains on the patio doors seem to soften the morning light coming in. We get a lot of light from a skylight in the cathedral ceiling directly above the table, and another skylight and wall of windows to the right in the end of the family room.
We desperately need to spend some time this week weeding our backyard garden and adding mulch. All the rain we have had and being off for surgery combined to make the weed situation pretty bad. We also need to find a spot for that canoe on our patio.
A few simple blooms in some lovely vintage milk bottles, or other collected bottles or jars, can really help to brighten a day and add some personality to a kitchen.

"Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbor.
Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes. "
The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.
