Transferware Lunch in the September Garden




Hello everyone!

   I hope your weekend is going well.
    Although we still have lovely days in
       September there is signs of approaching
       autumn so it is nice to enjoy these sunny
       but cooler days in the garden as much as
possible.


So, I thought I would share one of my
favorite tablescapes from a couple
of years ago in our September garden.

                                                                    I have always loved variations of the
                                                                    Cabbage Rose pattern and have collected
                                                                   bits and pieces over the years.
                                                         My friend Snow and I had fun setting
                                                         the table out under the old apple trees
                                                         in our garden where it was nice and
                                                         shady on a perfect September day.
                                                                  We layered the table with linens and lace.

                                                           A bouquet of flowers from our garden
                                                           and my red and white transferware were
                                                           used.
                                                                   We had a great harvest of cherry tomatoes.



                                                              You can see our Gardener's Cottage in
                                                               the background.

                                                                 Some fresh rustic bread

                                               It was a beautiful day to enjoy a
                                                          late summer lunch in the garden.
                                                             If you would like to see some of
                                                          my favorite summer garden tablescapes
                                                         you can click Here.

                                                          My thoughts and prayers are with
                                                          all of you who are effected by the
                                                          Hurricanes and hope you will all
                                                          be safe.

                                                                          Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                         Carolyn

Summer Bliss




Hello everyone,

It has been awhile since I posted
and I can't believe it is almost
September.
However, we have had a beautiful
summer and I have been 
enjoying spending time
relaxing at our Ocean Song
Cottage by the sea.

It was a calm peaceful day
with the tide rolling out
so a little time on
my vintage chaise
was the order of the day!

                                                                     Lemonade and a healthy snack
                                                                     along with a book was all I needed
                                                                     to enjoy some peaceful relaxation.




You can see a fishing boat off
in the distance and I enjoy
listening to the call of the
seagulls.

                                                                                   



                                                                 Hope this isn't too many photos but I
                                                                 enjoyed capturing the moment for you.


                                                                             



                                               With all that is going on in the world today
                                                          I am grateful for these peaceful moments
                                                          in time.
                                                                          Thank you for visiting and
                                                                           I hope you have a wonderful day!
