Happy Monday to all!
What a gorgeous weekend we had, I hope yours was equally as lovely. We had temperatures in the upper 90's F again or upper 30's C!!! And it's a beautiful sunny morning with temps of 76 F already at 9:30 a.m.! I am loving this summer!!!
Today I am just playing around because I wanted a lighter feeling on my eating area buffet. I know I photograph my buffet and kitchen a lot, but this is a cottage blog, not one of the fancy-shmancy decorating blogs. If you're tired of seeing it, tell me and I will try to come up with something different.
Today I also want to recommend a very smart lady and her gorgeous blog. I found it just yesterday, although I have been to her blog before I was really struck with it's beauty yesterday. It's called The Pear Tree Cottage.
Check it out!
Okay, on with what I have today.
I normally have my silver on this sideboard because I love the looks of the dark silver and the white contrasting with it. But I have my milk glass up there for now, a much lighter look for the summer time and I've added a bit of turquoise and red with it, too.
Sometimes I like a formal feel to this area, but right now I am wanting a more playful feeling. See the little red maple leaf plaque? I made that about twelve years ago, maybe more, it feels good in here. The hearts nestled up to the vintage turquoise container are two that my oldest daughter made me about twenty years ago. I am missing my youngest grands and their parents, so I have the digital photo frame in here again where I can enjoy their photos. The daisies and lilies are from my garden.
I rediscovered this very old bread canister in storage yesterday, it was my mom and dad's. I am guessing that it is probably from the 50's.
Can you see the red and turquoise that I have added in? I am loving it!
Have a beautiful day my friends and check out Nita's gorgeous blog where she is hosting my favorite Monday party Mod Mix Monday!
I know my home is a mix of modern and vintage, so I like to join in and see what others are doing as well. This is what my kitchen looks like with it's new summery look, I hope you enjoyed yourself!
WISHING YOU LOVE IN YOUR HEART...PEACE IN YOUR SOUL..AND JOY IN YOUR LIFE.....ALWAYS...
