Woodland Flowers

I really can not resist taking pictures of flowers. New in the garden this past week were the bleeding hearts and foam flowers. You will notice a reoccurring theme with my flowers pink, pink and more pink.

I love the pale pink color of these foam flowers.

I can't wait to see what pops up in the garden next week. How about your garden, what is your favorite flower to have arrived so far?

Dining Room Pretties

Now that I'm starting to transaction back to the cottage, I am reminder all over again why I love it here. Beside being in a beautiful location close to Lake Michigan, the cottage is wonderful. It is bright with soft greens, pinks and creams, it is old built 80 to 100 years ago and loaded with charm. One of my favorite rooms is the dining room, french doors, high ceiling and wood floors.

This is one of the little tables that brighten that room.

Nothing here is expensive most of the table top beauties came from the thrift store, tarnished silver for few dollars, some of the candlesticks are from Target.

The table is an old school desk that my sisters and I used when we were kids. Back then it had purple striped contact paper on the top. It is amazing what paint and changing the knobs can do…..

In the background is my neighbor's partially finished but oh soooo charming shed.

I'll have to take you on a tour of the rest of the dining room soon……
