Vintage Summer Monday

Something happens to me in June that I really can't explain. The preference for cottage colors comes busting out all over me just like the song. My patio furniture still needs serious dusting off but I need it NOW so I just throw something over that matches my mood. Audrey here is indulging me as model for a little vintage dress I came across.

I never use colors of this intensity any other time of the year. But they are so cheery in summer!

I learned to embroider when school was out some long summer ago when I was about nine. It was probably the most pleasing thing I had yet learned to do. And I am addicted to sweet embroidered things to this day.

My lady vase just screams "thatched roof cottage in the woods"!

How many times did YOU wake up with chenille tracks on your face after a nap?! If you're too young for this--sorry you missed it.

All this old McCoy pottery held a happy place in households not so ever long ago. Did you EVER see a more cheery color combination?

My morning glories are only about two inches high in the garden so far, but there's no need to wait!

Ciao for now! Here's wishing you a joyous Vintage Summer Monday!

Please pop on over to Melinda's at Alabaster Rose Designs for more Vintage Summer Monday!

I love all your vintage summery goodies that get to come out for a season. I remember the chenille bedspreads. I had one on my bed when I was little and I am sure I had ridges on my face, too.

Love this blog post...Ooooh yes!! I too woke up with chenille tracks...How endearing for you to mention this is your post! you bring back those well rested late afternoon naps a child.

Everything here reminds me of something in my past, would love to visit your shop:) but a bit far for a day trip!

Thank you for your Visit and sweet time in leaving a comment on the place settings dinning with the birds.

Have a passionate week.

I absolutely love your post!! The chenille blankets are so wonderful. I still have a few myself, and I do remember waking up with marks on my face from the pattern. They always make me think of a summer afternoon.
Thank you so much for joining me again for Vintage Summer Monday's. I'll be back with the party sometime in July once I'm settled into my new home.
Take care and have a great summer.
