Summer Linens, Quilts, And Blue Bottles

We've reached our summer rainy season, which means very localized storms break out randomly throughout the city almost every afternoon. Not long after these scenes were set up and shot we had our biggest gully washer yet. But it's exactly what everyone hopes for. Our forests have been closed since the middle of June.


We keep things fresh in between with cool colors and cheery vintage linens. This has certainly been my year for blue.



But pink seems to find its way into the scheme of things too, with vintage print sheets and tablecloths taking the lead. And this week's bouquet of asters is lasting forever and ever, upping the cheer quotient.


Such happy colors make me glad to be alive on a mid summer's day in any kind of weather. I hope you're having a wonderful start to our last week of July too!


















































Have a great new week!
Ciao!for now!

Love your linens, the colors are so fresh and summery! Everything is so lovely, also love the table and little white stool, heck, I love it all! I have a thing for stools, they can go anywhere. Your photos are amazing! We usually get a bit of rain in the afternoons too, nice when it cools things down a little!

How beautiful! I love your bouquet of asters. Back in Ukraine, we always had asters blooming when it was back to school time, and many students gave them to their teachers.

Hi, Had to hop over from Cottage Monday. When I read linens, quilts, and blue bottles I couldn't wait to see. These are three of my favorite things! Love all of your pics. They are absolutely gorgeous. I love how everything looks and smells after a fresh rain. Glad to have found you. I am your newest follower.

Hi J,
This is one of my favorites vignettes! That faded blue table is delicious, shabby chippy perfection! All those pops of pink and the blue glass, really stunning!
Our sunshine ended it a burst of thunder this morning too, those two days of summer were grand, haha:-))
Hugs,

I'm adoring all the pink!!! My wedding colors were pale pinks & greens (with a dash of ivory & browns)...and looking at all that pink romance, just reminds me of our wedding day. :) Hope you are enjoying your summer so far!
