Just a few of my favorite things today! I found a nice new ironstone pitcher while visiting some of the kiddos, and had my son ship it home to me. Thanks Ben! I think these are Peace roses inside of it. Are all peachy/yellow roses Peace roses? (I think peace roses are more yellow with just a tinge of pink--) I love to decorate with white roses, and love the look of them, but the color of these just cheers me up and has long been a favorite of mine.
My new favorite bench is a barely pink chippy version with a slot for carrying. It must be pine because it's pretty light to carry. It fits perfectly at the head (or end) of my dining table and really lightens things up. It's quite old, and I think one might safely call it a primitive. What do you think?
I thought a vignette in front of my favorite chippy cabinet might show off the barely pink color. And I think everything looks sweeter with some smooth folded linens on top!
And of course I have a soft spot for delicate crocheted pieces. This small tablesquare draped over the bench is one of my very favorites. It feels completely cottage farmhouse country to me. My favorite decorating feeling.
The whole set up is capturing the mood I'm in lately. Thinking of spring and enjoying soft colors. Wanting to avoid too many objects and strong tones. Something just nice, and quiet, and soft. . . .
