China, Red Tulips, & Lace






Beautiful red tulips arrived yesterday. So I brought them out for a portrait in the sun.





Well, under a shade tree, actually.  They are dressed up and ready, with a few bits of china and a little froth of linen for company.




A few vintage things out in the open air without anything modern to distract you can take you worlds away.






You can imagine you're living in a little French village, for instance.






Or conjure up a gathered trousseau from a century ago. . . .




































































Where shall we go tomorrow?
Enjoy your travels!

Jacqueline,
I usually leave your blog to view for the evening. With your soft pastel hued photography, I come away peaceful and ready for rest. Today, I dared allow myself to break routine with the hint of red tulips! Now I am revived and fresh to begin my evening rituals of preparing a meal and attacking the pile of laundry awaiting my attention! Always, dear friend, an inspiration abounds form Cabin & Cottage!
Fondly,
Pat

Boy, isn't that the truth? And look how you have taken us there!

I presume those gorgeous flowers were a MD gift?

Lovely, as always.

How many of your posts do I comment and tell you, "this one's my favorite!". I must say though, that since red is my favorite color, this one has to be my favorite...until next time that is.
