The Colors of Cottage

Springtime at the shop means the door can stand open again to welcome visitors.

It also means that it's time to showcase cottage pastels. Winter seems to be best for elegant and Frenchified all white schemes seen so much in California.

And summer lends itself best to the chippy and rusty whites of Texas. Junk style.

But the mixed florals and pastels belong to Spring and the Pacific Northwest.

There's a lot of overlap of course. And I would really HATE to have to stick to only one style.

But the new season begs for the color of rose gardens.

Flower painted tins, pots, and trays all mixed together if possible.

Time also for layers of chenille with a cheery quilt at the end of the bed just in case.

If ever there is a time to over use pink, this is it! I really could only do that for one season anyway. Here's wishing you all the pastel your springing heart can hold. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I see so many pretty things! I collected tole trays for years and now I think I'm ready to part with most of them. Have a great day, T

  2. Such pretty pastels! They are so cheerful and sweet!
