French Seaside Style


I hope you had a lovely weekend! I couldn't wait to share my potted hydrangeas. They're not grown here as a rule, but can be kept inside or on patios where they stay cool and hydrated. 



A new flea market pitcher joins my ironstone collection on the table keeping my plant company.



And a chippy vintage coal bucket serves as a cachepot.


I'm also featuring the new book French Seaside Style by Sebastien Siraudeau.


I have enjoyed perusing the other three popular books on French style by the same author.


Far from France or even the beach, for that matter, it's a way of bringing both to my doorstep and getting in a crisp white summer mode.















I hope you have a great week ahead!
I'm off to check out what you're up to!
Ciao for now!

  11. I love that pitcher you found, Jacqueline! What great curves! The white hydrangeas are beautiful. I have mostly blue ones in my yard and a couple of bushes last year which couldn't decide what color to be {one bush had blue, pink and purple}. I usually cut them throughout the season and bring them in the house.

  13. Hi Jacqueline and what a beautiful hydrangea you have. It's gorgeous with your other pretty white pieces! I have a pink hydrangea in a pot that I've had for three years. It only gave me two blooms last year but looks like I'll have more this year. I dried the blooms so I would have them.
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
