Simply Remembering Favorite Things

It's a new week and almost a New Year! I've just perused my posts from last year and selected a few of my favorite images for inspiration. I hope you enjoy them too!

Pink paper stripes and painted wood drawers.

Rose covered china.

Rosey teacups and lace.

A little shabby pink desk.

Dried rose petals.

Dolly duds.

Rows of the garter stitch.

Craft supplies and string.

A little shabby shop corner...

Vintage linen.

Puffy quilts and pillows.

Garden teas in spring.

Chippy metal in summer.

Old fat round pitchers.

White flowers.

White painted frames and botanical prints.

White embossed china and old silver.


Brown transferware.

Laundering linen.

My living room redo.

 White rooms.

Nests and nature.

A loaded china dresser in any season.


Dressing tables.

Little boo pumpkins in fall.

A looking glass.

Old books and letters.

And cozy corners.

I'm looking forward to all the beauties awaiting us in the next twelve months.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

  28. Hi J,
    Happy New Year!!
    What a beautiful look back, I think it must be a big job to pick favorites from your big catalog of beauty!! My favorite is the lace draped drawer of tea cups, lovely! My favorite caption... Dolly Duds, how cute is that? Too Cute!!
    Wishing you all the very best for the new year!

  29. What a beautiful treat for the eyes and the soul. Simply a joy to look at.
    Thank you for sharing your talent and inspirations with us.

  30. Jacqueline, you sure know how to give us eye-candy. How sweetly lovely it all is. LOVE your living room! A Happy New Year to you!!!

  31. Oh very beautiful to see and enjoy all the homely goodness that we use and take so much for granted every day.
    Your gifted hydrangeas are superb. I grow these too in our large country garden and it takes me several months to achieve this pretty faded shade from the pinks and mauves which is the perfect partner to the whites!
    Thanks for appreciating my vintage artwork.
    Have a lovely day,

  32. Just gorgeous! Love your hutch!

  33. What a beautiful year in review Jacqueline. Every photo is beautiful and a reminder of how blessed we are to be able to visit you each week and see your gorgeous home. Thank you.

    I'm featuring this post at Shabbilicious Friday today, so others can once again review your fabulous year at Cabin and Cottage.

  34. You take so many incredible photos, i don't even know how you could choose which ones to show. I still love the pink and white striped bag in the sewing drawer, and that frame with the botanical prints best of all. But the stack of plates is so yummy, and the photo of the mirror reflecting the room is just wonderful! I mean, they are all good, but those are my favorite in this batch of photos...
