French Monograms & October Roses

This beautiful October morning brought a couple of surprises along with it. Two more gorgeous roses from the garden have made their way into our lives!

It seems that fall is finally on her way with cooler temps and the changing light.

We have been running around like crazy, and not really paying attention to the yard, but nature has a beautiful way of getting right up into the face of your busy days.

Along with a few other favorites, this great little rustic table gets its day in the sun for an autumn morning vignette at the window.

A different rose makes a lid handle on this vintage Rose Point sugar bowl (by Pope Gosser) sweetening things up a little.

And I brought over my new French momogram towels to highlight the beautiful stitching on the wonderful damask cloth. 

Any monograms will suit, but these just happen to be those of Mr. Cottage! So fun when that happens.

Always a few of my collections hanging out over here too. I won the adorable French rush seat bench at an auction a few years ago. The cotton sheet on top of it came from a fleamarket this summer.

I love the hand worked edge.

A stack of ironstone bowls on a farmhouse bench makes a nest for an old washstand pitcher.

A French mustard jar lends to my fantasy of living in an old French farmhouse. . . .

Wishing you a dreamy fall weekend too!
Lots of catching up for me to do!

So nice that you stopped by!

Your busy cooler days are so filled with your beauty.
Love your vignettes, and your linens always add a sigh of beauty to my heart that wishes my closet was as full as yours :)

See you soon my friend.

The color of those roses are so very beautiful! I see that favorite plate pattern that I love so much, along with the gorgeous lidded piece. Beautiful.
Enjoy your autumn days, Jacqueline!

So many beautiful things in the post Jacqueline! I always love coming to your house and getting to see some of the things you love to live with. You have such a wonderful eye for beauty. Most of which I would LOVE to break in and steal (ok, maybe just borrow)

Love the trim on the sheet, just beautiful. I have a water pitcher very much like this one. All your beautiful white just sings to my heart.

I quite agree with the other comments here Jacqueline,
It is such a breath of fresh air to visit.
Your posts are beautiful and full of peace and soft vintage loveliness.
A great place to visit in the mornings, during the busy times of the day when I need a break,
or in the evening to help wind down the day~
Blessings to you,

So love your white theme. The whole vignet is restful and calming. Such an elegant understated charm. Love the china and linen. Love it all. Pretty roses speak a thousand words. 😊

Alas, our roses are long gone, so it is especially lovely to share yours! They're beautiful, and so are the linens. Almost like a dream!

French monograms and roses... it doesn't get much better than that Jacqueline. Those roses are quite exquisite, so I just had to share them at tomorrow's Shabbilicious Friday party.
