Summer cottage vignette – dried roses in the china hutch.
The Charmer’s decor transitioned from Spring to Summer the last month. I just don’t see to find the time to post about it. Either I’m decorating or working hard out in the gardens.
The problem is WEEDS grow to darn fast! Once a beds weeded I need to back to weed the others again.
While out in the garden I clipped some roses that had dried on the vine from my heirloom rose shrub. Dried roses, like these, can be as pretty as fresh.
You might know that I’ve been volunteering at a thrift store at least once a week. The thrift stores proceeds fund free activities for children between the ages of 12-16. It is unbelievable the program they offer to help children stay our of trouble while their parents are working.
I usually work on Mondays. Then all the good stuff donated over the weekend comes out to the floor as I scope everything from the front counter.
As the racks starting rolling out from the back room I spotted two pairs of vintage baby shoes which I grabbed immediately! Even though the shoes show wear it mades them ooze stories of their childhood actives.
A hand, a very soft pink, was another score from the thrift store. Its the lightest shade of pink and, to me, has a very calming presence about it.
Ever since the remodel from hell last summer my decorating style is leaning to softer colors and I falling in love with pink. I’ve not gravitated to pink before but loving the ambiance it provides.
A vignette that has a air of serenity to it that I am enjoying. When I pass by it provides me a feeling of warm, comfort and home.
As often as I pass by my mind wonders if the child’s life turned out to be happy and fulfilling.
