Show & Tell Friday

Hello everyone,

We are having some lovely weather here again lately so we were able to enjoy a walk on the beach today-it was a great way to end the month of September!

Today,I am joining Show & Tell Friday so I am sharing a little mix of green and white toile.

This is a small bedroom upstairs that over the years went from a toddlers room to a teenagers but is now a guest room.

A pretty little jug- a gift from a friend.

I love this mug.

Well that is it for today but I have been working on a project and I will show you what I have been up to next week.

Thank you Cindy for hosting Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home each week.
I am also joining Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday. This is a new party for me but it looks very inspirational!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Who says you can't use color in small spaces !!!!

Black and White Toile Tablescape

Hello everyone!

I am glad you came to visit as I have a lunch all ready for you .Since it is a warm sunny afternoon I have set a table for you in our little garden cottage. The doors are open so we can enjoy the garden from here.

I hope you like toile!

A little bouquet of phlox and roses looks romantic on the table.

I know many of you have seen this teapot from Winner's before but isn't it pretty? There is no marking on the bottom but I am pretty sure the box said made in England.

The chargers came from the Christmas Tree shop.

I hope I am not boring you with all these photos but you probably know by now I love to take pictures.

I closed the doors as a breeze picked up. These chairs were a thrift find that I painted and covered the seats with toile. I made the tablecloth with toile fabric from Walmart.

Well, you wait here while I go get your lunch-I will just be a minute, it is already for you I promise!

Today I am joining Susan again for the ever popular Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Thank you for visiting


Enjoy your day!


The Garden in Autumn

Hello! I am glad you stopped by so I can take you on a little tour of the garden to see what is going on. Warmer weather has returned - 23 degrees Celsius and humid today.

The garden is really taking on the colors of Autumn.

We have several euonymus alatus or burning bushes in the garden and I love the color they turn in early Autumn.

The virginia creeper over the arbor is starting to turn a wine color as well.

Still some roses blooming- this one is new this year, Julia Child.

This is a bellflower-no sure which one. It is a spreader-but pretty. It blooms earlier but is putting out a few new blooms for us to enjoy.

The elder add some nice yellow color to the garden and the birds love the berries.

The sweet autumn clematis is blooming now.

I love how this daylily always graces us with some fall blooms even though it bloomed heavily a few weeks ago.

The roses give me so much pleasure.

The wine red rose is Dark Lady and I love the form,color and perfume. It is a David Austen rose.

Happy Returns daylily gives some repeat bloom late in the season also.

Our water fountain in the centre of the picket fence garden.

As you can see from our little tour the colors of the garden have changed but still give me a lot of pleasure as I stroll through the garden each day or tend to it.

A Fall collage- the pictures are mine but not the sheep , although I think sheep grazing in our field would be a nice added touch!

Thank you for coming on a stroll through the Autumn garden with me.

Thank you also to all who follow my blog both old and new and to all who have left such kind words.

Have a good day!
