Favourite Furniture, Flowers and Pot!

Who can resist pink roses?

I can't.

So these ones sit

in a gorgeous, whitewashed, pressed metal pot

For me to enjoy

Every day

And they sit on top

of my most favourite chest of drawers

I love the carving

Garlands at the bottom

Chateau in Congac, France

Nearly 6 years ago

on my first trip to France

We stayed at this chateau!

It was undoubtably the highlight of the trip.

It was near Congac

where I bought some gorgeous stuff

to bring home and treasure

It was actually here to be precise

I loved the whole decor

She used french reds to perfection

Love fabric used in cabinets

Bathroom was so pretty

Kath Kidston I think?

The owners were English

and gave us such fabulous tips

Loved this laundry!

The countryside was like a dream

With cows for neighbours!

A perfect place to stay!

Divine Blues For Easter.

With so much beautiful blue out there for Easter

I just had to collect my favourites

As my Easter keepsake for 2011

Was very excited to find the blog

"To Be Charmed"

Showing these gorgeous ideas

Im in love with the speckled eggs!
Unfortunately I ate mine
before I got my own pics.

I found this one via "Ruby and Belle"

Oh how I love feathers

And Tiffany blue

And of course

French Blue

delighted me as usual

with these stunning eggs

And STylizmo

with this piece of elegance

Was totally smitten with these plushies

suggested to pair with eggs in a basket

Dreaming of a New House

Wow! On a leisurely drive down at South Beach

I spied this gorgeous "Beach House"

I think I could live there quite happily

Or should I go for more of a french facade?

A kitchen like this would do me fine

(Maybe a little bigger)

Oh how I would looooove this staircase!

Back to the gorgeous kitchen and living area

And definitely a romantic bathroom.

With these divine french doors.

Maybe one day soon?

Polka Dot Teapots and Roses

With the last of my summer bloom roses

from my standards

I thought the teapot was the perfect

way to display A perfect combination of pink and blue

Gotta love "David Austins"

I couldnt resist capturing the blue light

behind my favourite blue cups

These aren't mine but I want to do this.

Perfect way to use vintage china.
