Simple, clean and elegant cottage style.

Good morning Becky! I am more and more in love with cream and white. My girls are aghast that I want to paint alla the walls neutral colors and simplify. I just need a little peace right now with my hectic schedule. So I need one more project like painting my rooms white right? Lol! Your home is always an inspiration to me. Hope you are having a good spring.

Ahh! Something so serene & peaceful about those photos. If I had lovely pearls like that draped over a vintage mirror, one of my cats would inevitably decide to play with the beads and knock everything flying! Or my Jack Russell would nuzzle her nose in there and tip things over. Either way, I think I won't try to replicate that look - but absolutely enjoy admiring it from afar! Hope you have a lovely weekend. :)

Vee said...

Simply lovely and elegant, too, despite the cottage flair. I'd never be able to achieve the look, I don't believe.

Becky! You take beautiful pictures. I've been packing and came across a box of silver pieces. I tried to give them to my son and daughter but they didn't want them. Now, after looking at some of your last posts-I just might have to keep them. When I looked at it yesterday, all I saw is that it needed to be polished. Maybe not...
Have a wonderful weekend.

Very soft layers indeed Becky. There is something uniquely delicate about a strand of pearls.

I know I have told you before, but I just love your blog. I loved the picture you had the other day of the Scotties looking out the window together. I knew I had some pictures very similar to that of my two Schnauzers. I found them and put one with my weekly quote. You will find it funny how much the four dogs are alike!

There is nothing like ironstone. Very elegant, but your home is always so lovely xoxox Clarice

If there is one thing that you have taught me, it's to layer. It makes such a difference. I used to line things up like little soldiers but no more.

You are layered with kindness, gentleness, and sweetness, my friend.
