~ My Dining Room Today ~


It is absolutely bucketing down with rain outside today so I am enjoying arranging some roses in some vintage jugs. Placed side by side on my dining room table I added my favourite striped tablecloth. It feels a little sunnier inside somehow.

  1. OK, you have to open a flower shop, or at least sell some of these beauties at the local farmers market.

    Thanks for visiting my bog, and Yes, it would be nice to have a few chickens clucking away in the back yard. :)
    I have a friend that has chickens and bee hives. It is so fun to go over and visit, and those eggs and honey are wonderful!!!

  22. I am very envious of all your roses. It is a long time since I have lived in a house with a 'picking' garden. I have started to sing the "rain, rain, go away" song with my kids this afternoon. Bring on the sunshine!

  31. They are beautiful jugs with their high tea plumpness, my favourite sort, straight out of a child's story. How I prefer them to modern 'quirky' vases.
