FRENCH VANILLA & ROSES


I was dreaming of a warm spring day today...


Blooming roses, fresh cut grass & little birds chirping about ...


This vintage china has been packed away for awhile now...
it's a beautiful french vanilla cream color with pink roses.


The little vintage tole bouquet with faded blooms was a find at the thrift store recently
and I added a mossy ribbon layer to line the shelves.


I have been feeling ready for a change in my hutch.
I usually have a set of antique green transferware displayed in here.

Here is a before~

and after


A little vintage,
a little cottage,
a little french romantic.

Mixed with vintage silver, cloche's
some creamy whites & garden elements.




Not sure how long this will stay...
I have a couple of other china patterns I want to try out in here
and you know I am always changing things.
For now, I am loving the romantic feel of this pattern.


A couple of mercury glass ornaments are displayed as well,
love them.


So even though it's chilly outside and my garden and roses are pretty bare~
My buffet is filled with sweet, lovely, blooming flowers!


Feathered Nest Friday
will be up Thursday evening~
Hope to see you there!

  7. Hey lovely,

    I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking of spring. I absolutely can't wait to see flowers again in our garden. Now that Christmas is over, I've had enough of the winter weather!

  27. Hi Courtney! That was definitely a "Calgon, take me away" moment! It is so dreary here in the NW and I really did feel like I was getting a little glimpse of spring looking at all of your lovely things in this post. You have such a gift, my friend! :-)

  41. Simply lovely!

    I have my aunt's "Mildred" pattern china, and while the pattern is quite different from your sweet little pink roses, it is very similar too.

    I know, I know - - - that's an oxymoron, but TRUE!

  42. Hi Girlfriend...

    Oooh...sooo many pretties, sweet friend! I loved getting a peek at "the before" hutch! I really do have a thing for green transferware! You have some lovely pieces! But I also love your new look with the fabulous french vanilla china! What a beautiful and sweet pattern. You're right...the little rose pattern is charming! Wow...you really did create a beautiful vignette for your hutch, Courtney! I love how you used the moss on the shelves! Sooo pretty!

    Thank you so much for sharing his sweet repost with us for the Sunday Favorites party, dear friend! As always...such a pleasure!

    Have a super sweet Sunday!
