Wildflowers



Dainty blooms in the palest of pink fading into white
Such sweet little petals and the softest fragrance...
I just adore these flowers.


I picked a bunch of these up the other day 
and as I was putting together a vignette
I noticed how simply sweet they looked just sitting in the jars...
and got a little sidetracked snapping a few photos trying to capture their beauty 


Sometimes I get so excited about how the camera takes the photos 
That focus against all that blur... love.
I think if you are skilled as a photographer you would call that 'Bokeh'
but it's not skill over here...
 I just occasionally get lucky with the settings and am wowed.
 ;)



After having fun taking a few focal photos...
these pretties are finding their way into a little Autumn vignette
 that I am working on finishing up


I have to admit that am feeling so quiet in my decor this year.
It's whites & natural colors
with pinks & soft non traditional hues mixed in
and a lot of elements gathered from the yard that
have the most interesting textures


I do have a couple orange pumpkins...
 I am having a hard time embracing their boldness inside the house
but I found a spot that they fit just perfectly
and I will be wrapping up that vignette too.

 I am a little behind on decorating for Fall. That bug we had zapped us last week
and zapped decorating the house right along with it.
But hey..
it is September yet ...well at least for today
so I have a few more days to get it all done right?
 ;)
Though, I am heading to Lowes & HomeGoods this week for a couple things for projects
can hardly wait to see what inspires me!


 Hope your weekend is going great!!

  3. They look lovely. I would not say you are behind. I always decorate for fall in late September. I have to be in a fall mood for my decorations to look like fall. I love the muted colors.

  7. These tiny flowers are so pretty, do you know the name of them? Beautiful vignette. I love the blurry background in your photos, I thought you had a separate macro lens! I am still learning my camera after 6 months!

    Happy Fall Weekend!

  9. A girl after my own heart. I love all the white and natural colors too. Im having a hard time finding white pumpkins. Spray painting orange ones will not do for me. Would love to know the paint colors in your home.

  10. Those are so sweet. Not only are the blooms pretty and dainty, so are the stems and leaves. What are they?

  11. Those flowers looks so pretty by those little white pumpkins. Bold is a good way to describe why I don't like orange pumpkins in the house :)

  14. Love the little flowers, especially against the white pumpkins. I was trying to place which blooms they are....they're sort of like "Angel Faces" but not quite.

  17. Courtney I love your post! I can't embrace the orange and the bold Autumn colors :(

  18. I love the idea of wildflowers in combination with white pumpkin. I have seen a lot of fall ideas color uses burnt orange, chocolate brown, and golden yellow but these one is unique.

  19. So so pretty. I just the love the combination of the white pumpkins and delicate wildflowers. So soft and pretty.

  20. Those are Wax Flowers and you are lucky to find them growing wild!!! Must be pretty warm where you live. They also come in pink and an almost red color. Florists love them in mixed bouquets!!! Love your neutrals for Fall....

  21. Such sweet little flowers and I love the pictures! I would like to learn how to do that focus/out of focus thing too. It makes photos extra special, like adding depth and texture! Thank you for sharing! Hugs, Leena

  23. Good lord, those are wildflowers? They are so pretty, I would love to grow those in the garden.

  24. Absolute loveliness! I am all about white. This year I found a huge picture at goodwill - and it is beautiful fall colors - no white to be seen. I redid the frame with chalk paint and wax and while I love it, it is hard to leave it in my decor - because it isn't white! Not sure it will make it all the way through thanksgiving - but I will try! Then it goes in my sale pile - someone who LOVES color as much as I love white needs to give it a loving home! I will be blogging about it later this week and would love to have you stop by and take a peek!

  27. I especially like your blackboard in the lovely gilt frame. A clever and intriguing contrast. I did the same thing with a variety of wine corks I collected to make a bulletin board!

  29. Sweet Violets is correct..those are wax flowers and we used them in floral design classes. Our local florist shops carry them and so does one of our local supermarket. Wish they grew in my area I would have fields of them. So pretty!
