Hydrangeas~ Simple Autumn vignette

Denim and florals
paired with an old weathered orchard ladder
with freshly clipped hydrangeas

Yes, please.

I might be obsessed with denim shirts and coats
oh and that perfect hat

Especially when they are put together
with old books and a rustic orchard ladder
and a few freshly clipped green hydrangeas

It was a super simple way to add a little rugged 
a little country 
and a whole lot of charming
in the cottage for Autumn

You know,
I wasn't really feeling 'Autumn-ish' when I put this vignette
together and I had no idea what I was going to be doing.
A recipe? 
Not ready for pumpkin spice anything just yet.
A vignette with pumpkins? 
Not a pumpkin to be found in stores here yet either.
So as I often do when I am looking for inspiration
 I looked to nature.

 I thought of acorns and oak leaves and the apple in the orchard that are trees heavy with fruit 
then I saw those hydrangeas.

They were drying beautifully on the plants and some had already dried all the way
but I decided to clip a couple of them for decorating that old orchard ladder in the cottage.

A super simple early Autumn vignette
and those hydrangeas just might have given me a few more ideas for Fall decor this year.

I am thrilled to be joining a great group of bloggers for an
