Simple Pretty

I like to mix things up in my home decor.

I love chippy, rusty things, but I love
pretty and elegant, too.
I like farmhouse, a touch of cottage,
shabby, romantic prairie style,
but love some splashes of color
and some just good old vintage wares!

Here are some simple pretties that make
my heart go pitter patter!!

via Country Living

I might have done this cabinet a little differently
but still love the look.  I see it filled with all white,
and with different things on the top...not quite so rustic.
a little more elegant with a touch of frou frou!

This little jug is adorable with hydrangeas and gerbera daisies in it!
We had a red one like it when I was little!!  {smile}

And I love me some aqua mason jars! 
Lots of people on Etsy make these
soap dispensers now!  Just gives that sweet
country air,  farm fresh feel doesn't it?

Mmm...vintage chair and linens...divine!
The chair might need to be made a little chippy!

I love this idea of a runner made of vintage doilies!
I have to make one!!

And of course...ironstone...need I say more?
Wonderful timeworn, shabby...I will never
tire of this amazing classic!  I have begun
my own collection!  Me and hubby love it!

Hope you are having a great week!
Love ya bunches!

Go sprinkle some joy around ok?

Great images! I love the idea of using vintage doilies for a table runner. I have a lot of my grandmother's doilies that she made and I may try to make a runner out of them. I like the first image pretty much like it is but that is probably because I love blues and whites. Speaking of blues and whites, I love your new header. I really need to update my blog, but just have not had the time.

Have a great day!

Pretty all around!

I've been wanting to try one of those soap dispensers, but I can't bring myself to drill a hole in my wonderful zinc jar lids!!

Morning Becky,
Love all the pretty pictures!! So fun!!
I adore that doily table runner, how cute is that!! Such a creative idea.... you definitely should make one or more of those.
That ball jar soap dispenser is cute cute cute, as well. Yea, I am with you about the cabinet, it needs at least a lil elegance and some fru fru!
I unwrapped my candle and put it back in the largest candleholder and put it on my serving cart where I walk by all the time, and the aroma is delightful, and I put the small ones on the table with my over 2 wk. old carnation, can't believe those babies are still doing so well.
Wished I had thought and used them when Scott and Megan came for dinner the other night, cause they looked great with the clear vase and carnations but at least it is where they are residing as of now!!
and discovered the lavendar in my envelope.....
and thought I need to do something with this, and guess what?? I had made a spritzer of lavendar to spray my linens so I put it in there, it was great!!
Thanks so much for the visit, sweet card and for the lovely candleholders, you sure know what I like!! lol and the lovely presentation you make with your gifts is always so special!

Am trying to send you some visitors today in my Thankful Thursday post, so hope you get a bunch.
Hope you will have a wonderful day hon.
Love ya, Nellie

Debbie said...

Hi Becky! your header is wonderful!!
While in Florida I was going to look you up...but guess where I left the info???!!!! on my diningroom table...duh! LOVED your state!
Didn't bring my computer, so I couldn't communicate with you.
The photos you shared are awesome! That primitive cupboard filled with dishes is sooo cool!
Enjoy your day, sweetie.
