Posted May 07, 2012 10:23 AM Wow Sharon, those are beautiful and I love your idea of white hydrangea. If you're looking to grow a very easy, no fuss white hydrangea try Sister Theresa.
Thanks Skyler! We are actually shopping for some new Hydrangea to add to our side yard. We already have several blue ones but only one white. Last year we planted an Annabelle but I like the smaller blooms of the Sister Theresa for cutting. I checked our local nursery and they are getting them in soon...can't wait!
Thanks MR and Gracie. I think there's nothing prettier than white flowers in a B&W container.
I love Veranda magazine, so I can only imagine how lovely the book is.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Sharon W,
Graciepj I have the same Veranda book and it's one of my favorites. I haven't seen the Cottage Style book yet. Sharon W the container looks like the shape of a window box. I could see it filled with summer flowers, fall leaves, green winter branches and so many other beautiful things.
I've been "off" shopping for a while, it seems like this house is looking very cluttered to me. However, I couldn't resist an antique quilt for 65 dollars!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Annon,
these are little croched doilies I put on the pillows. Found in a box labled old linens, and hadn't been opened in over 15 years. I think they were made by my mother and were under little vanity lamps in my sisters and my bedroom-and they went with our yellow organdie bedspreasds and curtains.

Graciepj, Loving the Turquoise on the cover of those books! That cottage style one with those interesting frames made from weathered wood! What great texture that could be coastal style as well!
Annon, What a pretty quilt! And the detail on the flower is wonderful! And Graciepj's suggestion to use as tablecloth is nice for that quilt. I can see it over a sofa table or buffet too...
It is hard to keep clutter at bay when we are such good 'gatherers'!
homebody 4, Nice use of those doilies. I have a 'box' labled 'old linens' too! I love to look through it, and soon I will be using some in my guest rooms! I like how you used those yellow and white doilies!
Oh Gracie I reallllly like your finds. I could curl up with a cup of tea and spend hours pouring over them. I have the New Cottage Style book from many years ago and still love looking at it. Let us know if this one is a good one too.
Yep Sharon, our nurseries have the hydrangea in now, so I'm sure everyone will get them soon.
Lots of good ideas Susan!
Annon, glad to see you back shopping! Your quilt is lovely. Very vibrant and cheerful. Enjoy!
Homebody, what a fun find! That must have been like opening a Christmas present. The doilies are very pretty and it's nice that they have special meaning.
i buy cottage style all the time i am thinking about ordering it you get a break that way i also order romantic prarie home it is a lil pricy and has alot of ads too but well worth it!!! i order country living too because sometimes they do 2 yrs for the price of 1 hold out on rennewing they send you a few offers i wait til it is 2 for 1 and the send a gift free!!! its a bargain i really miss country home magazine the most! wish it was back out!!!!!

A beautiful oak shelf. We got up and managed to be 1st in line at the estate sale on the last (50%) day so that DH could get this. It will likely go in the foyer (if I can finish painting in there )This message has been edited. Last edited by: junk collector,
Hey, Junk Collector, I like iron doorstops as they are the only thing that holds my doors open against the vacuum effect that occurs when all of the windows are open. That horse is very nice. I hope you'll show us the shelf and crock again once you get them integrated into your decor.
