I recently found a darling bench at an antique mall and hope you can sit and enjoy the view of my garden!
We no longer have a real dog which is one reason we now have a "real garden"....so I have a large china dog for ambiance here.
Last weekend I also found a lovely hand painted Iris Plate and a crochet doily at a nearby antique mall. I have always been drawn to ecru colored linens whereas most of my friends love the white pieces.
The lavender textile bedcover is very old as well as the Ecru Battenberg Lace Curtain piece.
I especially enjoy the older issues of Victoria Magazine and have some July issues on the bench. They celebrate summer as it should be - a slower pace with time to smell the flowers and feast on lovely visual photos.
