Homey Vintage Tea Towels

It's crisp and cool today. The sun is shining and it's a beautiful ~almost~ fall day! Makes me want to start bringing out the warm colors of autumn.

I found a small stack of vintage tea towels that seem to fit the bill! Beautiful yellows, browns, greens and reds. So homey and inviting!

This gorgeous vintage Luther Travis daisy tea towel is perfect almost year around! So very cheerful!

The detail on the Alphabet Sampler towel is fun! Check out the acorn and oak leaves for "O."

All these wonderful, unused tea towels are available at The Pink Rose Cottage. The perfect little extra to bring warmth and homeyness to your cozy cottage kitchen!

A Special Find and The Tablecloth Fairy

I didn't go to that many garage sales this past season, but when I did go, I was pretty lucky! A few weeks ago I picked up MY ALL TIME FAVORITE Fiestaware color ~ Lilac! An entire service for four, in the unopened original box! I also picked up some serving pieces from the same sale!

If any of you are Post86 Fiesta junkies, you know that Lilac is somewhat rare and hard to get. I started collecting Fiestaware after Lilac was retired and only was able to obtain a few odd pieces until now! This find had me over the moon!

Since I am a member of The Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club I'd bet you can guess that next concern would be which tablecloth to use! Luckily my fellow club member and dear, sweet friend Pam came to the rescue and surprised me with this fabulous vintage tablecloth!

The shade of purple is near perfect and with that stripe of pink I can easily add Rose Fiesta into the mix to create a different look!

I only have one set of Lilac flatware but I used Rose and Evergreen and that worked out nicely.

This tablescape was a huge hit with my entire family!

Thank you Pam (my personal Tablecloth Fairy) for making my exciting find even more special!

A Gift From My Garden

As I'm sure you can guess, I LOVE pink roses! Well, to tell the truth, I love all roses. Pink just happen to be a favorite!

This summer I revamped my rose garden and added a few new beauties. The pink roses are "Bewitched" and the white are "Full Sail."

I wish you could smell them. Pure heaven! A beautiful gift from my garden...
