spring topiaries


Didn’t really want to title this dining room 3, but here are a few more photos of the dining room.

I decided that I needed to add another layer of texture, so I put up the linen curtains. I love the big windows that we put in this room, it brings in a lot of natural  light…. especially nice in the winter!!

All of my photos area taken with a measly point and shoot, so bear with me!

Here you can see the little dresser that I put along this wall.

This is the view in the other direction, towards the living room and front door.

I have had this pie safe for a long time, I bought to hold dishes in a previous home and now it holds books and magazines.

Should probably move this to a bigger wall somewhere else in the house……

Perhaps another time.

Can’t believe my hydrangeas still look so good!

I actually managed to cut a bunch of them before they all froze last fall!!

The doorway leads to the kitchen.

I added some european grain sacks on the table, although you can tell they have been folded for a long time. I tried ironing them to no avail. Would have had to re-launder them, but just too much work for a picture!!

Hopefully, after they sit on the table for a few days or weeks, they’ll flatten out a bit.

I am not a big mover, usually if I like something somewhere it stays… and stays….and stays……..

Some topiary love…

and glass cloche love…

Picked up this post WWII German candy container at a local shop. I don’t think they knew what it was….

It certainly fit into my spring theme.

But these German Flour canisters are a great find!! Late 1800’s, because they are missing the “h”!! Can’t believe I found them in my little town!

Going to keep the white one, and sell the blue and white one.

As suggested, I tried to put more ironstone into my “Dakota Territory” stepback cupboard, however, most of it is too big and doesn’t fit!!

So there it is, I won’t be bothering you with my dining room again for awhile, so breathe easy!

I threw in this last one to keep things real. Here are a bunch of things that I had out to either take pictures of, like the frames, or just stacked until I got everything put away.

Hope you enjoyed my little tour.

Would love to have each and every one of you over for coffee some time!!

Until then, enjoy your day, and your own little piece of spring wherever you are!

  1. Hey Cindy, I seem to be following Leslie around today! She’s gonna think I’m stalking her!! I love the vibrant green of the topiaries, the perfect touch as are the grain sacks. You made me laugh when you said you tried ironing them but couldn’t be bothered relaundering – that is soooooo me! anyway they’re rustic, so they look perfect the way they are! I have to say I adore your hydrangeas in that wooden box – just beautiful. And I would love to call round for coffee! maybe one day . . .
