As many of you, I have spent the past week ironing out a new routine with back to school. I am now up at the crack of dawn - making a pot of coffee and watching the beautiful country sunrises.
I have put together my take on the casual, French farmhouse-inspired table setting, with fresh color from the cosmos growing in my garden. I need to start cutting my annuals now as cooler days approach.
I used lots of my favorite things: painted sap buckets, ironstone dishes, linen napkins, antique clothes pins, mason jars for glasses, antique tea towels made into a runner, anthropologie latte bowls, and antique silverware.
We grew these pink cosmos flowers from seed. They were very easy to grow. I used the cosmos sensation seed mix. I will be growing these again and again when I want a tall pop of color in the garden.
I recently gathered up most of my flea market white wall frames and hung them up collage style. I still want to add a few more smaller frames to fill it out a little. I have found every one of these frames at the flea market.
I am finally reaping the benefit of having a butterfly bush! With many fluttery visitors including hummingbirds.
