~A Touch of Blue~

I've been loving a touch of blue lately.  Simple things such as blue glass bottles and jars  especially when filled with Queen Anne's Lace.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I came across two benches at a sale I attended last weekend with the perfect blue color faded to aqua in areas from the sun.

All this combined with a rusty French bottle carrier and flower frog.

I must be hooked on blue because I just purchased an amazing primitive cupboard yesterday with this same blue and I LOVE it. Now I need to decide if I incorporate it and these benches into my home or sell them. 

Enjoy your weekend:-)

~By the Bed~

My love of French baskets continues and I knew I just had to bring this large one from Chris at Uber Chic home with me.  I wasn't really sure where I was going to put it at first, but it didn't take long for it to find it's home.

I've had many different things at the end of my bed over the years, but this might be my favorite and it will be perfect for holding extra pillows and blankets especially when the weather turns chilly.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Another great purchase was this pillow made from a Swiss army blanket.  I've wanted one for a while now.

My butterfly bush is loaded with blooms this year and not only do I love to sit on my porch and watch the butterflies swarm to them, but I love a bouquet of them on the nightstand by my bed to enjoy the sweet aroma as the breeze blows through the window at night.

Have a wonderful weekend!

~Window Display at Camas Antiques~

Can you believe it is August already?  Summer always goes by way too quickly.  This month I will be selling my wares from the window space at Camas Antiques.

It is always hard to get good photos in these window spaces, but this will give you an idea of what I have to offer.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

This Antique Mall is located in the charming little town of Camas, Wa in the tree lined streets of downtown which is especially pretty in the Summer months.  If you are ever in the area, stop in and you might find something you just can't live without.

I'm having fun over at fadedcharmliving on Instagram sharing more photos lately.  Stop by and take a peek!

~Keeping it Simple~

I strive for Summer to be relaxing as I enjoy the warm sunshine out in the garden and spend time with family and friends.  

That is why I like to keep things simple in my decor with  just a few hydrangea blooms as the centerpiece for my dining room table. Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I decided to get my chicken feeder out again to enjoy and the the soft pink of these blooms blends nicely with  the neutral furnishing, architectural pieces and ironstone I have in this room.
I frequently get asked the color of my walls in this room, so I thought I would share it with you in this post.  I used Grant Beige from Benjamin Moore in both the dining room and powder room.  

Enjoy your week.  I intend to relish in every moment of this season since I know it goes by so quickly.  Happy Summer!

I've also just recently started an Instagram account  at fadedcharmliving and you can click here to see what I'm up to:-)

~A Vintage Bicycle~

I hope everyone is enjoying their Summer so far.  I know I am since this is my favorite time of the year.  I love when time allows me to putter in my gardens and water all my pots which is very soothing to me.

The Garden House has a new addition.....this wonderful vintage bicycle leaning against it's wall.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I was fortunate to come across two vintage bicycles last Summer and figured I'd keep one and sell one.  I used the red one at Christmas time and you can see it HERE, but decided I was going to sell the white one(even though I secretly wanted to keep it too).  To my surprise it didn't sell, so I took that as a sign and brought it home where it looks like it was meant to be. 

The weathered fishing creel is a perfect basket to hold blooms like this lavender.

I admit it's seen better days and isn't able to be ridden any longer with it's flat tire and rusty seat, but items like this just seem to speak to me and want to be admired in any garden setting.

~Where Bloggers Create 2014~

I'm joining in with Karen from My Desert Cottage today for her annual "Where Bloggers Create" party where I will be sharing my office space with you.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
This is where you will find me blogging, answering emails and spending too much time looking through Pinterest.....please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem!
This wooden cart is perfect for holding rolls of wrapping paper and the box and basket contain bags, ribbon and other essentials for wrapping presents.
I love this big leather chair that is so comfortable for reading a good book or browsing through a favorite magazine. 
This shelf holds many old books and some pieces of my collection of coral.
Still loving the botanicals I added to this window above the little desk in the corner.
Hope you enjoyed the tour and make sure you head over to Karen's blog to check out many more creative spaces.
