Pictures That Did Not Make The Cut For My Home Tour

I must say I had a very fun week participating in the Summer tour of homes. I met a lot of, new to me bloggers, and also new readers.

When I was compiling my pictures for the post there were several I did not include. I did not want to put you all on overload.

I thought I would share them today. These are mostly little vignettes you would find around my home during the summer season.

summer color
I always try to have some fresh flowers and produce in my home. There is nothing like farm stand fresh tomatoes.

I use a lot of blue and white in my home in the summer time. It adds a cool, crisp look to any room.

I am a big fan of using trays on a daily basis. I  always try to have a tray of goodies out on the counters when I have over night guest. 

When it is just us, you will always have dried cranberries and walnuts and almonds to snack on.

Speaking of guest I like to have a tray right by the coffee pot for all the amenities they might need for their morning coffee.

I love the offerings at the grocery stores now, fresh flowers, plants and produce. Nothing prettier!!

This is a fairy garden that sat right outside my patio door for the longest time. It has since  become over grown, and is now a very large plant. Time to make another one.

This is one of the two letter, “P’s” in my backyard.

They are both vintage neon signs. The other P is black with white trim, soon to be hung in the backyard. 

A special gift form  a dear friend visiting here this past May. Barb, from The Everyday Home blog. Both came from the Alameda Antique Flea Market here in California.

vignette berries
Speaking of Barb, here is one of three baskets I purchased from her shop Farmhouse D├ęcor. You can go here to find them. I use these all the time!!
