...thinking happy thoughts!

...hello dear ones!
I hope you had a happy 3 day weekend!

I just love those kind of weekends,
it's like getting an extra free day!!
An extra day to get moooooore things done!
In between grilling, 
I spent most of the weekend

We have been in our new home for about 3 months,
and feel as if our home is becoming elegantly comfortable
I really enjoy arranging spaces ~
places where I spend alot of time
into little vignettes

can you guess where this is??
see those rolled up thingeys?

they are dish towels!
I'm always on the lookout for lovely but functional dish towels!!

if you guessed, my kitchen, you are correct!
This vignette is next to the sink...

sometimes I light my Crabtree and Evelyn candle
for when I'm washing the dishes ~
I'm cultivating "everyday romance" in our lives
as good is now!!

this is a most sumptious candle
that has pearls and sparkly pretties IN the wax and smells oh-so-lovely!

I also have a thing for candles...

and I adore this portrait...
it's just so "Howard's End" like to me!
I wonder who that young child was
and what he was thinking!

I'm not sure why,
it just speaks to me...

and here is where the lovely Lily,
my resident owl princess has chosen to put her nest...

She sits with her little ones above my pantry
and hoots happy thoughts to me!


a few of my pretties...
I just can't get enough of glass cloches!!

I made the "Think Happy Thoughts" sign
 from a piece of reclaimed board from my moms cottage farmhouse
so I always have a piece of home with me!

this is a linen lined wire basket
full of handmade jams of all my favorite fruits!!

...can you tell that
I'm having so much fun rearranging all my pretties?!
Somehow they feel new,
but at the same time like an old friend that just knows me!

What are some of the favorite things that surround you in Your kitchen??

stop by later this week,
I will show you an awesome thrift store find
that I would really like your opinion on!!

I'll give you a hint:

here's to vignettes that bring us happy thoughts!



  1. Hi Rosemary!
    I just love the way you rolled up your dish towels and stacked them on the pretty tier plate. So pretty. Your entire kitchen is very romantic looking and lovely.


  2. I saw the picture pop up on my blog roll and had to come over to see...wow! Gorgeous!! I love, Love, LOVE the portrait! You did a beautiful job with your vignette. Magazine shoot ready!


  3. Rosemary, the vignette is lovely. You are certainly making it a gorgeous home. I knew it would be wonderful!

  4. Your home is gorgeous! That sneak peak of the chair or settee is makes me want to see it all!

  5. Dear Rosemary,
    I don`t think I ever saw such a beautifull vignette,in a kitchen before, this is just so pretty and wonderfull,
    I could do the disches all day, in your lovely kitchen,sweet.

  6. Clever idea with the dish towels and so elegant! Love the princess owl family.


  7. Beautiful Rosemary...
    I too have a big thing for tea towels, linen and French feed or flour sacks of course.

    Beautiful inspiration...keep on inspiring us.

  8. Love you counter vignette! I am wondering - did you make the pretty tiered tray that you have your towels on or was this pretty thing purchased? I love it!
