vintage summer blues...

What a wonderful weekend we had ~ hope yours was too!! I am joining a new party today. Melinda who has the most beautiful blog and boutique ~ Alabaster Rose Designs ~ is hosting Vintage Summer Mondays. She is inviting us to show our summer flea market finds! Here is what I am sharing today... I found this old chair many years ago at a flea market. It has seen a few colors over the years but is now a pale shade of blue. The old crock was my Mom's... I love these old dried Hydrangeas. They are actually from my garden! Look at the beautiful blues...
I am looking forward to treasure hunting this summer along the main streets and back roads of Cape Cod. Take some time today and visit Alabaster Rose Designs to see what everyone else is sharing. Also take a few moments to catch up on Melinda's blog and browse through her boutique. You will be a new follower for sure!

As I mentioned we had a wonderful and busy weekend. Jake's Confirmation went off without a hitch. The violin music played while all the candidates went before the Bishop was so lovely. Remember Jake's First Communion photo... Here he is on Saturday... Jim helping Jake with his tie... We had a little get together at our house after. Good weather, good food and great company! Jim's brother Jay and his wife Christine ended up staying a while so we lit the chiminea and enjoyed the fire until almost midnight! We always have fun when we get together. Their daughter Gianna was making her First Communion the next day...I don't know how they did it!! Here she is, looking like a princess... From a beautiful baby... To a beautiful young lady... Thank you Gianna for letting me share your picture! And thank you all for stopping by today ~ I hope you all have a great week!!

Love that chair and the color is so pretty. Hydrangeas are my favorite. Your blooms are gorgeous! I used to collect ladderback chairs oh so long ago. Left them all behind when I came to Kuwait. Boo! Sounds like you had a nice weekend with family. Blessings for the week ahead. :)Tammy

Sounds like a lovely weekend! I love your dried hydrangeas, I never can seem to dry mine out correctly, they turn brown. But yours almost look just picked. I love the color you painted your chair and your mom crock is really sweet. Mary :O)

Sandi said...

ooooooo I love your hydrangeas. I have never had blue ones before. Mine are a greenish pink and then eventually when they are really dry they turn cream/brown. Yours are beautiful!

What a beautiful family you have Sandi. I know you are very proud of them as you should be.
Happy Tuesday!
Hugs~
