Sweet and Simple


A short post just to share a summer vignette in my living
room comprised of a couple of my favorite things ~ bees and
sunflowers.
I found these bee prints earlier this summer and fell in love
with them immediately.




I love these prints, although the darker bee looks like those mean
bees that come out in the fall and hover around your food.  I wish
they had made this set with a bumble bee instead.







I found these sunflowers at Michael's earlier this spring, and waited 
patiently for them to go on sale because they were quite pricey, but worth
every penny.




And this beautiful leaf plate I found at the store where I sell my furniture.  
I loved it at first sight and the store owner surprised me by giving
it to me for helping set up displays at the store.  I was so happy to
add this lovely piece to my collection.




And so these favorite things make up my lovely summer vignette in 
the corner of my living room.




I find myself keep coming back to this corner for the pleasure it
gives me.  It is currently the only part of my house that is
sweet and simple ~ the rest of it is in utter chaos, overflowing
with boxes and furniture.  This is my little corner of sanity.

I love your beautiful vingette. The bee prints are wonderful but what I really like is the majolica plate. What a great gift. Majolica lovers would die for that one.

I agree with you on the 2nd bee print. I am allergic so it kind of gives me the 'willies". I love the vignette with the sunflowers....nice to have someplace in the house that gives us a hug!~Patti

I love the prints too! The sunflowers are terrific looking. I'm going to have to see if I can find some. That majolica plate is beauty. It all does look wonderful together.
