romantic and sweet ideas for february

January’s been filled with lots of work in the garden for me, but I’m already working on some feminine and pretty ideas for Valentine’ day.  

What are your favorite flowers to decorate with during February?

I tend to gravitate towards tulips, which are so fun for Spring, but roses and peonies are definitely a favorite! Especially in those gorgeous pink hues.

I’ve got a little something more subtle in the works with accessories by Serena & Lily and one of my favorite Galentine’s Day tablescapes will be debuting on the Cottages and Bungalows website very soon too!

I can’t wait for you all to see it! It’s quite festive and such a fun way to celebrate with the “gals”!

sunday flea market sale!

Flea market Sunday is always a fun day, so I thought I’d bring a little flea market fun to you, even if you’re just looking!

If you’re a regular reader on the blog, you know I have a deep affection for vintage plates. They’re soooo pretty on a table, but I also love them on a featured wall!

I have some of my favorite blue and white plates displayed on the wall in my family room and it adds color and charm to an otherwise boring little wall.

Over the years I’ve acquired so many pretty plates. It’s so fun collecting them! You may remember this display I created for Romantic Homes. ↑

Well, I’ve been going through my collection and creating unique little groupings of adorable shabby chic plates that are ready to hang on the wall. I have over ten collections that are available right now.

Cottage collection #1

They vary in size and pattern, but I think they coordinate nicely with each other to create one-of-a-kind wall displays.

Cottage collection #2 

All you need are inexpensive plate hangers that are available at most hardware stores. They’re so easy to install too! You get instant gratification in only a few minutes time!

The plates included in these collections are ones that have been showcased on the blog and a few fun magazines too!

Country cottage collection #4

There are several different collections in slightly different colors, and many of the plates included are French Limoges, fine Bavarian china and pretty English patterns.

This collection is one of my favorites, because if features so many different styles of plates, but they’re all unified by the lovely green tones.

Last Easter I set this cheery little table in blue and white with contrasting yellow flowers like daffodils and tulips.

Some of my favorite little blue and white cream and sugar containers were used to hold the pretty spring flowers. I had a group of them running down the center of the table.

These are now available at flea market prices. I’m starting to also make collections of other blue and white tableware available on the blog shop.

This little pitcher with the swimming fish is adorable. It's perfect for holding beautiful white hydrangeas pretty pink peonies or a collection of cottage flowers.

A darling little heart-shaped box is the perfect gift for a loved one and would be even more special filled with little treats or even some heirloom jewelry!

I'll be listing more little treasures from my collection over the next few weeks on the blog shop, so check back soon!

Happy Sunday!
