Come Gaze at our Mid-Summer Country Style Window


It really was a whole lot different when it was my, early summer, herb garden
The plants were struggling to be their best and it was time for a change of view.

This tablescape and centerpiece were my inspirations to make some changes and bring some farmhouse style to the window.

I hung my, straw, market basket in the window and filled it with red, faux geraniums, daisies, and hydrangeas.


I always love to see pics, like this one, that show our yard in the background.


A, rustic, naked frame surrounds my tiny rooster print in an intentional lopsided manner.


I used my dad's, red windsor, chair (from when he was a toddler) to hold this country vignette.



Vintage firkins and an"egg crate," that I made from an old wooden box, are displayed to the right adding mpre farm house styling.

A white ceramic rooster proudly sits on top.

A collection of, Strawberry Fields, saucers and a potted violet are tucked inside the rustic white washed crate.


50 cents each is all I paid for eight of these. red transferware, vintage pieces!

A Pfaltzgraff bowl turned upside down is a base for my potted plant and my, white ironstone, creamer is handy for watering the last of my window plants.

The bowl is part of our dinnerware collection.

I liked the way it mimicked the colors in the basket hanging from above.


Our window has given us so much joy over the past 2 years. If  you
enter "bay window" in my search bar it will show you many posts of
each Holiday and season for you to see!

I hope that you are enjoying a wonderful summer with you family and friends...we are and I just wish that it would never end!

Great job on your "egg crate". The whole vignette is just darling. And lopsided is good. ~Ann
