More Hydrangea Love

July 19, 2024

Flower Friday the hydrangea love continues. I was given a gift for my birthday many years ago, a vintage piece of white pottery that is a hanging vase. It sits right next to the kitchen sink at WestWard. Two varying blue hydrangea are currently residing in it. It tickles me to no end as it makes cleaning up after a meal seem not like a chore at all when I catch glimpses of them. Happy sunny July weekend all. X, T

Vintage English Hotel Silver

July 18, 2024

Our WK collection of vintage English hotel silver grows & grows. These are pieces with history. Well loved from the past, given some major love and care and a new coat of silver, then ready for a beautiful second act. These are workhorses that are meant to used and enjoyed, as they are all food safe. What I am always taken with is how handsome they are, and how nice they are to leave out on a side table or bar or kitchen shelf. Within reach, they are so much easier to use each day and enjoy.

Sunny Weeknight Supper

July 17, 2024

The geraniums are going wild with all this sunshine. I snipped a few stems for our alfresco dining table to snuggle up next to the hydrangea. Absolutely flowers of the moment on this July Wednesday. The red French Duralex drinking glasses fitting right in with the flowery duo. Can’t quite let go of the red, white & blue gingham tablecloth and napkins quite yet and swap it out for another. We have been enjoying them since the 4th. No major spills quite yet!

Seeing Yellow

July 16, 2024

All things sunny yellow on this July Tuesday. Such a happy hue. In all things—from our WK hat, to just arrived striped stoneware plates handmade in Italy, a new favorite cookbook and Murano glasses to delight.

Roadside farmstands this time of year can be overflowing with some of the very best produce of the season. Plus shopping at them you are supporting a small business and local farmer, which is always a good thing.
