I find a sweet romance in faded roses. They have a softness that goes with anything vintage. Maybe there is a touch of nostalgia that passes through any setting in which they are gathered.
I probably like old things for the same reason. That hint of mystery. The unknown hand that put the beauty into old worked linen. A worn surface. Signs of age.
A drooping flower can serve merely as a signal that fresh ones are due, or help us appreciate the fleeting things of life. Old objects do the same.
My little appliqued table square is perfect for a picnic, and reminds me that I have that pleasure yet to look forward to this season. Draped over a wire basket it lends a casual mood to the table.
And I'm in the mood for something a little rustic.
A rustic table takes you away from the ordinary, to a world apart. It helps you appreciate a little bit more the romance in a faded rose. . . .
My glassware is a vintage bistro set of four.
Wishing you a little vintage Summer Romance at your table!
Ciao! for now!
