Summer White and Silver

Today's post is the collection of things I have gotten either at garage sales or thrift stores this summer. I just arranged it all in the hutch. It is a collection of white ironstone, silver and a little green.








A little Boston Ivy  and Tansey and a little silver baby cup with animals marching around it.



This was my favorite find this summer, the champagne bucket. I have Tansey in it. Tansey makes a nice bouquet on its own, but is really super as filler with blooms.  There is just nothing blooming in the yard in this third week of 100+ temperatures.




This Bishop's weed is on the north side of the house and it still is going strong.




Little birds bathing in a silver tray.




This pitcher and platter have a nice hunt scene on it, and sits on top the hutch.

This is absolutely incredible. I love every piece. I have never heard of Tansey...is it a bush or some sort of ground cover? I think the texture is wonderful. Saw your link at Marty's and am so glad I stopped by.

A great collection and displayed wonderfully. I do like the hunt scene pieces.
A silver champagne bucket is just such a versatile thing. Decadent even.

Very sophisticated look of dark wood background with white/silver/greenery is also summery, refreshing looking. I especially like the touch of whimsy of the birds bathing.

Beautifully arranged, Pat, and I love the hutch itself. The greenery with the white and silver accessories is classic! I live in the Midwest, too (Kansas City, MO area), and I know what you mean about the blistering heat sucking the life out of all the plants in the yard! :-( I just gave up! Have a good weekend, and try to stay cool!!!
