Enchanting Windows Party – Kitchen Sink View



The Enchanting Windows Party is hosted by Cielo at The House in the Roses.

All along there has been little to see when looking out my kitchen window. So I in June I had a new planting bed made between two maple trees near the back fence. I had some low maintenance plants put in there: Hosta ‘Albo Marginata,’ Hosta Bressingham Blue, and bright yellow marigolds. Two white chairs with roses across the upper backs, look very inviting.


I can also enjoy seeing bird and squirrel activity in the yard – robins, bluebirds and furry squirrels. It all makes me smile to see how busy they are all the time.

As to the window décor – I took down the bottom half of the curtain and just placed a woven place mat against the screen. A tall blue and white vase with Blue Danube candlesticka and Staffordshire shoe planters on either side is in the center. A rabbit figure crouches on the left and on the right side are two blue glass goblets. (The photos were taken very early in the morning.)





This photo shows the right side of the sink where the everyday blue and white dishes ("Bermuda Blue" by Churchill) are stored.


On the left of the sink is a three-tier plate stand with cream ware dishes.


Here, the cobalt bud vase holds a Rose of Sharon flower from a friend’s garden.





Visit Cielo for a charming illustrated introduction to the windows of the party participants.
