the great bursts of leaves growing
on the trees, just as things grow in
fast movies, I had that familiar
conviction that life was beginning
over again with the summer."
~F. Scott Fitzgerald,
The Great Gatsby
The roses are finally out in the garden! All of this heat we have been having has coaxed them out. I'm not used to the warm weather - there have definitely been more trips to the store for watermelons, popsicles, and those fabulous little Haagen Daaz mini ice cream cartons lately! The joys of summer!
I wanted to share some photos I took of our collection of dresser pots. I am IN LOVE with antique porcelain dresser pots and powder jars. They are getting very hard to find! Between my Mum and I we barely have half a dozen and we are always searching for more. They remind me of chic ladies sat at their dressing tables draped in satin and lace and a powder puff in their hand. I wonder if they really were filled with powders and creams? I love to keep jewelry and trinkets in them or little flowers. Here are just a few photos of them! I hope everyone is having a happy July!
