The day is fairly grey here and this morning I badly needed a shot of colour. A quick tour of the garden revealed that very few blooms have survived our early frosts, so I knew that I'd have to rely on what I had to hand.
I quickly assembled some of my favourite objects in the house, painted trays, old and frayed books, a small oil painting and of course some jugs.
I don't know why jugs are so easy and such fun to collect, but people world over seem to assemble them on shelves, in groups, or on their table. A jug can be mismatched, can be unique, it can even be chipped, it still holds its charm.
I tried to use some turquoise pieces to match the colours of the old books.
The simplest flowers: rusty hydrangeas and the very last dahlias and that is it. My entrance hall looks a little more welcoming for the weekend.
Even Ghetto was willing to pose in the vignette, so it can't all be bad!
and on another note ....
