So in my last post I promised to share my latest purchases from the Suffolk outing to Rosehip in the Country. One of the first things to catch my eye was this lovely hydrangea wreath, I had been looking for one for a while to hang in the window or prop up on the dining room mantle piece. Since the Christmas garland is on the mantle piece just now the wreath will stay in the kitchen until after the festivities. I always find that the kitchen gets a bit left out from all the decorating going on in the rest of the house!
Then I bought a pair of these rustic looking lanterns (the other one is on the wall shelves on the other side of the room) they cast pretty shadows with tea lights or votive candles inside. Plus I love the contrast between the smooth silvered glass and baubles with the rough rusty zinc.
My little magazine basket was getting pretty full (in fact it couldn't stand up by itself anymore) so I was pleased to spy this gorgeous French basket hanging from the rafters in the Rosehip barn. I really like the soft curved edge at the top of the basket and it holds so many magazines!
And finally this pretty pink transfer-ware cup with a pastoral scene seemed destined for the dining room dresser. I did make a few more purchases but I'm saving those for my Christmas post!
