French Mirror Doubles as Tray



I love finding things already the color and patina I want.
This vintage mirror is one of those.
Already chippy and white.




Laying it horizontal it made the perfect tray dining alfresco.




Today the weather was beautiful again.
A few of my favorite things were gathered
up and set on the tray. 




The lighting was awesome and I had
so much fun with my camera.
Light was bouncing everywhere.



A sweet spoon from the 1800's





The white hydrangeas are about
the size of a snowman!
They call them Florist Hydrangeas
but they do well to zone 5. Yay!





I had to add flowers everywhere I could. 





The lavender makes me want to iron my clothes
 with lavender water like the French do. 
It might be easier to dry my clothes on the
lavender bushes...like the French do as well!





Mercury glass. Love.



Happy White Wednesday.

Your hydrangeas are wonderful. I'm going to look for that variety because I'd like to have all white hydrangeas in my gardens. They make such a statement in a shade garden.

The raspberries look yummy!
