I'm not sure why I am so attracted to these colours, I always have been, it may be my 'new look' silver grey hair that has arrived in 2009, it may just be the softness of the colours, I think I am also inspired by my Scandinavian blogger friends beautiful white homes that I visit often via their blogs.
I have always loved silver and white, when I was a teenager I loved wearing white in summer with lots of silver jewellery and a silver and white table setting is so serene. Plus, now the weather is warmer it's time for outdoor dinners and entertaining and white is just plain simple & very stylish. I have also had this feeling all week that I want to white wash everything in and outside the house, the walls, the kitchen, the fence and everywhere, a fresh new look for summer.
The Two Bowerbirds from Bowral - There is someone else in town just like me....
I would like to introduce you to my dear friend Vicki and her beautiful garden, I styled this table setting and a few others in Vicki's delightful home a few weeks ago just when her garden walls were massed with flowering Jasmin. I will be posting some more in the next couple of weeks for this Christmas season. Vicki's funny, she is always asking me why I buy so many accoutrement's and table setting objects and sometimes I wonder why myself, but do you know that when I first went to Vicki's home I was shocked as she has many more items than me. Not possible, I thought, yes, it's true, I have found another Bowerbird in Bowral and you will love all her wonderful collections. I do!
.........and by the way, whilst I was quietly setting this table setting in her garden, guess what, there was also a real Bowerbird in her garden watching my every move, as well as all the chooks, dog, cockatiel parrot and other animals that live there. It is a very special garden..

I wish everyone a wonderful festive season, please take care whilst you rush around shopping and getting ready. Enjoy your time with your family and friends. I am visiting all my favourite friends at Susan's party today, we have some major chatting to do with our Christmas decorations for our table settings. Come along too, to Between Naps on the Porch. I plan to set up my Christmas tree and decorate the house over the next couple of days.
So much to do and what fun!! x Coty
