French Pillow Love & A Giveaway!!!!

I'm happy to announce another giveaway.  Sally from Word Garden, one of my sponsors has kindly offered to give one of Nancy's Daily Dish readers any pillow of choice from her adorable Etsy shop.  I've featured her pillows before and carry them in my store...as well as have some at home.  I love her designs, her style and her sweet spirit.



How cute is this pillow?  Sally makes these 'Your City is Famous' pillows with any city, or town, of your choice.  I had some made for my shop with Tulsa, Jenks and Bixby.



 Sally made all these other pillows piled high on a bed at the shop.  French document, Crown No. 12, and the cute Bee pillow.

This pillow with five ornately detailed teapots is one of her newest designs...perfect for my shop too!

If you like burlap then you'll love these great French themed pillows Sally makes.  Don't you love the canceled stamp with the Eiffel Tower? 
I mixed these Frenchy pillow with this great linen blend, embroidered bedding set from ECityDirect.  If you're looking for bedding or a bed in bag set...this is THE place to go.  This set costs less than $70 and comes complete with the shams, comforter, bedskirt and 3 throw pillows.


Some of my favorite burlap pillows from Word Garden are these two, the bird on branch and floral bouquet pillows.  I have one of each at home, and one of each displayed at the shop as well, here with a Jenny Lind teapot and a Midwinter cup and saucer.
 Brew yourself a nice, hot cup of tea and let's go to Word Garden.

To enter the giveaway all you need to do is:

1) Since it's Christmas time, Sally and I thought it would be fun to have you visit Word Garden and then come back and tell me what pillow you'd give as a Christmas present...of course you can be totally stingy and keep it for yourself!  Just let me know your fave.

2)  For an additional entry, Follow my blog, become a follower or tell me you are a follower

3)  Post my button on your blog and/or announce the giveaway on your blog. (If you're not a blogger, you can Tweet or FB the giveaway...just include the link on your comment)

The winner will be chosen via Random.org and announced one week from tonight.  May the commenting begin!

  88. The choice of pillows from the shop is easy . To give away or keep if I won is hard. The choice is Tea party.....My neighbor and I have them often. We even celebrate "Talk like a pirate day" with tea party. I have been collecting Jenny Lind for many years, if fact one of my daughters does too. I found her over the Thanksgiving holiday looking "wantingly " at some of mine. She will have to wait. Thank you for a new site to drool over. Mary

English Cottage Living Room - Before, Partly After & Still a Work in Progress

I am sorry for not posting more pictures of the progress we've made settling into this new (to us) home.   It seems life rushes by so fast and that at times, doing little things, even those that I love and enjoy, often get pushed aside and onto the back shelf of my mind where I tell myself, "I'll get to this later".  Well, it is later and though I don't have as much to share with you as I'd like, I'm going to at least share my favorite spot in our living room.  I promise to show the rest of the room soon but for now the opposite half of the living room has been occupied by my daughters boyfriend who has been staying with us for the past 7 or so weeks until his apartment is ready for him to move into, and so the couch is usually made up for him to sleep on!   Here is a photo of the current living room just as we found it, a small room just off the entry of the house with a nice marble and wood fireplace surround, hard wood floors, beautiful crown mouldi

The History of Johnson Brothers and The Friendly Village Tablescape

Last week, Shawn and I popped into a couple of estate sales and I picked up over 100 pieces of Johnson Brother's The Friendly Village .  I think I may have to hang on to 12 of the dinner plates and use them this year at Thanksgiving but the rest of them, including this 48 piece service for 8, will be you know where. I don't know about you all, but I have had enough of Summer and I am down right ready for the cooler temperatures of Autumn.  I've been doing a lot of rearranging around the house….I'm in one of those zones where I've got a zillion projects going on, even if half of them are just in my mind that I'm contemplating!   We've also been moving kids out and around.  Three of them are out and the three still at home are moving or rearranging their rooms around.    Since I am yearning for Fall, haven't posted any tablescapes in a while and just got these Friendly Village pieces I decided to set the table with them.      Oh great, I

Decorating with Brown Transferware & $100 GIVEAWAY

Brown was introduced as a transferware color around 1829-30 and is the least expensive of colors to make. Therefore it is fairly common, so far as transferware goes, to find.  It is also one of the most collected colors and it is probably the most versatile of colors in my opinion.  Brown is neutral and looks good with any color scheme from pastels to rich jewel tones, but it is with the ushering in of Autumn that I see it popping up in home decor and vignettes the most.  Though, most of these rooms and vignettes are decorated with brown pieces year round, it just seems the perfect time to share them.  I may have to do another post because there are so, so many more equally beautiful spaces that have incorporated the use of displaying brown transferware  and I can't fit them all here. So, check these lovelies out and then stick around for the giveaway at the bottom of the post. This vignette just stole my heart the first time I saw it.  So many of us have vintage luggage

The Aesthetic Movement and Transferware

What is the Aesthetic Movement? The Aesthetic Movement refers to a period of time in the late 19 th century (1870-1900) which was a backlash to the formal Victorian years.  Artists and writers of the Aesthetic movement period maintained the belief that art should provide refined sensuous pleasure, rather than convey moral or sentimental messages.  They believed that art did not have any didactic purpose; it need only be beautiful.  Japanese art had a great influence on Aestheticism. Aesthetic interiors were often decorated with Japanese prints, screens, fans and other objects. An appreciation of the art of Japan is seen in the work of many Aesthetic artists and designers such as James McNeill Whistler and E.W. Godwin. photo credit Country Living The Aesthetes developed the cult of beauty, which they considered the basic factor in art. They ascertained that life should copy art and considered nature as crude and lacking in design

Decorating with Blue Transferware and a GIVEAWAY!

   If you haven't already been over to Enchanted Home , you'll want to go over after you finish this post because the wonderful Tina, who authors the incredibly gorgeous blog,  has a great post up about decorating with dishes plus she's hosting a giveaway to my online shop, English Transferware !  Details at the end of the post! I know Tina loves blue and white (just look at her header and you'll know!) and has a collection of her own. In honor of Tina, I've decided to share some of my favorite images of rooms decorated with and often around blue transferware collections.  You can see more rooms decorated with blue transferware on my Pinterest board . To me, Charles Faudree is just about as synonymous with English transferware as he his with French Country Decorating...he seemed to always find a use for it in his incredibly detailed decorating schemes.  Isn't this bedroom charming? I love this next image from Decor Magazine.  Look how the blu

My English Country Mom Cave

Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting a Home Goods Mom Cave contest with four lucky winners.  Come on in to my little niche I've carved out of my house.  This is where I work, create, relax, read and chat with friends and family. This is one of my favorite spots in the house to read about one of my favorite subjects...English transferware or poetry, and drink tea.  I often start and end my day right here. Next to the chair is an antique dumbwaiter which holds some decorative items as well as lots of poetry books.  This is the view of the room from the wing back chair.  This cozy room serves as a small living room, although it's not uncommon to have 8 or 9 of the girls in here during family gatherings.  It's usually where we all wind up to have coffee and visit. . On either side of the sofa I display some of my vintage Canine figurines on Spode meat drainers. Above the sofa are some of my favorite paintings.  The one directly over the sofa my Mom pain
