Green and Rustic

Country Vintage Vignette

A rainy day in the fall is a good time to putter in the greenhouse; surprisingly, I have a lot of green rustic odds and ends, so here's a collection of them in a country vignette;

Green and Rustic

Between the little kitchen scale with it's bird shaped counter weight, and all the other odd little pieces that I've collected over the years, there is no end of charm and character in a display of country and rustic bits an bobs.

Old bottles fill a rustic twig handled box, seed heads and dried garlic scapes tumble from the green painted root basket. 

The backdrop is a green painted window, still with the glass intact. 

Dark green painted terracotta pots spill over with excelsior, a packing material long gone out of favor, but used in the old days to pack eggs and other delicate goods like fine bone china being hauled over a rough wagon road.

Do you like colors in your vignettes?  I seem to collect things that go together, without even meaning too; see more about red here, and blue painted things here...
