Etsy Cottage Style summery Cottage Color Party!

 The color for August is Orange. My favorite color is Pink, followed by Aqua and Orange. And this time of year I'm thinking Orange. Fall is just around the corner and I'm getting in the mood to sew with some of my orange fabrics!
 Look at these cute miniature baskets I purchased.    They are about 2" by 3" tall.
I think I'm going to make some little pumpkins to go inside.
I got this large pot a few years ago from a relative and I think its so pretty.
On the bottom it reads: Grimwades  Stoke on Trent

My pretty orange Snap Dragons
And  beautiful climbing Rose!

And Last but not least is this figurine that I bought my sister a long time ago,  when we were very young.
She stands 9" tall and has a light pumpkin dress and orange bow under her neck.
My sister was downsizing, moving from a house to a condo.
This same Figurine is one of many things I got from her.

My Victorian Garden Pictures for the Cottage Garden Party

I'm linking up with Etsy Cottage Style for the Cottage Garden Party!
Here are some of my flowers from my Garden...................


Some little birds taking a break from the heat.

A few years ago I was given some nice old china and tea cups from a family member who is now deceased.

I found this purse in one of the boxes. Its in very good condition, with no beads missing and no tears.
The beads look kind of dirty on the photo, but their not they are iridescent and show up this way on the picture. I was wondering if anybody would have an idea how old this purse is?
