If you are new here, welcome.

Saturday Morning Gather is my weekly newsletter where I share things going on at Vintage Home, and also inspiration and things I have found during the week that I think you might enjoy.

If you’ve been around a while, as always, I am so grateful to you!! I truly appreciate you showing up and continuing to support my blog.

Gather round and grab your coffee or favorite morning drink of choice and let’s take a look at what’s been happening this week.

This week, I shared a fun “peachy” themed tablescape just in time for summer and peach season!

In case you missed it, you can see that here.

White dinner plates are topped with a peach pattern melamine plate and a white linen napkin with a woven napkin ring sits beside each place setting. The center piece is a large pedestal white bowl filled with fresh peaches and peach tree leaves, and 3 vintage brass candlesticks with white tapers surround the centerpiece.

And if you love a good peach recipe, here’s a delicious peach cake recipe.

It’s super easy to make and is my go-to for summer!

I’ve been working out of town quite a bit since February for a decorating/design job, so my own projects and home decorating are a bit behind.

However, I did find time in between travels to brighten up my front door just in time for summer.

I shared a couple of weeks ago the color options I was considering, and suprisingly, very few of you picked the color I decided on.

I’m still unsure about the color for long term, but I kind of like it for summer. It’s a happy color!

What do you think?

These were my color choices. I decided on Benjamin Moore Mineral Green.

The photo on the right was the “before” of my door. That color is Sherwin Williams Grizzle Gray.

and some other amazing things I found…..

a beautiful and delicious lavender cake with apricot jam….

this gorgeous bed makeover and different ways to strip furniture…..

these adorable DIY lemon candles…..

this super cute garden trellis/obelisk DIY…..

my new favorite shoes.…. (I bought them in clear, and I am wearing the SO much because they go with everything!)

this beautiful devotional book…… (a very dear friend gifted this to me a few months ago, and I love it so much. Not only is it a great devotional book, the watercolor artwork is beautiful! It makes a wonderful gift too!)

this amazing hat tote my daughter and son in law gave me for Mother’s Day! I can’t wait to use it on my next trip/vacation!!

    How exactly are you hanging that large basket on your door?
    It is lovely. Faux lavender?
    Since green seems to be the color this year, I am not surprised.
    Thanks for sharing

    1. The basket is hung with a large command hook, and the lavender is real. It is in a pot, and I just take it out every few days to water it.

    1. Thank you! I think it will be fun for the summer months, then we’ll see about for fall.

    J’aime beaucoup la nouvelle couleur de la porte.
