A Country Touch at Thompson’s

A Country Trio

Don and MarySue Thompson's Corner Trio

I just love outside country decorating touches.  I don't claim to be good at making them happen myself but I certainly do recognize them when I see them.   And I usually know why I like them too.   This little corner trio is at my sister MarySue's house.   What a great way to treat an otherwise boring driveway corner.  

  • Being from the farm originally and having an appreciation for antique farm equipment as well, I have always liked the big wheels.   In addition, I have handled milk cans like this one  as a teen on the farm.   Plus, I'm a gardener.  So I am predisposed to like this trio.  But there's more.
  • I love the repetition of red and white.   Notice the country touch of leaving the "weed" in the flower pot, I suspect because the flower is white and fits the scheme, in fact adds to it.  
  • I love the variety and the trio.  It's a pleasing number of items with a delightful  contrast of  texture, shape and size with the large wheel, the middle sized can and the low  spreading red petunias.
