Pontoon Picnic

P is for Pontoon Picnic. . . I’m joining Alphabe-Thursday ~ this week’s letter assignment is the letter P.  Our picnic paraphernalia was purchased at Kohl’s including the placemats, napkins & napkin Rings, fish bowls & glasses.  This place setting is not our normal boating picnic fare~ for practical purposes we typically use plastic :-)   To drink~ Pellegrino. . .  This Pontoon Picnic wouldn’t…

Blossom Bird Blue

                                                    I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.                                                              I’ve always loved birds~  I tend to gravitate towards eggs, nests, and bird images. I found this pattern at Home Goods this spring, Blossom Bird Blue by 222 Fifth.                                              I only picked up a…

Porch Dining for One

 A couple of weeks ago, Hubby was out-of-town for the weekend on a fishing excursion, so the children & I had the house to ourselves. I’m comfortable entertaining myself, it doesn’t take much more than something to read, a glass of wine, and a place to curl up with the dogs. This area on my porch fits the…

Fitz & Floyd for Easter

 I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  This Easter table is set with Fitz & Floyd Classique d’Or and Tulipe d’Or salad plates and mugs. Bunnies and candy add a touch of whimsy.  Read the history of Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit here.  Chicks & Flowers grace chocolate from House of Dorchester, that I found at…

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

I was inspired to put together a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party after having seen Disney’s Alice in Wonderland (in 3D no less :-)  The Hollywood Reporter calls it:  “Truly, Madly, Wonderful”  &  Roger Ebert says : “Enchanting”.  And, as my friend Annie, film aficionado that she is says: “It’s Not-To-Be-Missed!”  See the Madly Wonderful Johnny Depp in the trailer Here. Better yet,…

From Harvest Time to Spring Time, An Easter Transformation

    I’m joining Susan’s Tablescape Thursday party.          This is my grandmother’s china, you may remember seeing here.  It is Harvest Time by Johnson Brothers. I was inspired to bring it into spring time, when I ran across these striped placemats at Home Goods, a few months ago, that tied the pink together with the…

Spring Tulips from Fitz & Floyd

    I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday Party…       I’m sharing my Fitz & Floyd Tulipe d’Or…nothing says Spring like Tulips!         I found this tulip runner at Home Goods that’s a fun complement to this pattern.         There are four…

Longing for Spring

     I’m joining Susan’s Tablescape Thursday Party at Between Naps on the Porch.       Not a functioning tablescape this week…more of an assortment of green and garden related items to play with, for inspiration during this dreary weather. I have to remind myself that spring is around the corner :-)         While out…

Harvest Time by Johnson Brothers (Lottie’s China)

        I’m joining Susan for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.      Last week with Spring on the Horizon, I had a botanically inspired tablescape to share. This week, our weather has taken a nose dive. Last weekend’s weather was a teaser. Winter is still here, scarves, gloves, and coats are…

Portmeirion Botanic Garden

  I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.         I thought I would pretend Spring was already here, instead of early morning temperatures we’ve had lately in the 20 degree range.           This is my everyday pattern, Botanic Garden by Portmeirion. It’s available almost…
