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.

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…

Better yet,…

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…

French Country Tablescape

  I’m participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.     This is a collection of French Country items on my kitchen table. Since my table is round, I have a floral in the center with an assortment of items surrounding the floral; hen with chicks, decorative vinegar, candle, olive jars and a bird house.…
