A Sunny Table

After a harsh winter with lots of snow,
we haven't seen the sun a lot.
Today it is shining and it has warmed up
to 6 degrees C. (42 F.)

I gathered some yellow dishes 
to welcome the sun,
and set up my little table...




























I found this teapot below
 at a Thrift Shop last week. 
The cover is missing.
It is Japanese Nathco Edenware.
circa 1900-50
It would make a pretty vase.

The cake plate is my sister Annie's
from Macy's New York - Martha Stewart Collection

Hand painted

A newer teapot below


The flatware below is in a Sadler ginger jar.


Fancy identification marking under each cup.~

Roses design on the old flatware






Just living is not enough... 
One must have sunshine, freedom, 
and a little flower. 
~Hans Christian Andersen~


Thanks for your visit xo

Valentine Day
 is around the corner
 and I'm having friends
over for tea.
I set up my little table
with rose teacups and
goodies



I am serving Shortbread Hearts, 
Snowballs and Brownies
Roses on tea cups

Shades of Pink

 Roses are not in season,
 I made some with crepe paper.








My favourite cup and saucer



Shortbread Hearts sprinkled with powdered sugar






~Laura Secord Lemon and Mint Tea~












I'm also using china mugs








I'm always intrigued with the
writings under china.
All from England
except one from India.


For the recipes visit my cooking blog at Thel's Kitchen.
For the delicious brownies, 
I used a Devil Food Cake mix,
recipe adapted from Cooks.Com
I added dried cranberries and pecans.


Happy Valentines Day

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, 

for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

  Ralph Waldo Emerson
