Blue Moon Tea

I love blue china.  Whether it is deep navy, Colonial Blue or Azure blue.  I think Blue adds a refreshing touch to any table.







This beautiful tea cozy was sent to me by Marydon Ford of Blushing Rose several years ago.  I love the delicacy of the fabric and the way it adds so much class to my tea table.

Happy Easter


Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?" She said to him, "Yes Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world." (John 11:25-27)
"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said" (Matt. 28:6)

May you rejoice in knowing that the Savior of this world lives.

Wishing you a Blessed Easter.

Traveling views

Traveling inside Tennessee can sometimes bring some interesting sights.

This was a startling view from my car window.  I wondered if it was some kind of museum.


And these are prevalent in the shopping centers.


Rocketing into Alabama.

Easter Time Tea

Easter is the season of Spring.  How can you not enjoy all the flowers Easter brings forth with such a burst of exuberance?  I know some of you are still wading through winter and some snow, but you KNOW that Spring IS coming!!













My table is a romance of Roses and Spring time.  Let's celebrate it together!

Spot on!

When we moved into our new home a couple of years ago, we replaced the carpet in several rooms of the house.  After a few months I noticed a spot on the family room carpet.



Of course I was not happy about this spot on our new flooring.  

Recently I read on a blog (and I'm sorry that I can't remember where it was first posted) about spot cleaning using Club Soda!!  Hum........ now this sounded interesting.

So I figured I would give it a try.

 I soaked a cotton ball with the Club Soda and rubbed into the spot.
 I then rubbed it with a couple of paper towels to absorb the soda.
And wa-la!!  The spot is gone!!!!

Okay, you can't beat a 69c bottle of Club Soda :-)

Birds of a Feather

Spring is here.  The birds are singing their happy songs as they make their little nests.


This time of year is perfect for a luncheon  on the patio.






Pink glassware adds a touch of femininity. 


I love these dishes.  The pattern - Asiatic Pheasant.





You are always welcome to sit at my table.
