Savoring Summertime............

with bright and easy livin' ........

I bought this salt and pepper set when I first started collecting S&P about 30 years ago.

I found these cute plates at Target.

I use quilts I've made for my tablecloths.

The cups and saucers are Taylor Smith Taylor.

Enjoy your lazy summer days.

Hello
your plates are really beautiful. I love the rectangular one and the checked one is pretty, too. Really summer colors. And you made a fantastic quilt matching to that. Makes a wonderful tablesetting.
Best greetings, Johanna

What a wonderful tea table! Your s/p are so cute! I have always wanted to collect s/p but I never had any place to display them. I still ooh and aah over them whenever I see a set I love. Your use of the quilt is lovely. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful tea with Tea Time and enjoy your day. Hope it's delightful.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your quilt makes a beautiful tablecloth. I am thinking of making a simple quilt to use as a tablecloth on my front porch. I am going to use outdoor fabrics. I've started collecting a few already. Your table setting reminds me of a summer picnic.
