Friends and Family Gather Here

Spring time is such a lovely time to invite over friends and family.


Another beautifully hand painted service from my Mother in Love.

I love using my depression glass "Heritage" plates.

And these lovely Lenox Butterfly dishes welcome in Spring.






Years ago I purchased this stainless set from the Oneida outlet in Georgia. Living Quarters "Ashville".



Yes Spring is in the air. What a lovely time to entertain friends and family.

Wonderful tablescape. I love the Lenox dishes. I wished that I had them. Last week, I was able to finally visit with my aunt and present her with the teapot that matches her china...the same Lenox dishes. At 88, she can still squeal with delight. She collects teapots, but had not bought the one to match her china. It made my day to bring such simple joy to my favorite aunt.
