Winter Blues

Winter time also brings on the cool shades of blue. So I've set a cool blue kitchen table and hope you will join me for something warm and delicious.

Tea Service is Russian China
Blue dishes are Churchill Blue Willow, Made in Staffordshire England
Assorted Tea Cups
Vintage Linen

Oh I hear the timer going off for the Blueberry Muffins. I've got the water hot, ready to pour. Please join me and these other lovely ladies. We'd love for you to join us.

Due to a death in the family, I've not had the opportunity to write a new blog post, so this is a rerun from a few years ago.  Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Jocelyn,
I'm so sorry for your loss! Your blues are lovely and certainly worth posting for us a second time. The Russian tea set is so sweet and of course, I love Blue Willow. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time and take care.

Love your "Bridesmaid" Russian pieces which I do recognize as ones I sold for years in my shop. Your table looks very sweet and inviting. So sorry for your loss as well.


I'm so sorry about your family member passing on...pretty blue tablescape. Take care.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I was wondering if that blue set was Russian! It's very pretty.
