The love of blue

My love of blue dishes has not waned. Whenever I find a pretty blue dish or cup and saucer, I have to add it to my growing collection.

Rows of blues

I love changing the china to reflect the different seasons.

Do you display china through the year? Which season is your favorite?

The Back Porch

Ever since I started reading Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch, I've been in love with her back porch.

Our porch is not as large as Susan's but I wanted to have a little place to escape to read, enjoy tea or lunch or just watch the birds as they come and go from the feeder.

My original thought was to find some pretty white wicker furniture. But when I found this set a couple of years ago, I knew it would be perfect for our little nook.

A little note about these luncheon napkins. My step-mother gave these to me, along with a matching tablecloth. The tablecloth was used til it became thread bare and badly stained, but I never used the napkins. They were a wedding gift, so they are probably considered vintage by now ;-)

I've been picking up these Boopie glasses at the thrift stores.

Most mornings, you can find me sitting out here with my book and cup of green tea. You are always welcome to join me.

I was thinking about you, dear friend... I sat outside, enjoying the early morning breeze and taking in the beauty of the day.

So I laid out a place setting, just for you.

  Let's share some fellowship time together.

I love to sit on the back porch, watch the birds at the feeder and listen to the water flowing in the pond........

and from the fountain.
So this morning, I invite you to share this little bit of beauty with me
  ...... and enjoy the God who is sovereign over all.

Breakfast on the Porch

Taylor Smith Taylor dishes, vintage glasses and an antique quilt add to the coziness of the morning.

Are you ready?
................. for breakfast on the porch.
