Antiques and Old Lace

My beautiful Gardenia bush has been sharing it's fragrant flowers in abundance.  Between the Gardenia and Jasmines, the fragrance has been a delight to the senses.  Come join me as we sit on the porch and breathe in the sweet floral incense.

The lace tablecloth belonged to my Mom and she had it for as long as I can remember.  The luncheon napkins were a gift from my step-mother who brought them back from Spain in the early 70's.

Pottery Teapot made in England.

Crystal Pitcher was a gift from my hubby's Aunt.  She passed away a few years ago at the age of 96.

The inspiration for this post.

I have a chair waiting for you.
Let's enjoy the moment.

This is so pretty! Love that some of the table setting has sentimental value. Your flowering plants sound like they have a heavenly scent.

What a beautiful setting among the peacefulness of nature. Romance is in the air with all of the gorgeous lace. So lovely.

How fun to mix them with things from your family's past.
