While ‘thrifting’ this spring and summer, I have found a few pretty cups and saucers. Then I realized they needed to be properly displayed so I could enjoy my vintage purchases. As you can see, I favor the cups with an interior design.
This goes along with my ongoing reorganizing process. While recently writing posts, I realized that some of my dish-related favorites were not readily accessible. Time to change that. Cups, saucers and plates were unwrapped from their tissue paper and put on display in a vintage cabinet. I think I have a problem. However, in regards to the KonMari Method of decluttering, they all ‘spark joy’ so they will be happy to stay.
It has been a busy summer week which has included thrifting and planning a tea outing with friends. This week I shall be attending an afternoon tea at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House as in the Ford automotive fame. Below photo from their website.
Soon I shall post about the afternoon tea details at the Ford Estate.
Recently I was a fortunate recipient of a generous giveaway by one of my favorite bloggers, Linda, at “More Fun Less Laundry.” If you have not yet visited Linda and when you are not laundering, I highly recommend you peak at her charming blog. With her wonderful photos and descriptive prose, it is easy to imagine that you are on one of her fun adventures or enjoying a homemade treat at one of her cleverly decorated tablescapes.
Yesterday, the giveaway (a Bean Bag as they are called on the East Coast) arrived from LL Bean. Can a canvas tote bag be considered pretty? Yes, if it has one’s initials nicely monogramed in a pretty color. Not only is it pretty, but it is practical and functional. Soon it will be traveling with me on a lavender-picking adventure. Thanks Linda!
Sharing this week with my favorite tea party hostesses:
Have a nice week,
