We were gone all last week to visit Daughter Sarah and her Andy in Minnesota. A dear friend watched the house and Cat while we were gone.
Imagine our surprise when we got home to find this in the breakfast room . . .
A clean white tablecloth on the table, one of my blue and white jugs filled with flowers . . .
And the table set for breakfast with my Spode plates and cups, my wheat juice glasses, and clean napkins in my silver napkin rings.
It has to be the best tablescape ever -- it was so welcoming after a very busy and exhausting week and a long tiring drive home.
I was so pleased with the care with with my dear friend set the table -- and added flowers from my garden as well.
But the best surprise of all was the plate of blueberry muffins on the kitchen counter AND the breakfast casserole and bottle of tomato juice that was in the fridge.
Having emptied the refrigerator before we left, it was nice to find breakfast fixings just waiting for us.
We were able to have a leisurely and good breakfast before we headed out to restock the fridge, pick up Oliver, the Corgi and gather our mound of mail.
It is nice to have friends!
Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see what other tablescapes there are this Thursday.
