But Sunday we were given a gift . . .
So we ate breakfast on the porch -- with, of course, my beloved blue and white -- this Spode Italian with matching cups and saucers.
The blue and white salt and pepper pots are a gift from dear friend Pat from On Crooked Creek
The tablecloth was an estate sale find and falls to the floor -- I love the colors and I think it was at the most $5. And it's perfect on the porch!!!
A Spode blue and white pitcher full of false sunflowers (it is summer on the prairie) and a bucket from our beloved Fort Scott Greenhouse holds a mother fern. For in the summer ferns are always on the porch!
Oliver knows which side his "bread is buttered on" -- and you never stray too far from where food is served. For a morsel may just come your way!!!
It's a lazy Sunday morning and we linger over another cup of tea before we clear the table and Husband Jim is off to his chores and once the washing up is done, I'm off to the garden. I've been given a present -- a fairly decent day in July to work in the garden!
And on the porch, two new things -- a wonderful wicker rocker and a bay tree. The rocker because I wanted to be able to sit 6 on the porch. (For sometimes we do appetizers and drinks on the porch before we go inside for dinner.) The bay tree because last year I lost my 6 year old tree -- too hot and too dry (and it was in August when I was mobile so it wasn't due to my surgery!) This one is bigger than the one I lost but I had a coupon!!!! So the price was reasonable!
It's Thursday and time to join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
