It was a leisurely breakfast this morning,
because I had been gone
for a week
visiting Grandgirl in Minneapolis
We had much catching up to do!
for Husband Jim stayed home
with Doogie and Dolly
A leisurely breakfast means a clean crisp white tablecloth,
white linen napkins in silver napkin rings
coffee for Jim, tea for me
a cup and saucer for me, a mug for Jim
And a centerpiece of forsythia
For my little town was abloom upon my return!
Spode Blue Italian
Our "everyday, all the time dishes"
But blue and white always sets a pretty table!
A frittata for breakfast -- a favorite
potato and basil
the basil, alas, from the store, not from the garden
from one of my favorites, Ina Garten
and it's one that I make over and over again.
Breakfast over, dishes done, I went shopping
for tulips for the breakfast room table!
Stunning red and yellow ones
Which looks wonderful in the Spode Blue Italian pitcher!
They'll brighten many breakfasts
(and lunches and dinnrs!)
It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday
