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
Quite jealous of your bloom. You're a bit ahead of us - and more cold & rain in forecast for tomorrow...
So sweet that you call her your "grandgirl." Those tulips are stunning.
What a lovely breakfast setting (and I am going to google that recipe!). I am a new follower and was telling my son & his girlfriend about your house. When I mentioned Kansas, he asked where, because he is a firefighter. Apparently there is a wild fire in NW Kansas right now. Since you haven't mentioned anything, I am pretty sure you are no where near. Anyway, I enjoy your blog very much!
Looks so yummy and love the blue and white. I loved your doggie pictures, we had corgis for years and now have two jack russell terriers!
Beautiful, I always love to see blue and white tablescapes. Your yellow really sets it off.
Absolutely lovely. Not sure which I love most, the dishes, the tablecloth, or the frittata. I think all three together are perfection. ;)

Lovely! Your china pattern is great.
Your breakfast table is so pretty with the forsythia. We're still waiting for it to pop around here!
The forsythia looks so fresh and so vibrant with the pretty blue and white dishes.
