Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A Cheery Cherry Breakfast

What a lucky girl am I?
A friend brought me a gift

 Of cherries!

Cheery Cherries!

Perfect for a breakfast centerpiece!

And for breakfast muffins
Baked in my grandmother's muffin tin

My Johnson Brothers Indies
Which I have christened my "breakfast" dishes
(Doesn't everyone have a different set of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner?)

And a blue basket with the cherry muffins
As well as the remainder of the cherries as a centerpiece!

The muffins are small so you need two
(it is an old muffin tin after all, made before muffins became "mega")

I like making breakfast special every day of the week
With the breakfast table set with dishes, cloth napkins (in my silver rings), glasses for juice and a coffeepot for the coffee (rather than the carafe!)

It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday

Hi Martha,
The cherries look delicious and beautiful in that bowl as the centerpiece. The muffins look like a yummy treat as well. Nice friend you have to share those with you. :)
Have a great weekend!
