Sometimes it's nice to just set a tray and sit quietly enjoying peace and quiet.
Today I did just that, I played all day with dishes and ended up cleaning out numerous drawers.
I even organized my winter jumpers. They were scattered in different places during Summer.
Now they are all in one spot,freshly folded ready for Winter.
Now back to my tea tray. I am sipping on cinnamon and orange tea
made in my lovely little Sadler teapot.
The tray cloth and napkin was a thrift find many years ago,and just washes up as good as new each time it gets used, which is often. The napkin slides into the large flower on the left.
One of my most favourite china teacups
Friends are coming for lunch on Sunday
I wanted to include pink for Pink Saturday with Beverly,as I haven't visited for a while.
I made the napkin holders and pink napkins
I wanted to use a mix of china,and because it had a silver border,
I wanted some silver chargers.
I couldn't find any anywhere,so I purchased 4 white plastic one's with green flowers around the edge.
I just sprayed them silver. I think they look quite nice.
I am using my late mothers Noritake set. My brother bought it back from Vietnam in the 60's when he served in the Australian army there. I think it is so pretty.
Depression glass rose bowl
and pink French white wine glasses
I have teamed some of my Bridal dinner set to compliment the Noritake,as it didn't come with bowls or bread and butter plates
I am constantly on the look out for more pieces in this pattern.
I managed to find the salt and pepper shakers in Vinnies for $4
Pink depression glass candle holders
Thrift find vegetable dish
We all drink tea rather than coffee after lunch
We are having English Breakfast tea with cheese and fruit
I love the little fruit plates I found while on a recent hunt
