It's Winter here and the roses are still blooming.
I am still able to cut quite a few for indoors.
Because it's so cold outside, we aren't sitting out, so I may as well enjoy the blooms where I spend most of my day.
We are having home baked scones hot from the oven, with jam and cream.
I think we will use the blue rose Nikko and some mismatched English china cups
When the roses fade,I still love them for a few more days,
even the dropped petals,get left just where they are.
I even, after tea is over,use the tea setting as my table centrepiece.
We also visited our favourite Vinnies today.
Within 2 minutes of walking through the door,we spotted this gorgeous 16 piece setting.
My hubby even said that we couldn't pass it up at $17 the set.
Now that does not usually happen.
With the gold chargers from Christmas, I think it looks really nice.
We also found another addition to our pink glass collection
I think it is so pretty and quite large.
For $4, a steel
I quite often use fruit as a centrepiece for our table too.
I love the colours with white embroidered linen
My Australian friends,Keep warm
