Aqua Days




                        Hello everyone,

               While spring is probably a ways off yet,
            it is very spring like outdoors today so I
           thought I would use one of my favorite
      spring colors indoors today....aqua.



                   I used my lacy chargers again
              with soft aqua plated from
                    Homesense with pretty vintage
         plates from a yard sale.

A table for two.

The aqua teapot is also from
Homesense and holds lots of
tea.

A beautiful bouquet of tulips
adds to the spring feel.

    A small corner cupboard holds
some of my aqua collection.

         A vintage tin makes a good
         container for the bouquet of
       tulips. A large glass inside
           keeps it from leaking and also
gives it more weight.

    Pretty aqua teacups.


    A pretty stack of aqua plates
and teacups.


    I love this vintage crochet heart,
    a lovely gift from a friend who
            knows I love aqua.....thanks Arlene!

   Do you love aqua too?

                                             While yesterday was a good skating
                                                        day on the pond with my neighbor,with
                                                        all the melting going on now my husband
                                                        told me I better wear a bathing suit
                                                        if I was planning on skating on it
                                                        today.......   I think I will pass!!!!

                                                           I am joining BNOTP today for
                                                           Tablescape Thursday.

                                                                          Hope you have a lovely day!

                                                                                                        Carolyn

Your table is beautiful and I'm so envious of all your aqua! I have to tell you, the sunlight on your table makes it even more beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Beautiful table. Just love the softness of it. Aqua pieces are so gorgeous, it's my favorite color to decorate with.

I love aqua Carolyn and I enjoyed seeing all your pretty aqua dishes you've collected. Your photos are beautiful. Nasty weather here today with thunderstorms and heavy rain after the freezing rain yesterday. Take care.

After seeing all your pretty aqua tea things, I NEED an aqua teacup too! I have two Colclough teacups just like yours only one of mine is a soft green and the other one is white.

Dear Carolyn:
Don't be falling in that pond. Seeing all pretty things makes me realize that I will be excited to unpack mine (and maybe see what got broken?) Your aqua lady of course is always so special. I think your friend gave you a sweet gift too!

One of my favourite colours is aqua. It is so soft and dreamy. Love the sweet crinoline lady teapot and your tulips are lovely. We have a few of the same things. Enjoy the weekend, Carolyn.

Blessings,
Sandi
