Antique Blue & White China



        Welcome April!

        It is so nice to welcome in April with
           a day warm enough to do some garden
         cleanup as our snow is pretty much all
              gone. I also woke up to the sound of birds
                  chirping away in the garden....always makes
me happy!

I thought I would change my display
of china on the table where I have my
afternoon tea. 

          I love this antique china but
         haven't shared it for awhile
            so I thought you might enjoy
seeing it too!


                                                                      I bought these locally at
                                                                      antique shops and although they
                                                                     are different patterns they are similar
                                                                     soft color tones.

                                                                              Mix and match
One of my favorite tea time spots
until it is warm enough to enjoy
tea in the garden.


                                                                I love this platter that I bought at
                                                                Timeworn Treasures and Antiques
                                                                last year.




                        I hope you have a great weekend
                        and thank you for your visits and
lovely comments.

                Take care,

                               Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,
We are planning our trip July 14-18 and will most likely stay in a B&B in Charlottetown. Not sure exactly where just yet but looking in to the Dawson House. I have sent you an e-mail to your gmail account with other ways for us to chat. It will come from plumdrum@aol.com Looking forward to catching up with you and I'm reading all I can on your beautiful island!

I love the blue and white but the platter with the cows is so gorgeous. I always like idyllic country scenes on china. Enjoy the weekend.

Blue and white always delights! Lovely pattern and soft colour. Enjoy your new display, hoping you receive some of the warmer temps these past few days that we have had in NS.
