Random Bits


 Hello everyone,

  With the onset of spring there is always
      lots to do before my first Japanese visitors
arrive so there has been little time for
blogging or photo shoots.
So today I just have some random
bits to share with you.




                                                                   Tea in the Boathouse sun room above.

                                                                      Love this old soup tureen
                                                                        Boathouse vignette
Our china cupboard with blue and
white transferware makes me
smile.



                                                                          Pretty teacups

                                                                            A cottage vignette

A pretty tea set.....a gift from a friend.

                                                        And last but not least  some early spring
                                                                   color in our garden.
                                                                     There is so much promise of good things
                                                                   to come in our garden and every day makes
                                                                   a difference!

                                                                          I hope you have a great weekend,

                                                                                        Carolyn

Beautiful tidbits. Our garden is blooming like crazy. I need to deadhead the roses, and the peonies are gorgeous. Thank you for your inspiration, I think I will go and set a vignette.
Joyously,
Betty

I love your random bits! I agree.. I know I can always come here and visit you and find it so relaxing and colorful. Your spring blooms are gorgeous... and I absolutely LOVE your header with all of the green furniture! So so pretty. I bet this is such a BUSY time of year for you! Wish I lived closer so I could come and visit your wonderful gardens (and you of course!). Marilyn

Have a nice day,
you are so beautiful. It is always what to watch. This time I have discovered classic Czech porcelain - Cibulák, which is on the sixth photo. Two cups wearing it, it had to be a way to reach you :)
Nice day, Lea Czech Republic
