Seeing Red

Hello everyone,
       It is time to welcome February-the month of romance! 
These shots are just a little tribute to Valentine's Day.
This was my treat of the week today.
It was pretty much calorie free since I was going to eat the biscuit anyway and raspberries are fruit and I need to have a few servings a day of fruit to maintain good health so just a little whipped cream with a tablespoon of sugar or two-makes for a pretty good low calorie dessert wouldn't you say??? Ha!Ha!
It was good!
I am still seeing red!

I couldn't share red without showing my dishes again-could I?

Thank you for seeing my reds.

Take care,

Tea Time

Hello everyone,
    It was a beautiful sunny day here today so I enjoyed a nice walk and a skate on the pond.
Of course, a cup of tea is in order after a some fresh air.
So,I dug out my blue and white china today.
The china I used today came from an antique shop that has since closed down.
And once again,they are not matching but co-ordinate well.
This is the teapot pattern-in case anyone wants to know.
Biscuits always go well with a good cup of tea.

My husband bought me some pretty white tulips.

I got this iron thingy at a thrift shop awhile ago.

/Can't believe we are almost into February and not a single snowstorm- what is the Island coming too!!!

I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday again this week.

Thank you for visiting,

Kitchen Details

Hello everyone,
     Did you have a lovely weekend? I spent some time taking pictures of everything from tulips to little ones in pink tutus so I will have more to share with you this week.
I have made a few changes in our kitchen. This harvest table was one we bought many years ago when all our children were young and used to sit around this table having their meals and doing homework etc.It was a dark pine when we bought it. Anyway,my daughter had it for her family and recently got a new one so when we got it back I thought it was time for a coat of white paint-now I like it a lot better but it only has the base coat on yet.
The red and white pitcher and basin came from Coulson's in Summerside a few years ago and I love it filled with white tulips locally grown.

The shelf above the wood pellet stove.
The walls in our kitchen are a gray color with a hint of taupe.
I like being able to display my red and white transferware in these little racks.

I enjoy making a few changes around the house this time of year - it is the little details that make a home cozy don't you think?

Thank you for visiting.

Garden Design

Hello everyone,
    It is a cold windy day here so it is a good day for me to enjoy looking through my garden pictures from past years to see what changes I would like to make to the design of the garden. There are always changes that need to be made to improve color combo's or adding little bits onto the beds etc.
 So in the process I picked out some of my favorite summer collages just in case you too are in the mood for some garden color.

With January quickly coming to a close it won't be long until I am seriously longing to get back in the garden but for now I will be content to just know that garden season is coming soon!

I am joining The Rose Garden in Malevik today for Show off Saturday.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

In the Pink!

Hello everyone,
       I am in the pink here today and I know I have been showing a lot of tea cups lately but it is January and a little harder for me to come up with inspiration -it is so much easier when the garden is in full bloom.
I used my new 50mm lens for all of these shots.
I do have a thing for soft and romantic shots-so I like this one taken at f/2 so it has a short depth of field.
A peachy pink rose from the grocery store.It is my weekly treat to pick up a few flowers during the off season from the garden.

I did make a fresh batch of biscuits today to go with our tea.

I hope you are' in the pink' too!

I am joining How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday today.

Have a happy weekend.
