Welcome Spring!

                                                              ~ Welcome Spring ~

                        It is such a delight to welcome spring this year as we had a long winter
                        with more snow and colder temps then the past few years. So, to welcome
                        spring, let's celebrate with a pretty spring time luncheon!
                Don't you just adore these beautiful Spode Copeland 'Maritime Rose' dishes?

                                   These hydrangeas are faux but pretty none the less and a
                                   perfect match with the setting today.
                                         A new hat for spring ~ thank you Janice! It is perfect for my
                                        spring celebration........although I might have to wait a few
                                        weeks to wear it unless it looks good with mittens! Our temps
                                       still haven't reached the spring level yet.

                                      This old transferware platter speaks of spring time too.

                                               I am loving these spring time colors!

                                                              Soft and sweet!

                 Hope you enjoyed this spring celebration and may you be blessed with
                             all the joys of the season!

                              I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday today.

                            If you  love these dishes too they are available at Time Worn Treasures
                            and Antiques on the St. Peter's Rd. Charlottetown.

                                                                          Thank you for visiting,

Such a soft pretty blue... it calls softly to Spring. May it come quickly to your neighbourhood.


Stunning and your dishes are to die for! I love how you created your setting, along with the lovely transferware platter.

Yes, I do love your Maritime Rose china! I have 4 dessert plates, 6 saucers and 4 teacups that were my Grammie's and they are among my favourites. Your spring table is gorgeous. We're getting a bad snowstorm here today to welcome spring. I'm just happy that it won't stay too long and will soon be melting. Happy Spring to you!

Oh, my goodness, Carolyn...these dishes are absolutely beautiful! I hadn't seen this pattern before. And your table is, of course, and as is expected, gorgeous, and soft and dreamy. I just posted a purple table, so I wanted to see what lovely creation you had with lavender! Can always count on loveliness from you! ~Zuni

Rosemary and Thyme said...

Wow, Carolyn. I am truly speechless. You have created the most stunning and dreamy spring table. The sweet shade of lavender is perfection. You have done it again.

Have a great week.
