It's Tea Time and a Winner

                                                                        Hello everyone,

                                  It is good to be back for tea time again ~ missed a couple
                                  of weeks while we were away.
                                         This week I am sharing the Maritime Rose china by
                                         Copeland again....it is so pretty!
                              This pattern is very old but not sure who it is made by.

                                        They look pretty together ~ I love to mix and match.

                                                      A beautiful old quilt from Timeworn Treasures
                                               A lovely Easter bonnet and pretty china ~ perfect!
                   We have another day or two with a painter in the house this week
                              and then I hope to finish up my indoor spring cleaning. I will
                              show you the changes when they are all done but some of the
                              painting is more to freshen up then dramatic changes ~ paint
                              colors seem to be harder to pick then they used to be!

                             Now for the winner of my new book/magazine.......
                             the winner is Podso  ~ congratulations!
                              Please send me your address and I will have it
                              shipped to you right away.
                              Thank you to all who entered!

                                                           The first  blooms in our spring garden are
                                                          finally coming!
                                                          It felt so good to get out and do some
                                                          raking and pruning etc. in the garden...
                                                          good things to come!!!

                                                          I am joining Tea Time Tuesday today
                                                          at Rose Chintz Cottage and
                                                           Tea with Friends at
                                                           Bernideen's Tea Time Blog.

I love the mauve theme in today's post and Maritime Rose is one of my favourite china patterns. I must have tea with mine one day soon. Congratulations to Podso on winning your new book!


The blue dishes are gorgeous, I'm swooning! The Maritine Rose is so beautiful too! Lovely post.

The tea sets are beautiful. The blue reminds me of blue wedge wood. I'm excited to have won your book!
