Red Transferware Valentine's Tea

                                                                        Hello everyone,

                                                    I hope your week is going well.Since Valentine's
                                                   Day is almost here I am using my red and white
                                                   transferware dishes for my tea today. Did you
                                                   notice my new cream and sugar set ~ it is Vista
                                                   by Mason. The plate and tea cup are Vista as well.
                                                            My vintage hankie is being used as a
                                                            napkin for this Valentine tea.
                                                              Flowers for my tea table.
                                                               I spoiled myself with a delicious piece of
                                                               raspberry cream cheese pie.

                                              Do you have any special plans for Valentine's
                                                        Day this year?

                                                                          Take care,

Lovely! Your red transferware is perfect for a Valentine's table.

It looks beautiful Carolyn, with traditional red and white. I like the vintage hanky. We have no plans at this point and it's too late to make reservations, but I don't mind. A quiet evening at home is fine with me.

Oh my, your Vista is gorgeous, Carolyn! I shared Vista this week too. Your pie looks delicious. I have never made the raspberry cream pie but I know it is an outstanding treat. Lovely posting for Valentines Day. Happy Valentines week!

Your table is absolutely gorgeous! It was one of those "ahhhh" moments when I opened your blog!

So happy for you Carolyn that you could add another couple of pieces to your red transferware. The vintage hankie is pretty doubling as a napkin!
I imagine we'll go out for lunch on Valentine's Day and I hope you and your hubby have a nice time as well.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love red transferware, my fave! We're staying home and I'm cooking for hubby and me, we don't like to go out everything is packed with people, not like!
Happy Valentine's to you two.

Your red and white is beautiful and the pie looks scrumptious!!
We have been using "Memory Lane" red and white as everyday dishes...but...I had a small set of Strawberry Fair tucked away "to save". Yesterday I decided that no one in the family will enjoy it any more than we, out it came!! We will use it for everyday for as long as it lasts!!
Stay safe up there in your snow country! We are thinking about you.
