Blue & White

Hello everyone,

I hope your week is going well.
January is flying by or so it seems.

As I mentioned in my last post I am
sharing a blue and white theme today.
Blue and white is my favorite so I
have lots of photos today.

A corner in our cottage~ Ocean Song.

Blue and white in our garden.....
a pretty tea time.

Our bed nook at our cottage

Croquet anyone?

Tea in the garden with the fragrance
of roses anyone?

Ocean Song again

Of course, as a lover of blue and white I
have collected lots of blue and white china
over the years.

Blue and white tea with pretty lilacs.

I love this teapot that my husband gave
me several years ago. The bouquet
from our garden makes my heart sing too!

Lots of beauty in our June garden.

Biscuits and tea anyone?

Another garden tea

A charming little cottage in Provincetown Cape Cod.

Our little blue garden shed.

Since,I have shared several summer teas,
I will now share some winter teas which
are more in keeping with our present

I hope you will let me know if you enjoy
my color themes and if there are
any other themes you would like to see.

Have a wonderful day!

Mellow Yellow

Hello everyone,

On this sunny winter day I am sharing
some of my sunny mellow yellow
photos . These were taken over the years
that I have been blogging so it is
a yellow theme day today.

A sunny Easter Tea in our little sunroom.

Love these yellow Celebration roses from
David Austen with the pretty tea cup.

Yellow flag iris around the pond
look pretty.

A beautiful yellow peony was added to
my collection of peonies a few years ago.

A beautiful yellow heritage home with
a tea setting.

Some pretty handmade quilts add to
a tea time in our terrace.

Yellow always looks so cheerful.

I will end with my pretty teacup again.

I hope you enjoy my themed posts as I
am going to do a blue and white
theme next. I will have lots to
choose from there as I could
probably do a whole book
on blue and white.

Thank you for your visit!

Take care,

Winter Car Boot Picnic

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
It was a lovely one here with fresh
snow and some sunshine.

I wanted to do a winter picnic photo shoot
for you so I gathered up my favorite
winter plaid picnic stuff and off we

We found a beautiful scenic road.

Now, we don't have a pretty truck or even
a pretty car but I did my best to
capture some winter beauty.

Some gingerbread cakes and hot tea
were just the thing for a winter picnic.

Well, that was fun and I have a few other
photos hoots I would like to do soon so
I will be back and I hope you will be too!

Take care,

It's all about the color purple/mauve

Hello everyone,

I have decided to do some different themes
on my blog for awhile.
I ahve been blogging for a long time
so even though these photos may
have been on before over the years
I am sure they are new to many of you.
So today, it is all about the color mauve/

The above photo was one that I took before
a garden tea.
The bed does not stay in the garden
terrace as it is not covered by
anything except virginia creeper.

It did make for a pretty photos hoot though.

I love the vintage quilt on the bed.

My old vintage chaise is a comfy
spot for a glass of lemonade in

I love these old mauve and white
transferware pieces.


Our porch with the old iron bed is
a great place to relax with a book.

Who doesn't love a bouquet of lilacs.

Mauve lilacs in our garden.

I love these Maritime Rose dishes.

I may have included too many lilacs
shots but I do love them.

A delicate teapot and cup and saucer
with a  pretty mauve clematis.

This old quilt has really made the rounds in our
garden. Love the purple Jackmani superbra Clematis.

My garden hat gets trimmed with lilacs

Lilacs and transferware.

I hope you like the theme idea for
the quiet months of winter. I have
well over a hundred thousand
photos on my computer to choose
from so hopefully I don't bore

Once again I want to mention that
