Welcome to my last Blue and White showcase for January 2013.
I've enjoyed showing off my Blue and White this month.
The weather in Northern California has been beautiful this past week, and
I've been in the garden pruning, transplanting and designing the pergola area.
If your new to my blog Go Here for the story of My Secret Garden.
Now it's Blue and White Time.
A photo moment! The orange bow was perfectly in line.
I just couldn't help myself. The camera made me do it.
This tablescape was a gem to create.
I've been collecting this and that for this tablescape just about a year now.
The Salad Plate is Sango 'ATHENS '8872 CHINA
Pink tulips are from the local grocery store.
What a great resource to have beautiful fresh flowers in the winter months for under $10.00 dollars.
The White Geese napkins rings were my inspiration for this tablescape.
I couldn't resist buying these white cut work place mats at TM, and using them as napkins.
The White Goose I found at the GW. The white flatware was purchased at Walmart for $10.00 dollars.
This tablescape could be the one of those thrifty tablescapes I do once in awhile...
The Blue and White dinner plates were .99 cents each at the GW.
'The Spode Blue Room Collection 'British Flowers-Poppy' First Introduced c. 1831
If you have ever been to England you will see fields of red poppies growing all over the English countryside.
I used another Sango 'ATHENS' 8872 for my chargers.
The white plates were my mother's everyday dishes.
I love the smaller white cup and saucer. They have no markings and they also came from my mother's home.
Truly a beautiful sight. I love tulips especially white ones. This bouquet has a delicate touch of pink.
The cordial glasses or "pony" glasses are also from my mother's estate. I'm so grateful
I have so many beautiful things that belonged to my mother.
A couple of interesting pieces.
A Victorian silver plate sardine fork and a silver plated master butter knife.
The tulips have bloomed into a beautiful bouquet.
