*Winter* Blue and White

Hello Everyone,
Welcome to My Cozy Corner *2013* edition.
 The weather here in the far northern end of California has been bitter cold.  We had some snow and I took a few photos of the scenery in the garden. Go Here. Then the temps dropped down to the low 20's for a few days. I have a very sunny window in the dining room, so I decided to photograph a few vignettes of my new tea set I received as a gift before Christmas.
I think it's incredibly beautiful.
 Lomonosov Russian Porcelain made in Russia and I have an idea what the pattern is. But not sure enough to go public. If any of you know the pattern, please make a comment or e-mail me. I keep a binder on my china for future reference. You never know when you might have to liquidate a collection.
Hopefully I have six granddaughters and they will be interested in collecting china also.

 The little cherubs are sunning themselves in the window.
 During January, 2013 I'm going to dedicate my posts to all things Blue and White. I love Blue and White. In the fall of 2012, I collected a couple of new Blue and White tea cups and saucers. I will be sharing them with you during my January Winter Blue and White.
This Blue and White tea set was a bonus and a complete surprise to me. ENJOY!
 I'm  also going to try and improve my camera skills.
 The garden is bare this time of year and I needed a little something floral. I added baby's breath from the grocery store to this rather amazing Vintage Viking Cobalt Blue Swung Art glass vase from my mother's estate.  It  added just the right amount of flower power to my vignette.
 Food? Yes! Always food...
 Lemon Squares Supreme Go Here for recipe.

I gave the cuties a new coat of white paint.
They were a little dingy hanging in my mother's bedroom for so many years.

How many ways to display tea cups? I don't know, but I love every way possible.
Need a romantic touch? Add a burning candle.

Thank you for visiting My Cozy Corner.
Hope you enjoyed the Winter Blue and White.
