Tablescape # 19

Hello Everyone!

A Breakfast Tray for A Special Friend 


Last week a very dear friend of mine for over 40 years gave me this beautiful china. She knows how much I love dishes. How Sweet~
 Thank you so much dear friend.
























This china speaks to me. The beautiful plate, dessert dish and tea cup are so delicate.  I have no words to describe this gift.  Only the photographs can show the real beauty of this china.

Dishes are Haviland and Co. Limoges - Mark C (I don't know the pattern)
Silver plate teaspoon and butter knife - First Love
Vintage Napkin - Antique store
African Violet - Just purchased at Safeway
Vintage mini scarf - Antique store
African Violet basket - ?
Tray - Safeway 2 years ago.

  1. These are some beautiful dishes! Your friend is sooooo sweet. :) I love your basket of violets as well. I had them years ago but somehow my "brown thumbs" killed them. :( I can hardly grow anything, indoor or out!

  17. That china is absolutely gorgeous! So unique and elegant. I've noticed a trend this week of folks adding some "spring-y" touches to their vignettes and I think we are all itching for the next season. Your flowers really make me long for warmer days! Thanks so much for linking this up to Inspiration Friday this week!
