Its Spring break this week and kids are home and so am I. I had recently moved office to a space downtown so lately I'm not around much in the mornings until kids get off school. I do enjoy this arrangement though! My office is an interior design and decorating shop and I'm part of the team there. The ladies I work with are amazing and they feel more like a family to me then just friends.
The sweetest thing happened last week when a lady walked into the shop with a box full of china and dishes she said she brought out for me when she cleared her attic. The box had a set of blue and white transferware plates and miscellaneous cups and saucers. I fell in love with the pink footed teacup with gold polka dots. So this week, since I'm home I decided I wanted to use these gifted treasures for a tablescape. Together they all make for a cheery, colorful table for spring.
My IKEA pitcher is filled with white daisies, pink roses and tulips.
My darling pink footed teacup.
A caddy filled with pretty straws and napkins.
My new treasures: The blue and white plates.
By the window I have a wooden box stuffed with pretty plates. The box is one I made and tutorial can be found here: http://creatingvintagecharm.blogspot.com/2014/06/do-it-yourself-vintage-style-tool-box.html
I love my new treasures and I am very thankful for my new friend and for thinking of me. I will cherish these gifts for a long time.
I hope you are enjoying this most beautiful season of Spring. I am patiently awaiting for my lilacs and peonies to bloom.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!! xo
