Decorating for Fall


Harvest Greetings Tea Friends!

Have you been busy adding a touch of fall to your home?


This weekend we will be celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada.


The tea plate and bowl are Johnson Brother's Autumn Monarch.



I decided to enjoy the Chinese Lanterns indoors.


I'm also enjoying the change from my red and white transferware to the brownish tones of Johnson Brother's Friendly Village.




I plan to leave the Friendly Village china on the shelf and sideboard until the American Thanksgiving day and then return to my red and white for Christmas.




I ordered this  Sadler cube teapot with a dear country scene  for just $6.49!  I thought it would blend with all of my transferware. 


Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!


Praying for all of the victims and families of the Las Vegas tragedy.

Embracing Fall!


Hello Tea Lovers!

It's a beautiful Fall Day!

And I'm loving the near 30 degree Celsius heat!





The teacups are both Royal Albert.





I'm finally starting  to decorate for fall.

I've also been busy celebrating four  family birthdays this week and treasuring the special time with my sweet grand children. 



My dear two year old grand daughter loves playing with play dough. 


I tried to get a picture of her pushing a tea wagon I bought her but she ran to the play dough before I could snap one. (Maybe next time).


Last night was my son's 32nd birthday (you can see him in the background).  Hubby/Grandpa was enjoying our four month old little  grandson.

The Chinese Lanterns are popping up all over the garden.  


Such  intricate orange shapes.  





Are you getting ready for fall too?



See you next time!

Good-bye Summer, Hello Fall!


Hello Tea Friends

I'm a little sad to say good-bye to summer. So blue transferware may suit my mood today.


The blue and white china I am sharing today is  my mismatched collection, consisting of Johnson Brothers, Ridgeway, Spode and Sadler pieces. It seems to blend together nicely.  





I love this Johnson Brothers shape of teapot.  ( I have it in red and white too). 



The roses continue to bloom! Yay! :)


It's a beautiful summer-ish day at the cottage and I also love being outdoors.


This is my collection of wee, treasured creamers.
I just can't pass one by while thrifting.







Today I sadly plan to put all of my wicker and garden furniture away.  After all, it is fall.


Sweet Sis found me this large teacup planter. 


A blue bird resides inside. 




I found this sweet Dutch girl and boy cream and sugar for $2.00 and later ordered the matching teapot from e-bay for $4.00.

Aren't their faces dear?


I actually had seen the set at an antique store in Ferndale for $120.00.


You can see the fall chinese lanterns blooming in the background so I must embrace fall.


Are you a little sad to say Good-bye Summer?


Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Fall to You All!
