Pink and Purple Vintage

pink tablecloth setting

This week I want to show you another of my vintage table cloths.  This one is pink and purple with  gold ribbon.   It almost looks East Indian in inspiration with the purple and gold urns.

Lovely details in the cotton.


I set the table for a ladies afternoon of cards.   I used my Mother-in-law’s Johnson Bros. “British Castle” dishes for tea.   The scones were a recipe that Carolyn of Aiken House and Gardens had shared some time ago.   I added dried cherries to mine.

These were easy to make and were very tasty with a little strawberry jam.  I will make these again often.

What a cosy table!
Your table cloth is a beautiful piece indeed and those dishes....

This all looks so lovely and welcoming, Val. I adore vintage linens and have some of the Old Britain Castles myself, although mine is in the red and white. Hope you had a great weekend! – g

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
