Tabletop Signs of Spring






There aren't any rules of course, but there are items in my dish collections that tend to emerge mostly in spring. They show up like tulips and daffodils in a sort of bloom from behind the cupboards and drawers.  




This little bee skep pitcher is one of them, finding its place on the table after hibernating the winter away in a dark corner.







This early majolica dish says welcome to the season too. And although rose patterned teacups are at home all the year round, a gathering of floral linens and china seem extra perky in spring. . . .


























What's springing up on your table lately?
I hope it's sweet!

Soooo pretty. I love the bee skep pitcher! Your flowery china is sweet too. It's cold here - below freezing every day but I'm trying to get springy in the house. Pamela

I think spring has arrived at your house...the pitcher is so pretty, but not quite as your linens, Jacqueline!

Sonia said...

I love all your spring pretties...especially your sweet bee pitcher...I adore anything with bees ...I have a bee skep honeypot on my table this week. The tea cup and saucer are so sweet! Happy almost Spring!

My tablecloths and napkins have gotten "lighter" over the past week or so -- yellows and blues instead of dark reds, greens and browns. And I've changed out the nightlight in the kitchen. In winter it's a clear plastic cat that looks like it's made of ice; in summer it's a seashell; but in spring and autumn it's a little china teapot. Soon the corduroy slipcover will come off the couch and be replaced by linen and battenburg lace. I love your little majolica dish!

Jacqueline,
Oh...the roses on the tea cups and saucers are very pretty! I do love roses, especially pink roses! I use my white eyelet tablecloth and the "green" dishes make their debut! Green seems to say Spring in the dining room for me! Lovely post!
Fondly,
Pat
