Pretty Plates & Platters








I found another of these blue topped mason jars this afternoon. So perfect for spring. We're seeing them filled with flowers everywhere these days, but mine is perched on top of them today.







I always enjoy pretty platters and plates, but this combination brings out the farm girl in me.






A bench out under the cherry trees is almost as farmy as it gets around here, but I have a large imagination. A few minutes of dreaming in the fresh spring air makes for a nice pause in the day.






















Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses
 (so to speak). . . .
It's a long time before our roses bloom, but it's been wonderful to begin seeing a few beautiful rose garden posts from your warmer climes around Blogland.

 But now it's back to tackling the clutter!
Happy days!

Love the blue tops on the jars! I would leave them on too. The blues, pinks, and greens together are so pretty.

I love dreaming I am out on a farm. A rustic bench seems to serve the purpose. xo Laura

I am always amazed at how you make simple everyday vintage items look so beautiful. Lovely photos. I've never seen a blue topped mason jar. Have a beautiful day! Pamela

Your post makes me think of the days long ago when they would picnic outside with the china and linens under the shade tree. I have so many pictures of my ancestors doing just that.

Hi Jacqueline,
I am such a dishaholic so your pics just sing to me. Love the rose detail on the plate. So inspiring to paint.
Your roses must bloom later then here in Texas. My knockouts are in full bloom. I have over 50 bushes.
Thank you for sharing such lovely posts to inspire.
Happy Wednesday.
XO CM

Such pretty plates, Jacqueline. So evocative of spring and summer days to come. And you have such a wonderful knack for grouping things together in such a lovely way. I inherited some random plates recently and until I find a place for them they are stacked on the sideboard. I do love those blue Ball jar covers. And your roses look beautiful!

I just love the pale pink and blue together, when combined with lace or hand crochet its amazing. Makes me feel so good too. Great display
