It seems like a good day for cherry blossoms although the kiddos have been picking the actual cherries all weekend. The blossoms are on my china tea set which I have brought out to the table for the first time in a while.
A sweet bouquet of mixed roses from the garden sits in the center, and we have layered some pretty linens around it.
I have put an vintage applique dresser scarf over the tablecloth, and I am using the smaller doilies that match as tea napkins. I adore the darling morning glory motif that someone has expertly embroidered on it. The set was two dollars at the thrift store in perfect condition! Cheery as all get out with that damask raspberry colored border underneath. . . .
I always get asked about the china pattern when I show this tea set, so I have shown the maker's mark a little further down below. It's a vintage set that I have inherited, and have never seen another.
Seems like we are spending a lot of time on the patio these days!
I hope you are enjoying these last sweet days of May!
A happy week to you whatever you're up to!
