Spring has arrived here, at least on most days! Today the sun is warm and cheery but the wind is still nippy. Too chilly to garden but that extreme freshness gave me lots of pep, making today a great day for Spring cleaning, inside.
So I looked over my list of things to do. It will feel so satisfying to put a check mark beside a few finished projects. Are you finished yet?
Let's put in a good morning of finishing some tasks and meet for tea, later.
I will set the table.............
The creamer was a lonely piece, maybe in its past life it was a small vase. I pressed it into service today because it brings the colours of the china together. I found a single white sugar, at the thrift store for $.79.
To add height, I used a simple glass pedestal to raise the seashell shaped serving dish.
TOMINAGA ORIGINAL, Japan
Colclough, Product of RIDGEWAY POTTERIES LTD, England
Phoenix China, T F and SONS LTD, England
Silver Plate, Queen Mary, BIRKS
Heart shaped dish with floral butter pats
For a special touch, I pressed soft butter into the candy molds and placed in freezer over night. They released easily into the dish. Ready to spread on warm banana bread, fresh from the oven.
Next time I will try finely grated orange peel for added flavour and colour. Remember to keep it, K*I*S*S. Keeping it Simple and Stylish. Your style of course. Any suggestions for another flavour?
