Come early for brunch - to celebrate SPRING

I love brunches - sometimes I keep the table set just to view during the day. I love the three Homer Laughlin simple white plates with the green on the left side. Not much planning was utilized for this simple brunch post. All I needed to add was the fruit in the small yellow cups I posted a few weeks ago. I would not use these for candle, but a couple or three of pretty bite sized choice fruits would look so appealing. I was fortunate to find six of the neat tea short mugs with names of tea spelled all around the rim. These are made in Indonesia. How sweet is that? My cousin Patty gave me the two attractive candles featured. They are Fitz & Floyd - lucky me!! The small brown teapot I've owned for over thirty years. It's my favorite and if you'll stop by sometimes, we can sit here and enjoy a spot of tea. The two simple white soft linen napkins, edged in green have been used by me for over forty years. Some things NEVER wear out. My son saw them a while back while eating with us and he could not believe I was still using the napkins. People that know me and visit at meal time can attest to the fact that I NEVER use paper napkins. The cute rabbit that stopped in to eat with us I found at DAV and decided that he needed a home and today is making his debut to spring celebrations.


  1. What a pretty table with all of the lovely green accessories! I love your plates and the yellow 'fruit dishes'. Just perfect! And I'd love to own those Fitz and Floyd candles!!

    I like that you use real napkins ever day. That should always be the custom!
