Tablescape Thursday!

Yum



Today's tablescape is breakfast for Bob and me one day soon.



The teacup in this picture was given to me by my Grandmother Holt. She collected teacups (we believe she had nearly 50 sets from all over the world) and I received four of the sets. This set is Queen Anne, made in England, and was another of the china pieces my grandfather brought back from England when he was stationed there during WWII.



You can see the small glasses that we also received with our goblets that we ordered from the soap box to be our wedding crystal. There is a water glass and a juice glass. The blue crocheted piece is actually from my mother in law Irene.



This last picture is of some eggs that I have collected. I handpainted several and some are just a few that I collected over time. Yes, I got much better with the handpainted eggs, then I quit. I get these spirts of doing things then feel like I need a different challenge! Anyone else like that?

    I love the eggs.
    I have just one but it was
    given to me when I was a pre-teen
    by a dear neighbor and I cherish it.

  6. You could almost (just only almost though)skip the gourmet breakfast with this beautiful setting. I've seen pictures of Bob's cooking, though, so I say go for it! Love the little blue glasses.

  16. It looks as if it will be a very pleasant setting for you and Bob one day soon...this weekend?

    Like you with your beautiful Easter eggs, I become interested in a a new thing and about the time that I'm getting pretty good with it, I've lost all interest.

  18. Good morning Terri! I agree with the other ladies that this table setting is very lovely. Simple, sweet, elegant. I love too that most of your things have a family history or story behind them. For me, that's awesome. Have a wonderful day sweetie!

  22. Terri...this is soooo lovely! And it's especially wonderful because it has so many family pieces and things you made. I love the teacups from you Grandmother and the crocheted centerpiece from your MIL. The eggs you painted are beautiful...that takes talent that I just don't have. I do the same thing...work really hard at something...then get a little bored and move on to another challeng...I don't think we are alone! :) Thanks for a great TT!
