Setting a tea table when I am half asleep…

tablescape thursday

I always have a little celebration when I fulfill a harsh quilt deadline before I jump right into the next deadline looming in the horizon, just to break the monotony of things. This time, I would like to celebrate the completion of one of my magazine quilts with my kind bloggy friends with a simple tea. But you must forgive me, as I am walking around half-asleep after several almost all-nighters. I did manage to get some wild roses to put in my Westerwald crock for a table centerpiece. The blossoms smell simply heavenly:

Oh, thanks for reminding me… some of you don’t drink tea and would prefer coffee. Let me get that coffeepot out just for you, and coffee mugs too:

Now, won’t you make yourself at home while I retrieve the napkins from the cabinet? I am sorry I didn’t get everything ready ahead of time…

I am glad to see that you are chatting with each other trading stories how you stumbled upon Ivory Spring. I am going back to the cabinet one more time to get some plates for our cookies.

Here is to bloggy friendships!

Thank you for popping by to visit. I am glad you spent some time with me as I relax for a little before tackling my next big challenge.

  1. Not only did you finish your quilt, you had time to share your beautiful dishes with us! Is that a Royal Worcester pattern? It’s so pretty. I have a few similar pieces, and I can’t recall the pattern name. Very pretty! I don’t mind that the cookies aren’t out there… I just love staring at your dishes! LOL!

    Love to you and Happy Tablescape Thursday…

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  2. Hi Wendy,

    I’m glad that you have finished your deadline. You definiately deserve a good cup of tea after all that work.

    It is such a pretty tea service isn’t it. My Sister has the teapot and sugar bowl and jug.

    I hope your next deadline isn’t looming to soon, so that you can relax for a little while. – Sandra.

  3. Congratulations on finishing the quilt. I absolutely love the china.
