This is the inspiration for this teatime today. I have 2 of these sweet cups
and saucers from my grandmother's home. They are so dainty with their
handpainted flowers and the sweet scallop edge in blue. But, it was the aqua
leaves inside the cup that gave me the idea for a tablecloth.
I dug through my vintage table cloths and found this beautiful square in
gorgeous aqua. It is linen and has 4 matching napkins. The edge of it is
also scalloped but I forgot to take a picture of it.
I set the table in front of the living room window with the morning sun shining
in on this hot day. This is a morning tea and there is a beachy theme too.
Do you see the napkin ring? It is a part of a shell, all shiny and beautiful.
The bottom of the cup. Foley China.
Let's look at some old family photos while we enjoy our tea.
I like to pretend I am in this place ~ St. Andrews by-the-Sea. This little pillow is handstitched
and has pine and other needles inside that smell like the woods. The vintage post card is the
old windmill at the historic Van Horne estate on Minister's Island near St. Andrews.
