I sent this tea picture + the following 2 to the delightfully new Daphne's Diary English Magazine as per request.  This tea cup was from a favorite set of dishes used in the past. The cheerful little "Tea Cosy" and fabric flowers add a friendly touch to the morning tea table.

 The Currier & Ives tea cup and saucer from my everyday dishes is filled with hot Earl Grey tea . The dishes were a promotional item at a grocery store years ago. I think the  Folk Art Chickens and vintage linens add a cozy look to the tea table

Tea is served more formally in a  "Historic America" cup and saucer from our "good dishes" left to us in my husband's Mother's will. I made the little arrangement of button flowers years ago.

I looked at this basket quilt block one day and decided it could be so much cuter filled with flowers. So that's what happened!

It has become one of my favorite pillows! Here it is on on of my (sorry) dusty kitchen shelves).

"Mr Cool" eating his favorite breakfast- scrambled eggs. We are caring for great grandson Eli while Momma works until she can get a place and childcare set up. She lives in our Cottage up the drive so they are here most of the time. He brings a lot of joy into our lives even though it keeps us busier than we would like. I invite you to  also visit my 2nd blog and Marlynne Snare Folk Artist on facebook
