Tea with My colors makes Me swoon. Thrifting and crafting all the days long :)

OOHHH Lavender I'm not safe around You  <3. A sweet glass bowl I found a day ago at Home Goods.I'm not safe at Home Goods either or any store that I find  lavender calling My name.

To Me black, white,and any shade of purple send Me swooning.

You should have seen how fast I put this set in My cart.After My blissful finds at Home Goods, I jumped on over to Goodwill feeling lucky.
Gee! There it was a beauty of a curtain- black and white toile just waiting for Me-it wanted to be a tablecloth,so I must let it.
So I got up this morning before it was light to put the new goodies out for Me to enjoy.

Peanut butter toast....

and coffee pretending to be tea.O.k. yes, I do let coffee pretend to be tea  :  / 
Pretty little sweet gifts that mean so much to Me. A card in the mail from Linda :) so We can remember eachother for teatime.

Amazing ATC from Mercedes

Now for My latest half done creation.I broke the mirror in the middle-now what?I hate to go out and buy another.I was going to put moss around the mirror that leads Me to My Shire.I love portholes to dreamy places, You might already know.
Maybe I should paint or draw My shire to put in the porthole.I must look in My stash to see what I can find.First I'll go for a swim.Beautiful warm day here at Coffeeberry Cottage in Southern Ca. Hugs-Denise      Joining Sandi at Rose Chinz Cottage for tea

You have some lovely new treasures, Denise. And what a great idea to use the toile curtain as a tablecloth! Congratulations. Susan

Oh Auntie Denise, swimming? It's too cold in the mountains, I'm not a member of the Polar Bear Club.

Your purchases are bee-u-tee-ful.

Heaps of Hugs

I am ready to come by tea... only a couple of thousand miles separate us... although surely quite a bit less in this cyber world. I too love Lavender, so much so I named my antique shop Lavender and Old Lace.
Wish you could stop in for a visit.

Denise said...

I love lavender, purple, and pink.

The lavender bowl was a great find, very pretty!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Good morning Denise,
Your lavender bowl is really pretty and I love toile anything! Enjoy your warm day. It's bone chilling cold here on the Island. Thanks for sharing and coming to tea.


Patti said...

Oh what pretty plates! I am very impressed that you set the table for yourself and enjoyed peanut butter toast!

Hi Denise,

Just wanted to say thank you for your kind comment on my blog! Love your finds. Especially the bowl. Such a pretty shape and colour!

Happy week ahead!

What beautiful things you found to buy Denise. Bet that peanut butter tasted all the better for being served up on such a lovely plate. I'm a big lavender fan too - colour and fragrance.

Thanks for coming to look at my desk today too xx

My computer was slow loading up and I couldn't wait to see all your pictures! Oh, Home Goods is a dangerous place for me! I'm kind of scared to go through the door! Thanks for showing my card...I was just looking at the wonderful goodie you sent me and the quilt block. I need to do something special with it. So sweet of you my friend.
Much love,

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
