It's that time. The time of year I start thinking about beautiful linens, delicate china, chicken salad and scones!
It's such a natural ritual to have a spring tea...even my china cabinet seems to start beckoning me to open it up. My china is speaking. Can you hear it? "Let me out!!"
I just so happened to come upon the most fantastic blessing ever. My dear friend wanted to part with her beloved Lemoges china collection and she just happened to want me to have it! I've never even seen true Lemoges before....now look! I have tons! And isn't it beautiful?
Soooo delicate. It is so fine it's almost translucent. The chinaI already had is very beautiful....just not quite
the same. Here's a picture of my old set and new set side by side.
They work beautifully together, don't you think?
Oh, my linens are also in need of some loving use:)
Beautiful antique linens. ~~Swoon~~ I don't mind that they are totally imperfect. Some have stains, some even have holes in them from all the loving hands that have held them.
Yep, it's time. Who wants to come over for tea? How many places should I set? What's on the menu? Come on over sweet friends.......it's tea time!
I am a very happy wife of 32 years. A mother to three awesome sons and one beautiful daughter. I have homeschooled for 24+ years. I have a deep love for all things old. People, art, material things, lost crafts. I am a crazy lover of The Lord, always seeking to draw closer to Him.
My blog title came from my husband who started calling me Sunshine the day we met. Over the years the name was shortened to Shine and sometimes I wonder if he really even knows my given name!!! I am not an eloquent writer, not gifted that way as so many bloggers are....I just have a heart to share things with my friends and family that are far away yet so very dear to my heart<3.
