getting ready for Tablescape Thursday
Getting ready for tablescape Thursday with Susan (click on her name on Thursday to see others who are displaying much more marvelous tablescapes!) . I could have done the above scape.
Do you all know what the above thing is???? Down here in the South we call it a popcorn tree or Chinese Tallow. It turns a beautiful yellow and orange in the Fall and produces these popcorn looking things. Unfortunately it can spread like wildfire!
I could have used my December cup in anticipation of what is coming!! I could have used a nice old vintage napkin and doiley too.
Notice the old glass bottle says snow on it. I got it back in the 70's when I drank milk from it in Japan. The other side is written in Japanese. I thought snow was kind of cool for holding something that was white like snow.
But, naw (translation= nope=no), I was watching a Clemson football game this Saturday instead. ..AND AND I don't mind saying that they slaughtered North Carolina!! But I want to say that I love this teapot. I got it last year from QVC. The only negitive is that you can't put boiling water in it. It has to be 200 degrees or less. I have gotten used to that......AND the tea cup from Rosanna's had become one of my favorites. HOWEVER I chipped it!! I dropped another cup on it yesterday!! I can turn it around and sip from the other side , I guess.
Bishop Boots , the cat, was watching me , watching Clemson. (Oh, of course I was doing a little bit of blogging--multi-tasking , ya know?) Oh and did I say, it is peppermint tea?)
What I love about this teapot is the insert it has for loose tea (below)
All in all it was a splendid day.
And my roses are in agreement ;-)
