Summer at Thistle Creek

I must admit that Summer is not my favorite season, Autumn wins that title, but there are many joys that only Summer can bring.

The juicy goodness of  a trio of fresh berries.  (After taking the picture, I added a dollup of organic peach yogurt and savoured the moment.)

 Setting the table with reds -- roses, cherries, and plaids...

white -- vintage ironstone...

and blue -- cobalt blue stemware and flatware and a little yellow crochet doily for a sweet country  cottage accent...I'm ready for a 4th of July lunch.

Right outside my kitchen window a favorite flower thrives and begins its colour show.

Summer is here but it goes by quickly so do take time to enjoy those lazy summer afternoons when the days are long and the fireflys sparkle in the night.  Take a little longer to finish your lemonade, your iced tea, your mint julep...It's Summertime.

Thanks for visiting with me today...I'm glad you stopped by.

Teapots and Towels

Preparing tea in a pretty teapot makes taking tea special and more enjoyable.  I see these lovely little gems so often but realistically, I have to reign in my desire to purchase each and every one that catches my eye.  Today I thought I'd share with you a few that did make it home with me.  In my small collection I have favorites but here are the three that I currently have out to enjoy.

Suddenly I feel like having a cup of tea...I wonder why :-)

Before I go, I'd like to follow-up with an update from my last post where I shared the bath towels that were on my loom.  They're finished and I'm so pleased with how they turned out.  They're very fluffly, thirsty towels and I'm enjoying using them. I've already started dressing my loom to weave another set.

I'm glad you stopped by, I really appreciate your visits.  Have a great day.
