Add a Little Sunshine

Today was a beautiful day; there was sunshine, warm temperatures, and open doors and windows that welcomed the songs of the birds into the house.  Spring is in the air!

Time for me to brighten things up around here.  Think I'll start with  the breakfast area.


So cheerful to come downstairs in morning to a sunny kitchen and see a polkadot teapot waiting to be warmed for a favorite loose tea.

Now to brighten up the cupboard.



      I chose Nikko's Blue Peony.  Such a sweet pattern with it's blue and yellow flowers and pale blue dots.

Now that I've taken care of those two areas, I think I'll set a table just for me and my tea.  I'm not being selfish, it will be my treat after getting everyone out of the door in the morning.  My time to sit for a minute before my day starts in earnest.  Remember, you don't have to wait for company to enjoy your dishes.



Ahhh, I can't wait till morning :-)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope your day was a good one and I wish for you a great day tomorrow filled with many blessings.

I'm sharing this with Tea Time Tuesday, Your Cozy Home Party, Home Sweet Home, White Wednesday
and A Return to Loveliness.

Hello Lady Vee,
Your polka dot teapot is as cute as can be and your cabinet looks nice filled with your lovely china. You have set a charming table and tea for one is as special as tea for two or more. I'm so glad you've joined me today. Thank you and have a delightful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Thanks for your visit!

The lighter china and adorable vignette you made are perfect for lighting up your room. Polka dogs instantly bring a smile to my face, so the teapot caught my eye, but being a pink (and green!) girl, the little bird beside it is very cute too.

Thanks for sharing your great post at my party this week.

Hi Vee, May I come to tea. Your pictures make your home look so inviting. Of course I love your tea towel and tea pot. To sit and enjoy looking out the window. We have been warm enough that you could sit on the deck and enjoy a cup of tea. Have a great weekend. Take care Your Missouri Friend.
