Loving Blue...

Do you Love the color Blue?  I do, I love love it... 
I have always loved Blue and White...
Helo everyone. I hope you are all doing well.  The Day before yesterday I felt kind of lousy sad missing Mama.. I felt myself falling into 
a depression mode.  And I got up off the couch and told myself O no your not..
Jumped into the shower and got dressed fixed my make-up and my hair and off I went...
Sometimes it's very hard because of my Panic disorder to just jump and go..
But I prayed to God and asked him to help..
and Off I drove to Love Joy's 
My favorite place in the world..
So this is one of the things that I found.. I have been wanting a Tea cozy forever
but just couldn't find the right one for me.. I love Roses But wasn't looking for that either... 
this is the perfect one for me..
Don't get me wrong I want some other's but this was waiting for me as the saying goes..
Minus the tea cup... I found these soup bowls and dinner plates and there were some bread plates..
they are China from Brazil..  Since there are no teacups, I think these will work. or I just recently purchased
some white with gold as well so I think either one will do..
They are really nice in my opinion.  A soft light Blue with Rose Buds.  with the Touch of Gold 
I think that they are elegant..
Some of my photos are a bit dark there was not any good light today the weather has been so deary it's just crazy..
Barely any Sun and if there is it's not till late afternoon and it's mixed with clouds..

The light Blue teacups I have saucers to match them
they are called Delphite.  I fell in love with the color
I love that Blue color a lot..

The star dishes are by Greengate.. This is the  regular table setting.  I made the one set so 
that I can share the new china plates..
I found these shakers in Mama's basement.. with the tiny tray.. so cute 
They were inside a box wrapped in a brown bag like someone had bought them 
and never used them.. They were just a bit dusty...
The cloche I found a long time ago.. It's a heavy glass.  I was thinking it might have been used
for cheese .. but just the same It works for over the plant which is doing well..
I have a beautiful  large cloche I found years ago, and of course Dad's truck. I miss that it was always like
a treasure hunt for sure... those surely were the days.. My Dad would call in 
and say get ready I got some good stuff..and I go outside when he came and climbed into that 
large dump truck and start digging for all the surprises
my mini African Violet... I'm waiting for some blooms..

Early this morning In the Garden:
Sweet sweetpeas coming

The early morning dew.. 

Seeds I love seed packets when they are pretty...
I planted some Green beans that are different colors.. it was 7 am.. couldn't sleep no more but there was 
a light mist in the air.. but It still was nice..

I also planted Green Bean seeds in little pots in here this morning but I forgot to take a photo..
I love this little house It gives your plants a head start so the snails don't eat them up.. and this 
year seems I have a ton of ugly snails and slugs yuk.. 

Silly Raccoon's, I found these brand new in the basement at Mama's house.  I guess 
she had ordered them and put them down there..
Sweet Angel...

The wind blew the tiny seeds and they landed in the crack...
Have a beautiful weekend
tomorrow is cleaning day for me..
with love...

Strawberry Teapot...

Hello Good Monday Morning
It's another dreary day here in San Francisco...
The day where you should be home baking some goodies for your afternoon tea
But I'm still at my Mama's house.  Thinking that maybe I should do a bit of 
cleaning in the room that has all the stuff that we, well I decided to 
keep.  So probably after my post
I will go and clean up a bit and go through some of the boxes to decide what to keep
and what not to keep.
I have been emptying out the kitchen drawers.  Mama kept every little screw rubber band
that came her way....
I have two little junk drawers only at home.  Mama has four large ones.. 
Here is my Strawberry teapot.. I just love this it's bright and cheery..
I purchased it a couple months back..
I don't have any teacups yet to go with it and I haven't been able
to find any for it.. It's a off white almost light beige color with the brightest 
strawberries ever and green leaves and White blooms.. 
I just have my red crocheted teacup which looks pretty good with it..
I'm not sure what teacups I should look for but I'm sure when I see it or them I will 
I'm very happy with this teapot I wish I could have gotten some better
photos sometimes the color just doesn't do it justice through
the photos.  Perhaps I should have went outside..
Well I suppose it's time to start cleaning have to go back home tonight...
Regular day starts back tomorrow...
Have a most wonderful new week
with love
