Helo there dearest, welcome to my blog. The best place for me to express what I love most. All my love of vintage things. I mostly love the Victorian era as well as things from the fifties.. I love to cook and bake and spend time with my family. I thought and believed I loved Autumn the most, but I've come to find each special thing about each season, to find the beauty in it... And through blogging I have found those things... I have surrounded myself with all the things that I love... Victorian depression glass, teapots and cups linens and lace... I also crochet vintage doilies as well... I hope that you enjoy each and every visit with me... *HAPPY SPRING LOVES....*

I can't believe it....

     I guess it's our Indian summer...  I couldn't believe it, it was a gorgeous morning yesterday and I mean beautiful..  Absoloutly no wind warm just breath taking, finely...  And my garden was clean. I had spent Friday cleaning me and Isaiah did.  He said grandma, I always help you I help you in the garden I help you bake..  So cute..  He loves to bake..  And now he has to fall asleep in my bed..  Just has to he told me all the time always he wants to be with me..  Love it...  Theres no greater love to receive then the love of your grandchildren...  Anyways guess what I got to have a lovely quiet tea in the garden all by myself...  
    The sky was as blue as could be..  The birds were chirpping away. Children at a distance were making noises...  It was just grand...  I waited all summer and it was one thing or another that wouldn't let me have tea in the garden mostly weather...  But God gave the most wonderful  day yesterday...
              Sun but shade under my tree...
     Thats over in the next garden right from were I sit in mine....  Sweet purple tiny flowers all over the tree...

     I love ferns ever since I was like 12....

     The deep blue takes me always...  Hydrangeas....

               Under the tree...
     The lemons are still coming...
      Figs soon they will be ready...  There is a ton hanging into my garden...
     Teatime...  I used finally my Franciscan teapot...  Forever I admired this pattern.  My aunt had the whole set of dishes complete with everything..  I was young then and didn't know barely about patterns etc...nor dishes ...
     I set my tiny table...  I was so excited...
     Since it was about to be 11am I decided on a sandwhich instead of breakfast...
     I just used my teabag holder to put a few pickles in...  I happen to love pickles...
                 
            It is my favorite teabag holder...  I only have a few though...
     I only had a half sandwhich and tomatoes from the garden...

     The little sugar pot...  So cute..  The first piece I ever found was the creamer in perfect shape for about $1.49 while thrifting with mama...  Then later a teacup set ...  This I purchased online and the teapot to at really good prices..  


                      
     Finished my meal and im enjoying more tea....  Along with the beautiful weather...
     All done...  It is so beautiful. I just sat for a while enjoying much as I could before I had to take off to mamas house.  I need to go there to make a list of the ten items I'm having picked up for free.  The garbage co.  Said they needed to know what they were picking up..  I'm just so grateful they do this twice a year. I can have two free pick ups a year, also both of my pick ups can be done in the same day...   It will help a lot..  This was the most wonderful mornings I have spent in a long time, which I'm also grateful for...  I thank my heavenly Father and my lord Jesus for all that he has given me..  Thank him for all of you too and all your kind comments..  
                    Wishing you the most lovely day..  
                                      With love Janice

It's Fall yay...

     I don't know about you but I love Fall....  and yesterday was it's official arrival...  I woke up this morning loving the wonderful feeling of fall...  Feeling good with a positive attitude...  Even though my living room is in a state...  The shelf started coming off the wall, which I think I mentioned but I haven't been able to put it back.  It is just too hard these days doing it alone so I'm patiently awaiting for someone to help me.  Everyone is busy..  But anyways I told myself this morning everythings on hold..  I'm going to make tea...  In a lovely pot with a pretty teaset...  
     By now you should know my cabbage teapot, which I love, I use it a lot..  And it truly warms my heart and my thoughts...  So as I was sitting in the living room with my couch pushed away from the wall and a ton of things on the coffee table and most everywhere from the shelve...  I thought I haven't used my little new cottage teaset..  
     I think I'm in love with this set like the teapot...  It gives me a warm cozy feeling..  And fullfills a small little dream of having this little cozy cottage ...  And I can melt away even if it's for a few moments..  I believe for those of us who can't have certain things, I think we should still dream a little..
     The cottage scene is the loveliest...  Quaint little cottage with sweet garden flowers all about...  It makes Fall somehow feel even cozier...  
     Then I decided to use the large sugar bowl to put some plum tarte in...  I don't use sugar much these days..  .  So it worked perfect...

     It has that same sweet scene as the teacup set...

     Teatime is feeling so special this morning... Everyone is off out the door and it's just me and my tiny sweetpea chi...  Curled  up on the couch that is pushed out into the middle of the room. Surrounded by lovely things...  
     Tea is tasting so good and it is nothing fancy just some plain ole Lipton,,  with a pinch of sugar...  Wouldn't you agree, pretty teacups make it taste all the better...
     And the plum tarte is tasting especially well in the sugar bowl...   He he ... 
     What more could a girl ask for...  Thank you dear God for this special moment...  Make your own special moments.  It is important to have something special to yourself ladies...  
     


     Wishing you a special moment ..  May your day be bright and cheery ....  
                           With love, Janice .  ... . .
