Little tea spoons I've collected over the years . . . on vacation and at tea shops. There are also several heirloom spoons in this collection.
One of these things is not like the other . . .
. . . the baby fork and the baby spoon to the left of it was a baptism gift to one of my children.
This was my great-grandmother's baby spoon.
It has a script "A" on the back for her last name Ames.
I have an arrangement of plates on the wall near my kitchen table that I switch out according to season. I was so happy to find six of these plates for a dollar each at a consignment store. They are perfect for my autumn/Thanksgiving arrangement.
There are three different designs, and although a couple of them are showing their age, I still love them.
Four of them are on the wall with a Limoges dinner plate and four of these plates from my husband's grandmother . . .
I think the olive greens of the two patterns go really well together.
I also found the white dishes below at the same consignment shop. Six dinner plates, six salad plates, and six coffee mugs. We are having overnight guests over both Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I thought these could supplement our every day white dishes since I only have service for eight. I have lots of vintage china that we will use for our holiday dinners, but these will work for breakfasts and sandwiches/snacks.
My youngest son will probably also appreciate having enough every day dishes on hand so that he doesn't have to hand his college buddies a frou-frou flowery plate to have snacks on during a football game!
I really didn't need the extra mugs, but they came with the set. Now they're my favorite, as they have a very comfortable handle.
I like the raised fruit detail on these. So I am having a "mugga" rather than a cuppa today. Is that a word?
With my tea I'm enjoying a little cupcake pulled from the freezer earlier today. Small blessings that make me happy.
Hope you're all staying warm!
