Cottage Style Brown

Hello Dear Friends, This month the color is brown in honor of autumn and fall. What lovely shades are ahead for us this month.
I will start off with this cheese box, which I painted a few years back. I treasure this box and think it brings a flavor of the past into today's life.

We live in an old Spanish style house and when I saw this painting just had to have it cause thought it went so well here. Have another one a different style but same idea. It's like going down a street in Spain, have never been there but have seen pictures.

Now this brown glass duck belonged to my Godmother and it's vintage. Actually had a pair but clumsy me broke the other one. I was so upset at myself.

We have had this vintage clock for many years. It still chimes on the half hour and the hour. Hope it continues to work so we can enjoy it for years to come.

This is my husband's favorite candy. It's from Trader Joe and it's chocolate covered cranberries. I cannot eat chocolate, so its all for him, he says...Yea!

Hope you have enjoyed the items that I have in brown, well do have a few more, but for now this is enough. Please visit the other gals that are also showing their browns.

Violets and Pansies Tea Cups

Welcome to my blog for Tea Cup Tuesday. Today I was in a lavender/purple mode and decided to show you some of my work that I have done in these colors. I do the decal work and fire them in my kiln. Hope you enjoy them.
This set with a sweet kitty and violets is fine china Sango, made in Japan. I love cats and have done many sets with kitties.

Just lovely violets on this pretty set. It's Lynns fine china from China.

These are two sweet little cherubs surrounded by larger violets. No special maker on this set just a china cup and saucer.

Gorgeous pansies on this Mikasa fine china, Japan set with silver rim. All of these sets have the design on front and back or all around. Also made a tea bag holder and a little heart that could be used for candy.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a little visit, I so enjoy having you here for tea. Looking forward to our next tea party with all my blogging friends. Wishing all of you a wonderful week as we head into the fall season.

The Vintage Marketplace

Friday my daughter Julie and I went to the The Vintage Marketplace. What a memorable
experience that was. We had a wonderful time and bought many beautiful things, for our selfs and for gifts. The day was perfect with blue skies, as you can see by the photos. Julie had made delicious sandwiches for our lunch, so we stopped shopping so we could eat and right back to shopping. Hope we can go back again sometime.
Christie Repasy had a beautiful booth, hopefully next time I can get one of her paintings. The reason I didn't get one this time is because I couldn't decide on which one to get, all are so lovely and to see them up close in person is magical.

This booth belongs to a special friend of mine, Lexa Finley, a very talented lady.

Just look at all the interesting booths.

Handmade items, collectibles and antiques.

This is my daughter Julie, my youngest.

If you live in California and ever have the opportunity of going to one of her showings, please do so. I guarantee you will have a wonderful time that you will not soon forget.

$5.00 Tea Cup

Hello every one and welcome to another Tea Cup Tuesday. Today I will be showing you
a pretty cup and saucer that I bought at a flea market for only $5.
I am always looking for pretty roses and think this one is especially nice.
As you can see here my little lady Emily, in her tea dress and hat, is ready for her cup of tea so she will be joining us today for this tea party with Martha.

Charming roses and gilding trim.

Thank you so much for visiting Emily and I for tea today, hope to see you again at the next tea party. It's always so pleasant to enjoy a cup of tea but it's especially wonderful when you enjoy it with friends like you.
