Making progress....


I have to admit Ive been slacking a little....so today I dug in again.....
Here is our little courtyard by our front door...just got it fixed up..Hubby bought me the fountain..love the sound of water!

How cute is this little old vintage tricycle my sister got Stella at the Rose Bowl swap meet!!!!


So today I unpacked 6 boxes of dishes.....

these are our every day dishes......I unpacked them when we first moved in..but I have oh so many other dishes...

I have HUGE collection of fireking Jadite...I found it all at a yard sale years and years ago...30 bucks for a big box full!!!!

and tea cups are another thing I collected...about 15 years ago...I used to LOVE to have tea parties...

Some of these are so beautiful...they have been packed away for YEARS...thinking maybe I should put them in a cupboard so I can admire them when I want to? or have a tea party?

Anyone for tea?

Tea sounds great in those beautiful cups. All of your dishes are so pretty, but I love the Jadite.

The courtyard looks so peaceful and I am sure the sound of the water makes it even more so.

GREAT tricycle!!!

Your courtyard looks beautiful!!! The sound of water is so comforting!! Love the red table in what I assume is your entry way. And I too am a nut for dishes. I used to have oodles of tea cups and saucers, and one day on a whim, sold them all in a garage sale for pennies! What a fool, huh! Now I have collected a few again, thinking that a tea party with my little grands will be so fun to have soon. Love your jadite!!! So fun!!

Debbie,
I love tea cups- I have some from my grandmother- they remind of a time we would have tea together. She so loved dishes.
I had not seen Jadite but yours is beautiful.
Your new home is coming along so nicely- it really is beautiful.
Regards,
Anna
