The Cottage Party today featured a lot of snowy cottages - but we have no snow - though we do have winter - or what passes for winter here in the very western Pacific Northwest - rain, clouds, a bit of sunshine now and then, which we call sun breaks, chilly temperatures but not cold - highs in the 40 and low 50s - so generally we don't have snow - and we aren't complaining - you never have to shovel rain.
But I do decorate for winter - and my centerpiece this year consists of pine cones, candles, silver glitter, an aluminum tray and a new tea set.
A new tea set?
But you said you weren't buying any more thrift store dishes until at least June, didn't you say that?
Well, yes, I did say that - but Don bought them, and one just can't refuse a gift, can one?
I didn't think so.
A child size tea set - with pine cones. And it matches my set of pine cone dishes too - perfect. Add some pine cones some candles and a pretty tray - and you have a perfect centerpiece for the winter
There are six cups and saucers - cream and sugar and teapot. All is in perfect condition and looks like it never has been used.
It just makes me smile.
