Pine Cone Party

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.

What a charming tea set, perfect for a winter display. Your husband has a good eye! I'm still wishing for some snow, but it's not likely at this point. Sigh.

That's a really pretty centrepiece - wintery without being Christmassy.

Well I love teasets and I love pine cones, so it would probably come home with me as well! What a nicely trained honey! Lol! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

I love the French Saxon PINECONE which is what your set looks like . I bid on a couple sets on EBay but they went MUCH higher than I wanted to bid. Much drooling and sighing over your lovely tea set. Happy Winter!
