Good Morning!!!

Good Morning from the high mountain valleys of Colorado! I feel so blessed to say that I live in the Rocky Mountains, especially at this time of the year. Mornings are so peaceful, we never hear the sounds of the city here. Just the birds singing and a few occasional dogs. One of the things we are blessed in abundance with is wind. So early morning is the perfect time to sit on the deck and enjoy breakfast while the sun comes up!

I've been shopping (again) and found some cute little plates at Home Goods. I thought that the purple cloth I used at Easter would be perfect. I don't think you can see the pattern very well from my pictures, but it is from Johnson Bros. "Summer Chintz". I was excited to learn that this pattern is still available, so guess what I'm getting for my birthday! I used my white plates from Wal-Mart "Summer Rose" pattern and a deeper lilace color napkin that I got from Home Goods.

I've had the crystal for several years. My in-laws knew the owners of the local jewelry store that also carried china, crystal and silver. When they retired and sold their business, my in-laws bought almost everything that they had in the store. I recieved these goblets from that purchase. They are Franciscan "Caberet". Some of them still have the label on them. I have two sizes in my cabinet. Some of you commented on my stemware when I posted at "The Tablescaper" Where do you keep it all? post.

I've had the fruit cups(?) for many years. My boys loved pudding in them, but for today I think that berries would be perfect. The osteopermums are going in pots today. I think they are bright and cheery and perfect for a breakfast table.

Thanks so much again Susan, for hosting this event. I look forward to seeing everybody's creative and beautiful tables. I appreciate all of your comments and being able to share with you. Have a wonderful day!


  1. Very nice. Cheerful and refreshing. What a great way to start a day - doesn't get better than that does it.

  2. Sharon, I love the lilac and the pink together! The napkins really bring out that lilac flower in the china -- so pretty! And setting an outdoor table sounds perfect in your climate -- it's too hot and muggy here this week.

  3. Very pretty dishes, love the lavender and pink together.
