Goodbye February!

Hello friends! Before we bid the month of February good-bye, I thought I should share my violet and pansy inspired china.

Almost everything on the table was gifted to me. The sun was flooding the room so I had to play with the pictures a bit.

The Royal Albert flower of the month cup and saucer was from my hubby's aunt.

These three darling embossed plates were made in England and were a birthday present as well as the iridescent teacup 

and the little handled plate. 

All these pieces are hand painted and were gifted to me in January for my birthday by a dear friend. The plates are very small and would be perfect to serve candies or tiny cookies. Aren't they pretty?

I know all you lavender loving ladies can appreciate them. Also my friends who celebrated a birthday this month; Bernideen, Kitty, and Judith; Happy Birthday!! I know there are many more February birthdays out there but I'm not sure who you are. I hope it was a month of blessing for all of you.

I had some pretty purple tulips for this table but they faded quickly because I waited too long to take the pictures.

Tomorrow is the first of March and I am looking forward to Spring which is right around the corner. Spring is my favourite season although Summer is a close second. Yes, I'm a warm weather girl. My body doesn't like the cool temperatures very much.

In the month of March I can see many changes taking place. The snow starts to melt and any that falls doesn't stick around. The sun is warmer so the rivers begin to free themselves of the ice and snow. The winter coats the gold finches wear all winter begin to turn a bright yellow. That for me is always a lovely sight. What do you love most about Spring?

Thank you for keeping me company today and enjoy the new month that is upon us. 

I'm so thankful for friendship. It beautifies life so much. ~ LM Montgomery - Anne of Avonlea
