Purple Pansies and Violets, Roses and Tulips

Call me old-fashioned but I believe that...enjoying the simple things in life, being thankful and content with what you have will give you a sense of well being, peace and joy. ~ unknown

Good morning dear friends! It's the last week of February and I thought I should bring out my Purple Pansies teapot and my RA Violets teacups for the month of February. My roses from Valentine's Day are still doing well and Hubby brought home some pretty tulips so I have set everything out on the table in the front room. 

My crocheted tablecloth is on the table and I especially like it this time of year because it looks like it has snowflakes crocheted in it.

My dear son fell on the ice on Valentine's Day and he has a bad concussion so I made some chocolate chip muffins and we took them over to him. I knew the boys could all enjoy them. The next day I made another batch of muffins because my hubby likes them too. So, we will have some muffins with our cuppa today.

I have two of these February Violet teacups. One was from my hubby's aunt and the other belonged to his mother. I treasure them both especially now that both ladies have passed.

The Purple Pansies teapot usually only comes out in February as do the teacups so I'll enjoy them for a few more days.

When we sip tea, we are on our way to serenity. ~

The violets and the tulips remind me that Spring is on the way! Although we are still having snow storms {in fact, we're having a storm today} and there is a lot of ice around, we know Spring is only three and a half weeks away. I will be happy when it arrives. It has been a long winter with snow arriving in November and never leaving.

I know two of my blogger friends celebrate a birthday this month. Happy Birthday,
Bernideen and Kitty

Have a wonderful week everyone, and prayers for my son would be appreciated. Thank you and the Lord bless you!
