Ready for St. Patrick’s Day
Today is Cuisine Kathleen's 7th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Roll & I just couldn't miss it,
even though I don't feel much like celebrating this year.
I've set a small table with my new Royal Tara tea set.
I have service for 6 in this delicately thin bone china, made in Galway, Ireland.
The flatware is new...a gift from my husband for our Valentine's Day anniversary.
He told me to pick out something I wanted & I've always wished I had some utensils with gold on them, to coordinate with all my gold banded dishes.
It is by Mikasa & is called "Cameo Gold".
I give Mary, who blogs at "Home is Where the Boat Is", full credit for telling me about it in THIS POST.
My daughter found two of these pretty cross-cut vases for me.
The cream pitcher & sugar bowl are beautifully shaped.
These pretty green water goblets were used on a different table for my family last weekend.
The tablescape wasn't anything special but I thought the glasses photographed beautifully.
Gotta have some matching candy, too!
I have this card from my sweet husband, sitting on the baker's rack.
He first signed it in 1988 & re-gifted it to me every year after that, dating it each time.
Such a cute gesture...my parents used to do the same thing.
I treasure all the cards he gave to me over the years & I'm so glad I kept most of them.
They have brought smiles & laughter along with a few tears to my days & have help me to feel like he is still here with me in spirit.
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House today & please go visit Cuisine Kathleen's party...always lots of fun to see all her GREEN.
