Last night I saw my first robin up in a tree behind my house.  I saw one this morning too.  That surely means spring is on it's way - right?  This photo is actually a coffee
set from our private label china at
the store:

This means it is time to celebrate and pull out some pansy table setting pieces and have some pansy fun.

My fondness for vintage doilies is never more pronounced than in the springtime.  

I am sharing a little trivet I recently
 acquired while antiquing:

These sweet hankies can
be used as napkins:

These dessert plates are Crown Dorset.  I used to sell them years ago and I will tell you that Crown Dorset pieces are always exceptional and more embellished with
gold paint.

I have to tell you that it is a beautiful spring day in Colorado.  I really feel guilty saying that as I saw photos of the snow that Carolyn and Sandi received on Prince Edward Island.  

Regardless of the weather, I hope your weekend is lovely!

  5. You have the most extensive pansy collection of anyone Bernideen. The gorgeous linens compliment the china nicely and the sun coming through the window is bringing spring to you.
