March seems to be moving right along!

This winter I have kept busy doing various
 projects.  I am sharing this little ornament
 tag above that is Tasha Tudor's art
which I have enjoyed using to do some crafts!

Please enjoy a cup of tea this morning!

As you can see there are leaves appearing 
on the trees
and bushes over in the woods.
I brought in some of pussy willow
 branches to enjoy:

My heart is stirred for all the folks in
the north east enduring snow now!
I saw a few flakes earlier but they
melted in the air.

Have you been keeping busy this winter
trying to "get through"?

What a pretty tea you've shared, as you look at your window, Bernideen. I love all your teacups, teapot, and those pretty plates on the window ledge. Also, Your architectural window makes such a pretty statement, along with the pussy willow filled vase and the cute birdie. I'm glad that you've enjoyed making those pretty decoupaged pieces. Thanks for hosting your gentle party.

As always, I've enjoyed my visit to your tea today. That view out your back window is so lovely. Makes me miss the woods behind our last house. Thanks for hosting this lovely party each week.

Hello Bernideen,

I have missed looking at your beautiful photos and vintage china. You have one of the most amazing vintage china collections I have ever seen.

It is always such a pleasure to visit your blog. I am inspired each time I look at one of your pretty tea cups. The delicate lilac one is my favorite today. And I do agree, the table set right by your window is stunning.

Warm regards,

I never tire of seeing your pretty violet tea sets! We had a last blast of winter earlier this week and received over 20 cm of snow. Bring on spring! Thank you for hosting and Happy Ides of March!

Such sweet works of art Bernideen! And I like your violets, do I see the plate I gave you in the window? winks
Hope you have had a good day!

You made a pretty tag in the first photo Bernideen and as always the tea table is welcoming. I was surprised to see no snow outside your window; we're still getting it.
I'm looking forward to spring and getting out in the garden, winter is long in Ontario.

I read your post really early this morning before I took off to babysit Otto. I couldn't remember if I posted a comment and guess I didn't! I love your Tasha creations. How very fun. You are so creative and do such a lovely job. SOOOO fun.

Bernideen, I'm so glad I had this visit to make this morning (day 2 of 3 days of misery - getting a new roof is *very* loud!) to your lovely tea party. Thank you for hosting.

Hello Bernideen, Your inviting photos make me want to sit right down and enjoy a cup of tea! I love the Tasha Tudor tag. I have several of her books and fell in love with her artwork many years ago. Thank you for always inspiring us with your lovely tea settings. Kimber
