I thought I would do my part to encourage
spring by getting out all my violet bone
 china pieces and trying
to encourage things.

For one thing I like to go walk around
my neighborhood every day and this
winter hasn't been too good for that

I was able to get out twice this week and
did notice some bulbs just barely 
popping up in various yards including
my own.

I won't be wearing these
on my feet.  I hope you
have had a lovely day
and ready for your new week!


  1. Its so nice that you have that beautiful hutch to display your special pieces of china; and that you can change them for special occasions, holidays and seasonal. Seeing the violets do remind one that Spring has arrived.

  2. Love, love violet teaware. Also love that bottom/center transferware cup.

  3. Your beautiful violet themed pieces are lovely, Bernideen. Something so delicate, but yet regal about violets. The best I can do is grow Africian violets.

  4. Not a very good winter for many and don't we all miss going outside for
    those walks! I especially like the look of your square tea cup!
    Lets hope for a kind Spring and daffodils soon.

  5. Such a lovely collection of violet adorning teaware! We have had a very mild winter, so I'm hoping the violets will soon appear. Think spring!

  6. Your violet collection is so pretty, Bernideen, and it's our birth month flower. I love how you change out your hutch with seasonal treasures.


  7. I'm loving those pretty paper shoes you made.Your violet dishes are all lovely

  8. Your violet collection is lovely! I adore sweet little violets. I have a few wild ones that come up in my garden and I just let them be and hope they return each spring.

  9. I love your hutch and it's the perfect place to showcase your seasonal china. Violets are so pretty. I brought mine out for tea this week too because the February teacups will be going back in the cabinet in a couple of days. Your paper slippers are very sweet hanging on your hutch. We are expecting a snow storm this afternoon so I'm making my visits now, just in case. Enjoy the rest of February, and a Happy belated Birthday, Bernideen!

  10. So beautiful, Bernideen! This has inspired me to get out my mother's violet teapot and my grandmother's violet teacup and plate when I have tea and Devonshire Splits this afternoon.

  11. What a beautiful display and delight to the eyes. You arranged them well. I think I have some of those pieces. I love the music slippers!
