 After doing a little "Tea In The 
Garden: with a Hollyhock theme,
I decided to do the same in the
dining area.

I used some purple transferware plates
and other pieces that were purple.

We continue to have lovely
weather and also some rain
coming our way.

I love this little topper with Hollyhocks
on it added to the center of my French
lace Alencon tablecloth.  As Dorcas
Lane might have said in 'Lark Rise to Candleford',
 "Linens are my only weakness".


  1. Love the bouquet in the middle of the dinning table. Surrounded by beautiful china and crystal.

  2. A beautiful centerpiece with your hollyhock flowers; they make a colorful display on your wonderful linens and lace covered dining table.

  3. Your table looks elegant and inviting! The hollyhocks are beautiful! Thank you!

  4. Bernideen, it all looks so lovely. Love the hollyhock runner. You are just amazing and make all things beautiful..xxoJudy

  5. You create the most beautiful table scenes. I love hollyhocks and your bouquet of them is gorgeous! Spring is such a wonderful time of year!
