Laurie, this is a new little nook I've not seen. What a comfy spot to relax and enjoy tea with you. Your newly acquired pieces of Q are right at home. And the little sugar and creamer is wonderful with their pear and apple shapes. Like Debbie, I think I'll just stay and sit a time to enjoy the moment. ~ Sarah

Hello there sweet lady,

This is just the most charming and cozy teatime vignette I've ever seen and in such a warm and welcoming nook!~ Simply delightful!

I wish that I could 'sit down with you right now and enjoy some yummy petite fours, fragrant, freshly brewed tea and delightful coversation' my dear!..,

Thanks so much for joining in with my 32nd,'Tuesday Tea For Two' as well as my 23rd, 'Wednesday Tea For Me And Thee' once again this week!..,

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

So before you wrote, I knew it was quimper! I am gettin smarter, ya think??

bj said...

O, QUIMPER is one of my favorite things and I have not one piece of it. This is all so beautiful.
I LOVE your pretty kitchen.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That is just so pretty and charming!

Sue said...

Like BJ, I love Quimper but don't have a single piece. I first saw it in a client's house a few years back and fell in love with it- I need to check on E-bay for some.
All of your pieces are just beautiful. And the vase is so unique. I sure would enjoy having a cup of tea with you!
hugs, Sue

Hello Laurie,

Oh how I wish I was invited personally to this tea. So cozy and welcoming. I sure love cozy! I have a bench in my kitchen too that is just the perfect spot to sit back and relax and enjoy a cuppa'. Thanks for making us all feel so welcome!

Sonny G said...

You always have the most amazing dish sets.. This one has a sense of whimsey that I just adore. I so want to have a more frenchy interior and though you and many other bloggers show great examples, I cant seem to make it happen here.. I see no other alternative but you to all climb on a tour bus and come here and just decor your little heart out..OK:) see ya soon...

What a cozy little nook. I would love to have tea with you in a Quimper cup..which I leaned about from you!
I remember the first post I ever read of yours where you went through the supermarket and wrote a hilarious poem! You have to rerun that one! :)

This is just sooooo charming. First of all to have such a spot in your kitchen is wonderful, but then to have it all arranged as beautifully as you have, is so charming and welcoming.
