It all started with the Frederick Cooper lamp. It was an estate sale
find and if I told you what I paid for it you will scream!! It was $5.00, but
that price did not include the shade which was about $55.00. OK, still a bargain
in my book. I gathered a few of my blue and white pieces and then added
blue books, both old and new.
This is the first time I have used books at the breakfast table and I
really loved the change and the interest that books evoked in
this setting along with the blue and white.
As for this muffineer, I purchased it in England on one
of my buying trips when I had my store. Guess what,
it never made it to the store for someone to purchase.
It originates from Scotland, it is registered and it is from
the late 1700's. I adore it. It is filled with powdered sugar.
I had no flowers to work with this weekend and thought I would
use the Algerian Ivy stems that I was trying to root. I loved how
the green leaves interplayed with this vignette.
So simple, so interesting and such a nice change having a few
items that had been in cabinets, brought out into the open
and enjoyed. . . . . and my husband loved it too!
