My Great Find!

Today on my weekly visit to Winner's/Homesense (Canada's version of TJ Maxx) I found this sweet magazine holder for our office. It is perfect for our small space and the wainscoting matches the wood we used on the room when we remodeled it last year.
It safely holders some of my collection of Victoria & Tradition Home Magazines..keeping them handy when I sit in the sunbeam in my favorite chair and daydream..

I will need to get out my calligraphy pen and complete the labels so it has a finished look..I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and found some treasures of your own! Take care & thank you for stopping in today..

Tea how I love Thee..

Welcome my fellow tea lovers to my Tea Post..

Today I am featuring two tea sets made in England...Tuscan Fine English Bone China. The first Cup & plate are adorned with vibrant yellow & green flowers.

This second set is a softer pattern of pinks, blues & yellows..

I am using a vintage fabric as my tablecloth the floral pattern is so vivid with beautiful roses and other flowers.

My charming little candle sticks are ceramic I think and the marking is one I really should investigate. iiii with an N under the iiii

Any help would be greatly crude mark is a rough idea of what the mark

Thank you for stopping in...

Thank you to the following Ladies for hosting these wonderful Tea party's

More of My Treasures...

Hello Ladies and Welcome again to Our Home! I am sharing some more random shots of my treasures throughout our home..I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we do living with them.

My Sweetie took this shot about 22 years ago of a wild rose while we were on vacation and we had it blown up and matted to fit into this beautiful vintage frame we had. It hangs in our dining room over the cabinet I store linens in.

Some more of my transferware pieces that I can't get enough of..

I covered this H (for Home) with a damaged piece of lace..

This sweet chiming clock also hangs in the dining room along with the two tea cup prints..

Thanks for stopping in today..have a great weekend!
