Loving our new colours..

Hello my Blogging Friends! I am so grateful you have stopped in again for a visit.. 

We are so enjoying our new Condo life and the colours we have chosen for our place.

I could not believe how easily things came together with the new colour choices. The porcelain mugs and cream/sugar set are a perfect compliment to everything. The maker is Portmeirion and designer is Sophie Conran... I am working slowing at getting more of the pieces as I really don't need another set of dishes (what has that got to do with anything you say!) but I love the colour so much!

My little wooden tray has been lined with a wallpaper piece I had acquired over the years and I love it with the other pieces. 

My small Victorian vase from France is protected by the glass bell.  

Here is another glimpse of our dining area... I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing our place!

I love getting your comments.. thank you for taking the time to leave my a note! Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Back again, Wanda!
    It is so good to read that you are so happy and content in your new environment. Even enjoying a new coffee/tea set.
    A most gorgeous jug at the background.
    I have one just as high, but the silver is very straigth and it looks almost modern (although it belonged to my greatgrandmother).
    Thanks for showing and sharing with us!
    You asked in a previous post: what do you collect? Well, I am not really a collector but I have small collections. Things of beauty are such treasures.
    Happy weekend!
