I am hoping for the best outcome for my American friends tonight as they tally up their election ballets.
Aren't the feathers of a Peacock beautiful? I came across a bunch of them for sale at the local Dollarama store and love the colours.
My transferware bowl is one of my favourite pieces as a Dear friend gifted it to me for my Birthday years ago and although the years and miles have separated us I think of her every time I see the bowl.
The marking simply says "Lake". I have only seem one more of these in an Antique shop a few years ago and it was marked $75.00 so needless to say I still only have the one.
Welcome & thank you for stopping in! Many of you know I absolutely Love transferware and yesterday I found this beautiful setting of 37 pieces in a Shop I have not visited in over a year. I had met the lovely Antique shop owner at a Alzheimer's Family Support meeting over ten years ago. She is now 85 years young and although her spouse is still living in the nursing home she carries on with their little Antique shop. Whenever I enter her place I always end up leaving with a smile and a great treasure. Yesterday was no exception, I found this setting for eight and an old oil lantern I was looking for as a housewarming gift for friends.
Today we are hosting a dinner party for our friends as it is our Saturday to prepare the meal. I have chosen a pasta & spicy sausage dish for dinner tonight so we are looking forward to enjoying it with sourdough bread & a coleslaw recipe of my Mother's.
These two bone handled pieces are from my Sweetie's family .
Below is a liquer glass that was my Mother In Law's and I am on the lookout for more of these as I only have three glasses. The stem is twisted glass and the edging is gold.
My new dishes came with one serving bowl above. And my Grandmother's little bird salt & peppers look great on the table.
I was told the dishes are from around 1930 and the maker is below.
Well the table is set now we just need the guests to arrive....
The framed print below hung in my Mother's bedroom since I can remember.
The two smaller pictures below are ones we found at a Car Boot sale in London over 14 years ago.
These triple chocolate cookies will go well with the Cappuccino frozen yogurt below. Oh how I love comfort food!
Blessings to you & yours as you enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Wanda
Fall is one of my favourite Seasons! We visited one of the Market Gardens in the Valley we live in and every year they make a display with all of their Pumpkins. They had not finished the project so we will have to visit them again this coming weekend. People drive out from nearby cities to see be photographed with the great mounds of pumpkins. I say "Fall... Bring it on!" Fall Blessings to you & your Families! Wanda
Well I finally made my own Cactus pot! I have been admiring them in shops and could not believe the price they wanted for them. After many trips to our local florist and gift shops I found four different Cactus plants and an attractive pot to coordinate with our home. I am loving the look!
While we were vacationing in North Dakota I found this beautiful table cloth and fell in Love! The colours were perfect so it will be treasured and companioned with some vintage linens from my collection.
Tonight we had our Saturday Friends over for Dinner and I must say the East Indian meal I prepared was amazing! We call them our Saturday Friends as we take turns cooking for each other every Saturday evening.
See how the new table cloth looks with my favourite paper napkins...
Thank you for stopping in... Blessings to everyone! Hugs, Wanda
