Day 366 – A Jubilee tea!

Day 365 – Bamboo!

Another stunner from Nadine, my mom decided she couldn’t live without it and I wholeheartedly agree! It is beautiful linen, in fabulous shape and is huge. My mom has an octagonal dining room table that almost nothing fits on well. This one not only fits but you can see more

The first

This would have been a fine addition to our “Round the World” week but I didn’t own it at that time : )

This was a very recent find at the Alameda Flea market. In amongst a pile of white cloths and delicate embroidery this certainly caught my
