Vintage Jadeite Tablescape

                                                              Hello everyone,
                        It is a beautiful evening here now but I am thankful for the good rain we had                                 overnight as it has been hot and dry.
                         Today,I thought you might enjoy seeing my friend's collection of beautiful jadeite
                          dishes that she has been collecting and generously lent to me for a fun photo                                 shoot out on our screened porch.
                           The vintage enamel teapot is from my own stash and the pretty salad
                           I picked from our veggie garden. We grow organically and besides being pretty
                           nasturtiums are edible!

                              The table is set for four so you can join us if you like.
                             The roses are David Austen Golden Celebration and the pale yellow ones in the bigger bouquet are The Pilgrim also a David Austen rose.

             I hope you enjoyed a quick peek at my friend Snow's beautiful collection
                      of vintage jadeite dishes from the 1940's and 50's.Thank you, Snow for your                                  generosity!
                            I have been busy with plans for the upcoming Downton Abbey Tea (tickets                              have all been sold) and I gathering up my prettiest china and planning the menu(so                          much inspiration on pinterest!) I think anticipation is half the fun!!!
                       Speaking of anticipation, my sister from Vancouver is coming to visit on Friday
                       after a month in the Netherlands visiting our cousins and touring around, so we will
                       have lots of catching up to do. I was delighted that she got to see the home where                            our mother grew up and it still looked the same as the picture we have of it from                              all those years ago- I have never been there yet but it is definitely on my                                          bucket list!
                          I am joining BTNOP for Tablescape Thursday today - Home at Rose Chintz                             Cottage-  and Home Sweet Home for the Charm of Home.
                      Also joining My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.                

                         Thank you for taking the time to visit me!
