Welcome to another "Trayscape Thursday!" Yes, I know -- it's not really a tablescape, but it's all I could manage again this week. :)
This delicate porcelain cup and saucer belonged to my mother. I think I've told you in the past that she loved dishes. She had a collection of these, which she proudly displayed on the hutch in the dining room. I often wonder where she got them, because there was not a lot of money around when I was growing up, and I can't imagine her going out and buying something as frivolous as this delicate piece. It is Fan China, made in Japan.
I've already shown you this small Lenox teapot and creamer, which also belonged to my mother. I love them because they are perfect for a single cup of tea.
The tole tray was a birthday gift from my husband, a few years ago. The flowers -- the last of my Mother's Day gifts.
I feel like I've been cheating the past couple of weeks, showing a "trayscape" rather than a tablescape. But I've got so many unmatched pieces of china that I use quite often for a cup of tea here, or a piece of cake there... And I don't often set a full table and have dinner parties.
And I just love to set a pretty tray! ;)
As always, many thanks to our wonderful Tablescape Thursday hostess, Susan. Please visit Susan's blog, Between Naps on the Porch, for more wonderful tablescapes.
