Sunday Favorites

This "favorite" blue and white table setting is from my first post as I was learning how to set up my blog. I invited my neighbors and foreign exchange students for a spring tea and served quiche, assorted fruits and muffins along with several flavored teas. I used dishes my mother gave me from her vast blue and white collection she acquired while living in Japan and Hawaii. Some dishes are from China, some Japan and England and I just love to mix them. The simple goblets were from my great-grandmother and I love the bubble glass bases on the stems.

Thank you, Chari-I am having a wonderful time viewing everyones posts and learning in the process. Hope your Sunday is special.
