Spring Romance

It is often said that nature awakens in spring. Signs of spring have come into sight, although autumn still lingers a bit. We have drawn a promise, from the morning breeze of spring, blowing by making the flowers to bloom and rouse the garden from its sleep. The smell of fresh blossoms, the tender green leaves and the colorful butterflies are all here to say that spring has arrived.

Lately, I have been obsessed with tablescapes. If I were to pick a color to represent spring, it would be green because its associated with nature.The color green is a source of inspiration to many things and I felt a tablescape with green setting would be appropriate for the season. It does not take too much to get your center piece together. All I had to do was, get some fresh oranges with its branches, which the next door gardener decided to get rid of, while redoing the garden. I also decided to choose from my collection, some plates and ice cream cups which had flower prints to go with the theme. And now, here I have yet another table setting for the season......

My Mix and Match White Ware Collection

My collection of white ware started years back when I found plates and mugs in a fair. Since then, I have been adding up other things that match it and over a period of time, it has become a big white ware collection of mine.
I know I could have assembled them in one buy, but its fun coming across them at various places in affordable prices by chance and by putting them together, I treasure and cherish them all.
