Horse Drawn Memories

Time and the fragrance of seasons bring back sweet memories of the past .. Memories which feature walks down the seaside, cycling around the lake on misty mornings or the rain, picnics and other memories too many to mention.

The cold foggy mornings of January remind me of taking a drive to the race course for the horse riding lessons that my son took as a young boy. There is certain charm in spending time near beautiful and gentle horses and surely you will agree that the sound of the gallop is the thing of beauty. 

Spending time near the gentle beasts while having breakfast was always fun and enjoyable with the family. I am sharing with you a tablescape which features my little porcelain pony dolls and a lot of sweet memories of the past.






Those yellow fruits perched on the Smiley faced mug aren't in fact fruits. No, they aren't lemons or calamondin oranges, they are in fact Aubergines which turned yellow, because I forget to pluck them in time and so they over ripened. The porcelain pony doll is on a horse shoe I found on one of my visits.























Hope you have a happy smiley day :):):)

  15. Your table is a pleasure to see on such a very cold day as we are having today. The sunny colors are very pretty and just what I need to brighten up this winter's day. You and I must have been thinking alike, because my table vignette that Marty featured was all about memories, too. I like the way you told the story behind the memories.
