Coffee or Tea?

My favorite play day is here! Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ is again hosting a Tablescape Thursday, which means we get to play with our dishes and tea sets.
Brrrr! It's cold outside. Do you see that big glob of ice by the pool slide outside? Let's beat the cold and warm up with either hot tea or coffee.

I am using some of my Polish pottery. I just love playing with these cause you can mix and match the different patterns and I think they are so attractive with their vibrant colors. For a tray, I used a ceramic tray with a winter scene. And no, it's not a Polish pottery.
I's getting dark so soon. The days are shorter now. Aren't the napkins pretty with a dancing Dutch boy and girl? You wouldn't mind if they are not Polish, right? They match though, don't they?
They even match the pool water.

I just love taking tablescapes by candle light.
I'd like to thank Susan again for hosting this very fun event. And of course, I will never close without thanking you all for coming by.
Coffee or tea anyone?

I'm heading to the kitchen to fix a cup of hot tea now! Loved seeing your pieces of Polish pottery. I have one small bowl that I purchased many many years ago. I've always admired the color and pattern. You have some lovely pieces. ~ Sarah

Your Polish dishes are beautiful. Your table looks so warm and cozy with the pool glowing outside the windows. Is it still very cold? I love the night pictures, they come out so well for you. I need to practice!

Stay warm, sweet friend! :-)

Hi Christine,
I'd love a cup of tea, served by the pool! Well ... not BY the pool but rather from inside your warm, inviting home ... with a VIEW of your gorgeous pool! Everything looks beautiful, as always. Your Polish pottery collection is very special.

Thank you for the tea! It's very soothing. OK, I'm sipping a cup I made for myself ... just pretending you handed it to me in one of your beautiful cups. ;)

I am NOT envying you your cold weather. If it's that cold I want snow., but at those temps it's too cold to snow. A real catch 22! Your photos of the ice in the pool fountains are amazing to see. It gives me the shivers. Beautiful tablescape, they always are!
