Polish Pottery and Hearts

I have never used my Polish pottery for a Valentine's table but I have some heart shaped plates and bowls, so I said to myself, why not!
 So, there it is! I started with a red lace tablecloth with hearts all over. I know John bought me a tablecloth with hearts on it from an estate sale while I was in Florida, but I could not remember where I placed it and while searching, I found this instead.

 I thought these daters' figurine would work out well for a centerpiece. I surrounded them with pearls, a dotted heart and a red poppy, placed them all in  larger Polish pottery heart bowl.
 added some flowers

 Here is the Zac lady, looking like she is watching the daters very closely. She reminded me of my mother when I was a teen-ager, lol.

 Polish pottery goblet and red wine stem glasses.
 Blue Royal Albert rose napkin rings.
 For our tea, I used a Polish pottery tea set and used the tea cups with hearts again.


 The blue sky matches my pottery and flatware.



 Vintage blue glass S & P shakers. I have PP s & p shakers but I  packed them already.

Thank you so much for stopping by. And thanks especially to the hard working hostesses.
I thought I would share one of the latest pictures of my granddaughter Rea with her growing hair. She was just done with the first cycle of her immune therapy (I think 5 more to go), which is the last phase of her treatment. We can't wait for her to be all done with all the treatments but she has been cancer free with no evidence of disease for some months now and we are very grateful. This is how brave she is when they draw her blood. She is very compliant and she just looks and then she helps the oncology nurse mix the tubes after, lol.  To everybody who has and is still praying for her, thank you so VERY much!!

So glad your little one is responding so well. Bless her heart! Children are amazing. Your heart dishes are lovely. I like your use of the heart for your centerpiece with the daters in it; very creative and cute. The Polish tea set is wonderful and I'm always happy to see the heart teacups. Thank you for joining me for tea and enjoy your day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your beautiful and brave little grand daughter will continue to be in my heart and in my prayers. Bless you and bless sweet little Rea.

Your table setting is breath taking. The Polish pottery heart shaped dinner wear is fabulous in your wonderful Valentine's Day tablescape. The young daters centerpiece is perfect for Valentine's Day too. Beautiful job Christine..... Bravo!!

Margie said...

I'm glad to hear that your granddaughter is doing well.

I find the blue polkadot and yellow roses design of your Polish tea set so charming!

Susan Clayton said...

Lovely table. Prayers and good wishes sent your way.

Your Valentine post is just precious! I love all the blues you shared. Although I missed Sally's Blue Monday I did post some blues this morning. I hope you will stop by. Your pottery is quite lovely and I have enjoyed each photo and the words you have shared here. Thank you and come visit me soon. Happy Wednesday!

Very pretty table Christine. You do have some awesome pottery piece. Your sweet little Rea is a very strong and brave little girl..

Beth @ Conversations from my House said...

So glad your little Rea is doing better. What a brave little girl! I LOVE LOVE LOVE polish pottery. I most just have serving pieces but use it often. I need to look for those hearts now. What a pretty table you set!!

Diane said...

Christine! I am exactly like Debbie. I have been away a great deal, since my husband retired and had no idea that your family was having to endure the illness of that precious granddaughter! I will add my prayers, even though she seems to be better. Many, many hugs to you and your family. Enjoy your Valentine's Day at the gorgeous table - love your Polish pottery!!

Valerie Roberts said...

What a stunning and creative table. Love the way you set your plates. Such a creative and unique table setting. Gorgeous napkin rings. Valerie

Traci said...

So adorable! I bet it's easier to watch being that she's easy & doesn't get upset. Still praying!

Tea in Texas said...

What a beautiful table, it is almost funny to think of a Polish tea. But the colors of the porcelain Crystal ware were so unique that it made your table look so appealing. The use of the boy and girl was a real Eye catcher and finished off your wonderful table. If you have time please visit my website and view a Texas snowfall.

Your Polish pottery is very beautiful! I work with a man that came from Poland in his 20's and does not like this type of pottery at all. He says his mother's cabinets are full of pottery and he'd like to throw it all out and buy her modern stuff! Can you believe it? My mother had a saying: "God gives a beard to he who has no chin!" Meaning that sometims the wrong people end up with valuable things. I'd love to take over his mother's cabinets. On another note, I'm sending prayers for your darling granddaughter. God bless!

So beautiful...love the Polish pottery with all of the red. Quite striking!

Bernideen said...

Your table is set so pretty with the red tablecloth as a base for the polish pottery. I pray for your precious little grandaughter. Lest I forget I pray right now that healing will come to her in the name of Jesus.

Laurie Ritchey said...

Such a pretty tablescape, Christine. I don't know how you do it. Packing for a move, house for sale, and still setting a beautiful table. This pottery makes such a pretty setting. If I had room for any more dishes, I'd be trying to buy some of it. I got a laugh out of the pottery chaperone for the dating couple. Thanks so much for sharing this at my party.

Laurie Ritchey said...

I forgot to tell you that I think Rae is amazing. This picture is so precious, and I'm so glad she's doing so well. I still have her in my prayers.

Sarah said...

Christine, the Polish pottery is a perfect choice for Valentine's Day. Just lovely!
Sweet little Rea is a champ. So happy that the news is so positive.
