Our santan (aka: ixora coccinea) plants in the yard are in full bloom so I decided to cut some flowers to put in a blue and white vase to put on the dining room table.
I think they look so pretty against the dark furniture.
Since I am taking pictures in the dining room, I might as well show you around.
I moved my sterling silver tea and coffee set on the buffet, the pattern is Poole "Lancaster Rose". John's patient sold it to him when we first moved to Natchez. I know I have to polish it but I don't want to buy any more silver polisher cause I have some but they are still in MS.
On the left side of the buffet is my Lladro girl carrying a jar. She is too tall to go in our shelves where the other Lladro figures are right now, so she stays out in the open.
On the right side is a flatware rack inside a cloche. I also added various candle holders and a mercury silver based hurricane lamp on each side.
Inside the corner china cabinet, I displayed some antique Tirschenreuth plates (top shelf) and a souvenir plate and cup of Prince William and Princess Catherine's wedding. I like the initials on the cup (C & W) which are my initials and the date of April 29 written, which was their wedding day but also both mine and John's birthday.
The middle and bottom shelves display various Quimper plates, teapots and cups.
I bought this Quimper tea set from one of my visits here in Cape Coral, before we even moved here. So, it has traveled from here to Natchez and then back here again.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I always appreciate your visits and comments. I am finally slowing down opening boxes in the garage. I am almost done so I am ready for the next move, but our movers aren't, (my son and his friend) are still saving up vacations from work. But, there is no hurry since we have not sold our house in Natchez yet.
