the pleasures of laying out the table
with an eclectic mix of our prettiest
memories and new beginnings intermingled
china and glassware, old and new
I never met his mother but know her through
family silver gleaming upon vintage linen
bringing grace to our table
fresh hydrangeas in a vase
a view of the garden and the thrill of springtime beckoning
anticipation of an intimate lunch for two
Love both the table setting and the poem 🙂
Thank you, I appreciate it!
An absolutely beautiful post Marlene…thank you.
You’re most welcome, my dear. Thank you for sharing your mother’s beautiful things with me … I cherish them.
Lovely poetic words and such a pretty and meaningful tablescape xoxoxo
Thank you, Smidge. These comments mean a lot coming from you, as I admire your writing so much.
You’ve set such a lovely table, Mar, and you make it all so inviting. Surely you won’t mind a 3rd for lunch. I’ll be there at noon, thank you . 🙂
There’s always room to set another place setting! Better get started, it’s a long trip! If you can’t make it in person, do dine with us in spirit! 😃
Gosh! This is so beautiful! So dreamy! Love it!
Dreamy … I love that word for this post! Thank you!
What a lovely post and table.
Thank you Karen. I think it’s important to use our nice things; no point keeping them shut away in the cupboard!
