Brunch on the Deck

Yesterday I shared my deck off of the sunroom.  A place that is my view to the world from my kitchen window. I love the intimate setting it offers for a cup of coffee, or an impromptu lunch. Today I put together a little brunch with tea. I used my wedding china from France, and two of my pastel fruit motif vintage salad plates. Once I had glimpsed this faience, all the traditional wedding china choices were left behind.

Crown China Staffordshire Teapot

Being short on space, I wanted a little greenery
 without interfering with the tablesetting.
So I used two small iron urns to double as decor
 and a spot for holding the silver. 

Ivy cuttings, a vintage seed packet and a sprig of dried flowers.

Love the Country French feel of the tablecloth round,
that uses three different patterns and fabrics.

Grabbed a few pillows with vintage linens
to dress up the chairs.

Not vintage, but oh so comfortable.

I pulled this together in about 20 minutes.
Sometimes I forget that it doesn't take that long to make a special setting,
and that makes any meal more fun. 

I'm joining Sherry over at No Minimalist Here
for her Block Party Theme of Outdoor Entertainment.

And don't forget to head over to At The Picket Fence to
catch all the Summer Block Party Link Parties.

also joining in for:

Hope I'll see you here for Vintage Inspiration Friday

Time for Some Vintage Summer Fun

Hi there, all you dear sweet Peeps!
New Day,
New Week,
And time for some Summer fun!

I put together a sweet little pendant necklace
for my Block Party Give-Away.
Vintage ladies' watch faces are so dainty,
so, I incorporated this one onto a charm,
with a Blinged Vintage Key and a teensy flower.

I'm making more this week and they'll be in my Etsy Store soon.
So keep checking back if you'd like one.

Update! Just listed 5 new pieces in my Etsy Store!

Today starts Block Party Week
hosted by our girls,
Heather and Vanessa from At the Picket Fence.

Each day this week
there will be a link-up for a Summer themed party.
Each link party has a Give-Away for participants.
So, the more you link up, the more chances to win fun stuff!

for the links to the Block Party blogs and parties!

Thanks so much for the love this weekend,
you all are the best!!!
