I could have just filled a mug with hot water and a tea bag, and grabbed some toast with a napkin. But I think treating yourself well is as important as treating guests well.
And so my table is set with a pretty teacup and saucer and a luncheon-sized plate.
The sterling teapot was borrowed from the living room. We bought it at Atlanta's Miami Circle quite some time ago.
The ceramic horse is actually a "TV lamp." These small 1950's lamps were styled to look like animals or objects and were originally designed to softly illuminate the wall behind the TV. Fairly soon they were wildly popular and made just to showcase the TV cabinet. We also have a panther version in a gorgeous deep brown. I think they're a hoot!
Sipping my tea, I'm engrossed in the book I received as a Christmas present. Page after page of pictures to drool over!
Thanks for stopping by! Next week I'll join you for dinner. At eight?
