A Chintz Tea for February

"See the falling snowflakes
drifting by the pane,
Winging glass like angels
falling just like rain.
The air is crisp and stirring,
the freshly fallen snow.
And the warmth I'm feeling inside,
sets my eyes aglow.
This winter's day has come before
and will come again.
It finds it's way to Earth
every now and then."
Linda A. Copp,
  A Winter's Day

Hello everyone,
Well this is my first post for February.
January was a crazy month at our house. 
My MIL passed away on New Years Eve
and we all had health issues thru out the month.

I found a new teacup with peach pink roses.
 It's marked Harkers China Company.

The tablecloth is Garden Party by Moda.

Most of the dishes I am using you have already seen... here
In a previous post.

Thank you for stopping by. I am feeling much better now and many thanks to all of those who left such kind comments  on my last  post.

Hello dear Clara,
My deepest sympathies, my friend! I'm so sorry you've been ill and had to say good bye to a loved one.

Your chintz is gorgeous and always brightens my day when I see it. I love how you married the pretty pieces together with others. It makes for a very pretty tea table. I enjoyed the poem too very much. I'm glad you're back and sharing with us once again. Take care, and thank you for coming to tea.
