Spring is in the house - Plate Rack and Table

Hello sweet friends !

I created a Spring table with a pretty tea set, teacups and saucers, plus dessert plates I bought around four years ago.

Some friends have asked me in the past about the brand, but unfortunately the lovely home store we have here has it made just for the store, so I don't know. I heard they might be made in Sri-Lanka or Philippines. Anyway, that's it, I fell in love with it, whatever it is.

I am very excited after Spring cleaning somewhat, to also be decorating the home a little for the Spring-Easter season as well.

I am also practicing my Lent challenge, every year I 'fast'... by abstaining from one or two things I love, as not drinking coffee and not eating sweets... which I love both. Specially the coffee situation, it's tough come breakfast, lol..

Ok, here goes a Spring table and my kitchen French country plate rack, Mr. Living had made for me one year ago this month. I enjoy changing the rack seasonally. Now it's in pink for Easter.

I picked up all my cyclamen from my window sill in the kitchen and gathered them on a tray as centerpiece. I placed a shell bunny in the front, in the back my two cute bunnies and on the other side an antique shepherd boy.

On this side a small antique French shepherd boy my Fil gifted me very many years ago.

The shell bunny I picked up last Summer at an open market at the beach.

Opposed to the shell bunny you find my funny bunnies and Easter eggs in a nest.

I love this tea china, the pattern is so cute and dainty with little pink roses and gold.

My DD Sofia gave me for my birthday the teaset some six years ago and then around three years ago it came back with tea cups and saucers, along with cake plates, so I bought myself six teacups and cake plates.

I have very good luck with my cyclamen I keep in the kitchen window sill. Specially I guess it's because they receive a lot of the morning sun.

They last ones lasted 4-6 months, although I had one that was alive for more then a year!
