Oh you always make the most beautiful things out of your finds.


So pretty! You are lucky to be doing anything outside. It's still far too cold here. Have a wonderful time at your party. I know it will be fabulous.

Big Hugs,

Beautiful, Andrea! I love how you used it for plantings. I wish I was able to sit outside already! I feel like I run from the car to the store and back again to avoid the cold and wind.

How very, very beautiful! I love the blue and white anywhere but it is gorgeous used for gardening purposes- xo Diana


You are so smart! I love the flowers in the blue and white. Love it! Your guests will too. :)

Weren't you shocked by this beautiful day after all the warnings last night?

Ok, I have a couple of "finds" like these in my booth in an antique mall in Mineola. They are so outta there and coming home with me to be planters. Thanks for the idea!

Sorry, all I can think is I want those pieces of china! I have collected 5 dishes and 2 salad plates and can find no more! What a find and the flowers do look gorgeous in them. What a great idea!

Oh how pretty Andrea. I am dreaming of Spring. Today it is miserable and cold here. Love the blue and white in the gardens.

I am enjoying all of your beautiful flowers today! We had an ice storm here this morning, so I am happy to see some signs of spring. The flowers look great in the china pieces. I hope the weather is good for your party!


What a lovely idea! I am still dealing with freezing rain here in PA, so I will have to just enjoy looking at your photos :\
Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven to say hi!


You Southern ladies make me want to head to the garden center....3 months too early, lol!

Just darling. I now your guests will feel special. Hope the weather is Perfect for you.


Such a clever idea! We have had so much rain here that I have been positively lazy. You, however, have been doing amazing things. Love that blue and white!


Beautiful! The bright colored flowers look so nice with the blue and white dishes! I have a couple months before I can enjoy flowers our on my deck...but it's coming!!! :)


Love your use of the blue and white tea set in the garden. Now you have me wanting to look for some pieces to "plant". Have a great week,..visiting from The Tablescaper.
