Candy Stripes

 I was all set yesterday with a post (in my head!!) ready for Seasonal Sunday but it is now Monday night here in Australia so I guess I missed that!! I had a lovely few days in the city with my daughters and their children. I didn’t get much Christmas shopping done but I guess that will happen sometime in the next few weeks!
We have had some strange weather -  finally the rain has stopped so we are able to start our harvest then we had two days of extremely dangerous conditions (you may have heard about the fires at Margaret River) then we had some rain and today it has been perfect for harvest.  I took the opportunity to set a little candy striped table outside before it gets too hot. Mind you the flies just about carried me away!!
There is nothing new on this table. Just bits and bobs I have gathered up from around the house. The flatware is my favourite by far… I also love the napkins folded like that so I could tuck a flower into them…….and the striped cups and saucers are also very cute….in fact these really are my favourite colours.

The pastel colours of your tea are delightful and I love the cutlery.

Very pretty colours! So summery, which it is down under, even though it's almost Christmas. However, I like the fact that you can dine outdoors and enjoy the lovely weather in November. Have a great day! Blessings, Pamela

You are not alone, the entire world has had strange weather this year. From what is being said, it will not be any better next year. There is so much beauty in your country. I loved it there and truly enjoyed all the pretty things you shared today.

I love this table, Suzy!!! I just adore the whimsy of it all!!! I like pastel colors, and this is just such a happy table! The flatware is VERY fun, and I am really, really fond of the striped cups!!! The gold rim makes them just a little bit sophisticated without being "snooty." I love that fencing in the back, too. I have never seen fencing like that before in whole logs. That is very different...very cool!
