Playing again

Well, that was the busiest and hairiest Christmas so far. All I feel like doing now is 'chillin' and slowly getting my home back to order.
I've been playing with my cupboard again.
I know this isn't everyone's 'cup of tea' but I love the blue and white china.  I mix and match and have fun hunting new pieces down.

                                       This tea-pot has feet. Cuuuuuute! 

I hung one of my new bird-feeders at the front of the house this year since Audrey likes to sit in the dining-room window.
She will be quite amused, I'm sure.
This one holds an apple for them to peck away at. I suppose you can hang suet in it, too.
Annie couldn't quite figure out what this was before it went outside.

I  love it and hope the birds will take to it. We'll see. ("Thanks John & Brittany")
Tomorrow I'll hang out the other feeder that holds seeds.

I've put away lots of Christmas decorations already but the tree will stay up until after New Years. That is a tradition in our home. Plus, there most likely won't be a needle left on it by then.

There are stewed veggies and a samosa waiting for me so I'll bid you all a goodnight. :)

hugs, Deb


  1. I ever tire of looking at blue and white china collections. Yours is just lovely.

    Cheers - Joolz xx

  2. Love to feed the birds and Charlie loves to watch them! Hope you new feeder is popular. I will be taking down my Christmas decorations this week. Ready to get the house a little more back to everyday decor! Hugs, Linda

  3. I love anything blue and white! What fun to have a collection of tea cups. I'm drooling over that interesting bird-fruit feeder. How unique! Let us know if the birds flock to it.

  4. That's a lovely feeder! I've never seen one that holds apples. Too cute!

    I love white and blue dishes, too.

  5. Is the mug in the second pic a Quimper? Blue and white china is perfect for that white cabinet!

  6. That feeder would work sooooo well with a an open mesh bag of suet. The birdies could use the fat this time of year.
    I keep Christmas going full tilt until
    12th night. Then, a big celebration
    to end the holiday season. I cant
    bear to see the season end. Nothing special 'til Easter in April.

  7. Love your china... and the bird feeder. We too keep our tree up until the weekend after New Year. And since we found a nursery that gets "very fresh" trees, it stays in perfect shape... hardly loses any needles... so it's sad to see it go.

  8. I share your love of the blue and white Deb !
    Your cabinet displays your treasures so perfectly, love the white distressed finish.
    What a great little bird feeder, I'd love to find one.

  9. I'm sure the cats are used to strange objects turning up in the house!
