The morning brought a fresh blanket of snow and the sun peaked out from behind the clouds. The feeders were very active with a handful of chickadees and a dozen or so of our rather amusing black crows. I watched as they scratched the new snow looking for yesterday's seed. They like to sit above the feeders sometimes and watch for me to appear with some tid-bits.
I started the day enjoying some of my blue and white. The Salt Box was found in a thrift shop last year. The only marking on it is Germany.
Coffee in a teacup. For some odd reason it tastes better to me. Blueberry scones from our local shop were so delicious with a few fresh blueberries on the side.
The fun continues. :)
The scones look very, very tasty!ReplyDelete
Ooh the scones look delicious, and everything tastes better served on blue and white Staffordshire :)ReplyDelete
Hope you are staying warm and cozy.
Blue on blue! Lovely Deb.....ReplyDelete
The scones do look wonderful and now I am wanting a cup of tea! Stop by Still Woods Farmhouse for a little bit of spring inspiration! I know all of my northern friends could do with a little reminder that the snow will not last forever!ReplyDelete

Love your salt vessel!ReplyDelete
Having your very own things around you makes a house a home! And finding good stuff at thrifty shops is the cherry on top.ReplyDelete
It's wonderful to hear updates, Deb, on how life is going there. So glad it is coming along - and aren't you glad for a good local bakery shop! Bonus!ReplyDelete
I've seen those salt crocks go for quite a bit of money at the auctions! Yours is especially beautiful with that lovely pattern and nice wood lid!ReplyDelete
I want that salt box!! Glad you are progressing in the mouse house........Put the feed for the crows away from the other feeders, they will attack smaller birds. We have a big problem with them in the city, Every year they run sirens to scare them away.....ReplyDelete
wow, amazing. some great work you are doing so far Lost and foundReplyDelete
Crows are supposedly very intelligent birds. It's interesting that they sit and wait for you to bring food. Didn't take them long to learn that trick!'ReplyDelete
Your blue and white is lovely. Perfect with the blueberry scones.
It's nice to have something warm to enjoy while the snow piles up.
I do love blue and white (and blueberries). What an exciting journey you are on -- a lifetime dream! Enjoy the unpacking.ReplyDelete
Hugs and Purrs!
Looks lovely and YUMMY ! The birdies here are all extra energized as they sense spring in the air flying from one feeder to the next across the yard almost running me down lol ! The yard is very active now even the squirrels who have been hibernating for few weeks are out and about now ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !ReplyDelete
Love your china, and that scone looks magnificent!ReplyDelete
Yay! Good to see tea time with your blue and white at the Mouse House!!ReplyDelete
Did you see the story of the little girl in Seattle who is receiving gifts from crows. She feeds them and they bring her all kinds of keepsakes!
Love your salt box! I've been seeing them in the antique shops, but they are pretty pricey. I will take one home with me when I can find one in my price range! Your scone looks yummy! Enjoy your new adventure!ReplyDelete
The salt-box fits in perfectly with your collection. So does the blueberry scone, come to think of it. Warmed, with some butter melting on it...mmm...ReplyDelete
Ah, tea....such a comfort. Beautiful to see the birds, and your blue and white set is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
It is funny how drinks taste different in different cups isn't it! xxReplyDelete
I agree that almost everything tastes better in a teacup. Those tall coffee mugs just don't do it for me.ReplyDelete
