Just Between Friends - Simple Brunch at The Lake For Two

Sunday, May 29, 2016

Nothing like a simple gathering between two close friends...
enjoying natural surroundings, good conversation, and a sweet treat!

On this particular day, it was a little too windy for a tablecloth,
my attempts to keep one in place were futile.

But the set of china, collected some twenty years ago, 
was cheerful and light, none the less!  :)

Another collection, 
that I don't think I've shared before, my vintage head vases.

Love these sweet, dainty faces dressed and accessorized in the 40's and 50's finest,
..."girls with pearls!"

Ceramic head vases were originally produced by florists
 to hold small bouquets they sold.

I've had the pretty gold butterfly napkin rings so long,
that they're back in vogue! 

...when hoarding pays off!  :)

One of my favorite pieces of the I. Godinger & Co. "Morning Glory" set,
the covered butter dish. 

Lemon filled and cinnamon croissants from a local bakery... delish!

Vintage green Boopie glasses filled with cool lemon/lime water...

Thanks for dropping in for a visit!  :)
