This is my first time participating in Tablescape Thursday which is graciously hosted by Susan@Between Naps On The Porch. Susan's creative ideas have enhanced her home and have been an inspiration to me.
My friend Barbara and I like to get together once or twice a week and we sometimes treat ourselves to something sweet with a cup of coffee at the local donut shop. Sometimes we host each other in our homes for our sweet treat. We are very informal and enjoy entertaining each other at our kitchen counters.
During the summer months we will treat ourselves to something along the lines of these little strawberry shortcakes drizzled with chocolate syrup.
Barbara and I each have our favorite plates. Mine is the pale pink petal plate, and Barbara's is the darker pink.
And of course we have to have our iced coffee!
One dishtowel spread out on the counter serves nicely as a placemat for us both!
Now when the weather turns cold, we turn our attention to hot coffee, and we sample lots of different flavors. Our favorite on a crisp Fall day is cinnamon!
We satisfy our sweet tooth with something like these delicious chocolate mousse-filled cakes, topped with a little whipped cream. Yummy!
There's always room for one more if you'd like to pull up a stool and join us! The more the merrier and if the kitchen gets too crowded we can always move on into the dining room!
All my finds are from thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales, or discount stores such as TJ Maxx, Target, and Michael's. There's nothing fancy, you don't have to 'dress', just come as you are, relax and sit a spell with us!
I am a homebody who does not like to roam far from home at all. I have not been Blessed with the gift of wanderlust. I will leave the touring and traveling to others as I prefer to stick close to home.
I love my life. There is not one person I can think of that I would want to change places with. The older I get the more comfortable I am with myself, and each day makes me more grateful for the Blessings God Has Bestowed on me. Truly, my cup runneth over.
