Weekly Table Change

I found this rug on clearance at HomeGoods for $5 to use as a "by the sink" rug, but it was so pretty that I decided to use it as a center accent on the breakfast table for this week.
I loved the jute center with the crisp blue and white fabric border.
I bought a small bunch of roses from a roadside vendor on the way home.
This is a very old dessert set made by Schirnding Haviland China in Bavaria, Germany
I don't know the name of the pattern. I've tried to find it with no luck so far.
I have the coffee pot, lidded sugar and creamer set, dessert plates, cups and saucers for five. I bought it many years ago.
All set for coffee and cake this afternoon.
Have a good week,

Tschuss!


Rita
