Hearts and Pines Tablesetting

This set of dishes is perfect for Christmas and all thru the winter until Valentine's Day.
It's called Hearts & Pines
Red hearts and berries with green pine needles.
It's  porcelain by Porsgrund of Norway.
Tea pot, lidded sugar and creamer.

I added cranberries to the pillar candle and strung the wreath with red fabric hearts.
multisided cup and saucer
Under a cloche surrounded by fabric hearts.
These  mini dotted handmade fabric hearts are great to use with the dishes at Christmas time and also onValentine's Day.
Snowball cookies for tea.
This little bell is very special to me. When I was a child, my mother gave it to me to use when I was sick in bed. I would ring it if I needed her. I put a little festive bow on it for Christmas.


  1. OMG! I thought I was the only late one for Thursdays! So glad I got in to see your beautiful table with those dishes with the hearts I'm totally crazy about! Just wonderful, the whole thing!... and yes, you can use them come Valentines Day. Hope you can see my blog, I'll be honored. Thank you for sharing.
    Wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year.
