August Mug Shots & Muffins

The mugs I'm using for August have an oriental design in blue and yellow.
 I bought them on super sale years ago when the Garden Ridge store near me closed.
They had matching dinner and salad plates too.
 Spent less for these pretties than some people spend on disposables.
Paper napkins and coffee filters are kept handy in
 Longaberger baskets with classic blue and white
fabric liners.
A blue pottery tea pot and creamer sit on a very old
 bread board that was from my Mother's kitchen.
 It's a fun cheerful pattern for summer.
 Change of heart 
gets a birdhouse wood ornament for August.
My blackboard memo board hangs below the heart.
Of course there's a muffin-of-the-month!
These are Orange Sunshine Muffins.
A little treat for afternoon tea or coffee.

  1. Hi Rita! Oh, your little cups and all look so sweet and I'll take one of those muffins.
    Be a sweetie,

  2. Blue and yellow is my favorite color combination. So pretty. The muffins look yummy, too!

  3. Oh my goodness, I want to steal away all the blue cups and the teapot. One of my favorite songs to play on the piano is "There's a Summer Place". Been playing it for at least 40 yrs!
