Time for Tablescape Thursday!




Friday will be my 47th birthday. I am not ashamed to say that I look 47. I have earned every wrinkle and age spot that I proudly wear. Okay....Truthfully, I try to cover them as much as I possibly can.



I know I am blessed. I have it good with no complaints.



So, to celebrate, I am taking the day off. I'm not sure what I'll be doing.....




Maybe...morning tea in bed....
maybe spend the day reading????




Who knows! The possibilities are endless!

Oh Liz! Breakfast in Bed! DIVINE!! My bed is so covered in moving boxes and torn down shelving, that I can't even FIND it under all of that mess! The thought is wonderful though, and I'm imagining a wonderful hot breakfast, just as beautiful and cozy as the one you show here today, once I'm finally settled into the new place! Happy Tablescape Thursday! ~tina

Happy Birthday! Mine is in a few days and we are going to road trip to look at the leaves (and do a little shopping) for mine. I think a day off with breakfast in bed and a book is a perfect way to spend some time. This is very pretty.

I'm 52, and proud to say that I made it this far. So I'm going to just age gracefully!

Happy birthday Liz, and thanks for stopping by my blog :) You're only a year older than me ;) I try to ignore the wrinkles and grey hairs coming through, I still only feel about 30!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Love your little tea tray. I am still on the lookout for a teapot. I don't drink much tea but I want to try to (I'm English but prefer coffee!).
Hugs
Denise
