A Red Plaid Table Top

So here we are at Ash Tree Cottage. A big snow storm is rolling in from the west. I have heard that 20 feet (no not inches, but feet) of snow has fallen in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is headed this way. Thanksgiving is Thursday ~ so much to do. How about a cup of tea served from a red vintage book of children's poetry? The calm before the storm. A nice warm cup of tea ... so civilized, don't you agree?

It's a busy week, so take a short break and visit Marty's Table Top Tuesday and Sue's Rednesday for a wee bit of a fun and relaxation. Oh and look, Terri and Martha are having Tea Cup Tuesday too. That's always fun!

Bentley, you were just out in the cottage garden ... what is the snow report???

Susan and Bentley


  1. I love the blue willow tea cup and saucer! I agree tea and a book are very civilized! Hopefully you won't get too much snow! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Such a lovely vignette, Susan...we have snow coming, too! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. A beautiful vignette Susan, I love plaid! Wishing you and Bentley a more manageable snowfall and a very Happy Thanksgiving:@)

  4. Very pretty, Susan. I love the red plaid tablecloth...perfect for this time of year.

    We have snow predicted for Thanksgiving. Thank goodness company is coming to our house!

    Have a happy day!


  5. Love the vignette you made..the pic of the dog is just beautiful. I have the same plaid material. I have it displayed in my front entrance...

  6. This is wonderful, Susan! I love it, makes me feel nostalgic.

    I would love to have some snow, but not 20 feet!!!

  7. Susan,
    Beautiful! I love plaid and blue and white. Wish I could have some tea with you. Bentley, get your cute little tail indoors and snuggle with Momma before the snow hits.
    Janie, snow in Chicago for Thanksgiving? I hope some of it drifts south :)

  8. Question, where do you find all of these awesome dog items??? All I ever find is yucky stuff with Fox terriers!

  9. Wow 20 feet!!! The last few years here in upstate New York there really hasn't been the level of snowfall we used to have but they say this year we are going to get lots. I am kind of looking forward to it! Stay warm Bentley and watch for those huge drifts! Take care..

  10. I love your plaid table topper. I have some place mats in plaid I got for Christmas many years ago but I rarely use them since it's just the two of us now. I've been going to sell them on ebay but just been lazy, chickee... Maybe soon.
    Snowing over here today!

  11. Oh yes, I agree, a lovely setting! It is a good thing to spend some time in peacefullness before the onset of visitors. I hope you have a lovely holiday.
    Your blue and white tea cup is very lovely. Thank you for sharing it.

  12. Wishing you and your family a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving day..
    I love your plaid table cloth!!very pretty.
    Big hugs, Elizabeth

  18. Wow! I didn't think till now that plaids can be use ad tablecloth? Very simple and so elegant.

    Your silver teapot is to die for. Can you still buy such nowadays?

    Happy mid-week and enjoy your Thanksgiving Day.

    Greetings from chilly Stockholm,

  19. Susan, I hope you don't get that much snow! All I can think of is how in the world would Bentley be able to go outside. He's so teeny, he'd have to tunnel his way through!
    Happy REDnesday and Happy Thanksgiving!

  20. Hoe beautiful! Love the red plaid with your setting. Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by.

  21. Sweet reds and a Happy Thanksgiving to you!
