The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Tea for Three. . .

On Crooked Creek. . .
                                           it's a Tea for Three!

Don't let the sunshine fool you, dear ones.
For on the day that these photos were taken,
we awoke to traces of SNOW! ! !

Spring is sure to arrive soon
with warmer temperatures and days of Garden planting.

But, until then, for my centerpiece 
I'm using Thyme that will soon be inserted into the Herb Box!

Meanwhile, I've set a Tea for Three 
mimicking what lies beyond the patio door On Crooked Creek!

Three taupe linen place mats 
form a triangle on my round dining room table
and create a neutral background for my choice of dinnerware.

Sage green dinner plates serve as charges atop the place mat.
An intricate blue bird on a budding tree branch salad plate
continues the taupe hues throughout the place setting.

Hemstitch ecru linen napkins are drawn together 
with a wrought iron bird on a branch napkin ring.

Green rimmed vintage stemware for our water glass
and a newly purchased tea cup with a bird shaped saucer!

World Market, ladies!
. . .and yes, they have a tea pot, creamer and sugar to match!!!

Two white porcelain baskets hold German Thyme
and are joined with my trio of Shabby Chic wrought iron birds!
( One little bird is on the other side of the baskets. . .playing hide~'n~seek!)

Purchased from The Iron Star several seasons ago,
these bird napkin rings are my favorite!

A Spring themed Tea for Three
just in time for a warming trend On Crooked Creek!

Of course,
as your hostess for the day,
I'll be waiting to seat you at our table for three.

I do hope you'll join us,
                                      On Crooked Creek for
                                                                             Tea for Three!

Until next time. . .

Dear Ones,
Recently I received an inquire from our local newspaper
The Derby Informer that they were wanting to write  a
feature story about On Crooked Creek! They're sharing 
my love of decorating in their special women's issue titled
. For Her. 

Written by Anne Dewvall, 
Life's Journey begins anew On Crooked Creek(page 7) 
with photo courtesy of Ginger G. Golden, Informer photographer,
tells the amazing story of entering into the Land of Blog.
The photos and tablescape above were done as a 
prop for a photo shoot session for their photographer!

I am so honored to be a feature story! 
But, more importantly, to be a part of this amazing city 
and community in Derby, Kansas.
