BEATRIX'S OWL for "Friends Sharing Tea"



This morning I reset the buffet in my kitchen which I often do.  My bouquet of Stargazer's was in the window receiving lots of light and they have all burst-ed to fullness - just about done really!




I am also sharing another Beatrix Potter Figurine that I could not resist because it reminded me of the day the fat little owl landed on my bird feeder and the squirrel came along!  I am also sharing a vintage runner I found while rummaging through an antique mall that I thought was sweet.  Some of you might remember my little vases with birds on them as well.








Isn't he cute!


My bird feeder last October 2013:


I was so happy to have spring on the calendar but I am well aware that April can always bring us snow here in Colorado.  The very wet kind of snow.  Is some snow not so wet?  Yes, we have snow that is much more dry - figure that one out!




I am officially telling you that of all my English cups and saucers, this is my favorite one - an English  Staffordshire hand painted one - I absolutely love the colors!  I am hoping you have a tea cup and saucer, tea setting or something you baked that you would like to share for FRIENDS SHARING TEA today!  Just link a post from your blog (yes this is for tea related bloggers) at the bottom here.  Be sweet and include a link back to me on your post as well!

Hello Benideen,
Love your figurines as I too love BP. That is a very pretty teacup and has springtime all over it. That bunny holding the teapot is adorable and I always enjoy seeing him too. Thank you for sharing your pretties with us and for joining me for Tea Time. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen! What a darling little vignette set up on your buffet. Such sweet little pieces and the little owl plate is darling. That is a beautiful buffet too.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I wish I had a place like your buffet to change up displays, I'd be moving things around too. The BP owl is sweet, especially since he's showing love to a squirrel.

Hi Bernideen,
Your Beatrix Potter Owl figurine is so pretty and I love your hand painted teacup. Everything is so perfect for springtime. I hope that your weather improves and becomes springlike. Today it is sunny in B.C. and a welcome change from our rainy days. Thank you for hosting Friends Sharing Tea. Have a wonderful week! Karen

Someday I am going to surprise you and join in. Perhaps when spring is more than on the calendar. That is a beautiful tea cup and your buffet is darling, too.

Beatrix is one of my all time favorite women. Her figurines are so adorable, and this one is totally precious! Lucky you : )
Your hutch looks great redone for spring. Your Staffordshire hand painted tea cup is really special, no wonder it is your favorite.
I am trying to link up, but having some trouble. I will keep trying.
Hugs,
Terri

I can't imagine getting to see an owl land on my feeder! How fabulous. Your owl figurine is just adorable and perfect for a tea table. Love your tea cup the colors and pattern say Spring to me. It snowed here in NY yesterday, I am ready for Spring to arrive too!! Thanks for the tea fun!

Snap said...

I think the owl is my favorite Beatrix Potter figurine ...but I love owls! Your Staffordshire teacup is gorgeous. I can see why it is your favorite. Love the linen table runner you found ... the little chicks too cute and perfect for spring. Thank you for hosting and Happy Tea Day!

Beautiful setting and vignette Bernideen! The Potter's things are gorgeous, I specially love the owl. I once had an owl land in my window sill and it was a White owl, so they say it's 'good luck' around here! The tall rabbit with the black board and teacup is to die for!
Your teacup is lovely, how special English teacups and saucers are.
Thanks for hosting the lovely tea party.

Thank you for hosting Bernideen! I was just reading a diary of Beatrix Potter last night. Love the little owl, and how wonderful to have one on your feeder. I would love to see one that close! Your buffet is beautiful.

Happy Spring!

Love all the figurines especially the little chicks and I adore the bunny butler with the teapot! Thank you for hosting :).

Susan Clayton said...

Love the cup and the figurine. Hope the Owl is friendly and not eyeing Mr Squirrel up as DINNER!

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Bernideen,
it makes me always smile to see this precious photo of your birdfeeder with Owl and Squirrel. It really worth to be printed in a magazin. Not only its so seldom to habe an Owl on the birdfeeder, but also with a Squirrel! And how fantastic that you could take a sharp photo. Just unbelievable. So this little Beatrix Potter figurine is like a predestination of that situation. I really love it.
Your buffet decoration looks cheerful and springy. Thank you for sharing and for hosting this sweet event. Hope, spring will come soon to you.
Best greetings, Johanna

Marilyn said...

Beautiful! Love your owl, the bunny holding the teapot, the table runner, and oh that teacup at the end of the post is just gorgeous! Your table feels so Spring like.
