Last night I saw my first robin up in a tree behind my house.  I saw one this morning too.  That surely means spring is on it's way - right?

This means it is time to celebrate and pull out some pansy table setting pieces and have some pansy fun:

My fondness for vintage doilies is never more pronounced than in the springtime.  I am sharing a little trivet I recently acquired while antiquing:

These dessert plates are Crown Dorset.  I used to sell them years ago and I will tell you that Crown Dorset pieces are always exceptional and more embellished:

I have to tell you that it is a beautiful spring day in Colorado.  I really feel guilty saying that as I saw photos of the snow that Carolyn and Sandi received on Prince Edward Island.  

Late note:  I sold this entire Coffee Set at my shop:

Regardless of the weather, I hope your weekend is lovely!

You have the most extensive pansy collection of anyone Bernideen. The gorgeous linens compliment the china nicely and the sun coming through the window is bringing spring to you.
The robins and cardinals have already started singing and soon the nest building will begin.
Have a great weekend.

Bernideen your Pansy tea is gorgeous! Love, love this beautiful Spring spread. Your little duck reminded me of a vintage creamer I bought a while back. Must pull it out for Spring. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
