Blue and White and Love!

It was to be a tablescape with sprigs, birdnests and all the spring colours. We have a little family of birds in our garden who have just had we awaken to much chirpy chatter each morning! This morning was no exception......

However, being such a perfect morning and having my youngest on holiday, I decided to set a table near the pool with everyday china that I have had for donkey years!

All the shell detail....

The menu!
Muesli, yogurt and blueberries.
Fruit platter.
Mini Blueberry Muffins and coffee.

And a poem by Grace Wolgemuth...

That Little Boy of Mine.
Two eyes that shine so bright
Two lips that kiss goodnite
Two arms that hold me tight
That little boy of mine.
No one could ever know how much your coming has meant.
To me you're everything. You're something heaven has sent.

You're all the world to me
You climb upon my knee
To me you'll always be
That little boy of mine.

Please join me over at Susan for Tablescape Thursday!
