Winter Supper

It's still snowing here and temps are at 14 degrees!!  So, I set a late winter supper table.  I like the word 'supper', my parents always referred to it as such instead of 'dinner'.  Dinner seems so formal.  I set up the gate leg table in the living room near the back door for a cozy supper for one....

Using the brown transferware plate and soup bowl......to hold homemade veggie soup, a simple supper with bread....

I am using winter greens since spring is such a loooooong way off!!  The amber glassware did not show up on the paisley cloth so I put them on little saucers from my espresso set.....

Cups are from a different set, love that pheasant, pretty colors....


And what's supper without some dessert??  These are faux tarts, how cute is that??

The little pitcher is antique majolica, the custard cup is yellow ware.......the crocheted square cloth is one my mom made,  and my fav shawl provides the color.......





Napkin is from Italy, handmade from girls living in an orphanage near where my mom grew up........silver is from my mom....


 One of a pair of candlesticks in transferware, they are so tall, but I love them!!



 The gate leg table was my first purchased antique when I was a single gal, about 45 years ago, think I paid $20 for it and that was a chunk out of my paycheck!!!  The chair was my grandmother's which I recently put new fabric on the seat........

The nest on the left is one that I made using yarns and needle felting.  Just a touch of spring, I know it's coming, just not when!!!

Hope you are all well and keeping warm!!

I love your shawl tablecloth and all your tranferware. The candlestick is perfect! I love that you mention what your mom gave you. It is wonderful that you do use her beautiful things!
So happy to stop by.

This entire setting is heart warming. The word "supper" was our family vocabulary as well. Just a simple evening meal. Have to say your pretty paisley shawl makes my heart sing, as do the transferware dishes. All beautiful! Thanks for sharing this winter table.

It looks just beautiful, Cleo! I have the same shawl, and have used it on my table too. I'm looking forward to Spring too. Enough of the cold!!

I'm such a huge lover of brown transferware, it does set a wonderful winter table. I agree, "supper" is what you have around the kitchen table. Dinner is in the dining room!
