Red Gives Way to Blue

  All the red has   been  put away   and   has given way to  blue...

The    plate hanger  now  shows off my  lovely  blue  transfer ware 
 Silver replaces  gold,   blue  replaces red  on the  hutch
What once    showed off  the red of roses and the   shine of apples,
now  the blues   predominate and the  fruit of the vine      prevails
  my devotions table  now   steps  away from  the yuletide 
and  manifests    life in the Spirit 
And  blue has come to the table! 

Now that it is just the two of  us  the table  has been reduced  once more and  the table  set    just for us!
 Now I   can  use  some of the treasures I have recently  found...
Every table needs a bit of inspiration....  here, a  blue and white planter of paper whites takes center stage!  Then the table comes together...

I now  have   just enough    of the Wedgewood, Countryside  and  am using    odd  show pieces   as well..

I love     the Countryside pattern

and now that I have  tea cups and saucers  to match,   it is  a  real boon  to me!!! 
 I love using  Wedgewood, Woodlands

showcased , as well as
 Johnson Brother's  Old Castles of Britain  which looks  so   well   against   the   simple patterned backdrop! 

 As usual, for my  casual dining,   I am using  

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Vintage 1876
