Grey Dey Thursdey. . .Vol. VI

Every once in a while, 
                                         I indulge my hopeless romantic side.

                        classical piano music,
                                                                   a cup 'o tea
                                                                                       all on a Grey Trayscape

Studio One is the affectionate title 
given to my creative space in the lower level On Crooked Creektt.

           I work nearly as many hours as I did before retirement.

                    it is important that I pamper myself. 

While researching the next seasons decor for our home 
or gifting design for our Bit's 'n Pieces booth, 
I often stop midday for a cup 'o tea.

A hand crocheted two~tone doily atop
                                           a monogram linen tea towel
                                                              sets the backdrop for this Grey Trayscape.

The romantic elements within the Grey Trayscape include
tea pot for one,
      a petite silver three~arm candelabra,
                   delicate hand embroidered cocktail napkins
                                 and a stack of vintage Gold Crown China 
                                            topped with an heirloom hand painted tea cup.

A perfect blend of accessories
                               for indulging one's inner creativity
                                                   in celebration of a life being lived to its fulfilment.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining

 Michelle @ Petite Michelle for 

Grey Dey Thursdey!

It is my wish that you, too, 
will experience the serene and tranquil inspirations 
that only the hue of gray can bring into your life.

I love your turquoise china and the cup! It's so pretty!


Oh dear Pat, I love your vignette in the tray and your dishes are gorgeous! Hope you had a nice Easter.

I always like seeing that Gold Crown China --it looks good with gray. Gray is a peaceful color and have you ever noticed how comfortable you feel when you wear gray? I'm glad that you spoil yourself a bit as you work away in your studio.
