Eibhlin of Cork.

DSCN2796cpyJoin me for a lovely breakfast of blueberry scones and tea at my house!  The creamy ivory shamrock dishes are a yard sale find.  Five dollars for the set.  Ooh…Ahh!  As soon as I saw them I knew they would look great with my Cloverleaf depression glass, I don’t remember where I bought those, but I know they are from the 30’s.  platesquared
Every year we head to the town wide yard sale in Bloomsbury, NJ.  The white ivy teapot and pedestal plate are both finds from there, total purchase, a whopping $1.50.  Bloomsbury is a charming little town located in scenic Hunterdon County.   Another event this town hosts is ArtsFest.
My Grandmother gave me the sugar spoon and my Mother, Frances Thomas crocheted the table topper, which I think is just beautiful!
The Irish lass is on loan from my good friend Maureen (Moe) Seaberg, a first generation American of Irish descent.  Dressed in her traditional Cork plaid wool skirt and Irish linen blouse and apron, our lass looks like she might be going shopping for the ingredients for her famous Blueberry Scones!
Eibhlin is the Irish version of my name, Eileen and amazingly enough it means Hazelnut!  My “favoritist” nut and flavor!!  I have surrounded Eibhlin with green votive holders, gold coins and of course a Blarney Stone.  Did you know the Blarney Stone is Bluestone?  Here in Pennsylvania we are well known for our Bluestone too! Isn’t that a coincidence?
The napkins are Quaker lace and every other item on the table is from a yard sale!  I just love looking at the snowy white tablecloth with the pretty green. 
nice one
Come to breakfast again!  Until then…
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
