A Better Late Than Never Floral SCAPE in my Boudoir today!

A Better Late Than Never Floral Scape from my Boudoir today! Be sure to visit our FAB Hostess, Susan, from "Between Naps On The Porch" to see all the other scapes today!

I decided when I didn't get my scape pics done last evening, it's TIME for a Late Scape in my Boudoir! I really didn't feel like crawling out of bed today to go to work...but I managed it! But not before I created this quick and easy breakfast tray! An aerial view! For the summer I purchased this lovely Chenille spread with three shams & a toss pillow at my favorite Consignment Store, Emma's Attic, a few weeks ago. It's a bright and sunny yellow, made by "Mary Jane Home" and it's so cheery to wake up to. The pillow in the background is very special and I'll be sharing it in this upcoming Meta Monday post.

The floral tray is a favorite of mine from years back that I purchased at TJMaxx for only $12.99. It's huge and is perfect for a breakfast tray! A close up view of the Charger, import from Italy, Dark Blue rimmed Yellow dinner plate by Gibson, and the center French Floral plate by American Atelier @ Home. This little tea mug is a favorite of mine from GANZ, you'll have to double click on the pic to see if you can read "The Meanest Mother In The World" verse that's on it. I bought this for myself years ago while visiting Clemson, SC. Every mother should love her children so much to model this Mean Woman! ;) I believe it's still available in some gift shops!

How pretty and wouldn't it be wonderful to get breakfast in bed but the only way I can accomplish that is to have surgery!

Hi CC
I don't blame you a darn bit for not wanted to get out of bed this morning...I didn't. Randy tucked me back in after he woke up. His snoring kept me awake till 2:30 AM AHHHHHHHHHHH it's a a very rainy day to boot.
He's a very happy camper though, he truly thinks the job will be his.
So your precious Abbie made it all the way to Fifi's. She looks adorable as always. Can't wait to see what Fifi does with it, and hopefully see it on your wall.
Happy TT my dear friend.
Love Claudie

Lady Katherine said...

Love the tray, the charger! I adore the yellow gibson plate! I been searching for some blue and yellow plates with no luck! The floral dish is lovely as is your chenille bedspread! My oldest daughter would steal it off your bed. lol I have had many, and grew tired of them. Silly, Silly me! I wish I never let them go. There is a neighborhood sale tomorrow. I going if I can find someone to take me! I can't bare to miss it! Wish I could drive! Only ten minutes at a time. I over went that last week when I ran away from home for over 3 hours, no one knew where I was, I forgot to take money,phone ect. I had a blast driving the back roads, then to my old buddies home. My drivers license are expired and can't seem to get anyone to take me to get them! That why I went the back roads! lol Love your dishes!!

The Stylish House said...

Catherine,
I love everything item you have on this post! That mean mother cup is so perfect and wouldn’t it be great if there were more mean mothers in this world? I love the blue and white combination together with the pop of yellow. I am a fan of consignment shops also, because you never know what treasures you might find.
