Austin's Last High School Play

 The great old comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace" was
presented by the Berea Community High School drama department
three nights last weekend. 
 Austin played the part of Mortimer Brewster. 
The first time I saw this play, it was presented by the BHS class of 1966.
It has been presented many times over the years at BCHS. 
 The entire cast, freshmen through seniors did a splendid job!  
Below: 
Virginia, Austin and Christian
as Aunt Martha, Mortimer, and Aunt Abby.

An Amazing Surprise Teatime Gift

I received the most thoughtful surprise gift in the mail from blog reader, Nancy in IA. 
I love this quilted table runner! 
 It fits perfectly on Aunt Ida's cherry table (here), on the square cherry tea table Glenn 
made, and on two of my tea carts.   
Nancy's work on this beautiful quilted piece of art is perfect for me!


I live in a state full of quilters, my mother, my Aunt Mary and my grandmother 
were quilters.  I am not a quilter.  I have never tried, and at this point in my life, 
I don't expect to begin quilting. 
This makes Nancy's gift even more special! 
Thank you Nancy!

Beleek Teapot

I've written about my Beleek teapot previously.
It is my favorite teapot and was  a birthday gift several years ago from my husband.
The purchase was  "arranged" by our thoughtful daughter, Melissa,
when she and I were in a Cincinnati tea shop.

Counting Shamrock Trios

A variety of shamrock trios on the tea cart. 
Four shamrock trios on my 2017 table.
Four Royal Tara shamrock trios on my 2014 table. 
I have a variety of eleven shamrock trio sets. 
Perhaps, I need one more to make it an even dozen.

Royal Tara Shamrock Table

Royal Tara "fine bone china" is made in Ireland. 
These photos are of my 2014 St.Patrick's Day table. 
The serving plates are the very traditional small size, so I used 
the green plates Aunt Ida gave me years ago under them. 
I love the dainty shamrocks on this pattern. 
In addition to the four Royal Tara teacup trio sets and teapot, 
I have the sugar bowl and milk jug (creamer), but
for whatever reason, they aren't sitting on my table in these photos. 
Are you counting my shamrock pattern teacup trios? 
The answer will be in the next post.
