Coffee and A Friend

Hello Friends~ ~
Yesterday a friend stopped over for coffee and a chat.

I got out my HUGE coffee cups for a giant pick-me-up.

I was putting another set of 4 of Mom's handmade placemats out to photograph for all of you so I just put a pot of coffee on.

We talked about knitting and quilting and family.
It was a nice visit.

I adore this French milk bottle. I keep my light cream in it for coffee.
It come in blue and red and you can get it at

This little round table is in the sunroom. It's my project table but it also makes a sweet spot for a dinner or coffee for two.
The chairs belonged to my Dad's family and we have 6 of them. They are rough shape but we keep gluing them back together. I don't want to give them up.

These coffee cup placemats are hand made by Mom and she is selling them for $15.95 + S&H for a set of 4. The set of 3 pot holders is $7.95. If you are interested please mention it in your comment and we will make arrangements to ship them out to you. Mom was so pleased that the cupcake and ice cream placemats last week sold. She loves to spend her time sewing and tatting and quilting. At 88 years young she does lovely work.

I am linking up this week to Susan at
Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
Pleases stop by for a visit and join in for the fun.

What a charming table. Is that a pitcher of knitting needles sitting between your (positively wonderful) chairs? What a lovely coffee to share with a friend!!
