Gift From the Sea
Come join me for brunch in the backyard. We aren’t close to the ocean , but we can pretend before the day gets to hot.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea. Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I know you can’t tell, but somehow this is the only salad plate that is upside down. Oops.
Salad Plates – Home Goods earlier this Spring
Salt & Pepper shakers – William Sonoma Outlet
Dinner Plates - Target.
Both the dinner and salad plates are melemine, amazing.
Chargers – Pier 1
Placemats – Ross
Flatware – Our everyday for years
The placemats are shades of yellow and orange & match the napkins and orangey starfish.
Glassware – Home Goods gift from my Mum, I love the texture of the glass. The grid is a nice counterpoint to the shapes of the shells.
Salt & Pepper Shell – William Sonoma Outlet
Cake Plate – TJ Maxx
Starfish Garland - Marshalls
Before company arrives there is time to sit by the pool, listen to the waterfall with a glass of iced coffee and catch up on some reading. There is an extra rocker with cozy pillows if you want to join me.
The quilt was made years ago from a line of Fig Tree fabrics by Joanna Figueroa for Moda.. Her fabric always has a lovely vintage feel. Soft, but not faded.
Of course the perfect reading material is Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
I feel we are all islands - in a common sea. Anne Morrow Lindbergh
