Coffee With a Past

This coffee set up looks a lot like something from the late 70's.  I wasn't going to photograph the scene like this but; I went to bake the cranberry orange bread, then it had to cool off, and by that time the sun had set...time change!

All of the pewter comes from the late 70's.   American style was going through one of it's colonial revivals at this time. 

So, I capitalized on this lack of sunshine by creating this coffee with a past.  I will give you the cranberry orange bread recipe tomorrow.  
The pewter is all by Wilton Armetale.

Oh I DO LOVE these photos, Sherry! I'm a real fan of pewter (and copper, as well). Both have such an old-world look and feel. I love the way the candle wax has melted down the side of your candle -- these are great pics. Your bread looks delicious too. :)

Have a wonderful week!

Your images are so charming, Sherry! The Cran/Orange bread looks delicious and your pewter really does lend a feeling of nostalgia. Thank you for sharing and coming to tea. Hope you're having a beautiful day. My son really likes Illinois, by the way and I'm so glad he does. He has sent me some pictures and it looks like a beautiful place. Thanks for asking about him.
