A Quite Moment

Can you tell I am longing for a quite moment at the beach.  I am about as far away from that as possible.  Landlocked in the Midwest with an ice storm moving in.  I will post all the week's post now because I may lose power.  I will come back and link them up later if I am not able to on time.

But, I can dream.....about the beach.

Real French pressed glass goblets.  I found these at Marshall's last fall for $2.00 a piece.

Thanks for joining me down at the beach for a quite moment.

I just love the beach!!!! I can't wait for the sun to shine and warm weather. I lived in Buffalo until December 22, 2010, now we are in Houston. I don't miss the snow.....Houston is so unpredictable!
I love your goblets and dishes. I can see me sitting at your table and looking out over the ocean. Just so peaceful and quiet! Thank you for sharing a beautiful oceanscape!

Oh...I'd love to have a quiet time at the beach also! Try to enjoy the cold snow...summer is coming!

Beth said...

Your china is gorgeous, Sherry! Love your still life with the roses, shells and candles too. I also am in the midwest and we've had about 3 inches of snow so far - no ice, just snow but wind and cold is coming as well as more snow. I need to get out with the snowblower - now that I stay home, that's my job! lol
Stay warm, dear lady and I hope your power stays on.
Hugs and blessings, Beth

I loved joining you at the beach. What a pretty table, and those silver shells just send me! I have those same glasses and love them. Aren't they the cutest?

I hope your dream comes true for all of us in the path of this latest storm. You bring the beach chairs, I'll bring the fruity drinks with umbrellas. :o)

Stay warm and safe, Sherry. La

We all need quiet times, some time!
Your table setting is really beautiful. I love the French pressed glasses. What a great deal! The silver seashell dishes are so cute too!


Nancy said...

I think we all long for some quiet, at times. I know I do!
Your beach setting is really beautiful. Those pressed glasses are some of the prettiest. I can't believe they were only $2 a piece! I think the shell shaped dishes are so pretty too.
What a great photo to close with!

The pattern on your Whitney china reminds me of the undulating curls of the ocean's surf...perfect for a tablescape to capture the romance of the sea. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

I feel the warm of the beach. How I wish I could scape the chilly Stockholm.

I can't believe I managed to struggle year after year living here, while the Philippines is waiting for me inviting the exotic weather §;-)

I love the simplicity you have in your table, girl! But, remember, simple is always the best.

Have a great w/end ahead, girl.

hugs & blessings,

A wonderful setting ... "beach romance" ... timeless!
I'm also dreaming of days at the beach ... enough snow already!!

I LOVE French glassware. That was a steal. Very nice table.

Barbara said...

Oh, you just took me away. The beach sounds lovely. I love your goblets and your pewter shells. I hope you survived the storm, all cozy inside- dreaming of the beach.

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

i really hope you didn't lose power! We've had rolling power outages here in Texas -- not fun, especially the one that started just as I stepped from the shower! Your table is lovely -- beautiful china! And the French glassware is so appealing.

Good luck with all that bad weather...if it makes you feel better...our 70's are gone now and we are freezing here at the BEACH:) Beautiful coastal tablescape.

I live in central NJ, and I am having those nasty storms too. We are getting hit again tomorrow with a snow/ice storm. I long for spring!

Through My Red Door said...

Wow, you've made me long for the beach even more than I was! We aren't getting the storms as bad as the midwest here in the DC area this year, but I feel like you! Stop by and pick me up on your way?!

Hope you didn't lose power, but somehow I think your home would be warm and cozy even if you did!

Stay warm!
