Country Whites Weekend #1

Welcome to Country Whites Weekend!
It’s plain and simple and oh, so sweet.
Embrace your country whites and share them here!  
Inspire us. Take us home. Fill us with country charm.

Do you reward yourself? I once read an article that stated that after you complete a task on your list...you should reward yourself with a treat. I had to laugh at that. You see, I was stuffing my face at the time with a freshly baked  brownie and I had a cup of  hot tea by my side.

My belief is that we need to reward ourselves everyday whether it is a good day, a bad day, a productive day, or a day in which you wonder where did the time go? It's okay.

Now when I'm talking about a reward, I'm thinking in terms of simplicity and appreciating life. We need to take that time. I've created a little ritual everyday in which I drink my tea in one of my pretty country white cups. And I do feel special drinking chocolate hazelnut tea from it. The cups were a recent purchase from a flea market. The man practically gave the set to me. I couldn't whisk them away fast enough. You see, I have a passion for country white dishes. Let's just say I have a passion for all country whites.  

 So go ahead. Make some time for yourself. You deserve it.

Hi Cindy, I have a love of country white dishes too going back to my grandmother. In fact, I think I am a dishaholic. LOL
Yes, it is one of lives little pleasures to reward ourselves now and then with a treat and cup of tea.
Love your cup and napkin ring whites on the blue rimmed plate. That in itself is a reward to treat with. I have a similar napkin ring set of a birds. They were a gift nearly 30 years ago. Love the rooster .

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and Very Merry Christmas. Thank you for hosting the fun.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I love your collection of white dishes Cindy. I had to laugh when I read, "do you reward yourself" and then when on to "with a little treat"? I may not have it quite right, but you know what I mean. I must reward myself all the time. lol! This girl loves a little something sweet. So happy to be joining you two sweeties for your fun new party! Have a wonderful Christmas!

I love the idea of rewarding yourself! I try to do this when I have an especially unpleasant task to accomplish. Makes me power through it :)

I love country whites as well! Your tea cups are so pretty. Sounds like you got a great deal on them!

I totally agree with you about treating ourselves in some way. And if you're like me it doesn't have to be elaborate. I always say coffee or tea tastes better in a pretty cup!
Love this party, thanks for hosting!
Merry Christmas, Mary Alice
