~~~A Late Summer Breakfast~~~

 GOOD Monday morning, my friends!!!! I hope you had a beautiful weekend. I am praying for our friends in Fl. and the gulf states that Isacc will not harm anyone. One day last week I FINALLY had a chance to have breakfast on the deck.
 I usually enjoy this ritual ALL summer long but this year has been TOO HOT!
 I just had a very simple, light breakfast that day. My usual fare is cereal with fruit on it. I know, BORING!! I decided I wanted some yogurt and fruit. How adventurous am I?????:):) I stacked 2 outdoor placemats to bring in the aqua color of the plates
 The scallop shell plate is glass but colored aqua also. My little frog tealite holder JUMPED right up onto my plate. I think he may have been hungry too:)
 This is the design on the other plate. I have 6 of these with different shells on them.

 I also have these shell toothpicks, left over from my daugter's bridal shower:) So, I threaded some fruit on them for a mini fruit kabob.

 It was peach yogurt with strawberries and blueberries. I ran out of granola so didn't add that but missed it:)
 I do not like plain orange juice so always mix it with cranberry juice. I think the combo is delicious!
 I love these napkins, but forget where I got them now.
 The colors seemed very complimentary to the plates. For a napkin ring I used a candle ring.

 Took this shot to show you the BEES on the juice glass. Love these glasses.
 This is my view while eating out side. I WILL MISS THIS!!!!!! BUT, not in the Fall and Spring when the LEAVES are a nightmare to clean up!

 This is the glass my yogurt was in. It is the only thing I have that was my Grandmother's. I love the design on them, sadly I only have 2.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your sweet birthday wishes. I will be joining these fun parties. Please visit some for some amazing INSPIRATION!!!!!!!!!:

  1. Pinky,
    This breakfast on the deck looks delicious!!! Your Grandmother's glasses are exquisite...gladly you have a pair for those intimate meals with Joe! I adore the frog (one of "Mr. Ed's" favorites) and the dishes are such refreshing colors for a morning meal! Your landscaping makes a beautiful backdrop to begin your day!

  2. What a beautiful presentation for breakfast. I will admit that I would be nervous about using a glass belonging to my grandmother, but using it is a nice memory and tribute.
    The whole meal and setting looks delicious!

  3. I love fresh fruit and yogurt Pinky, I usually add some granola on mine too. Your tablesetting looked so pretty! I love your grandmothers glasses, are they depression glass?

  4. Very pretty Pinky! I have those same bee glasses. Love them. The scallop shell plates are wonderful and such a pretty color!!

  5. Even though it is a simple breakfast, it looks decadent with your setting! Shouldn't all our meals be like that?!? It is a beautiful view butnyounwill get to experiment and create a whole new lovely view and you will definitely make it gorgeous!

  6. Love yogurt parfaits in the morning...such a pretty table and outdoor setting for a great breakfast. Your grandmother's glasses are beautiful...I wonder if you can get more thru eBay?...

  7. Hi Pinky, pretty table setting. I also love the napkins. Your breakfast sounds lovely. What treasure you have in your Grandmother's glasses. Good luck with my Giveaway.

  8. Pinky, this is such a lovely setting for breakfast. It seems so peaceful and serene! We must have been thinking alike...I posted a late summer tablescape today, as well! Great minds!

  9. YUM!! What an awesome view. We're in the middle of preparing for Isaac. It's not looking good for us.

  10. Oh, I would really would love to be in your table for breakfast! It is gorgeous sweet Pinky, I love it. Your grandmom's glasses are gorgeous and your garden as backdrop for this lovely table, it's perfect! Thanks for your wonderful visit, it always makes me smile. Enjoy your week.

  11. What a yummy looking breakfast, Pinky! I love your grandmother's glasses, too ... truly sentimental.

  12. What a lovely breakfast. It is perfect for the end of summer with the pretty shell plate. How fun that you can use those beautiful heirloom glasses, the perfect use for just two!

  13. Beautiful, Pinky. I love the color. It's still too hot here to eat outdoors. My safari inspired tea set came fro EBay....Christine

  14. Your deck area, table and breakfast looks absolutely beautiful ... healthy and delicious....Yum!!!

  15. Pinky, what a pretty view you have from your deck but I understand what you mean about fall leaves that have to be raked. We have a woodsy backyard and although it's colorful in the fall, it is a pain to clean. Your breakfast parfait looks healthy and delicious. Great for those days when a big breakfast just seems too much .----- Shannon

  16. Your pictures are beautiful! Your whole blog is beautiful! LOVE this! I stopped by from Mary over at Home is Where the Boat is! I'm adding you to my blogroll!!

  17. Your deck looks very relaxing to set on and enjoy breakfast. Your fresh fruit and yogurt looks like I could just take a bite. Love your plates and their color. Great job!!

  18. I'm glad you were finally able to get out there on the deck for breakfast, Pinky! Had you gone out there earlier this summer, you could have just taken the raw bacon & eggs with you, put 'em in a pan and waited about 5 minutes. They would have been cooked to perfection in this heat! :-) I'm glad you used the glass that belonged to your Grandmother. I think that's why things are passed on...for us to use and enjoy them. I like your frog votive holder! He really stood out for me! I hope you are able to enjoy many more breakfasts out on the deck before the leaves cover you and the air turns too chilly. Take care...and have a fabulous and safe Labor Day weekend!!!

  19. What a gorgeous table setting, Pinky!
    It finally cooled down once August hit us here in IL and the extra hot drought we had can still be seen in our yard with all the dead patches that still have not caught up with the recent rains and all!

    Those etched glasses are soooo pretty!


  20. What a wonderful setting to enjoy breakfast Pinky! It has been way to hot here to dine much outdoors~ I'm beyond ready for fall!

    Your gift card went out on Tuesday, hopefully it will arrive today! Happy Belated Birthday to you :)

  21. I'm sure eating outside made your food taste even better! It's funny how that happens. Your yougurt/fruit cup looks so pretty too. I'm sure it was good and healthy.

  22. Pinky, I'm sure you will miss that beautiful view!!! Your breakfast on the deck is so pretty filled with soft colors and a great yummy yogurt parfait and a cute FROG! As usual you set a table that shows off your perfect style!!! Just think... you can have breakfast soon in your new home!!! Miss you!

  23. Looks so yummy and what a lovely view! So excited for your move!

  24. Pinky, what a great place to have a breakfast it is just so lush and beautiful. I love those square shell plates and I have always admired the bee glasses. I have packed away most of my dishes and I miss them. Since out home is not selling, I am going to begin to unpack them a bit. I hope you are having better luck than we are. Joni

  25. Everything looks wonderful Pinky! And that breakfast looks so good! Have a fabulous weekend! Angie xo

  26. Beautiful! Your deck is wonderful. I love the yogurt in your pretty glasses from your grandmother. Super tablescape.


  27. Hi Pinky
    Thanks for visiting my blog!
    I bought my peplum tops in a fashion shop online, but my impression is that they are not as easy to get hold of. I spent long time trying to find them.
    Here is the adrdess:
    Best of luck!

  28. I am hoping for a few more good days to have breakfast outside. What a pretty table and that little fruit kabob is adorable!

  29. It's party time over at Debt Free Mommy Blog and you're invited! Please drop on by and link up with Making Space Mondays. Oh, and we've got some really exciting news about our new house this week! Hope to see you there! -Tabitha

  30. Oh Pinky, you make everything look so refreshing and delightful!

  31. Beautiful table. I have those chargers and love them. Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Looking forward to having you with me this Sunday.
