As our winter continues I keep getting opportunities to take interesting snow scene pictures. This is a shot across the road from my house. The "smoke" you see is what some call "sea smoke" along the Susquehanna River. The "smoke" is just beyond the line of trees. It is caused, I think, when air temps are different from water temps.. Or something like that..... One definition I found said "Steam fog forms when cool air moves over and mixes with the relatively warm and moist air near the surface of the water. The moist air then cools and becomes saturated, causing fog to form." What ever the cause, it is pretty.
This next picture was taken yesterday morning when the sun was coming up. Quite a "Christmas Card" scene I thought.
I have completed two of the flowers of the six we have been told will be part of this month's project. AND the third one is cut out.... I should start embellishing this evening. I felt like I was getting behind a bit while working on the bell pull, but by working diligently I think I am presently caught up. If you haven't seen the bell pull I made you can check back a couple of posts. And check out Michelle's blog from a week ago to see what she did. We did very different projects.
Here are the two flowers I have finished do far.....
Keep checking back. I should continue to have a post of some kind about the Fellowship of Flowers every week... sometime between Wed. and Fri. AND of course be sure to check here on Tuesdays for Tea Cup Tuesday posts. (although I admit they sometimes show up on Mondays.)

Someone must have made this a long time ago.
I began finding things to go with it. Houses often have Ivy (although this one doesn't) but since I had a nice ivy decorated platter I thought it would be a good addition. Then I found the little cup and saucer with ivy and pretty little yellow flowers and then it just moved from there. I found the green checked towel that was originally a feed sack. And the pretty little towel on which someone had embroidered some yellow flowers. I had some dried hydrangea from last fall so put them in the little clear vase to tie the whole thing together.
And here is the platter. It was made by Homer Laughlin. From what I can gather Debutante must be the plate style. Or even more confusing, I read that it is the Julilee plate pattern with decals which makes it Debutante. But there are many different decals designs that have Debutante as the mark. The company must have had reasons for doing this but I don't know. It makes it hard sometimes.
So it all comes together for this weeks tea party.
I hope you are enjoying this weeks Tea Cup Tuesday. Here are links to some of the other sites.
