{My 2nd Most Popular All Time Post So Far}

It is my blogpost: {1862 Christofle Sugar Sifter Spoon 'Filet Violon'} that received the 2nd most pageviews of all time. Just click the above hyperlink...
Guess this IS a lovely presentation for a warm heart shaped waffle with hot tea served on a tennis tray with teacup from Royal Albert Princess Anne in a lovely rose pattern...
The 1862 French Christofle Sugar Sifter Spoon 'Filet Violon' is a beauty!
The silver muffineer we had made for us while living and working in Indonesia, following an antique pattern and I will show that soon.
Cupid Awake and Cupid Asleep with its original 1897 sepia photos is THE most popular, even if it has been sold right away.
Temporarily you will find this sequence on my sidebar and you can also click on the thumbnail for going there...

      There must be a reason that this is the second most popular... We love those tennis trays with teacups.
      Happy weekend to you as well and stay cozy.

  4. Lieve Mariette,

    Ziet er allemaal heel klassiek en representatief uit.
    Weet wel hoe ik mijn thee drink uit kop en schotel met koekje.
    Thuis gaat dat op een gemakkelijke ongedwongen maar nette manier,
    maar ben ik ergens op theevisite wil ik me wel graag gedragen zoals ik dat vroeger al van mijn moeder geleerd heb.
    Maar wat ik me afvraag:hoe jij of je visite dat doen wanneer je thee en lekkers op deze wijze gepresenteerd krijgt.

    Fijn weekeind en lieve groet!!
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, ja het is ons gelukkig vroeger goed bijgebracht en dat gaat er nooit uit. Maar met zo'n lekkere wafels en thee weet ik wel raad hoor. Voor mij geen poedersuiker (vanwege diabetes type II) maar wel wat maple syrup erop en dan met de benen opgevouwen onder mij in mijn leren stoel met dit setje naast me op het kleine tafeltje. Het is zó op hoor! En heerlijk. Of in onze veranda als we visite hebben en wij beiden nemen het ook op het dienblad mee op ons balkon. Allemaal even goed. Dit nemen we niet zo snel mee de stenen trap af naar de gazebo...
      Liefs en ook een heel fijn weekend.

      Oh you would be more than welcome, I'd love to serve you some. Real easily made and they are a treat with some tea.
      Enjoy. Sifter spoons are a very simple way for making a yummy dessert!

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja, zo loop je tegen heel wat dingen aan in je leven die je nooit eerder gezien hebt. Ik denk ook dat dit uit Engeland komt en daarom tennis tray of snack tray heet. Als je tea cup and tennis tray googled zie je ze verschijnen maar veel in de UK. Maar praktisch zijn ze!
      Lekker om met de benen onder je gevouwen in je favoriete stoel te nestelen met wat lekkers...
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  7. No wonder this post had been so popular Dear Mariette. I love the intricate spoon and rose teacup. They look so beautiful paired with the waffle :)

      There must be a reason for its popularity indeed and who could resist such a snack being presented this way?
      We find them very practical and love to use them.

      Ja so etwas sieht eben auf ein kalter oder regenhafter Tag noch einladend aus und tut die Seele gut. Ich bewundere die Künzler die hand gemalt solche Rosen auf Porzellan anbringen konnten! So etwas ist wie ein Geschenk was immer wieder aufs neu Freude bringt. Natürlich eine Herzwaffel dazu hilft...
      Lieber Gruss und schönes Wochenende.

      This is really one of the prettiest rose china I know and the practical tennis tray with tea cup is a dream. One can enjoy simple things and feel pampered. Oh, we love waffles and the way I bake them with only egg whites they are really good, made from multi grain.
      Hugs and happy weekend.

      Those teacups are a dream... I have four of these sets and one with a coffee cup too. What a fond memory you have from your Grandfather. There is something special about waffles. I used to have an antique waffle iron in The Netherlands but I left it there... Now I have two electric ones, one with hearts and one with roses. Non stick and very easy to work with and they beep when the waffles are done.
      Hugs and happy weekend.

    1. Beste Willy,
      Dat is zeker een heerlijk theemoment! Ik vind die een van de mooiste tijden van de dag. Met het koude weer rond een uur of vier, vijf met de benen onder me gevouwen in de leren stoel met een kop hete thee en wat lekkers erbij, meestal gemengde noten zonder zout. Maar zo'n heerlijke hartjeswafel gaat er altijd wel in.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  15. Uuu, how elegant my friend! I drink a lot of Green tea, it's supposed to burn fat that's why the Chinese drink it a lot. The RA teacup is gorgeous and so is that silver spoon, plus the waffle. I'm glad you reposted this. Thanks for your wonderful visit, you always make my day!

    1. Dearest Fabby,
      We both also drink more green tea than any other. Royal Albert did create some lovely china designs and I guess they invented this tennis or snack tray it seems like.
      Sugar sifter spoons are very simple things for creating something sweet that everyone loves. A feast for the eye and for the stomach.
      Waffles are great for colder days!
      Hugs and thanks for your visit. Enjoy the Christmas Season with your loved ones.

  16. My dearest Mariette,
    Here I am after a very busy week with an intensive course and Christmas celebrations at the school... and apologizing for having been such a bad blog follower these days... Thank you so much for your sweet words, my friend, I really do appreciate them so much! I am a great admirer of your blog and your blogging style, and I indeed feel honored by your words regarding both my nature posts and my creative posts. I am a blogger of only few words, but I love to let my images speak... and I am so happy to hear that they speak to your heart! :)
    You are such a wonderful person, and I am indeed so grateful to have you as such a faithful blog reader! Thank you!!!
    Wishing you a wonderful Advent weekend!
    Lots of love and hugs!

    1. Dearst Anna,
      You don't ever have to apologize for not being able to make the rounds, we all have that at times.
      But important is that in general we support each other. You are doing extremely well with your languages and that I admire most, beside your artistic eye for beauty around you and for creating it.
      Hugs and happy 3rd Advent!
