Simple Weekend Luxury: Morning {in bed} Coffee

Simple Weekend Luxury: Morning {in bed} Coffee

One of the many “luxuries” I enjoy in life is weekend breakfast in bed. Nothing makes me feel more luxurious than listening to music, drinking coffee, and reading my book. Snuggled up in a pile of linen pillows. Here is the recipe for Orange Marmalade from Ina Garten, I love to slather it on my gluten free bread. {it’s the weekend, calories don’t count} You lucky non~allergic ones can have croissants! It’s not difficult to make and I hope you will love it as much as I do. I’ve made it with lemons, and that is very good too. I hope you have some relaxing time this weekend. xoxo

White Ironstone was originally potted in England in the early 1800′s. The Ironstone blanks were decorated with colorful patterns and were an immediate success in England, it had lasting weight and strength, and became a very popular form of pottery. A collection of quality antique ironstone adds history and decorative beauty to your home, and the pieces are still very usable! That is the best part of these strong white dishes, they can still be used every day or on holidays, they earn their keep. They mix well with everything else. We sell stunning Ironstone Antiques at FrenchGardenHouse.
