Every now and then I will be sharing
changes in my booth at Midway
Antique Mall in Columbia, Mo:

I am located right along I-70
if you cross through the
center of Missouri going
east to west or the opposite.

With a booth (or stall) that is
only 8' wide by 13 ' deep - it is better not
to close in the center area. 

 I think my prices are very reasonable!

  We all have stories
of places we have been where
people just stuff those spaces too full!

As you can see I have some 
lovely teapots and am selling
some I have had for years.
I just have too much myself.

Believe me - primitive is alive
 and well in Missouri so my feminine
appeal is a bit of unchartered

It is so hot in Missouri right now. 
 Everyday it is well up in the 90's 
and we need rain.  One flower that 
doesn't seem to mind is the Zinnia!

We needed something that could take
the heat out by our mailbox!

Hope you weekend is lovely!

MARY ANN'S TEA ROOM for "Tea In The Garden"

Like many of you we have been
 busy this summer and have 
had some company so 
yesterday we took our friends
 to Mary Ann's Tea
Room In St. Louis:

We enjoyed a lovely
Afternoon Tea:

The food was delicious although
I forgot to take photos until the
end of the meal.  I thought the
flowers outside were lovely too.

It was a very hot day but we made several
more stops - Lafayette Square area and
also Warson Woods Antique Mall.

Warson Woods is always a favorite:

I love this fun booth:

Because of company,  I haven't gotten
around to commenting myself on those of
you who linked last week - I thank each
one though and will visit you all soon!

Other teatime blog parties include:

Today we took company to the
Yankee Peddler's Tea Room in
Osage Beach, Missouri:

You can  see my friend entering above.

This tea room is much like a trend
across America where tea rooms are
like luncheon cafe's with delicious
salads, soups, quiche and sandwiches,
 etc.  There were quite a few men in
the room and they seemed to really
enjoy the food too.

This was a wonderful find for me
at the tea room as I found a
 plate that matched my
cup and saucer.

Afterwards we went to an antique
shop nearby.  This is like a little
village of wonderful shops.

The food at the Yankee Peddler's is really
quite delicious.  Their presentation is
lovely too and I especially love their
specialty salad with nuts in it.

I will be sharing another tea room next - one
where we will be enjoy true Afternoon Tea!

Sorry to get started late today
but life has been summertime
busy as it is for you too I imagine!

My tea in the garden today
honors our first President
George Washington
 and his wife Martha.

I love this old Homer and
 Laughlin transferware.

Yesterday I baked a lemon pie and 
doubled the recipe and crust so I had
 enough for a deep dish pie and
 24 little tarts:

The tarts seemed perfect
for tea so please help yourself:

Our Canadian friends celebrated on Sunday
and now here we are celebrating on the 4th:
