MY NEW PATIO TEA CART- IN TIME FOR PINK SATURDAY TOO!

A few weeks back I saw this patio tea cart at a local antique mall....it was silver.  My husband painted it white for me and today I took some photos early in the morning outside....




I tied a few things on the front with wired ribbon- a small teapot which had no lid, a creamer and a cup!





I am especially excited because I have 10 Queen Anne's Lace plants coming up in my yard from the seeds I threw out 2 years ago....I thought I had no results from the seeds last year but these little plants came up which looked like parsley but lighter in color and I have been hoping all summer that these were from the seeds.......they were indeed!






You may live in an area where Queen Anne's Lace is seen as a weed but since it doesn't naturally grow here in Colorado (there is another wild version but different) I just love it!




I had thrown seeds right in the middle of the herb garden....







My squirrel friends are always begging for walnuts in the morning!






Today is as always - Pink Saturday in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.....please visit others who participate at:

Beverly's Blog which is How Sweet The Sound



This rose is for Beverly and all her hard work!







I am working away at night on my plans for an upcoming tea party....don't miss this chance this summer to have a tea party yourself!  Summer passes so quickly!














Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh, I love your new tea cart, Bernideen! It will surely come in handy. I've been on the look-out for one for a while now. Love Queen Anne's Lace too. We have it growing all along the sides of the roads and in fields here on the Island. It's so pretty! Happy Pink Saturday, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

HI BERNIDEEN,
YOUR TEA CART IS LOVELY. I WAS JUST TAKING PICTURES OF MY QUEEN ANNE'S LACE, I AM GOING TO TRY TO PRESS THEM. BOUGHT MY SELF A FLOWER PRESS, I WILL SHOW HOW TO USE IT ON MY NEXT POST. I SENT MY SISTER CAROLINE SEEDS I COLLECTED HERE IN NJ FROM THE QUEEN ANNE'S LACE FLOWERS A FEW YEARS BACK, SHE HAD GREAT SUCCESS TOO. MY NEICE KAREN IS HER DAUGHTER FROM OVER THE BACKYARD FENCE. HAVE A NICE DAY. RIZZI

Bernideen, your new tea cart is so lovely and I am sure you will make a lot of nice decorations with it. The Queen Anne's Lace is so dainty and just perfect for your Beatrix Potter Garden. Love your squirrels! So cute.
Greetings, Johanna

A beautiful tea cart, I'm sure you'll get lots of use from it.
We have fields of Queen Anne's lace here and it is stunning to see.
There is a florist's version called Ami majus that I bought the seeds for and let it reseed each year in my white moon garden.

What a nice tea cart -- and what lovely things on top! You Queen Anne's lace is very pretty -- I've never tried to grow it in the garden -- it is a roadside plant on the priarie.

Clever idea to tie tea accessories to the cart. Nice cart too. I always love seeing your squirrels.

The teacart is special! Your hubby made it more special by painting it for you, knowing it would make you smile. He is a good man, thank him again.
Have a nice weekend.
