TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY

 Welcome to Tea in the Garden on Saturday...you must come and sit a while in my backyard garden....I have set up a little table for you over by the blooming clematis....




I have my crochet bedspread on the table and some mix and match china.....I love those old crochet bedspreads.  Have you ever passed something up in an antique mall - only later to deeply regret it?  I'm sure you have and so have I!  I once saw one like this with pansies and when I went back - well you know.....

If you would like to post something about tea in your own garden, patio, or sun porch...please link up at the bottom of this page!
I have a pot of tea ready for you and you may pick your chair!



.  





















Some of you remember when I cut up my grandmother's pillowcases and some old table cloths and made 24 sets of chair covers for a tea I had last summer.  I chose these 4 today to use.  You could make some of these too!















Early in the morning the sun comes from the east and casts shadows all across my back yard....















I invite anyone who would like to share tea in your garden, patio or porch to link up today below!

Dear Bernideen,
such a lovely tea party in your garden! Oh I would so love to be there! I adore this wonderful 3D-crochet patterns. What a pity, that you missed the bedspread with pansies. But who knows,it might be good for something. I really love your plates with the golden borders. The roses are so perfect painted. And the spoons are extraordinary - you know, I love the shell shaped bowls. I will come back when Mr.Linky is on duty. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea party.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello Bernideen
The bedspread you're using for a tablecloth is beautiful and I love the shiny silverware I saw.
Isn't tea in the garden the best place for having it? Thank you for hosting these lovely parties.

What a lovely setting for tea. I do so enjoy your wonderful blog via Reader (so do not comment much) but wanted you to know.

I am going to make some darling chair covers like that one of these days!

Bernideen -- you always set such a pretty table and I do like your idea of the crochet piece for your tablecloth and your chair covers . . . sigh-- such a pretty table.

I've been too busy working in the garden to have tea there this week -- but I should be back next week!
