Each week I look forward to my "Tea In The Garden" blog party and this week I have a special friend who agreed to pose for me. This is the first time in 10 years that my friend Lou Ann has visited with her husband. We have had a great time.
Lou Ann and I met a long time ago when I went to a small Bible College in Des Moines, Iowa. I was 17 years old and she had just been married a couple months before. We became great friends and 2 years later she and her husband were in my wedding. That was just a few years ago - 1968!
I set up a little tea vignette out under the tree quickly as showers were threatening any moment. Do you see my new topper that I found this week when I took my friend down to Florence, Colorado to all the antique shops? It has pink baskets appliqued on it with embroidery and yellow butterflies. I guess you would call the shape of the topper a scalloped square. I think it is very fun.
My friend was tucked under the tree so even if it did rain -
she would not have gotten wet. Yes, it did finally rain.
I have been cooking up a storm and last night I made a chocolate pie - like the Bishops Chocolate Pie. It has been fun to have more people to cook for!
Most of the pieces I am sharing today are English. I do love the yellow depression glass cream and sugar that my Grandmother gave me back in the late 70's. You might also notice the Victorian Plant Stand I had shared before with the china pieces on the top and lower area. Remember it was dark before when I shared it and now it is painted shabby chic. I really like it better!
