A FALL QUILT AND TABLE SETTING for "Friends Sharing Tea"

Hello dear blogging friends!


Yesterday I was at an auction and got 
this lovely quilt which I later washed
 and hung on the pony wall by the stairs.
I thought it was nice for fall.


I then went down to the tea room and
set up a little fall table to share.


Because.....as I was opening bag
 #2 of 255 pieces of Halloween candy,
 I suddenly remembered I had 
a post to do for today's blog party.


There were so many kids out 
for Trick or Treat and they
were all well behaved and
said "thank you"!



My husband and I have been so busy -
we thought we might get bored in
retirement but .....no such thing!



Thank you for coming back after my 
computer hard drive crisis!
I will be joining these blogging
friends and their party:
Tuesday Cuppa Tea

Bernideen, your autumn tea table in your delightful tea room is so beautiful. Your tea room and your entire home look so warm and welcoming. My post this week (always on Thursday) will be completely unrelated to tea - Chili Verde - so I'm using this post which talks a fair bit about our difficulties in getting a good cup of tea in restaurants. I looked on the bottom of the saucer and wrote down the maker, but I've yet to find my little scrap of paper I wrote it on!

Good morning, dear Bernideen! Oh, I am so happy to be joining your party today. It's been ages since I have linked up with anyone. Thank you for hosting, my friend.

May I just say "WOW!" What a lovely quilt you found and it looks just perfect hanging in your home. And your sweet little tablescape brought a smile to my face. What a lovely place to sit, relax, and enjoy tea.

Hugs to you!

Hi Bernideen...love your quilt! Vintage quilts are so decorative. Your setting is so pretty! Love the transferware. We had trick or treaters but there aren't many kids in our neighborhood. Thanks for hosting and have a lovely week. And thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea.

Your new quilt is just beautiful, Bernideen! I have always loved that particular pattern. Also, your tea table is just perfect, and those dishes are wonderful for Fall. Of course, your tea cosy is just darling. Thank you for hosting and have a happy week.
