A NEW TEA COZY for "Tea In The Garden"


Today I am sharing a new tea cozy
 I just made from some French
  Pierre Deux La Fidelite
 Chinoiserie Toile:



I love the color and also made
 myself a new kitchen
tablecloth and will later 
make chair cushions.
I will share those another time!


So let's enjoy a cup of tea!


I also made one of those
copy cat recipes for


We are so happy to have gotten some
rain in the last few days.  Our
state has been in a drought.









I find it hard to believe that kids are back
in school.  It also makes me a little sad
that the hummingbirds will be leaving
next month.  I have enjoyed watching
them go from Zinnia to Zinnia in our
yard.  I just looked out and saw one
at the hummingbird feeder.


I think Zinnias are my new favorite 
hot weather flower for Missouri!

I hope you can participate in my
tea related blog party below
and I am sharing at:

Oh Bernideen, I love, love your newly made tea cozy!! It looks so pretty with your dishes, and on your table. I'm thinking that I need to plant a taller variety of zinnias next year, and I'm going to save the heads from the ones I have now. You always have the prettiest bouquet of flowers from your garden. Thank you for hosting your gentle tea party.

Bernideen, your tea cozy is gorgeous. Love anything toile! The china is so very pretty to match too. The lemon loaf looks wonderful, yum! Love that lighter pink zinnia in your collage. Glad you got some rain. It has been cooler here this week and many folks are very happy about that. We've had some doozey rain storms too however with flooding in some areas. Our summer has been very unusual this year but I'm not ready for Fall yet either. Thank you for the tea and loaf. It was lovely!

This purple fanatic is loving your pretty new tea cozy and transfewares. Glad that your dry spell finally broke. We've also had some heavy rainfall which resulted in flash flooding in some areas. Thanks for hosting!

Your new tea cozy is lovely, Bernideen. The fabric is lovely, isn't it. Aren't Zinnias the happiest of flowers. All the glorious colours cannot help but put a smile on one's face. So glad for you that you enjoyed a little rain.

Love your purple transferware dishes and the new tea cozy you sewed. Your garden is always so lovely. A perfect place for a tea time setting.

Bernideen, what a beautiful tea cozy! That fabric is really exceptional and goes so perfectly with your transferware. Thank you for hosting. I could have used the lemon cake recipe you linked to--I had yogurt I needed to use up. Unfortunately, I saw it too late and had to throw out the yogurt (and I HATE food waste!).
