Recent Finds & Pretty papers

You guys know that I love linens. Bought these at a garage sale. The toy cake carrier I bought at an antique shop for a few dollars. 

Pretty new papers to make cards, one of these days.  I have to be in the "mood" to craft.

Vintage flower seed packets are so cool. I just love the old graphics on them.

The sun has been making an appearance the last couple of days.Hooray! Much yard work to do.

Let's enjoy these spring days. Summer is just around the corner!

Mother's Day Tea party

Come and pick a hat for the tea...there are many to pick from

You can be a Queen in this photo op.  One of the very talented gals made this. The theme was
The Queen's Tea.

This table is lovely with fresh lilacs.

 Vintage luncheon plates were used here!

Pretty blue and white theme here with bluebirds.

Alice in wonderland is the theme at this table.

There were 19 tables this year. Our speaker spoke of how each teacup is unique and has it's own design and style. Just like how God created us. We are also to share our gift of hospitality. Sharing a cup of tea is a perfect way to do that.

I hope you all had a nice Mom's day. I made an egg bake and had brunch here. After we ate, we sat on the deck and enjoyed the afternoon. It was a very nice day.

Which table do you think I set???

This and That

Flowers left over from a funeral at church and I was blessed to bring them home! HAPPY MAY DAY....a few days late!

Next Saturday is the Tea at church. Theme: Tea with the Queen and I made this for the event. I may redo because the word Crown is a tad off.  I will certainly take photos of some of the table settings. There are 19 tables this year. I will be setting only 1 table this time.

Had a work day at the shop and a guy came in to sell some things. I bought these "OLD" pool balls. They MAY be Bakelite. They are kinda fun and I may keep them for awhile.

The weather is finally AWESOME! Of course that means lawn work time :)  I have allergies suddenly...ugh...guess one is never too old to have them.

In a couple of weeks, having my yearly garage sale. If you are in the area, email me and I will give you all the details!
