Preparing for the Vintage Tea Party



                                                                          Hello everyone,

                                                            Since tomorrow is the day for our Vintage Tea Party,
                                                           my friend Snow and I spent some time getting the
                                                           porch ready. Snow loves vintage style and has a
                                                           great collection of all things vintage .....happy she is
                                                           sharing some of it for our fundraiser tea.
                                                         
                                                                         This afternoon I took some time out with
                                                                         my camera to get some new photos for you.



                                                 A fellow dish lover was downsizing and gave me this
                                                 beautiful Paragon teapot as well as some other beautiful
                                                 ones for my display cupboards....Thank you Penelope!




                                                            We are using vintage tablecloths and quilts.

                                                                 Pretty Shelley teacups




                                       We still have lots to do in the morning to be ready and ...um! there is
                                                  a little matter of making the desserts but I am sure by 2 pm it will
                                                  all come together nicely!


                                                       I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
                                                               I will share more photos of the tea later.

                                                                                                 Take care,

                                                                                                         Carolyn
