Guests for Tea

Hello everyone,
    I hope you had a lovely weekend. We had a wet one with more rain to come for the next few days.However,Friday was a beautiful day and I had a couple of lovely ladies for a garden tour and tea.
I used my autumn colored china again.
I baked some pumpkin muffins and some pumpkin orange loaf.
Garden roses.

My daughter made the most delicious pumpkin cream cheese muffins ever. Thanks Jen!!!

My lovely guests enjoying their tea on the porch.

This lovely lady on the left just got married and her Mom came for the wedding.
It was such a beautiful day!

It is Tea Time at Rose Chintz Cottage today so go have a visit if you haven't already.

Thank you for stopping by.

Carolyn, I don't have a blog and have been hesitant to even leave a comment, but I have so enjoyed your beautiful gardens and home and tea parties. Just now I went back to your Oct. 2010 posts and was blown away! The one around Oct 21 when you went on a day trip and took exquisite photos of so many lovely old homes and landscapes was very, very beautiful. On another day you posted photos of sunshine! They were so lovely! I live in the pacific northwest and we're already in the dark, gray rain, so your beautiful photography is a great lift. Kay

Many thanks, Caroline, for the refreshing pictures you post! On days like today, when I have been writing non-stop on my newest work in progress, I love to visit your site just before I leave the computer behind for the day. The breathtaking flowers, beautiful china, and inspiring music set the tone for my hours of rest ahead.

May God continue to bless you and your family, and may He grant you special favors because you have given yourself so freely to us.

Hi Carolyn!

I love the way the fall sunlight looks on your porch. I've never before tasted pumpkin cream cheese muffins! I will have to ask Jen for that recipe - they look very yummy. Undoubtedly, your beautiful guests thoroughly enjoyed their visit with you.

This is so "autumny" and I am amazed at how your flowers just keep blooming! Enjoy the changing season! Before long you will be decorating for Christmas.

Katy Noelle said...

Dear Carolyn,

I always appreciate that
you appreciate the beautiful light that is so different in each season. I love it, too! It's so nice to know that someone else sees it! ;) I can just feel the autumn sunshine, in this post. It's wonderful and the thought of tea time and the seasons are two thoughts that make me so very happy - over and over and over again! (You MUST know what I mean? =D)


Katy Noelle said...

Oh, look! How happy! I just read a few of the comments that others have left, here, and they think and feel the same as we do. They love the light and feel wonderfully refreshed! Well, that just makes me smile (kindred spirits and all that! LOL!)
