Lavender Tea Time

             Hello everyone,

          It is a rainy day here today so it
is another indoor tea time.

                                                                               The sun room is my favorite place
                                                                               for tea when it is too wet outdoors.
                                                                               I love this toile pillow that was a gift.
                                                                               I am reading Rosamunde Pilcher's
                                                                               Voices in Summer right now.

                                                                               My peonies make such a pretty
                                                                                bouquet in this antique pitcher.
                                                                                 I have my lavender hat all
                                                                                  ready for tea.
                                                                                    Tea anyone?

                                                           I am excited to have my Picnic by the Pond featured
                                                           in the latest edition of Romantic Country! It is on the
                                                           news stand now if you would like to check it out.

                                             I was out plant shopping today as they
                                                        are clearing out ~ hard to believe it is
                                                        that time already. However, now I have
                                                        to find a spot for them in the garden!

                                                          I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for
                                                          Tea Time Tuesday today.

                                                                     Thanks for stopping by!

How exciting, Carolyn! Congratulations on the magazine feature! Your teacup is very sweet and I adore that hat! Like you, I am very much a hat person. And I love the toile pillow too. One doesn't see lavender toile very often. Your peonies are simply dreamy and they look gorgeous in the pitcher. Thank you for sharing your good news with us and joining my little tea party. Have a lovely week.

Your tea is breath-taking...and a huge giant CONGRATS for your magazine feature. That's one of my very favorite magazines, and is no surprise you are in it, my dear. Well done.

Good luck - finding a spot in your rich luscious gardens may be a real undertaking! : - )

Congrats on the magazine feature! Voices in Summer is one of my favorite books! I reread it almost every summer:) I just love the home life described there. And the gardens!

Very nice to be featured in Romantic Country, it's a magazine I often buy for the photos. :-)
I'd be there in a minute for a lavender tea if I lived closer and you know where to send the hat if you should ever tire of it?


Congrats for the magazine feature, you deserve it as it's magazine worth it!
Love your tea setting, so romantic and so summery.
