Our Cottage by the Sea

Hello everyone,

As the weather is warming up here
we are looking forward to relaxing
            at our little Ocean Song Cottage
 by the Sea.
Since our family all live close by
it is a favorite gathering place
in the summer.

We have enjoyed some sunny days
at the cottage all winter.

It is so relaxing!

It is fun to add little coastal
touches here and there.

Our next project is to give the kitchen
area a makeover and then we are
pretty much done of putting
our stamp on our little cottage.

                                                 Are you looking forward to sunny
                                                           summer days too ~ maybe some long
                                                            walks on the beach?

                                                                 I hope you have a wonderful

Summer Garden Teas

Hello everyone,
I hope you didn't give up on me
as my little blog break stretched
out a bit longer then I planned.

This time of year there is always
lots to do as we get our garden
ready for the season and spring
cleaning done inside.

     We are getting some beautiful spring
    weather here so it won't be long until
         we will have lots of color in the garden.

I am looking forward to tea
in the garden once again.

        So, I am sharing some summer teas
from past summers.

       Ah! so romantic
                                                                       Evening light is also
                                                                       very romantic....don't you think?

I love garden bouquets and
pretty linens.

    An afternoon tea by the pond.

Right now our garden is still in the
brown stage but the warm weather we are having
will make a big difference.

Appleblossom time

Cabbage rose tea with transferware.

The Downton Abbey Tea I
hosted a few years ago.

I am looking forward to hosting
a garden tea for a very worthy cause
in July this year.
I will have more details coming soon
so if you are interested stay tuned!

Thank you for visiting me,
