Tea and Roses

            Hello everyone,

    It is a beautiful sunny day here today
and it is predicted to be warm and sunny
for the next several days which is a good
thing as we are expecting our good friends
Linda & Midge
from NFLD for a  few days and on Sat.
I have a  lovely wedding to go to plus this
Saturday is the 70  mile yard sale.
The 70 mile coastal yard sale is always a
fun event with so many treasures
big and small to  enjoy.

I picked a small bouquet of Polaris roses
from our garden as they are putting on
a late show.
Polaris is one of my favorite roses in
our garden as they are hardy,bloom well and
they are pretty shades of pink before turning

Love this pretty aqua teacup with
the vintage tablecloth with roses.

I recently found this chintz teacup
at our local thrift shop and since
I don't often see chintz here I
grabbed it.

                                                        Well, it is time for our morning walk
                                                                   so a little sea glass hunt on the beach
                                                                   and then a walk in the park to see the
                                                                   four big cruise ships that are in the
                                                                   Charlottetown harbor today..

                                                                  So, don't forget the 70 mile coastal yard sale
                                                                   Saturday and Sunday if you love
                                                                    treasure hunting, but there will be
                                                                   lots of traffic on the main roads so
                                                                   please drive carefully.
                                                                            On another note the Downton
                                                                  Abbey movie we have been waiting for is
                                                                  here now and I am looking forward to
                                                                  seeing it with some friends.



                                                                    Yesterday's photo of one of the
                                                                     three  cruises hips that came in
                                                                     taken by my husband with his phone.

                                                                                         Enjoy your day!

Oh those pink roses are so pretty! Love them with the teacup and tablecloth. I have a chintz teacup just like the one you bought! It's not my real style, but I have always loved it anyway.. all the colors and the design just called to me for some reason. I bet that sale will be awesome and glad you have nice weather for it. We're having a week of rain and clouds here in central Oregon.. which is kind of unusual for September. Usually it's still HOT.. but I'm enjoying the cooler days. Have fun at that sale! Marilyn

The roses are absolutely beautiful! So are both of your teacups. I hope you find some wonderful treasures on the 70 mile sale. We went to the Midland antique show today. It's one of the largest in Michigan. All I brought home were four vintage dessert plates...Love them!! It's been very warm here, too. Savoring this summer-like weather for as long as we have it. Have a wonderful weekend. Debbie

Dear Carolyn:
I sure love that white vase with the pretty roses. Your new teacups are delightful! Have fun at that sale!

How exciting it must be to see a cruise ship like that! and...the 70 mile yard sale sounds enticing. Have fun for all of us, I love yard sales. I love your Polaris roses...they are gorgeous, this is the first I've ever heard of them. Your teacups are so beautiful too. I just finished reading my cat mystery was an enjoyable read.

Such beautiful vignettes. We've had hot weather all week but it's supposed to rain on and off all weekend, then turn cooler. It will be refreshing as I love fall but I don't like the thought of snowy weather-hoping it will be a mild winter.

Hope you had fun at the 70 mile yard sale! Definitely on my bucket list... maybe next year? Love those Polaris roses.
