Bouquets and Tea

Hello everyone,

It is a snowy day here again
today so I am enjoying going
through some of my old photos.

I thought you might enjoy some
cheery bouquets and tea today.

The above teapot is really old
but oh so pretty.

Some spring cheer in the

Peonies, roses and cupcakes

A garden tea with my red and white
transferware dishes. The bouquet
was fresh picked from our August
garden several years ago.

A romantic vignette

Spring green

I love these yellow English roses from
our garden with vintage china.

Tea on the front porch with a good
view of the garden
Love those pink hydrangeas with
the pretty dishes.

Hope you are having a happy
day today and enjoy your

Take care,
                           Marking below for the teal transferware
                               dishes as requested by Shea.

Carolyn, You always have such sweet and beautiful posts to share with us. So glad I have followed along for years. The yellow china is my favorite for the day. Very cheery and uplifting on a day like today in chilly Kansas.

I've not blogged since 2017 but I came across your link and here I am looking at your lovely photos. Stay warm.

Such pretty photos and flowers.. and china! I love the top photo with the very soft pink peonies. I wish I knew your secret for growing peonies. I planted some 3 years ago and I have only gotten ONE bloom one time.. the rest of the time they just dry out and something is eating the leaves. I've tried spraying and fertilizing, etc. but nothing seems to work. I also love the yellow roses.. so bright and cheery! Have a nice Sunday. I too have followed you for years.. not sure how long but probably 3 or 4 years now. I always enjoy your lovely posts.... Marilyn

The yellow rose with the vintage china simply took my breath away.

What an adorable pink teapot which reminds me of that raised Wedgewood. We will all be giddy when spring comes.
All your little cottages will be happy too after being closed up!
