I know I am a week late,
but it only really felt like spring
It was a lovely afternoon for tea.
I chose a special cup,
one Martha gifted me a few years ago
for our Easter Swap.
It is a beautiful trio,
perfect for spring time.
This cup has many different flowers on it,
some realistic and some fanciful.
I love her swirly touches.
(Today I am having a little chamomile tea)
Martha, I am still enjoying your beautiful gift!
Thank you so much!
I find I often muse over projects while sipping...
Tea drinking promotes creativi-tea. lol!
I found some nice linen hand towels a while back,
and began soaking them last week.
I heard that you can get any stain out,
if you soak natural fibers long enough.
They dried out on the balcony in the sun
They did come out very clean,
and the smell is priceless.
I now have a nice little stack of vintage linen towels.
While out on the balcony bringing in the wash,
I realized it is warm enough to re pot my flowers.
It is time to get the balcony ready for enjoying tea!
Last year I enjoyed many tea moments out on this balcony.
This week I will try to replant the planters,
and have the furniture brought out.
(here we see she is a Coalport, a fine English company. The pattern is "Junetime")
And if we are lucky with weather this year...
I may be able to get Bertha out and have tea in my tea tent!
That would be fab!
I wish you all could come by and share her with me,
she is a real joy to be in.
It is hard not to dream about summer,
now that the sun is out again.
What kind of summer dreams have you?
Thank you again for stopping by for tea!
I am glad you did : )
