April Tea Time

Welcome friends, it is just about the end of April and we sure haven't have very warm weather!  Yesterday morning  it was 40 degrees and I took my mug of coffee  out on the deck to sip and survey the yard.

This mug says it all for the area we live in!

Later in the afternoon the sun was out and temperatures risen to 50 degree!  So I braved it and had my first outdoor tea on the deck for this year!  Now I can join Bernideen for her first "Tea In The Garden" at her lovely new home!

I am using this sweet trio with matching sugar bowl I recently found at a thrift shop. I love the soft aqua blue color.  It is made in the USA and stamped English Abbey.  I have a set of the pink in the same pattern and was surprised to know they made this color also!

I found the darling fairy house this spring and Mr. Bunny came by to check it out!

I received this tin of black tea at Christmas.  The tin is a keeper for me!

Snickerdoodle cookies for tea!

Last summer I found this dolly at a thrift store.  It is a "Wimsey" doll, popular in the 60"s.  I think she is cute in her own way!

I love this pillow my sister gave me last year for my birthday.  It reminds me of my precious angel daughter.  Even looks like her when she was little.

As you can see, no flowers in sight.  If  only we could get some warm weather, the daffodils are just waiting to bloom!

Next week we are going to Kentucky to Renfro Valley for a couple of weeks.  Hubby likes the concerts and I will be liking the warm spring weather!  Hope I can find a tea room, too!

Thank you so much for visiting!  Hope your spring weather is warmer than ours!

I will be joining Bernideens  "Tea In The Garden" today.

Sunday Morning

Happy Easter week to you!  As many of you know I collect transferware piece by piece whenever I am fortunate to find some. A few years ago I found a delightful trio named "Sunday Morning" made by W.H. Grindley, Staffordshire, England.  Well, last month I was looking through the web site Etsy and found this adorable "Sunday Morning" tea pot to match!

I am using this tea set through Easter Sunday to celebrate Easter time at my log home.

You can see the villagers strolling to church on Sunday morning!

I found a dinner plate to match!

I love the Ideal publications.  I recently found this 1978 Easter issue at a thrift store.

I need to find a frame for this sweet reprint of a little girl holding her lamb.

I added another thrift store find, my adorable little lady and her lamb.  She is a music box playing sweet music while I enjoy tea time!

I wish you a beautiful Easter celebrating our Risen Savior!

Thank you so much for visiting me!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  No Place Like Home,  TTCG Blog Party, Tea Cup Tuesday, and Tuesday Cuppa Tea

Fairy Gardens Of Last Year

Happy month of March!  We now have lots of snow and March usually brings in more before our spring is here!  I have been yearning for warm days and while enjoying my  photos's of last summer I realized I never shared my last years's  fairy gardens with you!


A little teapot fairy house sitting near potted plants on the deck.

Sweet fairies returning to their cottage after picking flowers.

I caught a woodland fairy pointing to the sky!

A little garden fairy having tea in her flowery yard!

Fairy garden on a old chair in the hen house courtyard.

Wheelbarrow fairy garden.

Lastly, a couple of wee toddler flower fairies  enjoying summer time in their mossy yard!

I hope you enjoyed my  garden fairies and where they dwell in the warm months!  Thank you for stopping by and I'm wishing you a early spring!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Sandi's No Place Like Home,  Bernideens's BTTCG party, and Share Your Cup Thursday.
