Tea Party Reminiscing

I've been going through some of my old pictures and thought I'd share with you an Afternoon Tea I gave a few years ago at my little farm cottage.  I quickly cleared away my two wing back chairs and a few side tables and I was ready to set up tables and decorate. Its been such fun to plan and give teas here for friends and relatives. Most of my tea accouterments have come from thrift shops and generous gifts from relatives and friends.
I used my collection of rose china I got from my Mom.  She gave me her service for eight and I was lucky to find another set for eight!
For this Tea I made a stuffed lady and had her sitting in the rocking chair on the front porch enjoying a cup of tea. She turned out so cute and everyone wanted their picture taken with her.
Thanks for letting me reminisce.  Please excuse the date on the photos -  I never dreamed I'd be blogging back then!
Today I'm sharing with the following parties:
Tea Time Tuesday
Friends Sharing Tea
Show and Tell Friday
Beverly's Pink Saturday
Have a great week, Nancy
