Tea And A Visit To Garden Fairyland

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am so glad you could join me for another outdoor tea!  I set the tea table by the arbor in front of my lavender Clematis.  In the background is my potting shed and four square garden.









Everything on the tea table are thrift store treasures!






The teacup trio  is unmarked and also the teapot.





Pretty bluebirds come for tea!








After we finish our tea would you like to take a stroll in the yard with me?  Did you know I have garden fairies living among my flowers?  Come with me and let's see if we can find them.





A couple of little fairy homes.









Fairy garden in a old wash tub.






Do you see the garden fairy running through the lavender and creeping jenny?





Another sweet garden fairy enjoying the flowers!






Fairy garden in a old wheelbarrow.






Fairy babies snuggled among the Ladies Mantle.






A little garden fairy daydreaming.





Lastly, I had to share this one!  No, she is not a fairy, but a red squirrel peeking at us!  One thing for sure, you never know what you'll find in my yard!






Thank you so much for coming to tea and seeing a little bit of my fairyland!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Make It Pretty Monday, A Return To Loveliness, Tea In The Garden, Teacup Tuesday, Cottage Garden Party, Share Your Cup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, and Show and Tell Friday.

Your tea table in this garden setting is just perfect! I love how you set the table with thrifty finds. The lovely trios are so pretty. My favorites are the sweet photos of your fairies in the garden and this would be so much fun to visit. That squirrel is a darling pic and gave me a chuckle!

The fairy homes are darling. I'm not sure if I mentioned to you but I LOVE FAIRIES!!! I think my favorite on here is the "daydreaming fairy." The garden with all the fairies is so enchanting. What a great post this is. I am leaving here with a smile.

Love,

LOVELY... I have only just started adding a fairy part to the garden... after all if you believe in fairies you should provide them with a place to rest!

JEANNE ILLENYE said...

Just precious with all your darling little fairy friends in the garden, and the wheelbarrow village is adorable...as is the little intruder in the Bluebird house. ;o)
