MY GARDEN TEA PARTY!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 172! Today we are going to celebrate "My Garden Tea Party." I know for many of you have been working on this all month. It has been a whole lot of fun. This party has been Terri's desire and she has been working on her's for weeks. As for myself, I got side track on my yard and so I prepared something today. I know, last minute is not good. My grandchildren were with me most of the day so that did not help, but they did add a whole lot of joy in so many another ways today.
This cute little spot is on my front porch. Believe it or not, more men sit out here than ladies. This is a favorite spot for my son's friends. For some reason, they like these fun little sets, instead of the big ones in the back. It is not unusual to have 5 or 6 of my son's friends sitting around this little table, texting or just talking to one another. It is really very cute to see these big guys sit there. I would take a picture, but that would not make them very happy. I am sure I would hear a "MOM, PICTURES, REALLY?" from my son. I always try to keep it cute and current for them. This spot can sit 6 easy and has so many times.
I have set out a Patriotic Table. The tea pot is a vintage Aynsley. Look at the lovely thumb rest!
The trio is a very antique set. Not really sure who made it. The portrait it's self is hand painted. It is an all time favorite of mine. I have had it so love I forgot where I purchased it. I usually do not do that for something so beautiful.
This next one is a Royal Stafford. It is amazing. The gold's are so rich and thick. The pictures do not do it justice.
It has been drizzling off and on today. For a while I thought it was going to rain today. It never rains in California. I do hope the weather has been better for you. This kind of weather makes my whole body just ache.
The grandchildren has been having a blast and it is just the beginning of summer for them. Remember those summer days? Where did the time go?
Sending blessings and lots of hugs. See you at the My Garden Tea! Martha
