An Elegant White Tea Time




                                 Today I am going with a white
                                              feminine and elegant theme for an afternoon
                        tea. .......so don a pretty dress.



Gloves, a sparkly purse and a hat.

                                                               Pearls,lace and roses.

                                                                 A white table is set  in our little
                                                                 Gardener's Cottage for tea.



Heart shaped sandwiches to go with
our tea.
                             
                                                                   A pretty teacup.

                                                  Or maybe you would rather sit in the Martha's Garden
                                                  and enjoy all the white blooms of the Deutiza's.
                                                  p.s. right now this garden is all white as it is covered
                                                  in almost a meter of snow so no tea parties here for awhile!


                                                  Hope you enjoyed an elegant white tea today!

                                                                                          Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                                        Carolyn

My Summer Porch & Romantic Country




 Hello everyone,

Hope your week is going well.

I just wanted to share my exciting news
with you today.
My summer porch is featured in the
Summer Romantic Country magazine.
Of course, I was super excited to find
out one of my photos even made the cover! 



                                                   The summer porch last summer.
                                           I love using wicker furniture,the old iron bed
                                           vintage linens and of course bouquets.
      Lilacs and pretty china.

                               There are also some photos of our Downton Abbey Tea
                                         from a couple of summers ago.It is on shelves now so
                                        you can check it out!
                          
                                          I am lapping up some sunshine in the sunny south these
                                          days so I couldn't put a photo of the cover on yet as I
                                          am not at my computer.
                                             I have taken lots of new photos to share when I
                                           get back home.

                                                          Wishing you a lovely day!
