Tea Time


We had a nice time at the party last night and my friend and I had a great catch-up today. These English Ironstone pieces are all vintage finds called the "Old Inn" series. I really like the green and white pattern. We just munched on tea cookies because we`re both trying to eat better at the moment. She lent me a bunch of gardening books and magazines and gave me this cute aged watering can and gardening gloves! It will look nice outside with maybe some herbs sprouting out of it :)

Think I`ll be reading tonight and dreaming of spring!

What a lovely tea set! I noticed that it is on a pretty cloth too - is that another vintage find? It compliments the china beautifully.

Happy green dreams!

Oh, seeing all of those wonderful garden items makes me so eager for spring!

I love that watering can, Tea, and the gloves are very pretty. Too bad they won't stay that way once you get into the garden, lol. I do very few things with gloves on, just can't seem to work right with them.

Love, love, love that watering can.

It will make a lovely centerpiece on your outdoor table filled with whatever flowers are in bloom.

I had an old metal bucket that was in a similar state to that watering can. It proved the perfect solution for a lavender bush!

I'm dreaming about vegetable planting too, this week I start to 'chit' my potatoes!

While your dreams are filled with spring mine down here are of Autumn (fall) as it is sooooooo! hot and sooooooo! dry.

Sadly we could not put in a vegetable garden this year as this area is running out of water however that negative note I am so happy to be visiting your blog again and will enjoy very much making the recipe for bruschetta beard.
I have never tried to make it at home but enjoy it at our favourite Italian restaurant, so thank you so much.

Your winter photos are so nice they cool me down!!! on this hot 40deg plus day.

Kahshe Cottager.....yes, the tablecloth was another vintage find :)
Alice.....I never used to wear gloves either until I had a really bad and scary experience with a rose thorn.

I couldn't get the picture of the tea set....just a little box with an x in the middle...I clicked on it, but nothing happened.....but I can see your little watering can... I love tea parties....I'll have to be having one soon again.. But it is so gloomy and cold out, that no one would probably come anyway.....
