This is a lovely tea given to me by my dear friend Diane aka Cameldiva. It has a pleasant, light, flavour. Very nice, wish you were here Diane to share a cuppa :)
Here is my pincushion, but the 'doily' part is not sewn onto the pink satin. I am not pleased with the way the crocheted part is up off the table. So, I'm going to make another cushion or maybe I can just remove some stuffing. I want the tips of the doily to rest on the table.
I tried lilac and pink satin and chose pink because it just seemed to look better for this one. There are little pearls all around on three of the rows, I hope you can see them.

A dear friend picked up this little book for me at a garage sale :)
She, who never goes to garage sales, was on holidays and 'just happened' to stop.
"As soon as I saw this" she said, "I thought of you". Isn't that just like a true friend :)
I had to show you the inside and how it is written.
All the little write-ups are by separate authors.
All the pages are framed just like this.
A precious gift that I treasure from my friend.

Below is a picture of the work that I'm going to do after my tea. I have some pots for the back deck that all these things are going into. Two will hang on hangers over the back of one pond. A couple small ones around the ponds and the tomatoes and some flowers in the big pots on the main deck part. Oh, and that would be Cassie, one of my helpers. Don't look too close, I shaved her and it's not perfect!
Below this, is me at the local Nursery/Golf Course having tea with a friend, who kindly took my picture--thanks Susan :) yes, I know, now I need to go change my profile pic!
Susan's blog is on my list to the left, Nice, Not Nice. I hope she joins us for Tuesday Tea.

This is the view from the road.
This is how it looks as I'm standing in our driveway, looking the length of the house.
We tore the original railing off the back deck a couple of years ago and quite like it without.
I still have to get more flowers placed around the pond and a couple of big planters on the deck. Maybe we'll put some tomatoes in the big pots along with a couple of herbs and flowers.
The arbor needs replacing, but that'll have to wait a bit.
I actually used the small rototiller on two of the flower gardens. I am in the process of moving some of the flowers around and turning two flower beds into lawn.

Last weekend I went to a garage sale and found these items for six dollars they had a lot of vintage things, some very reasonable and some more expensive. I love the Royal Albert cup/mug and the little dishes I bought to put my tea bag on because I don't always use the pot :)
