Tuesday isTea Time

Oh dear! I hope I'm not too late to join in on all the fun tea parties in Bloggyville.

Mrs. Bear is reminding me that I haven't hardly participated in ANY of the parties.

I am hiding my face in shame behind my frilly fan.

Now let me see. I can use my pink, flowered teapot that I just found again in one of my packing boxes...............

I could probably find some really good ideas in this little book........................................

I'll use the last of the crepe myrtle blooms for some added color to the table.......................

My new garage sale find napkins should fit right in. (These were a steal at .25 a piece.......)

I'll add some homemade yeast rolls (not homemade by me), and some butter to go with the tea, and I should be all set.
Whew!! I think I made it.
Thanks for stopping by, Bloggy friends.
I'm linking up to these parties:
Tea Time Tuesday with Lady Katherine
Tabletop Tuesday with Marty at A Stroll Through Life. and
Tues.Tea for Two with Wanda Lee at The Plumbed Pen

The Versatile Blogger Award

Lucy at FlyAwayHome just awarded me "The Versatile Blogger" Award. Lucy is a very talented crafter, and she can sure make some beautiful "crafty" things.

Thank you, Lucy for honoring me this way. I do try to be "versatile" in my postings in an attempt to keep my blog interesting. :)

Link back to the person who gave you the award, and be sure to thank them, of course.
Share 7 things about yourself.
Pass this award on to 15 other blogs which you visit often and enjoy, and let them know you
have given them the award (Here's where I break the rules a little, because most of the blogs
I love and enjoy are award free.)
1. Blogging has given me such joy, as I have found others that share my same passions, and I
have made many wonderful friends.
2. I wish I had continued taking dance lessons when I was younger. I loved being up on that
stage performing. :)
3. I love to travel and see new things although I don't get to go near as much as I'd like to.
4. I absolutely hated working, and I'm so glad I don't have to any more. My "career goal" was
to get married and be a stayathome Mom. I finally acheived my goal. :)
5. I hate getting older, and I vow "not to go down without a fight" hehehehehehe
6. I have been blessed with a wonderful family. Wonderful parents, great kids, and two
beautiful granddaughters. God is so good. :)
7. I am afraid of heights.

Mellow Yellowing Today

Hello, Bloggy Friends. I have a few yellow things I'm posting for "Mellow Yellow Monday" today.

Here's a shot of a pretty butterfly I captured recently. Isn't she pretty?

I was thrilled to find these corn pitchers recently at an antique shop in Tennessee. The bigger one is a "Shawnee" original, but the little one says "Shawnee Reproduction, China". I can't tell the difference. Can you. I plan to use these in the fall. :)

On our recent trip to the mountains, the Black-eyed Susan's were everywhere in bloom. Here's a shot I took of some of them growing around our cabin.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me for Mellow Yellow Monday.

Rednesday's Cherries

Hello, Bloggy friends! It's REDNESDAY over at Sue's It's A Very Cherry World. Hooray!

And, today, I seem to be sporting a "cherry" theme. Here are my cute cherry towels I found recently.

We recently came back from the mountains, and I found these cute pot holders at one of the shops. Had to have them!! :)

Here's a cute, tin sign I picked up at the flea market. (Sue needs this :)

Here it is with my cherry measuring cups from Pier 1 (Yes, I had to have some, too)

I have been loving my little red fan in the kitchen on these very not summer days.
I found it last year at CVS.
Thanks for joining me today!
Everybody keep cool. My power bill was $242 this month! Yikes!
