Hello my friends,
as many of you may know, Spring weather in Utah is very unpredictable.
Yesterday I was in the garden and this morning we woke up to this.
I teased on fb and said that I wondered if this snow on my weeping crabapple made it a bit crabby? : )
Well, no worries. It's 2:30 in the afternoon and the 3-4 inches of freshly fallen snow is all but melted. Nothing but a good drink for
my spring garden!
After church I walked into our entry and noticed the beautiful sun shining in. Perfect place to set up an afternoon tea.
And while I'm at it, why not share a few of my new found treasures. Each time I go get another load from the estate I am helping with I can't resist buying a few things.
It's like Christmas all over again each time we open and unwrap a box. Imagine my delight when I saw this Miss Prim teapot!
How could I resist this sweet kitty face?
And did you notice the gorgeous Crinoline dishes? Last Wednesday, My friend Dolly and I had worked hard all day. Going through boxes in the garage, the basement, and one of the bedrooms. Up and down stairs, pulling wagons full of boxes
and loading my car. So when we unwrapped a service for 8 of these pink beauties we decided that we just had to each take a set of 4. I found the aqua plate the same time that I found Miss Prim.
Strawberries and yogurt along with a piece of banana cake. Delicious accompaniment for my afternoon tea.
The table is draped with a darling vintage quilt. I found this at a different estate sale last year.
The wooden folding chair was a thrift find a couple years ago. I painted it yellow and have used it on my porch a few times. Being outside is what has given it it's chippy charm.
A couple weeks ago I was driving home from the grocers when I spied a yard sale sign. I came home with this small milk glass pitcher for $1. The Hellebores, (lenton rose) were picked from my garden 2 weeks ago. They still look pretty, but originally they were mostly pink. Now they have faded to green.
This is what they looked like when freshly picked.
My aqua door purchased from Décor Steals makes a cute backdrop. The floral plaques are vintage chalkware. Snagged at a thrift shop. The color was coming off on the edges in places. But I wiped them all over with brown glaze and they look good as new.
This cherries and cream tea is caffeine free and so yummy! I bought it in Orange, CA last fall.
I hope you enjoyed afternoon tea with Little Prim and me!
