~ Enjoying Tea on the Patio ~

Mother crocheted this fabulous tablecloth many years ago. The birds singing their sweet songs seem to lure the children into dancing.
As I sat the table for tea, the day was gorgeous. Early morning sun danced it's way across the table, slight breezes were blowing, what better way to spend a day than having tea on the patio.

I've had the tea set for many years, I recall purchasing it from Cracker Barrel. I haven't stopped in a Cracker Barrel for years, they use to have a great gift line.
Beautiful Maiden Hair Fern rests gracefully in the metal tiered tray.
Let's put the garden tools up for a while, relax and enjoy the day.
Elegant handles .
I love the delicate painted roses. Many years ago I used to have a bedroom decorated with a rose pattern this reminds me of the border in that room.

Oh, Lynne, what a lovely tea setting! The tea set is so pretty and Cracker Barrel still sells pretty things. The crocheted tablecloth is so pretty! Being a crocheter myself, I very much appreciate the love and work that goes into something like this.
What a beautiful day to have tea on the patio.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

The tea set is so pretty, as is the tablecloth. I've only been in cracker barrel once and they had some nice things. I would love to have tea with you on the patio. But it is so beautiful at your place I might not want to leave. lol.

Your tablecloth is so pretty. How wonderful to be the keeper of a wonderful piece made by your mom. Your roses on the tea set are so pretty. Love the set. CB still has a good gift selection. I don't go in often, our CB has horrid service.. but love to browse when we do. The centerpiece looks just perfect with the roses.. have a gorgeous week. xo marlis
