Blue Mosaic Monday   35 comments

Adventures on the high seas!  Okay, maybe not the high seas but just the lake.  It was a beautiful evening for a dinner boat ride on our friend’s new boat last Sunday.  Lake Washington did not disappoint!  The views were just beautiful; the food delicious and our time with friends – priceless!

Have a great last week of April…

Tablescape Tuesday – Anticipating Spring Tea   17 comments

 

collages53

It was pretty chilly in Washington this weekend.  We had snow on Saturday evening into Sunday and it was quite pretty but it also made me start anticipating Spring!  So, I decided to decorate a Spring Tea Table.  The pink plates are my latest find at the Goodwill as well as one of the tea pots.  Most of the items on this table are from Goodwill.

I did find a new little shop this weekend called the Rose Tree Cottage.  I found some great silks there and the nest and most of the flowers on the napkins are from this shop.  The chair covers are of course pillow cases!  Oh so much cheaper than the real chair covers!  My centerpiece is also a Goodwill find.  I thought it was a unique arrangement and is a fun addition to my Anticipation of Spring Garden Tea!

Do come again soon!  I know Susan is expecting a visit so head on over to her blog to see more tablescapes!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!   3 comments

Wow, what a gorgeous weekend here in the Northwest!  As I type this,  it is snowing – hard.  We have had 8 inches of snow so far.  Here are the highlights of the weekend…

The picture of the cat who likes to hang out at our house was taken Saturday morning before the real storm hit in the evening.  All the other photos were taken on Sunday morning. 

We also enjoyed our annual holiday get together with the neighbors.  We were supposed to go out for dinner but we ended up hanging out around home because of the snow storm.  We had a progressive dinner and enjoyed it so much we decided we should do this every year!

Tablescape Tuesday – Tea Party!   16 comments

I had the pure delight of having my nieces over my house for a Girly Weekend. My niece Michelle turned 30 and her sister master minded an Anne of Green Gables slumber weekend at my house!  We had a tea party and my niece Katie was in charge of table decor.  The above was her creation for the event!

Here are the girls enjoying tea!
