Today my grandmothers tea pot holds daisies, lilies and lavender from my garden. I threw in a few hosta blooms too, they are pale purple and I have a ton of them this year! I like how they add a little height and have a different form than the daisies.
An old tiered server that I found while garage saling last year holds fresh berries and mini croissants. My iced tea is ganished with more berries and some pineapple. I am enjoying Lipton Vanilla tea right now, it is good hot or iced, but I also like plain black tea with a touch of sugar and lemon, or rooiboos tea.
I whipped up some apricot butter for my croissants. Just a little apricot preserve mixed in with real butter. Oh I am being decadent today. I usually try to watch what I eat better than this. All this butter and bread...you did notice I said "try" up there right? All right, I admit it, if I didn't eat butter and bread I wouldn't have to "try" to be good, *sigh*, well I'm going to enjoy it anyways. Life is short, eat croissants with butter:>)
Here is a sneak peek at something else I have been up to. I made this pillow for my shop. It is made with a vintage hand embroidered piece and new cottage fabrics in pretty bright colors. I am making designs I like in case they don't sell and then I will be able to enjoy them myself:>) Clever huh? I do love this pillow, I 'll have it in my shop in a couple days. Until then, enjoy making the rounds for tea. I have seen some very pretty parties at Jan and Tom's place. Go have a look!
