Tea Party Tuesday

mothers-day-bird-with-ribbonsI am dreaming of a Spring tea party as I sip my tea.


The lovely Rhondi of Rhondi's Rose Colored Glasses is hosting Tea Party Tuesday. The weather has been like Spring and Spring is for daydreaming...

mothers-day-bird-with-ribbonsIt made me think about Spring bouquets,

mothers-day-bird-with-ribbonsPlease stop by Rhondi's and visit all of the Tea parties for this Tuesday. I can find no one better to listen to when I want to daydream, than Chris Botti. I created this for you...

It's time for Spring

Good morning Karen
Your table is so beautiful and the perfect setting for a spring day which we are having here today. Your painting of the young girl is the perfect backdrop for it too. Thanks for joining the tea party. It just wouldn't be the same without you!
Hugs, Rhondi

Ah yes, are so right. I have missed those spring flowers and their lovely colours all mixed up together. Cannot wait for a bit of warmth on my back and to be able to spend time outside without being huddled against the elements. LOVED your post, thank you
