The teapot, I have shared before, but the teacups are new!!
I hand-painted the teacups at a local pottery studio (Pottery Bayou) I think I matched the colors of my teapot, purchased at Goodwill, pretty closely.
A little corner of shade from a rose tree was all I had, so it was where I sat.
The strawberry cupcakes were left over from a friend's graduation open house she had on Sunday. Delicious!!
A flowing fountain, surrounded by rocks, is the scenery.
I love the checkered rug, found at Lowe's. It goes well with the checks in the coasters and on my teapot.
The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses. ~Hanna Rion
My garden bench is flanked on both sides by potted rose trees, which I recently transplanted, so they currently aren't flowering.
Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~Hans Christian Andersen
These home-sewn coasters were only $1.75 at the same thrift store..
Hope you enjoyed your short visit to my garden pond. I think I'll spend the rest of my day inside!! Whew!
For many of you, who have taken part in the tea party hops below, I had been posting my tea posts from my other blog, Christ in the Clouds. (You can find most of my tea posts HERE ) I am now posting anything to do with tea to this blog. Make sure that if you had followed my other blog, to follow this one, as well. For some reason, I am not able to put the Google Friend Connect on my side bar. If anyone has had the same issue and got it worked out, please let me know what I need to do. Until then, feel free to follow me on my Linky page or through RSS feed or email.
