This is my first set of table linens that I have finished and hope you use for some "tea in the garden" posts.  My garden isn't very impressive but I plan to enjoy it just the same.  I also am hoping to give a benefit tea in my garden sometime in the future and use the sets.

These chair linens are of course, more
work than I had thought they would 

It takes time for a garden to
develop.  I hope some wonderful
friendships develop through
Afternoon Tea here and that 
will take time too.


  1. These sure look good. Must try them one of these days.

  2. Oh these muffins do sound good. I'll bet they are especially good with a brisk cuppa. I love the beehive tea set as well.
    I have to tell you that your back yard has really turned out beautifully and those chair covers are a wonderful idea. Thanks for the inspirations!

  3. I always love to try a new muffin recipe!

    Thank you for sharing,

  4. Love marmalade on muffins. Thanks for the head's up on Well Preserved.

  5. Sounds delicious! What a wonderful title for the cookbook. Thanks for sharing. It's a lovely post.

    Hope to see you at my place for a Blue Rooster Monday. ~ Hyacinth

  6. Oh, this was a sweet post, in many ways, but for me: Morning Glory Muffins! For my sister name is Gloria and I always say Morning Glory! I need to find her something with morning Glories On it. Perhaps a tea cup, or tea pot! Then see if she can come and have Morning Glory Muffins! I love it! You have the loveliest idea! Always!

  7. Looks like a lovely book and the muffins sound delicious.

  8. Oh those muffins look yummy! I'll have to give them a try.

    Thanks for sharing!


  9. The Morning Glories sound yummy! Don't you just love cook books? Have a beautiful week, Bernideen...Kathy

  10. Hello there, you have such a wonderful site - I always enjoy my visit here. I especially like your comment about picking up the book "Well Preserved" and taking a trip to Cape Cod...I'm right there with you! And you are 'keeping Joan's memory alive' by sharing her recipes and stories.

    I'm living in Georgia now but grew up in Miami, Florida: my folks moved to Miami (in 1946) from Worcester, Mass (very Irish - both of their parents were from Ireland) kids from Florida, we would spend some summers with our Massachusetts cousins, visiting Cape Cod, Boston, and Provincetown.

    Your wonderful site just sparked many fond memories - of jumping in the icy-cold water and trying out all those seafood dishes. Thank you so much for making my day!

    Because of tight budgets, we stayed in town this summer, but thanks to you, I took a 'memory' vacation was great!

    Thank you,

  11. Thanks for posting this! It looks pretty good for what I was hoping to find!
