So I continue my project of 
combining old and new table toppers with 
sewn chair covers I am making from
my grandmother's pillow cases to save
for a future garden

This table is about pink and purple!

My grandmother's pillow cases are working out well....cutting them up to make the back covers to drop over the folding chairs!
And using those old doilies to embellish
them with!

I love this bone china pattern:

The door is on the side
where people enter
the garden:


  1. Beautiful post!
    Happy Pink Saturday and
    enjoy the weekend.

  2. WOW!!! Such a beautiful post, beautiful tables, gorgeous setting.

  3. I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

    I ♥ that door! Gotta do one for me!

    Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

  4. Hello! I went back to see what I missed, I love your watch and the story. The foxglove! The Door! The Garden! The tea and vintage linens! So lovely in such a wonderful garden setting! Just love it!

  5. Oh, I forgot, I would be honored to sit in anyone of these chairs! Just please pour me a cup of tea and I will relax in your lovely garden! Doctors orders! Wish I could just fly out and be there!

  6. I love seeing all your beautiful vintage linens and how you have used them. Your teapots and china for table #2 are very pretty also.
