Today I set a little table up for you in my Beatrix Potter Tea Garden.....I took this picture through my screen window from the upstairs!  This is a big deal to me to have
the garden go across the back yard and sides
as I have been working ton this for a long
time and now it is one year old.

Miss Tabitha, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Mr. Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck all were celebrating the arrival of a new birdbath in
the garden!

Some little mice scampered about for a drink of the cool water...it's going to be hotter today for sure!

I have 24 total chair backs covers - made from my grandmother's old pillowcases on which I have sewn old doilies.....These 4 are in purples.....I will be showing you all of them next month!


  1. What a beautiful setting for a fairy tale tea party. I love anything having to do with Beatrix Potter. I admire her artwork so!

  3. Hi Bernideen! I always look forward your Tuesday teas! I am so in love with your chair back covers! What a great idea for vintage linens. I hope you're having a wonderful week!


  4. What a magical place your Beatrix Potter tea garden is. You created a very lovely tea setting. I just love your chair back covers; they are very beautiful. The new birdbath is very cute. In short, everything is just adorable.

  5. Those chair covers are just devine! What a fantastic idea. But isn't it hard to start cutting into those beautiful doilies! It feels like such a risk to take, but when you see the results... Just lovely.

  6. Hello Bernideen,
