This week I have a special friend who has agreed to pose for photos in my garden.
This is the first time in 10 years that my friend Lou Ann has visited with her husband. We have had a great time. We have been friends since 1966 which is a long time ago.
Lou Ann and I met a long time ago when I went to a small Bible College in Des Moines, Iowa. I was 17 years old and she had just been married a couple months before. We became great friends and 2 years later she and her husband were in our wedding. That was just a few years ago - 1968!
Over the years we have enjoyed many
specials meals and moments together.
Our friends lived in Toronto for some
time and we enjoyed visits there.
I set up a little tea vignette out under the tree quickly as showers were threatening any moment.
My friend was tucked under the tree so even if it did rain - she would not have gotten wet. Yes, it did finally rain.
I have been cooking up a storm and last night I made a chocolate pie - like the Bishops Chocolate Pie. It has been fun to have more people to cook for!
Most of the pieces I am sharing today are English. I do love the yellow depression glass cream and sugar that my Grandmother gave me back in the late 70's. You might also notice the Victorian Plant Stand I had shared before with the china pieces on the top and lower area. Remember it was dark before when I shared it and now it is painted shabby chic. I really like it better!
