Garden Tea


Come join me in the garden for a cup of tea. I have prepared a little tray for you on top of the shabbiest of garden chairs. I'm using it as a table because the little table next to the chair is covered with magazines and books. All you have to do is pick up the tray and set it on your lap.



I have made you few cucumber sandwiches and a couple of sweet treats too. After a nice chat lets go over to visit Marty at A Stroll Thru Life and Terri and Martha too for Tea Cup Tuesday.

Bentley, remember when we started sanding those old garden chairs from your Grandma Lee's house at the lake?? I'm thinking about sanding them a bit more and just put a clear coat on, or shall I paint them??? Bentley, Bentley ... off chasing squirrels! I'll have to figure this one out on my own.

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  17. Your tea cup looks so pretty, is it a Royal Albert? All those delicate roses on it.
    The plate is very pretty too. I love how you have your tea set up in the wicker tray. Wonderful!

    Say Hello to Bentley for Emma and Betsy : )

  19. Hi Susan,
    You set a very Sweet Tea... I especially love old and new united... To take an age worn chair that has comforted to many in it's life and let it a part of a special tea party is "priceless"...
    I am new to my blog(learning all the steps) "please" take a peek and have tea with me also...
