Tea by the New Shed


Hello Sweet Tea Friends

How are you all? It's been a very long year with the restrictions due to the pandemic. I've missed you all. I have also missed my wonderful visits to the cottage.  I haven't been there  for over a year now. 

Hubby and I have been working hard at home on Pandemic Projects and last fall he completed the shed  that I have always wanted.

We purchased a used louvered closet door and hubby then cut it to the window size to make shutters. I happily painted them pale pink and added pretty rose appliques.

All sheds need lace curtains too, right?

Now I have somewhere to store all of my lawn furniture and patio cushions.

My daughter gave me the pink roses for Mother's Day.💗

I've had my first vaccination and am eager to receive my second.  I'm feeling hopeful that the border will re-open soon.

If not, I will stay home and enjoy my flowers and garden here again  this summer.

Have you had any Pandemic Projects?

Thank you for stopping by dear friends!

Take care!

Serena for Tea Time


 Hello Dear Tea Friends

I hope that you are all staying  safe and well.

I thought a Serena Tea Time may help improve your spirits.  Pink china always makes me happy.

I am so pleased that the hot pink roses are still blooming in the front garden to make our tea time cheery. ❤

I was so fortunate to find another Serena Royal Albert Teacup and tea plate at our local Salvation Army this week. I am gradually adding to my collection of this pretty pattern.

This is my favourite shape of Royal Albert teacup.  I believe it is called Malvern.

This shape has the roses on the inner cup.

What is your favourite shape of Royal Albert teacup?

I found these pretty pink macaroons at Winners/Home Sense this week.  They are very sweet and rich but so tasty.  I had always wanted to try them and so I splurged.  

Do you have a certain china pattern that you are searching for?

Thank you for stopping by today.

Take care Dear Tea Friends,

A Busy Summer!

Hello Sweet Tea Friends

It has been a busy summer and I have lots of news to share.

  My sweet daughter is engaged and we are so thrilled.

Last month I had a small family get together to celebrate Rachel and John's Engagement.  (Unfortunately Covid limits all large social gatherings.)

It was a beautiful and warm day and so exciting.

It was such fun to decorate.

 I tried to social distance the seating arrangements as much as possible.

It was so very hot outside that I set up the dining room table for food.
(I wish I'd taken a pic of the food.  Lol. - too busy)

The Happy Couple

Me and the wee grand children.  I love them so! 💜

Grandpa and our precious grandson playing in the fountain.

The Family 💗

My son and his wife and children all dressed in their matching clothes from Indonesia.

Not only have we been busy celebrating but we are also building a shed.  I have always wanted a She-Shed.  It hopefully will eventually look like one on the outside ~ but on the inside it will store all of hubby's tools.  I will post more pics as it continues to progress.

Hubby also added this colonial screen door to keep the mosquitoes out.

This summer has been a very different time for us all.  We stayed home because we were unable to cross the border to go to the cottage in Birch Bay ~ so keeping busy has helped us to occupy our time constructively.

  Last night my kind and darling daughter surprised met with these gorgeous pink roses.  They are my favourite colour. 💝

Isn't family is so very important during these difficult times?

I hope that you are also able to see your family and friends during this challenging pandemic.

Stay Safe and Healthy My Tea Friends.
