At the end of a rainy day...


Nothing beats a hot cup of tea in your favorite chair...


That is unless you throw in a couple of great magazines...

yes that is a fall issue I am a little behind in my reading


Then if you add a slice of banana creme cake with a little whipped on the side...
Mmmmmm, just perfect...*happy sigh*


I love these cute little Beatrix Potter fork and spoon set my MIL gifted to lil Sara...They are just the right size for mummy to borrow for a tea time :)..The blue napkin also courtesy of my MIL...I love how the color complements my Homer Laughlin cup and dishes..

All served on one of my favorite thrift store finds...My $7 wooden TV tray that will one day become a white shabby TV tray...


And I can't forget my favorite snugly blanket...

So please pull up a comfy chair and join me, we can chit-chat about the weather and such things...

Please stop by and visit my other blog Lost Homes of Levy Co ...
If you love country and you love old things, you do not want to miss this.

Blessings Kelsie

Hi Kelsie,
Your tea looks very cozy and the bunny silverware is simply darling! I'm sure your daughter loves it! Banana Cream Cake; yummy! Perhaps you will send some of the rain our way! We are getting still more snow. The snow storm is just getting underway here. I am so looking forward to Spring!! Thanks for coming to tea and enjoy your day.
