Afternoon Tea

Come with me by the side of the house.  There is a nice quiet spot to enjoy the loveliness of the afternoon.






I found this sweet mug at Goodwill.  It sent my heart pitter patter.  These lovely leaf plates were a perfect companion.

 The wall of Jasmines offer their incence of fragrance.


A  perfect spot for afternoon tea.

You caught my eye when I saw your title "Afternoon Tea"! I had to stop by and say Hi!
I love that mug too! I think your leaf plate and your napkin go so well together. A nice way to spend an afternoon!
Blessings My Friend,

It would be wonderful to sit out there with the jasmine and have some tea. I'd choose iced tea. :)

I just posted Nancy's Kitchen Tour. She's an old blog friend of mine...I hope you can visit. :)

Vlessings, Jocelyn - so joyful to be back in Blogland posting on - what I am hoping to be - a regular pattern. Teatime is always my favorite. It is filled with such lovely ladies and glorious inspiration - such as the verse on your tea mug! Yes - that is my motto these days as my career path is taking yet another turn. Career path turns in mid-life are always fraught with trepidation. TRUST is the remedy. Teatime - and trusting in the Lord. Thank you for the thought this morning. Joy!

I've always had an affinity for tucked away spots in the yard. I think that it al evolved from reading The Secret Garden as a child. You've created a lovely sanctuary for a quite conversation on a summer afternoon. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

I wish I truly could enjoy a spot of tea with you by the side of your house. We'll have to settle with virtual enjoyment.

Hi! Came across your post over at Lavender Garden Cottage blog hop. Love this cozy spot you have for afternoon tea! I love your table! I'm curious where you got it, as it looks just like the one I purchased last year at Kohl's! I also shop at Goodwill all the time and come across great finds, like the mug you discovered there!! So much fun to find a good deal there! I started following you sweet blog, too! Have a blessed week!
If you get a chance, check out my two blogs!
