Lilac Spring Tea Time

Hello everyone,
We have had a rainy month in April. The garden is blooming, and my Lilac
bush gave me a bouquet of beautiful blossoms.  I am working on my 2018
calendar and I have chosen one of these photos for the month of April.
The cups are "Shelley."
Primrose Chintz
I found this adorable blue and yellow chintz teacup at a thrift store. 
I love to style my tea time photos
This green Shelley teacup was a gift from a friend. She inherited the teacup from her father,
and when he passed away, I became the new owner.
A little flower vase was another thrift store find.
Fabulous stacked teacups ready to save to my Pinterest board.
Hope you enjoyed the Lilac Spring Tea Time.
Next week I hope to be in the garden and styling another
tea time with the beautiful roses blooming on the
Thank you for visiting,
