Tea Time in Romantic England-Tablescape # 65

Hello Everyone, 
Good Monday to y'all. If you are a new visitor or a follower, you know I love to pretend. My favorite pretending is with tea parties and my love for the United Kingdom and France. This weekend was so beautiful in the garden I decided to have tea in (my) Downton Abbey garden.

The beautiful pink roses with a splash of naked lady lilies are so romantic in my vintage vase. 
When I arrived I had my hat and gloves and in my purse I brought my calling card.
The small white table was set with a pink and white flowered tea pot and two dainty pink and white tea cups and saucers. A vintage tea spoon was on hand to use for sugar and cream.  
The garden was trimmed ready for late summer blooms.  

The angel  watching over 'My Cozy Corner's ' garden

With the assistance of Bliss Victoria I was able to pretend for just a little while I was in Romantic England.
I was Inspired by the wonderful series of Downton Abbey and a peek inside the beautiful Highclere Castle and see the fabulous Gardens.  
A Return to Loveliness for sure. 
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed your journey.

  22. Betty, this spot looks exactly like England! Your beautiful flowers remind me so much of the tiny gardens full of blooms there. Your tea set is lovely - wish we could all fly away to the British Isles, right now!!

  23. Dear Betty,
    I am right there with you! Pretending to be in England...next best thing to being there. I hope you have seen Susan Branch's book about her trip to Merry Ole. You will just love it.
    Your hat is divine-and the gloves, of course. I remember the hat came from the basket you won. What a great treat that was. You won Little Women too and our blog has a little story about my trip there this summer you might enjoy. http://www.ladybstimefortea.blogspot.com
    Have a wonderful "trip", Ruthie :)
