Butterfly Meadow Tea Time

Hello everyone,
I've had a busy week. I took the written test to renew my drivers licence for another five years. The next time I will take the test I will be 78 years old. Ouch! There were 18 questions and I missed two.
As a reward for passing I treated myself to a new tea set. My birthday is Tuesday June 3rd and I've wanted this tea set for years. 
Happy Birthday to me. Now you know the rest of the story.
I have no secrets from my blog friends. LOL
Lenox 'Butterfly Meadow' 7 piece tea set. 
My tabletop has turned into a sun-soaked butterfly haven! From my breakfast table to my tea table. This gently scalloped tea set will brighten my tablescape with a yellow and blue butterfly pattern fluttering above vibrant florals.
Delicate details are so sweet.
A little lady bug in the tea cup.
Two soft yellow napkins from my favorite store
 (Tuesday Morning) One napkin in the tea cup and one in the tray.

A butterfly on the tea pot lid♥
Soft pink flowers on the sugar and creamer and a pink flower bud as the handle for the sugar bowl. 
A wonderful spot to sit in the morning and drink a cup of tea. Watching the sun rise and listening to the birds sing...
Over the past seven years since retiring I've collected several pieces of 'Butterfly Meadow' dinnerware. I found the dinner plates at a consignment store and the mugs at Tuesday Morning. The coffee pot was on sale at Macy's. The purchase of the coffee pot started
this journey to complete this beautiful table setting.

  5. A Very Happy Birthday to you, Betty! You gifted yourself with a very sweet tea set. I love all the little adornments like the ladybug, the butterflies, and the rose bud!

    Happy birthday to you. I hope it's a day filled to overflowing with love and joy and that it marks the beginning of a wonderful new year of life.

    Congrats on the renewed driver's license. Where I live, to renew, you don't have to take a test. At least that's how it was when I renewed 2 years ago.
