Nap Time

Hello everyone,
Summer is off to a wonderful start.  June has been a fun month for Sweetheart and I. We have been resting more now that our update is complete. I'm still adding some details to the master bedroom and blogging about my garden.
But I needed a day to retreat from the daily duties and I fixed myself a tray and some tea and toast for my nap time. I slipped into my guest room for some 
I picked a rose from each of my favorite rose bushes and put them in my angel vase.  I found a new tea cup at the antique store and couldn't resist the beautiful green inside the tea cup and saucer.
While at the antique store I found a vintage toast holder. I couldn't resist this sweet tea time toast holder.
My grandma's vintage silver butter knife and tea spoon.
I lathered the cinnamon raisin toast with butter and it's so delicious.
The sweet cup has a beautiful green trim inside the cup and little flowers on the outside.
The sweet flower pattern is also on the inside of the tea cup. 
The name of the tea cup is new to me.

Hope you have a great week and thanks for visiting today.
