Mother Goose Tea Time

Hello everyone, 
I can't believe it's March already. 
February went by so fast. With only 28 days in
the month, my blog was put on the back burner for 
a couple of weeks. As I was saying in my last post
 about taking better care of myself.  HERE
I finished 2016 income tax preparation for our accountant.
I started the SilverSneaker® Fitness program offered
 by most Humana Medicare plans at my local gym. 
And between the days of rain and sunny days
I had a gardener blow three pick-up truck loads of
leaves and tree trimmings. 
Now it's the first week of March, and I am ready to enjoy 
a cup of tea and gaze at my spring blooming daffodils.
Today I took my tea party outside to the patio.
I picked different daffodil blooms from my garden 
to arrange the bouquet in my Mother Goose vase. 
Blue and white tea cups are perfect companions to
yellow and white spring flowers. My little blue and 
white creamer and vintage spoons are essentials for tea time. 
The geese napkin rings add a sweetness to my tea time.
I love the different varieties of daffodils.  I found a website with
the Daffodil Types I have in this bouquet. HERE 

While shopping at the thrift store, I found this small quilt with
a vintage pattern with white, blue and some yellow print.
This Saturday we are having a family reunion to celebrate my husband's
75th birthday. All the granddaughters will be here for our annual 
photo shoot.  We are having our famous Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner
and Lemon Meringue pie and a  flaming birthday cake. LOL!!
My granddaughter came over last week and helped me put the table leaves in
the big heavy table. We found the large tablecloth, and she ironed 16 linen napkins,
 plus washed the inside of the dining room windows.  
What a blessing it is to have a young helper.

Thank you for visiting, and I have a
March Garden Journal coming soon.

    How lovely that your granddaughter was able to come over to help you prepare for the Big Birthday Bash, I hope you all have a wonderful time.
    Nice to have your company for MM again this week.

  2. Betty, You created a lovely tea time. I love the blue and white dishes and I was really happy to see the Nordic teacup and saucer. I was given some pieces of this dishes but the teacups. I am on the hunt and now I know what they look like. I love the geese napkin rings. I hope thei birthday party goes well. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

  3. Blue and white with yellow. Perfect. My daffodils are so close to blooming......... It we can just through this cold and snowy weekend they should bloom for me........

  4. Love the yellow daffodils in the white duck. Beautiful with your blue and white china.

  5. What a charming tea setting! You cute geese made me smile.

  6. Such a spring inspiring vignette!!! I just love it! As I sit here with a couple of inches of new fallen snow, I am jealous of your daffodils. How nice to share this with your granddaughter. Good for you for joining silver sneakers and taking more time to take care of yourself.

  7. Betty, what a lovely tea setting! I love blue and white china and yellow flowers, so I would've felt right at home.

  10. Dear Betty:
    Such lovely spring like photos and colors! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Such sweetness - I love the pitcher - and the napkin rings - and the daffodils and the blue and white tea service. Just the thing for spring. We are still having blustery, rainy winds here in the Pacific Northwest - but the bulbs are shooting up - should have flowers soon.

  12. Beautiful daffodils that look great with your blue and white teacups. Darling geese container and napkin rings too.
    I loved your happy and cheerful tea party.
