Tea and such............

We had our fundraiser tea for Anna, we had alot of fun with it. It was a "vintage" tea, so costumes and decorations were very fun..................

Do not come to tea too early, you may catch people in their work clothes, not looking
ready for tea at all!!!
All the early work getting done, and tea room is ready.........

Each table was just a little bit different.......this one was shades of green with green glass plates, an old feed sack with an old sifter holding the pansies..........


This table had pink plates, an old tin tea box holding the pansies that sat upon
an antique doily................

This table was my mothers old Franciscan "Wild Rose" dishes, which was fun since they are authentically vintage and that is my mothers vase holding the pansies.....

My mothers aprons and my little dresses!!!! How cute is that!!!


Decorating was fun as I have alot of my mothers things from the 40's - 50's......


Usually at the end of the hall right here, we put lattice up to hide all the pews back there. Well that lattice finally got put on my front porch!! LOL. Sooooo, I had to brainstorm about what to do........voila!! Vintage tablecloths.....that is the whole reason this became a vintage tea...it all started with these tablecloths and what a fun theme it was!!!

We had lots of helpers.....................
Here is Anna and her friend Becka Delery


This is Anna Daniels and Daisy Marsden, they helped with serving.....

Anna had a corner set up with a display of her England trip, with a map and some souvenirs and her pictures along with two letters she has written about what God is doing in her lilfe right now.


We did get some things made to sell and had a little store set up in the back corner, we did very well actually, sold quite a few things............

Anna was happy to sit and take peoples money!!! :)

Jenny Marsden also helped with serving and she also played the piano for the ladies which they thouroughly enjoyed.
Ladies enjoying tea...................
The tea was done, everyone enjoyed themselves and Anna raised some money for her trip......all in all I would say that was a successful day!!
ON ANOTHER NOTE...................
So, we were just ready to mow our lawn for the first time and the lawn mower broke!!! So, our kind neighbor, Nate, came and mowed it for us...................

This is pretty fun to have all that green right out our front door. See the dirt on the other side of the fence?? That is what it looked like before where the grass is!!

Just keeping warm on a nippy spring morning.....................
