A Fairy Tea Party!



Our darling little Jessie is two
Joyeux Anniversaire ma chérie!
 
I was there for her Christening
which seems like only yesterday...
and again last year
when she was so cute at 18 months.




Today I am having an imaginary
tea party in my garden and I've
invited some lovely friends,
we would love you to join us too!

This is just the occasion to use great grandmother's
precious miniature tea set!

A party is just not a party without
a few treats!


Winnie the Pooh and friends
  Piglet, Christopher Robin, Tigger, 
Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and Roo
will be there too!


Today I'm joining
Mary at Mosaic Monday
Jann for Share your Cup Thursday

and the following Tea Parties

Terri for Tea Cup Tuesday
Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea
Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday
Kathy for A Return to Loveliness 
 
Thank you dear friends for popping to say hello!
 Merci à bientôt
be kind to one another!

Beautiful sweetheart - happy birthday little Jessie.
Your new header is lovely Shane, so delicate and pretty. Love the china tea set…and the illustration of the mice having tea - smiling - is really precious.

Have a great week dear - our snow is gone here and Spring must be on the way as I see little green shoots popping up here and there now!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

First - happy birthday to your little sweetheart! Second - when I saw the beautiful image of the wee mice having tea in the garden I went running to our bedroom to look at the framed card we've had ever since we were married wondering if it's by the same artist. Unfortunately the mat is covering the information I need to know...however I'm almost certain it's the same person. Absolutely adorable!!

kitty said...

Dearest Shane,
You do have some very lovely photos from special moments together... Guess we, because of separation by miles and oceans do TREASURE those moments far more than others that have the possibility for every day. We seal them into our hearts forever and keep those photos with happiness forever caught... HUGS to you!

Marilyn said...

I love imaginary tea parties in the garden and your tea party is extra special with a miniature tea set that belonged to your great-grandmother. How very special to share. I always smile when I see the picture of the mice having tea by the tea house cup. Oh to be sitting there having tea with the woodland creatures. I can dream and your pictures shared today help in the dreaming.
