Cottage Style Party & A Garden Tea Party

Please join me for a garden tea...

It was a lovely summer day for a tea party in the garden.

I was in a peachy mood so I pulled out all the peach I have including flowers!

I love this peach lustreware cream and sugar.

It works so well with the peach daylilies!

I found this little cloche at a thrift store but haven't found a plate to put under it yet.
Still, I think it works without a plate here.

Mix and match on the plates and tea cups always looks so cottage home.

It's such a lovely summer day I think I'll linger a bit.

More tea please!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party


Can you believe it is August already?

Do you know what August means to me?

World's Longest Yard Sale!

It's this weekend and I will be there on Friday and possibly Saturday if the money holds out.
{don't count on SaturdayI always spend it all on Friday!}

I'll try to remember to take lots of photos and share them with you here at the party.

I have plans to live tweet the show but, yep, I get too excited with all the good junk and forget.

You can follow me here on Twitter: @lavendergardenc

but I can't guarantee many tweets!

Let's get this party started.

I love the touch of whimsy in this rose garden!
Can you believe all those gorgeous roses?
And those silly boots! 

Stop by Brooke's blog Creative Country Mom to see more of her gorgeous roses. 
And don't miss her Tuesday Garden Party!

Did someone say sparkle?
I just love these old napkin rings and crystal knife rests!
So sparkly!

It looks like Patti over at 
Ivy and Elephants has a new obsession! And its sparkly!
Hop on over to get a peek of her goodies!
While you're there…join the What's It Wednesday blog party!

I want to stay in this guest room!
Can you believe that old wood ceiling?
The chandelier? The ruffled spread?

I'm about to swoon right on top of that lovely bed!
Visit Heather's blog The Heathered Nest to see the moldy before picture and the details of this charming guest room!
