Pink Roses, Friends and Fine China

The Traveling "paper" Art Doll Symposium's (TADS) Doll No. 4 aka Queenie had a delightful visit in California recently where she was the guest of honor at a garden tea party. Becky of Rebecca Rose Designs contributes this visual picture of elegance that would make the Queen herself blush with pride.

What could be more heavenly than afternoon tea with your best girls, in a garden sanctuary? I hear there are still places where fall has not yet managed to take a firm grip and warm, summer breezes linger still. I dream of fine china, pink roses and the scent of nostalgia as we reminisce of the events that have shaped our lives.

Henry James once wrote, "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

What better way to celebrate this moment with friends than with fancy hats, sweeping cotton dresses in floral prints and of course, our best bling. Come laugh with me over cucumber sandwiches, frosted cakes, and a spot of herb tea.

Thank you Becky for taking us on a guided journey to one of life's simple pleasures.

Hello Kitty,

Queenie is lovely in her fancy clothing for the afternoon tea. :0)

Old man winter showed up a few days ago but it's warmed up a bit and is beautiful out.

Hope you are staying warm and enjoying the season.

Hugs, Stephanie
