Cindy, I wish you could have come to tea with me at the tea room, too! We really should have gone while I was still in day, my day when I am back visiting we have to make sure we meet up! And, yes, you must take your sweet hubby up on tea at the Ritz! I have not been to the Ritz but have heard it is wonderful. I did go to tea at The Willard and loved it! You might enjoy some of my Sencha green teas...I really like them because the flavor stands out so nicely in them. :)

Khaliah, you are so right...we created some of the most treasured memories working together at the tea room. As I'm thinking about all those special teatimes, I realize that I do wish we had taken more videos of the teatimes. What a treat that would be to have today! But, I do have many, many pictures and love that I can close my eyes and still hear all those giggles from the guests as they had such fun! Truly a blessing to share that with my mom and granny!

Thank you, Cindy! I had fun doing a little decorating! :) Now, I've got to start thinking about what I want to do for Christmas...change it up a little from last year. I had planned to do more glittered pumpkins but just didn't get around to it. I thought that was such a neat idea, too.

Thursday, October, 21st, 2010 I have so many memories from the sweet teatimes that took place at my tea room when it was open. I loved working with my mom and granny as we prepared all the little details for each tea party. The kitchen was filled with lots of laughter, chatter, and bustling around those stainless steel tables. And, yes, there were times when we wondered if we could possibly get it all done in time for that first teatime. But, somehow, it all came together each time, and the guests left with smiles on their faces and treasured... Continue reading

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 I recently added this new bar necklace to the shoppe (and, to my Etsy shoppe) and wanted to share a few close up pictures with you here. I love how versatile this necklace is. The bar necklace may be purchased alone, or it may be purchased as it is seen here with the large pendant and coordinating beads. It looks beautiful with any of the various pendants from my shoppe...large or small! It just shows off the pendant so pretty...really makes it a focal point! Although the ensemble above may be purchased just as it is,... Continue reading

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010 Well, we finally got some pumpkins!! I kept telling mom that the month was just flying by, and we really needed to get our porch looking festive and fallish! She totally agreed so we grabbed a few big and little pumpkins one day and got busy decorating the frront porch. We added a little glitter fashion to one and plan on decorating a few more. I was getting rather tired after that first one. Let me tell you, I had black glitter allover my white coat....yep, wasn't happy about that! Well, I suppose I looked rather... Continue reading

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 I know...looks like me, right??!! haha It's Tucker here coming to you live from LA...of course, I mean "lower Alabama"! :) My mom and Poppy went to Alexandria, Virginia during the summer, and I knew I had to post about some of the cool stuff they came across during their time strolling around Old Town. You may remember that Alexandria was our home before moving to Alabama. My mom snapped the picture of this cute guy in a new shop in Old Town, The Dog Park. My mom was drawn to this store because she was... Continue reading

And, I'm gonna share this one because it is one of my mom's favorite photos! She loves this pretty cottage window! This picture was also taken on that same trip to California as they took time to check out a few shops... Continue reading

Monday, October 4th, 2010 I enjoyed meeting up with my girlfriends the other weekend so we could celebrate Heather's birthday and enjoy a girly movie and yummy food at one of our favorite restaurants. We always have such fun when we get together. We decided we better meet for the movie first because we often miss out on our movie plans if we have dinner before...we start chatting and giggling, and before you know it...the movie has already started! We went to see You Again, and it was soooo funny! I strongly suggest that you do NOT even consider trying... Continue reading

Thursday, September 9th, 2010 This is one of my favorite pictures, and since I want Thursdays to be the day I share something that "tealights" me...well, this one will do just fine for today! This horse is such a beauty; I'll share some other shots all along of him, as well as, some of the other horses that belong to friends of our family. I've shared a few other pictures of them, as I have the best time grabbing my camera and running out the door when I see them prancing about in the pasture during my trips home. There's...
