Anticipation and Relaxation ~

Hubby and I are going to enjoy a weekend with my daughter and her family and I can't wait. Daughter, granddaughter and I will go to an Afternoon Victorian Tea at the Holly Hotel on Saturday from 2-5 pm.

"Three elegant courses are served on antique china and steaming hot imported tea is served in fancy silver and ceramic pots. First course is served warm, consisting of English-style scones and muffins with Devonshire cream and flavored butters. Second course arrives in minutes with petite tea sandwiches, quiches and canapes. Third course is a *sweets* course of fruit, pastries, cakes or tortes. Our pastry chef arrives early each morning to bake for tea and select starched white linens and fresh flowers for each table."

Looking so forward to getting out one of my pretty outfits and getting all dressed up for this special occasion.
I am posting a few photos from around my home today. The first photo is of a round picture frame that I purchased at the Goodwill store a while ago and I added an old photograph. I also have a smaller frame exactly like this larger one...love them ~
Wishing you all a blessed weekend. I may not be posting again until Sunday or Monday since I will be out playing. We are going to Home Goods on the way up (and maybe on the way back too...LOL) I would also like to go to the Michaels store and I am sure we will hit some thrift stores as well. I am filled with anticipation...
Blessings~

Sandi,
Savor every moment and every delectable morsel...a town we lived in years ago had the neatest tea room...we often met there...Brenda supplied stunning hats for each lady and fur stoles....a resident cat greeted each lady as she came up the steps....

Show us pictures, please...Betty
