Time for tea...wear your hat!

These are pictures of my oldest granddaughter
Allysha Lynn
when she went to a tea earlier this summer.
{11 years old}

Isn't she just adorable in her vintage hat? If memory serves me correctly, she found
it at a resale shop and loved it.

I think I may have a teesny chance with
this granddaughter loving vintage items like me.
I hope so...keeping my fingers crossed...
oh okay, I am really, really
wishing on a star! *smile*

I thought I would share a favorite tea time
sandwich that I have used a lot over the
years and it gets rave reviews.

Cream Cheese, Celery and Walnut Sandwiches

1/4 lb cream cheese, room temperature 1/4 celery heart, very finely chopped
1/4 cup diced walnuts
White or whole wheat bread
Parsley sprigs {for garnish}

In a small bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Mix in celery and walnuts. Make sandwiches with
cheese mixture. Trim off crusts of bread and
cut sandwiches into rectangles or triangles.
Garnish plate with sprigs of parsley.
{I also make these open faced on small bread squares
like the *party rye*, but I use sourdough I think }

It is rather warm here again today and supposed to be
warmer tomorrow. I did get to town and purchased
some paint so hopefully I can start painting my
pantry area soon. Have wanted to do that for quite
some time now. What are you doing this week?


We have a wedding anniversary this week...our 33rd.
I can't believe it. Where have the years gone?
We have most certainly have had
our ups and downs and spats just like anyone else,
but God is good and He has been so good to us.
Wouldn't trade my man for the moon! :)

My oldest son also has a 7th wedding anniversary
today. He posted this on facebook...I thought
it was cute:

*‎7 years ago today, I married the woman of dreams...
woke up this morning and, to my delight, she was still there!*

He makes me laugh, makes me proud and is a delightful son.
I wish them many more wonderful years together!!
