A productive day and afternoon tea


I found some lovely vintage white cotton sheeting on my thrifty search this week
I so love working with white cotton.

I had been asked by  my dear daughter,
Kerry Lee if she could have some of my handmade pillow cases
 for her birthday in October

I had a few already made for my Etsy shop,so thought more wouldn't go amiss
as I have lots of vintage lace in my collection as well as this vintage cotton.


I spent a lovely morning pressing and making and creating


The possibilities are endless 


Don't you just love vintage lace?

I made two cushions as well, one for me and one for Kerry Lee
I used transfers she bought off the internet. Key to my heart



Now all done,time for a welcome cuppa
The violet teacup set is a new favourite
especially as the violets are popping up their little heads in the garden.



I used my organza tea cloth with the mauve flowers.


This little creamer and sugar bowl,so sweet


And home made chocolate/mocca biscuits


MMMM, Delicious


Won't you join me, I'll just get another cup

I love your lovely vintage fabrics and laces. Those homemade biscuits look delicious. And the china you were using for afternoon tea was just so elegant :-)
