Summer's Day Tea

On a beautiful summer's day, sitting on the porch swing
sipping tea and reading a magazine sounds pretty inviting,
doesn't it?  Of course, you might need some iced tea in your tea cup!

This pretty rose tea cup is made by Homer Laughlin.

A Teatime Victoria magazine always has lots of inspiration!

Aren't these miniature pink roses so cute?

The quilt blocks were pieced by me in high school, and my Grandma
quilted it for me.  I used scraps of material from the dresses and clothes
my Mom had made for me when I was little.  I had a shirt out of
this Holly Hobby print- isn't it so sweet? 
And here is an encouraging verse I found to share with you as well~
Shout for joy, O heavens;
rejoice, O earth;
burst into song, O mountains!
For the LORD comforts his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
Then you will know that I am the LORD;
those who hope in me will not be disappointed.
Isaiah 49:13,23
~I am joining Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday again today~


  1. You've made a cozy spot on the swing for tea and to browse a Victoria magazine. I recognized Holly Hobby right away, the quilt looks lovely and full of memories.

  2. A perfect tea for a summer day! Love your quilt! Years ago my Mom made me a wool patchwork quilt out of my high school skirts. I treasure it so and it is so comfy in winter.

  3. Wonderful spot for tea. Love your quilt. I really like Homer Laughlin. I think having tea on the porch swing sounds like the perfect way to start -- or end -- the day! Happy Tea Day!

  4. Hi Carmen,
    What a darling quilt filled with memories. I love it, and isn't it so special! Your teacup is really pretty and I love your swing. Thank you, my friend, for coming to tea and also for sharing the piece of scripture. Happy Summer!
