Ann's Tea Room 11-29-2014

Happy Accident

When I first printed this, I noticed that the ink did not cover the parts of the fabric that were over printed by the manufacturer.  I thought about turning the fabric over to reprint 'clean'.  However, I decided this lacy look was perfect for my tea room.

The chairs and table are covered with an assortment of old linens:  Nana's hand embroidered pillow cases, odd lace curtain [also used one on the entrance], place mats sewn together, and other old pieces I never use.  Fun to get them out.  I think a young lady like Morgandy is just the person to enjoy this.  She also gave the opinion that the hand embroidered pieces looked hand made, but the lace on the chair looked like it was machine made.  She is just learning to hand sew with her mother.  She appreciates hand made things more than machine made.

The Menu

Morgandy Reading the Menu

She will be 6 on January 23, 2015.  As a kindergarten student, she could read most of the menu.  She was quite serious about the menu.  Her father does her hair. I love these young guys who are active parents.  It is so much fun to watch. I started taking care of her when she was a few days old.  I am used to seeing her every day.  This interruption for school is sometimes hard to take.  Like most children now-a-days, her life is also filled with classes and other extracurricular activities.  Love vacations because she is around a lot more.

This of course, was her favorite part.  She also likes the Camomile Tea better than the Afternoon Tea. She often comes over for a simple tea in a mug and a little snack.  All occurring at my kitchen counter.  This was a fun treat for both of us.  She was stuffed, but wanted to finish the plate.    I fixed the rest in a take-away for her.  She was happy with that.

Hope you all have someone special you can pamper once in a while.  This was soo much fun!  Took me back to Tea Parties my daughter and I used to have with a stuffed animal [s] and/or a doll [s].
