a visit to the store

I found this cute little primrose at the grocery store the other day. It's called Obconica Primula. I've never seen one quite like it before with its frilly little leaves and candelabra stems. Cute. Cute.
Another "first," is this Tea Time magazine. Ohhhh, if you've not picked it up before, do! It has some lovely tea party ideas, yummy recipes, and beautiful decorating. I'll definitely search this magazine out again.... maybe even subscribe to it.
I often dream of having tea parties, or garden parties, with dreamy tables covered with lovely tablecloths flowing freely from the top of the table. And vases everywhere overflowing with peonies and lilacs. And no tea party would be complete without the perfect pitcher of lemonade or iced tea. I just know my little granddaughter and I will have lots of tea parties in our life time. Until then.... I can always dream.... and start planning!

Have a great day! Nancy

I just love primroses! Are you getting any signs of spring up there in the cold north?

I plan on having lots of tea parties with my grand daughter now that they are a little older. Miss Ginny is 4 and Miss Keira will be 2 in July. They both love to use Nana's pretties. Katie
