so, what's a girl to do on yet another dreary summer day? why, head to La Conner of course!
the weather was no better up north but,
here at La Conner Flats in the barn behind this produce building was some indoor sunshine!
our knitting group, high tea and a birthday party!
my first of many cups of warm tea ~ perfect on a drizzly northwest afternoon
the tables were sweetly set with vintage mismatched china and green depression glass ~ be still my heart ~ and pretty little vases of fresh dahlias everywhere
my very first high tea is starting out well!
each course was prepared while we were enjoying the one before
and everything was fresh and delicious and perfect
as soon as one plate was finished, the teapots were replenished and the next course appeared
it was wonderful to get to spend the day with these women I rarely get to see
this room was filled to the rafters with talent
Sherry, you looked spendid in your chartreuse shawl
and the happiest happiest of birthdays to you, Joanne ~ you have the Queen Mum's wave down to a 't'
thanks to Joanne's English Setter (I think I got the breed right?) for making an appearance ~ what girlie tea party is complete without a pup named DIVA !?! isn't she a pretty girl ;)
also, a special thanks to Linda and Val for planning this memorable get-together and inviting me along for the fun! I had a wonderful day, despite this darn rain! ~ Melissa
