My cottage home and gardens are a real blessing to me! I find peace and contentment here in a sometimes very fast paced world. I welcome you, dear friends. My friendly scarecrow that stands in my garden welcomes you, too! I thought it would be fun to have an autumn tea today. I have a cozy chair waiting for you here but let's pull it closer to the fire so you can feel its warmth. Peter Rabbit is hiding in Farmer McGregor's fall vegetable garden. However, I think I hear Mother Rabbit calling him. She wants him to put on one of the sweaters she has knitted him for the cooler weather. Besides Peter, you also see a cute little pumpkin and one of my favorite handpainted china teacups just for you. I love my Autumn Blessings painting. The little girl is sitting on a pumpkin while eating her apple. My little witch wanted to come to the party, too, but she is totally friendly, no bad spells here! I would like to offer one of my pink ghost sugar cookies to go along with your tea. (Ghost cookies picture is courtesy of Kathleen at "Gonna Want Seconds" http://gonnawantseconds.blogspot.com/ Thank you, Kathleen) The next picture shows a favorite painting, teapot and teacup that sits on the armoire in my living room. The rose is from my garden where the roses will bloom until mid to late November. The white bench is in my living room and holds some of my favorite things: a pillow, vintage embroidery, handpainted rose lamp, and a tea cup. I also like to include a vintage image in my posts. I couldn't resist this little Halloween boy.
I am participating in two special events this week: "Tea Things Tuesday" hosted by Kim at "Shabby, Pink and Pretty". Thank you, Kim; and "Show Your Cottage Monday" hosted by Cielo at "The House in the Roses". Thank you, Cielo.
