Kammy, I love your outdoor tea. The quilt is so beautiful, and I love the purple, green and yellow colors you've used this week. I've been seeing a lot of that beehive stuff around lately and I always thought it was so cute.

Tell Gunner that Lucy says hello!

Oh Kammy, I so love your picnic tea party. I would really enjoy that. I love to be outdoors. Your beehive teapot and your gorgeous plates are just stunning. Love it all. BTW I do think we will have another cloche party in Sept., so start thinking. I am totally out of ideas and totally in awe of all the beautiful things everyone was showing. Hugs, Marty

Everything looks so inviting! I love the bright colors. Your faux flowers are really pretty. I thought they were real.

Lorna ~ Lace and Ivy Cottage said...

Hi Kammy, The moment your pictures appeared on my screen, they put a smile on my face! What happy colors. I just love the yellow and purple, and that is one cute teapot!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh Kammy, this is SO beautiful... all of it (especially your adorable visitors!). But I REALLY love that amethyst-handled flatware. Wherever did you get them?

thanks for visiting ... and an empty cupboard because I hung the pots? Oh I wish! My stuff apparently makes whoopee in the cupboards overnight, and in the morning, has re-populated itself.

It's a miracle, I think.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. It may take me a little while to get to the sewing as I am about to do a little travelling (but I do like to have projects in the pipeline). I love your outdoor picnic! Tea outside is so civilized. Those amethyst handles are lovely and the bee hive teapot is charming! I love sharing my finds with others who have caught the thrifting bug.

Jo said...

I love the beehive teapot! I have never seen one like it ...Jo

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh I will bring the lemonade and croquet set! Such beauty.

The donkey is so adorable!

Karen said...

Great job! What a nice setting. Makes you want to just plunk down and relas!
Love the donkey!

Gwen said...

I really like those cabbage plates and it all works so well together. It makes me smile:)

Gotta love the doggie helper. I have to cut out so many paws and tails when I am taking shots, so I can relate.

Kathryn @ Bonafide Southern said...

I love our tea party! That little bee hive tea pot is just the cutest. I also love that you've used a quilt as a tablecloth.

Bonnie said...

Hi Kammy! Thanks for stopping over at cottage hideaway, and for your kind comment. It's so nice to meet you!
Your site is beautiful, and I must read more about your furry friends! Also loved what you did with black paint but don't know if I have the courage yet...

Good grief, this is fabulous, Kammy! The colors, textures and designs are just perfect for the outdoor setting.

And that Mr. Grady Tucker is pretty darn cute too! Geeez, I don't dare let my daughter see him or she'll want one! :)
