We woke up an hour late and my hubby had to dash into the shower and get dressed for work in 20 minutes. What a special way to start the day, ummmm not!
I just finished the tea cozy in the background, it is hand crazy pieced, with hand quilting. The only machine work was to assemble the front to the back. I made it from leftover bits and pieces of vintage feed sack cloth, that I had used to make my pincushions that I sell on Etsy.
The teapot was a gift from two dear old English friends that I worked with at the Broadway, many many years ago. I found the lovely little cup and saucer at the thrift store where I also found this lovely embroidered table runner.
I found these darling little Bridge cards on ebay. These came in the original box, with the place cards and the Bridge match up cards! The ladies are a hoot with the net face cover and felt hats, I believe there are eight different styles. The gentlemen all are wearing the same top hat, I guess that it wasn’t important to vary there.
I must not be awake yet because I dream that I am from a different time, when place cards, tea cozies and lace were an everyday enjoyment…
Please join Kimmie and the rest of the tea gals, and make today an event, because you all are special!
