St. Patrick's Day Parade

I'm linking to Susan's Outdoor Wednesday at a Southern Daydreamer. To see other outdoor posts, click the link.

Harrisburg hosts a St. Patrick's Day Parade. I didn't know there were so many bagpipe groups or Irish dancing troupes in the area.

I think those curls are so cute.

Day of Caring - Part 3

I'm linking up to Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Click on the link to see other tablescapes.
I've posted about our church's Day of Caring, where we acknowledged the dedication of caregivers of the disabled, when our church was transformed into a spa and tea room. Click here for the first post.
We hosted 60 women. Here are some tablescapes that were done at the luncheon. Each table hostess was responsible for bringing her own table setting and centerpiece. Aren't they lovely?
Inside the napkin on the table above was a small tube of hand lotion as a favor.

I love the bishop hat napkins.

St. Patrick's Day Tea

I'm linking to The Silken Purse. She is hosting Wednesday Tea For Me and Thee. You must check it out. It's a beautiful blog with beautiful photos.

Welcome to my St. Patrick's tea. The Irish really love their tea, and are amoungst the most frequent drinkers of tea around the world. I'm serving Twinnings Irish Breakfast tea. It is best taken with milk and sweetened to taste to bring out the best flavor.

I'm letting it steep in my Mother's antique green teapot.

I found this set at a yard sale last summer. I picked up a set for two for $3.00. I thought the pattern had a celtic design.

A perfect accompanyment to the tea are these new Girl Scout cookies, Thank You Berry Munch, out for the first time this year. They have cranberries in the cookies. Yum.

I have been looking for a pot to keep the lepracons gold. Goodwill had this little ceramic pot last week. The chocolate coins are perfect.

The centerpiece is a small shamrock plant with a decorative wooden pick.

The tablecloth was purchased at TJ Maxx.

Bedscapes and Beyond #5

Since I only have two bedrooms, and most people only have 3 to 4, I think this meme goes better with a monthly linky party than a weekly party. Therefore, I will link up for the second Tuesday of every month. The link will be up actually the second Monday evening.

This bedscape is from an open house. Euro shams serve as the headboard. They match the coverlet. Crisp white sheets and pillow cases complete the bedding.

I love this little white decorative pillow.

The walls are a similar color as my own bedroom. I love the gauzy cheesecloth bed curtains. I'm still out on having them puddle on the floor. The look fine, but I have visions of them getting sucked up in the vacuum. lol

I love the molding and the large baseboards.

Day of Caring - Part 2

Thank you Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday. To see other tablescapes, go to her blog at Between Naps on the Porch.

I posted about our church's Day of Caring earlier this week. We had a lunch for ladies who were care givers to their disabled family members. I was a table host. This is my table, along with other tables set for the event.
The church supplied the tablecloth. I took my Franciscan desert rose china, grandmas flatware and my silver piecies.

I put iced tea spoons in my Princess House glass holder.
Fresh flowers surround a pillar candle, as well as the tapers and tiny votives.

I you are interested in holding a day of caring, email me and I'll send you the planning notes.

This lovely bedroom in pink and white is by designer Phoebe Howard. It's all girlie without being too childish.
