the tea...

Whoo...hoo...it's Friday!  I wonder if that saying will lose some meaning when I retire from working outside the home one day? 

I didn't want the week to end without sharing some pictures of my wonderful tea last weekend.


As you can see, I replaced the plastic bucket for these pretty ceramic flower pots that I found on clearance at Michaels.  The pots will eventually end up in my sunroom with live plants in them...


I purchased these white basketweave plates from Walmart a few years back, the orange salad plates are from Homegoods and the plaid napkins and napkin rings are from Kohls.


These little gift boxes were filled with scripture tea and chocolates...


 The sweet birdhouse and little birdies were part of the main centerpiece...


I wish I could adequately put into words what this group of women mean to me...


I also wish these photos showed what an absolute blast we had...


This was no old, fuddy duddy, pious bible lady tea...


this is a group of women who love life...love to laugh...and love the Lord Jesus Christ.


We laughed hard...talked non-stop and yes, even shed a few tears.


I am truly blessed to know them...

Blessings, Patty


Stop by on Saturday I'll be linking up to My Desert Cottage for the annual Where Bloggers Create craft room link party with some photos of my craft room...

what a beautiful table setting! i love the gift idea. i know what you mean about not being able to describe how much those ladies mean to you. i have christian friends and then i have christian friends i know the Lord brought into my life. i can tell these ladies anything and they will be honest with me and not tell me what i want to hear :)its a bond only the Lord could have given us.im so glad you have friends like that too.

Hi Patty, your table is just adorable....so full of color and joy. It looks like you all had a grand time. There is nothing like having friends over to enjoy some time together.

Really pretty!

What a wonderful tea shared with wonderful friends! Very cozy and cute with your birdhouses and pots of flowers. Nothing more enjoyable than a Bible study with good Christian friends and a hearty lunch afterwards! I'm so glad you shared your photos. Have a beautiful weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

We would hate to live without laughter, smiles, hugs, and sometimes tears. Beautiful post.
