April 3rd, PRP (post radiation party) Tea

This was an afternoon tea held for a girlfriend Cheryl, who has been battling chemo and radiation. She had her last radiation treatment a couple of days before, so what better way than an afternoon tea.
The colour scheme was pink, served scones, clotted cream,w/honey butter, tiny egg salad bites, cucumber tea sandwiches, peanut butter bannan swirls, cupcakes, strawberries with white chocolate and marscapone cheese and merangues.

Cheryl and Lynda, both cancer survivors, my mother Mary and two daughters, Tricia and Tara and girlfriend of Cheryls Sharon made up 7, just a nice intimate size.

This was something that I have wanted to do for years, something we won't forget for a longtime...

Sunday April 8th, our family Easter Dinner

My grandson Trey and I made the eggs, painted them
and then put a symbol (scrapbooking eyelet) on each
egg to represent who was sitting at each setting. Topped off with a
feather, gawdy, but we had fun.

colours were purple and silver for easter

our little chicks, they wouldn't stand so had to
leave them laying on the plate.

My Mouth shall fe filled with Your praise and with
Your honor all the day.

Tea Cozie Cottage

I'm new at this and not sure what to do. I guess I just keep typing until I figure it out. Do I tell about myself?
I'm a Christian, happily married, mother of three and grandmother of four boys. Love to read, garden, a scrapper, anything connected with tea. Past times-Scrapping, gardening, decorating, watching grandsons play hockey. My husband Frank and I have been the owners of an auction business for 40 years, our son has now taken it over called Stapleton Auctions, and we both continue to work there. We have the priviledge of living next door to it. Every auction morning I go in and decorate the auction up to make it saleable. I guess I'm a stager of sorts.
