  15. A silver and lavendar tea...sounds like a wonderful Mother's Day to me! Hope yours is wonderful!

  16. Hi Sara!

    What a lovely post on this Mothers Day! I know your Mom is elderly & ailing but I hope you got to speak to her today, even if it is long distance.

    Your tray with all the lavender items looks wonderful. We don't seem to "get" a lot of lavender around here. I guess its the wrong climate. Rarely ever see it for sale anywhere & I've never cooked with it.
    Wish we could sit & share a cuppa that tea & split a scone together.


  17. I can't think of a more soothing, and fragrant thing than lavendar. It is so lovely growing and so highly scented. A lavendare oil bath is such a treat. Fortunately, I can grow it here quite well. Your tea looks like a lovely way to spend Mother's Day. Joni

  18. I can smell the lavender Sarah. Even my dog smells like lavender after she lays on the bed ;o) Your vintage silver tea pot is lovely. Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day!

  19. What a special Mother's Day treat Sarah! Silver and Lavender, pure delight! I know your day was filled with joy!


  20. Oh how I love old worn silver Sarah. This post is so pretty. And I am so upset with myself in missing Silver Sunday...it's a favorite of mine. There's so many parties going on I need to put everything on my calendar. Have a wonderful wonderful week. xo

  21. That pot is gorgeous! Did you put lavender in your sugar? How wonderful! I do hope you have had a lovely Mother's Day! :)


  22. Happy Mother's Day, Sarah! Oh, another lovely post with the silver and lavender. I can almost smell it!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  23. Such a lovely post. The silver and lavender are wonderful and a tea is always special. Hope you had a very special Mother's Day. Hugs, Marty

  24. Can I come over for breakfast? Just gorgeous and I can smell the lavender now...have a wonderful day

  25. A beautiful post Sarah! I love lavender and planted a couple of new plants, this Spring. A good thing..the lavender in the side garden didn't make it through winter.:-(

  26. What a beautiful combination, silver and lavender. Both just make me feel all "girly".

  27. How beautiful! I'm drooling over those blackberries!

  28. You had me hooked all the way from start to finish! Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
