Tea with Two Patriots




Meet Mary Kate
and

Lucy

They've been busy preparing for all the July 4th festivities
and are eager to relax with a cup of tea on the porch.

They've set the tea table with Richard Ginori China
and their favorite red polka dot tea service.

Look at the star spangled 
details of this beautiful china.

Lucy chose a chocolate 
cupcake for her teatime treat.

Mary Kate has her eye on a cherry cupcake.
What flavor would you like?

It's very hot here this summer,
but they've picked a shady spot on the front porch.
Shall we join them?

All ready for the neighborhood 4th of July Parade,
Mary Kate has on her special star spangled dress.
She is very patriotic and most proud to be an American.

Lucy's mom made her dress 
with both stars and stripes.
See that big lone star?
This girl is proud to be both American and a Texan!

Looks like these proud little 
patriots found the perfect spot.

With the red, white, and blue flying in the breeze and
fireworks shooting across the tea table . . .

These two are all set 
to enjoy a patriotic tea time.

Lucy wishes you a Happy 4th of July
and

Mary Kate says,
"Don't forget to fly the red, white, and blue."

"Y'all Come Back Now!"
The dolls and everything on the table were
thrifty finds as well as the table and chairs.
You can read about the make-over here.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
