Garden Pals

A couple of garden pals stopped by
this weekend to help me in the garden.

Anne Estelle paper doll, HOME COMPANION, April/May 1997
Gracie paper doll, HOME COMPANION, April/May 2000

Sweet little Ann Estelle and her friend, Gracie,

came over to dig in the dirt and water the plants.

Ann Estelle reminded me that I had this cute "Pals" frame that one of my students gave me long ago. It's dated 1995. I've had it stored in a box that holds the things that sat on my desk when I taught. Now this cute frame sits on my computer desk. Thanks for the reminder, Ann Estelle.

Look what's blooming in the garden!

And the Winner Is . . .

Thanks to everyone who joined my Tartan Day Tea and left a comment. If you missed the tea last week you can still stop by. Guests are always welcome here for a cup of tea and a little shortbread.

In honor of Tartan Day 2011, this jolly Scot has a special Gold Kilt tin of Campbells Shortbread to send to one of HFTS' followers who stopped by for tea and left a comment.

In the spirit of international fairness . . .
All the comments went into a silver
champagne bucket for the special occasion.


With bagpipes piping, the winner is . . .

Donna of Conghaile Cottage

Congratulations, Donna. Send me your addy and the shortbread will arrive in time for tea at Conghaile Cottage. If you haven't met Donna, be sure to stop by for a visit. Donna always has the kettle on, and last time I looked she was serving strawberry scones. Click here for a sweet bite.
