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.

  1. Sarah, What a wonderful way to start the day, with a trip down the rabbit hole! What a fantastic and fanciful hat!! I love all your colorful tidbits and vignettes…from Olivia to your frogs and beautiful MKC Taylor ceramics. Such a wonderful display of color and flowers. I’ll take a chocolate with me. I don’t have a favorite brand but love any dark chocolate, especially dark with sea salt. ♥

  3. Dearest Sarah,
    Your title made me look puzzled as you write "FancifAul". Faul in German means lazy... A mix of languages? But the A is in capital letter.
    So I guess I did slide down the rabbit hole.
    What lovely displays of a very unique Tea in the garden with such lovely flowers.
    Yes, my preference is dark chocolate for its taste, inherited that from my Dad and also due to it having less sugar.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Mariette, such are the mysteries of falling down a rabbit hole. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ My computer keyboard is playing games of late, so thank you for alerting me. All corrected now. Have a beautiful day, and as always, thank you for stopping by to visit.

    2. You're quite welcome Sarah! Title is correct but the URL will be forever the original... πŸ€—

  4. Sarah, I agree with Mary what a delightful way to start the day as I enjoy my coffee. Your vignettes are wonderful and your photos bring them to life. I would love to be present at your fabulous tea party. I have never met a chocolate that I didn’t like! Enjoy your weekend!

  5. What a wonderful fanciful tea party. I came over from Vanessa's blog, and am glad I did.

    As to your question: I don't really have a favourite chocolate. I have issues with dairy, so can't have most kinds, and though there are some vegan chocolates I enjoy, none really stands out as being an actual favourite. Though being a pretty tasty one that actually has a low pricetag, the bars from the "Moo Free" range tend to be the ones I buy most often. Luckily for me, virtual food is always allergy-free, which leaves me free to enjoy the delightful treats you're offering.

  7. Sarah, I have never met a chocolate I didn't like! Oh, I can't tell you how much your post is making me smile today....of course I love the M-C pretties, but also your collection of animal-themed pieces is what's making me giggle with delight. The tulips are beautiful, too! :D I also appreciate the Alice links, too. Stunningly gorgeous party!

  10. What a charming tea party! I adore your dessert server with the black bird on top. I'm not too picky when it comes to chocolate. I guess my favorite would be dark chocolate!

  11. White chocolate is always my favorite (which really isn't chocolate at all!).
