Shasta Daisies

Won't you join me for tea and daisies today? 


They are so pure and innocent ...


in a simple galvanized bucket wrapped with tea stained lace.


For the occasion I have brought out my Royal Albert 'Marguerite' teacup & saucer.


I just love a pretty marked bottom.


Dainty blue and white daisies compliment our sea of white.

Hi Donna,
I did get to check out your etsy shop and especially your cards, they are really very pretty as well as your cute tags. Very nice.
I started making cards on my computer about 6 years ago when my Mom had to be in a nursing home and was miles away from me. So I made and sent her cards everyday for about 9 months or so, and I too really loved it, and just kept making them for others as well, and and got quite proficient at it, and still love doing it.

Thanks for coming by and I am one of your newest followers.
Blessings, Nellie

Hi Donna: I so love your tablescape today--love the rough galvanized finish of the bucket with the delicate lace, and the blue and white of the cup--perfect. I have some dwarf daisies blooming away at the moment, but no full-sized Shastas in the garden right now--wish I did. Take care--have a great weekend!

Danielle said...

Thank you for stopping by and saying hello...how very nice of you. I have a fondness for white daisies...I used to bring them to my mom as a teenager...and not when I was seeking forgiveness but just because ;)

Susan said...
