A memory is a photograph taken by the heart...to make a special moment last forever...and of all the memory-pictures that happy times can bring, the best are those that families make together ~

Flowers, Cookies, and Tea ~

My day was centered around medical appointments and visiting my very sick mother-in-law in the hospital. Thankfully, she is recovering fairly well from a very bad bout of Pneumonia.   I  haven't made chocolate chip cookies in ages...we are having some heavy rains this evening, so I thought it would be a perfect time to bake. I ended up eating a bit more than I should have, but the kids really enjoyed them and not to mention how nice  the house smells. 

My table cloth is from Germany. Each time mom would make a trip back "home" she would make sure she brought back different styles of these pretty and unique tablecloths...I have two drawers full of these treasures in my antique dresser, I like to use them as much as I can. 

The vintage vase was a gift from a friend of mine...the flowers are a bit spent but decided to keep them for one more day.


  1. Oh, your table is so pretty! I hope your mother-in-law recovers quickly. Blessings, Kate

  2. Thank you, Kate...we are hoping for the best. I do love all things tea too!
