Mother's Day

After a busy work day at The Whitney [159 tea guests] I was pleasantly surprised to pull into my driveway and see beautiful geraniums on the front porch.  My daughter came over during the day and planted them in the planters for my Mother's Day gift. I was spoiled by lots of loving kindness and thoughtfulness on Mother's Day - cards, some of which contained money and gift cards, candy, and a delicious dinner after church.  The best gift was being able to worship together at church with my three children, their spouses, and four of my grandchildren. We took pictures after church ..read more

Our church ladies' Spring Tea is now history.  A good time was had by all on Saturday, and lasting memories were made.  Below are some behind the scenes kitchen shots.  I was glad to be able to use my silverplated teapots.  I put Harney & Son's Paris blend black tea in the silver pots and Harney & Son's Peach Fruit herbal tea in the white ceramic pots. Our caterer, Francine [in black] from Pamela's catering and server Pauline.  The food was delicious!

My hubby and I hauled all my tea equipage to the church yesterday to set-up for the Ladies' Spring Tea that will be held tomorrow, May 4th.  Jerry repacked the car a couple times trying to get everything to fit.  The photo below wasn't the final packing.  In the end it was jam-packed, but he got everything in. My girlfriend, Lori, and her husband, plus one other lady from church met us there and the set-up began.  Many hands make light work so we accomplished the task in a short time.  56 ladies signed-up which equated to seven tables of eight seats. Today's a wo ..read more

I've been working on a Ladies' Spring Tea at church which will be held on Saturday, May 4th.  Below is the flier with details.  I've asked for the day off at The Whitney. In 2020 I was planning a Ladies' Spring Tea with a shoe theme called Meaningful Shoes, but it had to be cancelled due to COVID lockdown.  So here's hoping this one will take place as planned. I spent yesterday afternoon working on the favors - gluing rosebuds on clear plastic high heel shoes that will contain pink M & M's.  They remind me of Cinderella's glass slipper. Ladies will also rece ..read more

My blog page update is almost done, but a few changes and tweaks still remain so don't critique it just yet. The beginning of March I was in Meijer's store and saw some cute women's tea-themed pajamas, but I didn't buy them that day.  I was back in the store today to pick up a prescription, and decided to go over to the women's sleepwear department.  To my delight they still had the pj's but they were now on clearance.  The two bottoms [one a solid aqua color and the other a pink teacup print] were $25.20 [origionally $36] and the solid aqua color top was $12.60 [origion ..read more

Bridgerton

Bridgerton is a Netflix original TV series that debuted in 2020.  The setting is the Regency era. Episode 1 opens in London, England in 1813.  I'm a Netflix subscriber so I watched some of Season 1 but none of Season 2 and Season 3 will premiere on May 13th. [Netflix Bridgerton Photo] I enjoy the costumes, pomp [social season, balls, etc.], tea scenes with beautiful china, and British sites [Hampton Court Palace among others], but Netflix informs viewers that language, nudity, sex, violence, smoking, and substances are prevalent. Why are those things necessary? Though described as ..read more

112th Anniversary of the Titanic's Sinking

On April 14, 1912, the sinking of the Titanic took place.  More than two miles deep in the Atlantic ocean, off the remote coast of Newfoundland, sits the remains of a ship that was supposed to be unsinkable.  The Titanic has captured public interest for 112 years.  I couldn't comprehend the vastness of the Atlantic - both majestic and foreboding - until I sailed on the Queen Mary 2 from New York to Southampton last August, and I couldn't help thinking about the Titanic passengers. Today, we don't celebrate the sinking of the ship, we commemorate the 1,517 passengers who perishe ..read more

Are you a Gone With the Wind movie fan?  To commemorate its 85th Anniversary theaters are showing the 3 hour 58 minute film tomorrow, April 10th. I have blogged about the movie several times previously, and had the privilege of meeting Kathleen Maraccio, Michigan's foremost expert on all things pertaining to Gone With the Wind at two of her presentations. I think the first time I saw the film in the theater was for its 35th Anniversary, and I have both VHS tapes and DVDs of the movie. For its 80th Anniversary my hubby and I saw it at the retro Redford Theater in 2019. I've attende ..read more
