Tea with my “Princesses”
Last week while my three granddaughters were here I thought it sweet that they had packed a separate suitcase with their fancy dresses in. They wanted a tea party while at Grandma Polly’s.

This summer I found these tea cups that are shown above, for a couple bucks at a thrift store. It is the same pattern of their great-great grandmother’s China. Great-grandma Alene’s mother Alma.
Mom these pictures are for you!
Israel called me later asking me if I could guess what the girls enjoyed most about being at Grandma’s. He said I’d never guess. It was the afternoon I let them play outside and they pretended they were planting flowers and were playing in the ashes of the fire pit (getting really dirty)! I told Israel, “yes but they also like getting really clean and dressing up!
I’ve been in need of a new hand sewing project. This summer we’re planning on an extended trip out West and I want a project I can work on that won’t take a bunch of thinking.
Been playing with velvet and hexies and I think it’s gonna be just what I want to take along.
