Before I show you more of my favorite things (is that The Sound of Music I hear playing on the stereo) I must remember my manners and offer you some refreshments. Let's go out onto the deck.
Sit down over there. I'll sit right here. Can you see the oak leaf hydrangeas out back. They are just beginning to bloom.
Flowers on the table always make my day brighter. How about you?
Do you take milk and sugar with your tea?
The green cup I'm using is one of my favorites. It sat on my grandmother's mantel beside her Dresden figurines.
Have a cookie? Mmmm, shortbreads.
Quick, invite all your friends. I have more than enough. Let's make it a party!
