A Year Already!

It was a year ago today that I began blogging and wrote my first post. So it's time for a celebration. I've rescued the last flowers from the garden just before the frost got them and set them on the tableI've set out my Dainty Blue tea set.

Here's a cup for you

Everything is ready for us to have a nice hot cup of tea and a good chat.Thanks for a wonderful year. You are the best and I am so glad that I've gotten to know you and can call you my friends.I hope you can stay for awhile and have a cup of tea with me and eat some of that beautiful cake.
