Monday Love: tea party in the garden

"Stressed" spelled backwards is "desserts".  Coincidence?  I think not! 
How was your weekend lovelies? Mine was wonderful, yet the moon was and still is round and full and i feel it's influence by ways of tiredness. Would love to spend this monday in a dreamy and tender mood, decorating the garden with pretty flowers and china and have you around for tea and something good!

  1. Hi Martina,

    Would so love to be enjoying tea with you today and love the pretty china, flowers and cupcakes.
    Have a wonderful week


  2. Oh Martina, I AM THERE WITH YOU! Your garden is probably less humid than mine is today! Even the wild life is slowed down; a little squirrel that lives in my tree in the courtyard keeps coming down to the bird bath to drink lots of water...the little bunny that sits by my window where I play my harp is so drowsy looking and today we went out for just a bit and my glasses steamed up!!!

    What lovely pictures, what fabulous ideas to make this remaining part of the summer a glorious one!


  3. Absolutely STUNNING, I would love to have tea in your garden *wink* : )

  4. everything is so pretty over here my sweet friend...I am sure that is no coincidence about those two words...I must remember this next time I am stressed! Hugs for a wonderful happy to be back and visiting you. Off to read some of your posts I missed. xoxxox Hugs

  5. Pretty pics! Never new that! Now I know why that chocolate is the first thing i want when I'm stressed!
    Too funny!
    Have a lovely day!

  6. Such pretty photographs have brightened up my Monday morning....It is so dull and raining here....Lets hope for some sun later in the week!

  13. Hi Martina,

    I LOVE that "stressed" spells "desserts" backwards. Yum! What a beautiful would be lovely if we could all get together for an afternoon of tea/coffee and desserts.

    Have a lovely week.

  14. Oh Martina dearest, we too are supposed to get more rain, but I don't think it will cool things off! IT is 117 farenheit here today!! I have been in my basement working on paper mâché and NO bunnies in the garden today; I think they are underground!!!!

    Have a great evening!!! BISES, Anita

    I hope you have a wonderful new week!

  16. I'm a tea-addict and this party looks just perfect for me :) gorgeous styling!

  17. What a beautiful way to spend an afternoon and even an evening gazing at the moon. The moon was so beautiful where I was, casting its glowing shadow over the lake.
    Enjoy your day my friend.
