A warm

to this week’s Mosaic Monday

Put on your fancy hat. We’re invited to a  Island Garden tea party!

Last week I enjoyed a lovely visit with Carolyn from Aitken House and Gardens.

Strolling through her peaceful gardens,

I knew that I had found my perfect inspiration for the next Mosaic Monday!

Now . . .

One lump or two?


Thank you so much for coming by!

Drop over to Mary’s Little Red House for more Mosaic Monday inspiration.

with love,

  1. What an incredibly beautiful, inspirational post! I love lilacs so much – they don’t grow here in Atlanta, but I sure did enjoy them when I lived in Connecticut.
