Hello Summer!

Hello Summer: The Charm of Home
It is summertime and I am outside enjoying the view with a little tea today. 

Hello Summer: The Charm of Home
This corner of my backyard is planted with a shade garden just for enjoying such as this.  My lovely little table topper is called Zinnia by Heritage Lace.

Hello Summer: The Charm of Home
I loved the vibe going on in this print.  The hand crocheted trim gives it a vintage design that makes it very appealing on the table.

Hello Summer: The Charm of Home

Hello Summer: The Charm of Home
It's hot outside so I am serving sherbet.  This is a 1960's vintage recipe for a no-churn sherbet that I got out of my Grandmother's church cookbook from Florida.  I am still trying different flavors of it.  I'll share the recipe tomorrow.

Hello Summer: The Charm of Home
The tea cup is one of my favorite!  It is Enchantment by Royal Albert.  It looks so lovely perched here on the table by the garden.  
Thank you very much to Heritage Lace for sponsoring today's tea.  The product described was provided to The Charm of Home for this post.  The written description was entirely my own.

What a pretty table topper, Sherry. It really does have a vintage look about it with the crocheted trim. Love the Enchantment teacup; such a gorgeous pattern! Thank you for sharing and Happy Summer!

Love your table topper Sherry...very mid century. The teacup does go well with it. Summer is just peeking thru today here...still a bit of overcast and drizzle. Enjoy your time outside. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
