While she was here she told me how much she enjoyed Tea parties. So my sister and I decided to give her a Tea since we love tea parties. Queenie wanted to go shopping for a new dress and hat. So, off we went to a local boutique called Al a mode. She found a beautiful pink dress and a matching Audrey Hepburn type hat. She also found some pink rhinestones and made a necklace and bracelet.
Saturday was a warm summer day (yes, I did say summer, as it was 101 degrees at the end of September!) So we went out on the patio. We used some of our favorite tea cups and had tea and cupcakes! Yummmmmm.... The sun shone on the crystals and made a perfect crystal glow! Queenie talked about her recent visit to Australia and showed us pictures of her trip.
We talked about our dreams, our plans, dresses and parties and out love for girly things! I shared a quote with her by Henry James, Portrait of a Lady who saqid this about tea, "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."
What a true sentiment! We were sad to see Queenie leave, but she was excited to go to the Big Apple (New York) to visit some more new friends from TADS. Before she left we packed her clothes nicely in her case for her travel.
