It's time for another blog-hop. Come along with me --- let's see what's going on in Blogland.
A Haven for Vee is participating in a 'drive by' event where she is posting pictures along with others of pretty houses and neighborhoods in which they live. In a recent post, she also posted the cutest corner shelf that I adore. I've never seen one like it before --- it's inspired me!
Charli and Me is joyfully celebrating the win of the Detroit Red Wings as the winners of the 2008 Stanley Cup - hockey fan! Such memories this fact brings up for me, as my Dad loves hockey --- playing, viewing, and talking about.
Sandy at Quill Cottage is having an "I Remember Laura" blog-a-thon and recently posted an interview she conducted with another Laura Ingalls (Gunn), the great-great-great granddaughter of the Laura we all love and know from the "Little House" books.
At Happy Wonderer Ellen took a quick trip home from her condo in California to her home in Washington and shared pictures of her beautiful garden flowers and a darling teapot and creamer she found at Goodwill. In her next post she promises to post more about the Japanese Gardens she visited while in Seattle.
Junie Moon has been sharing wonderful sewing and craft ideas on her blog. I love her idea for pretty visors to protect from the sun's rays, and her apron for a swap is darling! And don't forget to check out the toe separators! Adorable!
Mary at Kettle and Cup posted a terrific recipe for Green Tea Slush. It sounds SO yummy! I can hardly wait to try it.
Over at Like a Warm Cup they are sharing a great sounding recipe for bean dip. It's an oven version, making it a great idea for entertaining when you want to "prepare ahead".
Candyce, at My Life in Teacups has been making the cutest aprons! Be sure to scroll down her page a ways so you can see them. She's made two types --- adorable!
At 4 Reluctant Entertainers, Sandy has a beautiful post in tribute to her 89 year old auntie who just had a birthday. The pictures she shared are precious and the sweet memories of her auntie create such words of blessing.
Things are always interesting at Rosemary's Sampler. You'll have to take a look at the recipe for Rose Petal Tea Sandwiches (and there's picture too!). The most recent post is of the menu for the Queen's Tea they just conducted at Rosemary House Tea Room. Yum!
The Scrabble Queen has cherries! I cannot believe that anyone has cherries ready to harvest and eat, but there must be sunshine somewhere, 'cause there is evidence in her kitchen of the beautiful red orbs! Also, take a minute to congratulate her son on his recent graduation.
Over at Storybook Woods, inspiration reigns! Clarice has made some wonderful pillow coverings for summer (sew creative!) and is sharing wonderful ideas for creative and pretty pantry's.
Karen at Sweet Necessi-Teas has designed and stitched a most beautiful teacup tote. It's elegant and sweet in soft pink with lace and ribbon. A tiny pocket on the outside is ideal for tucking a sugar packet or tea bag into. It's so nicely done!
If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know I am crazy about lavender! Alice at Tea in My Cup shares a delicious recipe for Lavender Shortbread Cookies. Lavender is just starting to bud; it's a perfect time to pick some for this tasty culinary purpose.
Lovella's walking down memory lane over at What Matters Most. She makes a beautiful "motorcycle mama" and I am green with envy! It looks like she had a blast! Go take a look.
And last, but not least, Marie at ZQuilts has had a birthday. Pop on over and wish her a wonderful year ahead! And while you are there, take a moment to enjoy her little hummingbird pictures and view her fantastic "mixed media" projects.
What a fun journey I've had, blog hopping through Blogland. Do you know what all these blogs have had in common? Each blog writer was a participant in the Gracious Hospitali-TEA blog-a-thon and is listed on "The Tea Ladies" list. If you'd like to know what some of the others are doing as well, stop on by.
